The model number is actually X556UF but it has been rebranded as R558UF for some reason by ASUS in India. If you look at Windows System information it will show the model number as X556UF. The Asus website page for this model is here.
Regarding specs it has Core i5 6200 in charge of processing which belongs to the latest Skylake generation from intel. Skylake CPUs have better power management than the previous generation Broadwell but the processing power is more or less the same. Graphics department is handled by integrated Intel HD 520 and nVidia GT 930M which is a lower mid range GPU. So far I have played NFS Most Wanted 2012 and Far Cry 2 on this laptop and the card handled both games flawlessly at highest settings. RAM can be upgraded to 12GB. The main bottleneck is the hard drive though I think can be swapped for an SSD. Build quality is impressive. The lack of indicator lights for caps lock and num lock is the thing I dislike most on this laptop. Another kickass feature is the presence of an USB 3.1 type C port which can transfer data at blazing speeds. Though not many devices use type C at this moment consider this as a future investment. Overall the laptop is a solid investment and you cannot get anything better than this at this price point.
The best you can get under 46k!

Not wasting too much time typing the spec sheet which already are specified on amazon..I would just say that go get some additional 4 or 8 gigs of ram..and install it in the laptop...and you get a perfect machine for all your tasks...be it gaming,surfing,programming or anything you may want to do.
A few softwares and games that I have tested :
Fifa 16 - works flawlessly at high settings
Gta 5 - works great at medium settings...and very much playable at very high settings
Android studio - takes about 10 seconds to load
(Pretty fast for a non ssd laptop I would say)
Adobe after effects - works great!!

Great performer with little drawback

Using this laptop for about a month by now.. Speed is excellent for a i5 processor.. Those who need some performance for running high end applications.. This is the right one for you.. Built quality and battery life is also good.. Only disappointing factor is the display though it is a Matt display.. Color reproduction is really bad and dull.. Cannot be used for designing purpose.. Everything else is good.. Especially gaming experience..
Amazon poor in product discription
