If you’re on the lookout for your next business laptop or are due for a hardware upgrade, you seriously need to consider ASUS’ new ExpertBook B9. While the Taiwanese company isn’t as established as other players like Dell or Lenovo in the corporate space, they’ve been constantly been creating innovative laptops through their ExpertBook line in the past few years, and have pretty much created the perfect notebook for business travelers in the form of the ExpertBook B9.
The ASUS ExpertBook B9 is pretty much the perfect laptop for corporate types that require a thin and light device that they can slip in their bag. The laptop is barely bigger than a legal-size piece of paper, yet packs a large 14-inch, full HD display that has 100% sRGB color gamut coverage. Even with its incredibly slim bezels, ASUS managed to squeeze in a VGA webcam on the lid, which means your team will be able to teleconference with you without a hitch. There are even two microphones flanking it for crystal-clear audio pickup too.
The ASUS ExpertBook B9 isn’t just incredibly compact, it’s also almost unbelievably thin at just 14.9mm when closed. And as incredible as that sounds, the ASUS ExpertBook B9 is impossibly light too, coming in at just 995 grams, making it the lightest laptop in the world. Don’t think for a second that you’ll be starved for ports and connectivity though – despite being one of the thinnest notebooks in its class, the ASUS ExpertBook B9 still sports a USB 3.1 port, two Thunderbolt 3 ports as well as a full-sized HMDI port.
Despite being so light, the ASUS ExpertBook B9 is incredibly tough as well – with the notebook passing and exceeding MIL-STD 810G US standards during testing. The magnesium-lithium alloy chassis isn’t just thin, it’s also incredibly durable, which almost guarantees the ASUS ExpertBook B9 will last longer than the last notebook you used for work.
Being thin and light won’t matter if you’re always rushing to the power socket between every meeting, and even here the ASUS ExpertBook B9 doesn’t disappoint. Its Intel Core i7-10510U processor is incredibly power-efficient, and the notebook has enough juice to run for a full day – 24 hours – on a single charge. You can fly from here to Paris and still have enough juice to have a sit-down meeting with a client.
If you’re still on the fence with the ASUS ExpertBook B9, you shouldn’t be. It’s one of the lightest, toughest, and longest-lasting laptops in its class, and is probably one of the best, if not THE best 14-inch business notebook you can buy right now.
