The new 14-inch ExpertBook B5 and B5 Flip laptops feature a precision-crafted and minimalist chassis that pushes the limits of lightness. Both the top and bottom covers are cut from pure aluminum, while the area around the keyboard is formed using magnesium-aluminum alloy. The premium materials and careful construction keep the weight down to as little as a feather-light 1.25 kg, and as thin as 1.79 cm, while ensuring that the machines are ready for the rigors of everyday use in the office or on the go.

They’re also engineered to empower all-day productivity, with a battery life that has the endurance to last for up to 11 hours on a single charge.

Packed with power: Up to Intel Core i7, Iris Xe graphics, 40 GB RAM, WiFi 6E and dual 2 TB SSD

ExpertBook B5 and B5 Flip are primed to perform, with the latest up to 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with vPro support and Iris Xe graphics, 40 GB RAM and WiFi 6E — ensuring quick and responsive computing, superb graphical performance and ultrafast wireless networking. They also feature two SSDs to provide up to 2 TB capacity and extreme-speed data reads and writes. These drives also support RAID 0/1 technology for faster operation or improved data reliability.

Enterprise-grade: Intel vPro, TPM 2.0, biometric login, webcam shield and garaged stylus

When it’s time for work, both B5 and B5 Flip empower the user to excel, with a range of features to enhance both security and productivity.

Robust, multi-layered security features ensure that confidential and private data does not leak out. These include support for the Intel vPro platform for superior business protection, an integrated fingerprint sensor, an IR camera for face login, a physical webcam shield for instant privacy and an optional TPM 2.0 chip keep attackers away from private data. There’s even an integrated Kensington Nano lock slot, making them quick and easy to secure.

Productivity-enhancing features include two-way, AI-powered noise cancelation for high-quality communications and optional ASUS NumberPad — the exclusive illuminated touchpad that doubles as a numeric keypad — for crunching numbers. B5 Flip also includes a fast-charging garaged stylus, with a 15-second top-up providing enough power for up to 45 minutes of use — so the user is never left waiting to work.

No-compromise connectivity: Thunderbolt 4, microSD, Ethernet and HDMI

These latest ExpertBook B5 models are loaded with I/O ports to ensure seamless connectivity with a wide variety of both modern and legacy devices.

Each model includes cutting-edge Thunderbolt™ 4 with support for the next-level USB4® interface, 40 Gbps data transfer speeds, triple 4K display output and fast charging, plus a microSD card reader, Ethernet port, USB Type-A and an HDMI® output. There’s even an integrated RJ45 Ethernet port, with a unique MAC address for easy device management.

Built to endure: Ready for extremes with US military-grade strength, plus sustainable design

Life on the road is tough, so the new ExpertBook B5 and B5 Flip models are designed to meet and surpass exacting industry thresholds — including the ultra-demanding MIL-STD 810H US military standard. This means they’re built to survive every extreme, from freezing temperatures to the searing heat of deserts, and high-speed shocks as well as everyday bumps. They also undergo stringent in-house testing, including panel-pressure, shock and drop tests for an assurance of serious durability. Even the keyboard is resilient, engineered to resist everyday spills and splashes.

All ASUS ExpertBooks are engineered with sustainability in mind, and these latest models are no exception – with ExpertBook B5 and B5 Flip earning both ENERGY STAR® and EPEAT certifications.
