Welcome to Tech Story Part 2 and in this article we will be doing the review for ASUS ExpertBook B9450. The Lightest Business Laptop. This is supposed to be the world’s lightest business laptop. it’s a new series from being launched by Asus known as the expert series.
ASUS ExpertBook B9450: Release Date
This is just one of the products that Asus is going to launch in India. ASUS ExpertBook B9450 going to be officially launched on 21st September. Let’s, have a closer look at this laptop and I feel this is a product for professionals/ who want a really light laptop but want everything in it.
I don’t know the pricing as of now because it’s going to be launched in India around 21st of September. Actually I was checking US pricing specific this is the highest end variant core i7 with one terabyte SSD and everything 16GB RAM this is priced at about 1700 us dollars.
ASUS ExpertBook B9450: Build Quality
ASUS ExpertBook is also pretty light because of the magnesium lithium alloy. this is having actually a larger battery size.
Also this is 995 grams hence they call it the lightest business laptop. It also has a fingerprint scanner. so again if you’re wearing a mask or something you can use the fingerprint scanner also.
In this laptop we got a screen that’s a 14” inch screen.
but before i talk about the screen notice how narrow the bezels are and stuff.
We also have a privacy shutter that I like. You can actually shut off the camera if you want using the slider.
ASUS ExpertBook B9450: Side ports
If you move towards the laptop side the main ports are over there. You see a micro port, an adapter, a ethernet adapter in the box so you can attach it and use wired ethernet connection in some of the business use case scenarios.
On the other side we have a USB Type-C port. and then you have a combo for your headphone microphone. ASUS ExpertBook has an Alexa. if you’re going to use it this works. that’s what it is regarding the physical overview.
ASUS ExpertBook B9450: Battery
This one has a fairly big battery that’s a 66 watt hour battery. I’ll talk about the battery life later on because i was getting some terrific real world results. Now talking about the keyboard. i actually like the keyboard. it also has that back lighting. you can adjust it three levels there. and the key travel is surprisingly good on this one.
It was very very comfortable to type and I enjoyed it. Actually typing on this one so the keyboard layout I like and the key travel is also good.
OS, RAM, Processor
Thing is that if you notice the trackpad size is significantly big on this one and yes it works well. Moving to the specs ASUS ExpertBook B9450 is a business centric users windows 10 professional is actually pre-installed on this one. A specific variant that we have is the core i7. as I’ve told you we also get it with the core i5 and come this one is having 16 gigabytes of ram. and one terabyte of SSD. You will have slightly different configurations available also in India with the core i5. the cpu that has the core i7 10th generation. main board is obviously made by Asus memory 16GB ddr dual channel. memory is not expandable but i feel 16 gigabytes is more than enough. overall i would say in day-to-day performance and everything i had no issues with the laptop.
In ASUS ExpertBook B9450 it comes with 1TB SSD and you notice it has a very fast SSD.
This is a reason even you boot up and you wake up from sleep almost instantly going to wake up.
Also it has fingerprint scanner so if you wear a mask or something you can use this.
Let’s talk about the battery life Which was a big highlight to me. Marketing material they say you can get about 20 to 24 hours. I don’t believe in all those things so i ran my own benchmarks. these are real world results guys after using this laptop for more than a week. If you go down as you can see in the real world I’m averaging about 12 hours to about 11 hours on this laptop which is amazing. in earlier thin and light laptops i used to get about eight to eight and a half hours but this 11 to 12 hours.
Battery life is something that really amazed me on this laptop. I have told you the performance is also very very good on this laptop. this Laptop handles everything that you throw on it without any issues, never had issues of wake up or anything on this.
In fact this product feels premium. It doesn’t feel cheap or anything. It doesn’t feel that the materials used are cheap or anything. i feels actually really good and Asus also claims that I got the reviews guide.
This is actually military grade 810g. so again i should be able to handle all the stress that you should use in your daily uh usage.
so guys that was the laptop and i completely forgot guys this laptop does come with wi-fi six. I did test this laptop and yes it latches to wi-fi six connections. and it’s blazingly fast on wi-fi six of course it works with wi-fi in our office We have wi-fi also. In general performance it was very good and I really enjoyed using this laptop. it does not compromise on the performance and the build quality is certainly very very good.
This is a laptop for business professionals who are looking for a high-end laptop. they want a very light laptop sturdy laptop and with excellent battery life. The battery life was the surprising point for me. in real world usage guys not that synthetic benchmark or all that i’m getting about 11 to 12 hours of usage with this laptop.
ASUS Expert Book thoroughly impressed with this laptop. Are you looking for the premium windows laptop you can certainly have a look at this.
let’s see how Asus India prices this laptop in India. Anyways guys that’s it for now thanks for visiting out site. i hope to see you next time take care guys
