Summary: just not sure why it's so slow to respond... haven't had the patience to dig deeper, soooo And it can't be blamed on the internet, cuz I'm keeping it offline till I've studied all the settings as a new pc...
Summary: I had a need for a personal laptop. This ASUS was on sale. It had most of what I wanted. I got it. It did what I asked for a year. As others reported, it had VERY loud clicks next to the touchpad. Annoying when anybody else was around. I finally figured out I could configure the touchpad so that a multifinger tap was the same as a right click, then I seldom ever used the buttons again. After a year things started slowing down.
Summary: I would sell the Win8 I have now, but I need Win8 for work. So I sell the Win7 which isn't being made anymore! Many older people I think will have trouble with Win8 and want to go back to Win7 - and be searching for those computers, not wanting to compromise their new Win8 laptop by uninstalling 8 and installing a copy of Win7. Bad idea... Win8 computers are built differently.
Summary: Received as a Xmas gift. Fires up very quickly. Lightning fast surfing. Excellent display. Very good battery life. Solid construction. Perfect size. After 4 months of heavy usage I have no negative comments! ***UPDATE: Still going strong!!! 6/21/13. ###Update: Still going strong and still using the original battery!!! 8/22/14.
Summary: Bought this computer from Best Buy 3 years ago for $300, wtf with the $379 pricetag?! As a long using IT professional I do highly recommend this. Longest lasting laptop (notebook) I've ever had that was able to perform well over many years of abuse. Hell, this thing can play most late-2013 video games without too much trouble at all. For such a small price, this is real performer.
Great Office computer: Asus X44H-BBR4 14" Notebook Computer I3-2330m 1gb 500gb Windows 7

Summary: I have owned 3 ibooks, two hp laptops and many desktop PCs. All of them had little quirks. This Asus is a great machine, I purchased Asus X44H-BBR4 14" Notebook Computer I3-2330m 1gb 500gb Windows 7. purchased 4 months ago from best buy. Daughter has a 10 inch one. I purchased 4 GB Ram and took out the 1 GB Ram and installed it easily. I have had normal windows crashing issues. A program like Outlook will crash once a month or so.
Summary: Please pardon this review since it is on the Asus X44H 4GB Memory - 320GB Hard Drive - Brown, not 500gb as in the above listing which could explain the price point difference I paid vs. this listing. Everything else appears the same. My Asus X44H 4GB Memory - 320GB Hard Drive - Brown is 2 months old now and overall very pleased with the product. The one star deduction is for the Asus Live Update Utility Software explained below. I bought the X44H at Bestbuy on 12/18/11.
