Made for Business Professionals.
Asus may have always been known to make high-end consumer and gaming notebooks, but it hasn’t forgotten its business customers as well. Today, the company has announced the ExpertBook B9, a notebook made for professionals on the go that offers performance and durability needed by business users.
The 14-inch ExpertBook B9 weighs just 880 grams and is only 14.9-mm thin, making it the world’s lightest business laptop. There’s a frameless display that allows a 14-inch screen to be placed inside a 13-inch laptop chassis. What’s more, there’s also the same ErgoLift hinge that raises the keyboard for a comfortable typing experience. Asus also says that the long-lasting battery can deliver up to 24 hours of runtime – though that’s something we have to see for ourselves.
The ExpertBook B9 is powered by a 10th Gen Intel Core processor with 16GB of RAM and a 1TB M.2 NVMe dual-storage design. For I/O ports, you’re getting two Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI ports along with the trackpad also transforming into a numpad for easier data entry.
Security-wise, the ExpertBook B9 has an Integrated Platform Module 2.0 (TPM) security chip to keep data safe along with an IR camera that is used for facial logins. The notebooks are also certified by Intel’s Project Athena.
The ExpertBook B9 is also equipped with military-grade durability, where it has survived numerous MIL-STD-810G laboratory procedures that include drop tests and exposure to different kinds of temperatures.
The Asus ExpertBook B9 is priced at 9,999 AED and will be available starting today through its distribution partners Redington Gulf and Trigon LLC as well as EMAX, Virgin Megastores, and Noon.com.
