Built for on-the-go business professionals

With its unique Star Black finish, the new ASUS ExpertBook B9 has an understated but sleek aesthetic. Housed in a chassis milled from magnesium-lithium alloy, the B9 is tougher yet more lightweight than previous magnesium-alloy models, with a 14.9mm thin profile and weighing in at a mere 995 grams. A 14-inch screen with a frameless NanoEdge display provides a more immersive viewing experience and compact, 13-inch footprint.

Be prepared to use the ExpertBook B9 for a full day’s work. The four-cell, 66Wh battery is rated for up to 24 hours of productivity. Fast-charging support brings the battery level up to 60% of maximum capacity in just 39 minutes.

Top-tier performance

The ASUS ExpertBook B9 gets its performance from an up to 10th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor, up to 16GB of RAM, as many as two 2TB M.2 SSDs in PCIe 3.0 x4 slots, and next-gen Wi-Fi 6 networking. The B9 is also certified by Intel’s Project Athena, an innovation program that establishes standards for consistent responsiveness away from wall power, a demanding baseline for battery life, the availability of comprehensive connectivity, and a drive for sleek form factors.

When at a desk, the B9 makes it easy to increase productivity via support for an external monitor through the full-sized HDMI port on the laptop’s left side. Two adjacent Thunderbolt 3 ports support display connectivity as well, along with fast-charging and external storage. There’s even an Ethernet interface accessible through a physical micro-HDMI port on the same side, for workplaces that require a wired connection for IT management or simply for situations in which wireless network connections are weaker. Over on the right side, users get one USB-A 3.1 Gen 2 port and a 3.5mm jack for mic and audio.

Professional-grade durability and security

The ASUS ExpertBook B9 is equipped with robust military-grade durability, surviving numerous MIL-STD-810G laboratory procedures including drop tests, shock tests, vibration tests, high temperatures, low temperatures, days of 95% humidity, and hours of sand and dust exposure. Pairing a Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM) security chip, a webcam shield and a built-in IR camera for safe biometric logins, the B9 offers rock solid security to help users safeguard business data and maintain personal privacy.

Other thoughtful design touches include the ErgoLift hinge for more comfortable typing sessions, a quad-microphone array that supports far-field and noise cancellation for videoconferencing, IR camera covers, and a light bar on the front of the laptop that activates when using built-in support for Microsoft Cortana and Amazon Alexa. The B9’s sound system is also optimized by Harman Kardon, with down-firing speakers that benefit from signal processing to make adaptive adjustments over time, improving clarity and filtering out noise. For data-intensive workloads, the B9 is the first business laptop to include the exclusive ASUS NumberPad 2.0 technology, an LED-illuminated numeric keypad built into the touchpad.

Seamlessly integrate mobile with MyASUS software
