The ExpertBook series promises ultra lightweight notebook solutions to business executives who are always on the go. After announcing them three years ago, ASUS has refreshed the product line with new models and specifications to cater to a wider variety of use cases and audience. In order to better meet the requirements of the sophisticated customers of today, ASUS has just released the ExpertBook B9 OLED notebook at COMPUTEX 2023.
Upgraded with better cooling and components
In our previous review of the ExpertBook B9450, we found that the notebook wasn’t able to properly cool itself well, resulting in poorer than expected performance. Understanding these limitations, ASUS has now introduced a new smart cooling solution which features a dual fan setup.
It also comes with a new 16:10 WQXGA+ OLED display which will give users a better viewing experience. The new 16:10 ration also give more vertical space to its users for more content to be viewed on the same screen.
The ExpertBook B9 OLED is also now updated with the latest 13th Generation Intel Core processors with Intel vPro support, providing better efficiency, performance and security.
Staying true to its brand, it still retains a lightweight and durable design. Even though it weighs in at only 990g thanks to its magnesium-lithium material, it still retains its MIL-STD 810H US military standard certification.
ASUS Carbon Partner Service
The ExpertBook B9 OLED is also one of the products within ASUS’s Carbon Partner Service. ASUS Carbon Partner Services aids businesses to reduce their carbon emission targets.
The ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED exemplifies these sustainability efforts as the first magnesium-lithium ASUS laptop to employ Thixomolding — a manufacturing technology that reduces waste by up to 29% and shortens manufacturing time by up to 75%. The notebook is made with up to 70% post- industrial recycled metal and packaged in materials certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), ExpertBook B9 OLED is ENERGY STAR ® certified and can reduce carbon emissions — exceeding the ENERGY STAR energy-efficiency standard by 44%.
