The Asus ExpertBook lineup is made for the modern workplace while giving a high level of enterprise security. To refresh it all the same and provide better features, the company has released new laptops under the already popular lineup that include a variety of models. Without further ado, here are all the details you need to know about the new Asus ExpertBook Laptops, including its specs & features along with pricing and availability.
Asus Expertbook B9 OLED: Specs and Features
The new Asus Expertbook B9 (B9403) is the company’s ultra-portable laptop, weighing just 990 grams. This laptop is made out of magnesium-lithium alloy, so the build quality is excellent. The starting variant has an Intel 13th Gen Core i5-1335U processor, with the top-end variant having the vPro i7-1365U instead. These chips give excellent performance while remaining light on power.
The 63Wh all-day battery is extremely capable and supports 65W fast charging, too. The display is an amazing 16:10 OLED 90Hz panel with 2.8K resolution. It also comes with Pantone validation, making it suitable for content creation as well. Other notable features include WiFi 6E, a 1080p webcam, Type-C charging, and up to 16GB LPDDR5X 5200MHz RAM. Asus is even offering up to 64 GB Dual Channel RAM for more power.
Asus Expertbook B5, B5 Flip, B5 OLED: Specs and Features
The Asus Expertbook B5 series is seeing three new additions. The Asus Expertbook B5 Flip (B5402F) comes with touch-screen support on its 1080p IPS display with 400 nits of brightness. It also comes with a Garaged stylus support for productivity and has a 360-degree hinge design that allows for high versatility. There will also be a similar laptop without the Flip design (B5402C). The non-Flip variant has the same screen and very similar features, albeit with a different design that doesn’t have the 360-degree hinge.
Lastly, there is the Expertbook B5 OLED (B5602CVA), which has a 4K OLED display with 400 nits of brightness and 100% DCI-P3 coverage. This is a somewhat bigger laptop than other Expertbooks, with a 16-inch-sized display and 1.4kg weight. However, despite this, it is still quite portable overall.
All the Expertbook B5 laptops come with Intel P-Series processors instead of the U-Series, which have faster performance. The starting variants of the B5 laptops will come with an i5-1340P processor, and the highest-end CPU variant available is the i7-1370P. The B5 B5602CVA is also the only variant to come with optional Intel Arc Graphics.
