Asus X44L-VX003V Notebook Review

Asus X44L-VX003V

The Asus X44L-VX003V Notebook has an Intel Core i3 2.1GHz dual-core processor and 4GB DDR3 Ram. This notebook has a large amount of ram in comparison with many of the same models at this price. This notebook has the Intel HD Graphics 3000 Built-in CPU graphics which allows for a rich media experience. The onboard graphics are low end for gaming but should allow games 2+ yrs to run on low settings fairly well because of the 4GB ram. If you are not looking particularly at this notebook for gaming or high-performance video editing, then this notebook could be a good option for you.

Portability is a key factor with the Asus X44L-VX003V Notebook, offering a 14” LED screen and a generous amount of ram editing documents and performing your daily social media tasks should be a breeze. The Asus X44L-VX003V Notebook has a USB 3.0 port which allows you to connect a USB 3.0 device such as an external hard drive to the notebook which will allow a much higher transfer rate than USB 2.0. The unit also includes one standard USB port.

The Asus X44L-VX003V Notebook comes with excellent networking features. Wireless 802.11n and also Gigabit LAN makes a super fast networked experience.

A webcam and DVD are standard fitted as well as a card reader. No HDMI though it does include a VGA out port. Battery life with the included four-cell battery could be better though the other specs and features for this notebook are beautiful.

With a matte plastic case, this makes it much easier to keep looking clean compared to most glossy black notebooks out there. The finishing touch to the Asus X44L-VX003V notebook is the cool palm rest; heated parts are moved away from the palm rest to avoid heating and hot hands.
