ASUS announced the launch of ExpertBook B9, the next generation of the 2020 Red Dot Design Award-winning mobile PC powerhouse.
ExpertBook B9 (B9400CEA) is the world’s lightest 14-inch business laptop, empowering business professionals to thrive in the modern world with leading-edge technology and features. Verified as an Intel® Evo™ platform laptop, ExpertBook B9 delivers premium performance and responsiveness, efficient battery usage and stunning visuals. With the rise of remote work, modern business professionals have increasing telecommuting needs.
Speaking about the new ExpertBook B9, Leon Yu, Regional Director, System Business Group, ASUS India & South Asia said, “Our vision is to innovate and build solutions that are aesthetically well crafted, by understanding what our users think, feel, and do. The ExpertBook B9 is engineered to improve your on-the-go work efficiency, provide extraordinary performance along with extraordinary battery life, ensure comprehensive connectivity and security thus setting a new benchmark in business laptops. Powered by an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, the ExpertBook B9400 is the master of lightness and power, making it an ideal partner for Business Leaders who value both performance and persistence in the corporate world.
Commenting on the launch of the ExpertBook B9, Roshni Das, Marketing Director, Intel India said, “Intel® Evo™ verified notebooks including the ASUS ExpertBook B9 are co-engineered and designed to deliver exceptional laptop experiences from anywhere. Powered by the 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics, they deliver the remarkable responsiveness and long battery life that business users need to stay productive wherever they are.”
The latest ExpertBook B9 models inherit all the strong features of the previous generation, engineered with the latest cutting-edge up to 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processors with Intel® Iris® Xe integrated graphics for serious performance and visual excellence, RAID 0 and RAID 1 technology support, Thunderbolt™ 4 for flexible connections at warp speed, AdaptiveLock proximity sensor for ultrafast logins and security, and AI noise-cancelation technology for undisturbed video calls – perfect for the increasingly remote working patterns imposed by the current pandemic environment.
Despite these vast improvements in performance and functionality, ExpertBook B9 is still one of the world’s lightest 14” business laptop1 – weighing a mere 1005 grams and that’s including the massive 4-cell 66Whr battery. It also offers close to a full day battery life, it’s good for days of real-world use between recharges.
Committed to creating a sustainable future, ASUS has also strived to make ExpertBook B9 an environmentally conscious choice. It is both Energy Star® 7.1-certified and rated by EPEAT™ Gold, offering an assurance of energy efficiency that reduces operating costs over the long term. Even the packaging is environmentally sound, with the accessory box able to transform into a laptop stand for instant elevation with an ecological nod.
ExpertBook B9 is incredibly thin and light, and encased in a magnesium-lithium-alloy chassis, yet still has room for a battery that lasts for days of real-world use. The 1005 g ExpertBook B9 packs a 66 Wh battery that stores enough juice for close to a full day – all in a 14.9-mm-thin profile.
Fast-charging support thanks to the 65W USB-C charging brings the battery up to 60% of maximum capacity in just 49 minutes, so there is no need to worry about downtime on the road.
Brilliance in performance
ExpertBook B9’s appeal doesn’t end with svelte dimensions and all-day battery life, though. Being superfast, secure, full of storage and connections to handle all the business situation professionals will encounter is what ExpertBook B9 pursues relentlessly – with the latest model packing the some seriously powerful specifications.
These are led by new and high-performance 11th Gen up to Intel® Core™ i7 processor with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics which delivers discrete-level graphics performance for next-gen media experiences and 16 GB LDDR4x 4266 MHz memory. There’s also superfast Intel® Wi-Fi 6 and huge storage in the form of up to dual 2 TB SSDs with support for RAID 0 and RAID 1 technology for improved data reliability or faster operation.
Despite its thin profile, ExpertBook B9 is loaded with I/O ports. These include cutting-edge Thunderbolt™ 4, the next generation of the universal cable connectivity solution that offers support for the next-level USB4 interface, 40 Gbps data transfer speeds, dual 4K display output and fast charging. It also offers standard USB Type-A and HDMI outputs, plus a wired network connectivity with a unique MAC address for easy device management.
US military-grade durability
ExpertBook B9 is remarkably durable, too. To be strong enough for every journey, it meets the next-level and industry-leading MIL-STD 810H US military standard test, which is more rigorous and demanding than ever before. It is also subject to drop tests, shock tests, vibration tests, extremes of high and temperatures, and days subjected to humidity levels of 95%.
Our engineers took things even further to prove that ExpertBook B9 is built tough. Connectors are inserted and removed from the ports 5,000 times, up to 30 kg of force is placed on the reinforced lid, keys are struck 10-million times, and the lid is opened and closed up to 50,000 times. We also intentionally spill various liquids on the keyboard. After all that, we’re confident that ExpertBook B9 is able to withstand the rigors of the daily grind.
A mobile workhorse with smart features
Despite it’s the ultrathin bezels of its 14-inch NanoEdge display, ExpertBook B9 includes both a webcam for video calls, plus an infrared camera and smart proximity sensor for fast biometric face login. The moment the user sits in front of ExpertBook B9, ASUS AdaptiveLock technology detects their presence and the infrared camera to recognize their face before logging them in automatically — so it’s possible to get to work without lifting a finger. Then, when the user steps away, ExpertBook B9 automatically locks itself, protecting both the laptop and the personal data it contains.
With the increase of remote work and video conferences, we also implemented exclusive ASUS AI noise-canceling technology to ensure the best experience. ASUS AI noise-canceling audio employs machine learning in order to isolate unwanted noise from human speech. The ClearVoice Mic feature in the MyASUS app can filter out ambient noise and, in Multi-presenter mode, normalize all individual voices from different positions for optimum group conference-call quality. The ClearVoice Speaker feature filters out all ambient noise apart from human speech — making it easy to hear what everyone else is saying.
ExpertBook B9 also features up to four 360° far-field microphone and Harman Kardon-certified speakers to ensure clear sound. It also includes a virtual assistant with Amazon Alexa integration, plus a built-in light bar that illuminates during interaction.
Of course, ExpertBook B9 features the exclusive ASUS NumberPad 2.0, the renowned LED-illuminated numeric keypad that is perfect for crunching numbers. Tap the NumberPad icon on the top right of the touchpad to turn it on, and tap the icon on the left to toggle between two brightness settings. Clever software provides control over the cursor, even when NumberPad 2.0 is activated.
Security is a paramount key concern in the modern world, so ExpertBook B9 is equipped with many measures to ensure that both the hardware and the user’s data are kept safe. An integrated fingerprint sensor makes signing in as simple as one touch, while the aforementioned biometric-login webcam benefits from a physical sliding shield – so it just takes one swipe for the visual reassurance of a covered lens.
ExpertBook B9 also offers an optional Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip to stores passwords and encryption keys for added security. There are also software-based tools offering numerous and diverse protections, including ASUS Business Manager and the optional ASUS Control Center.
ExpertBook B9 combines beauty, brains and brawn
ExpertBook B9’s thin chassis and light weight would seem to be at odds with its rugged construction and high-performance specifications, but our engineers made sure that performance, durability, and longevity came together in perfect harmony. A combination of cutting-edge technologies enables high efficient video conferencing, seamless login, and snappier responsiveness in a smaller, lighter form factor. Extremely portable, powerful and tough, ExpertBook B9 is the ideal partner in the corporate world.
