ASUS Launches ExpertBook B9450 Laptop for Business Professionals

    B9450

    Fremont, California (April 6, 2020) - ASUS today announced the launch of the ExpertBook B9450 laptop, the latest ASUS ExpertBook for business professionals that provides unmatched performance, durability and design within an incredibly thin and light form factor weighing in at just 2.2 lb1 with a 0.59 inch thin profile. The new ExpertBook-series laptops maintain a professional and reliable personality while incorporating innovation and flexibility in order to meet the requirements of modern businesses.

    Designed for business professionals on-the-go, the ExpertBook B9450 delivers top-tier performance thanks to up to an 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor, dual-storage design with two ultrafast 1TB PCIe® 3.0 x4 SSDs, and up to 16GB of RAM and Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax) connectivity. Expect uninterrupted performance on the B9450 with long-lasting battery life delivering up to an impressive 24 hours2 of use on a single charge, with extra comfort features like the ErgoLift hinge, built-in voice assistant support, and a Harman Kardon-optimized audio system. In addition to being built to last with military-grade durability, the B9450 takes security seriously with an integrated Trusted Platform Module 2.0 (TPM) security chip to keep business-critical data safe with a built-in IR camera and single-touch fingerprint unlock capabilities that allow biometric logins for personal privacy. Stay prepared for any business scenario with full range of input/output options including two Thunderbolt™ 3 and HDMI ports and the exclusive ASUS NumberPad 2.0, an LED-illuminated numeric keypad built into the touchpad for fast data entry.

    Verified by Intel’s Project Athena as engineered for mobile performance, the ASUS ExpertBook B9450 offers exceptional performance, fast connectivity, unmatched reliability, and rock-solid security.

    Built for on-the-go business professionals

    With its unique Mgcote Slab Grey finish, the new ASUS ExpertBook B9450 has an understated but sleek aesthetic. Housed in a chassis milled from magnesium-lithium alloy, the B9450 is tougher yet more lightweight than previous magnesium-lithium alloy models, with a 0.59-inch thin profile and weighing in at a mere 2.2 lb.

    Other thoughtful design touches include the ErgoLift hinge for more comfortable typing sessions, a 180-degree hinge for easy collaboration, a quad-microphone array for videoconferencing, IR camera cover, and a light bar on the front of the laptop that activates when using built-in support for Microsoft Cortana and Amazon Alexa. The B9450’s sound system is also optimized by Harman Kardon, with optimally-positioned speakers that benefit from signal processing to make adaptive adjustments over time, improving clarity and filtering out noise.

    Top-tier performance

    The ASUS ExpertBook B9450 gets its powerful performance from an up to 10th Gen Core i7 Processor, up to 16GB of LPDDR3 memory, as many as two 2TB M.2 SSDs in PCIe 3.0 x4 slots, and Wi-Fi 6 networking. The B9450 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 B9450 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 also an Ethernet interface on the same edge, accessible through a physical micro-HDMI port using an included RJ45 dongle, that’s ideal for workplaces that require a wired connection for IT management. Over on the right side, users get one USB 3.1 Gen 2 port and a 3.5mm jack for audio.

    Be prepared to use the ExpertBook B9450 for a full day’s work. The two-cell, 33Wh battery is rated for up to 12 hours of productivity, while an available 66Wh power source can last as long as 24 hours under the same workload. Fast-charging support brings either battery option up to 60% of maximum capacity in just 45 minutes.

    Professional-grade security and durability

    The ASUS ExpertBook B9450 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, a Kensington lock slot and a built-in IR camera and single-touch fingerprint reader for safe biometric logins, the B9450 offers rock solid security to help users safeguard business data and maintain personal privacy.

    Seamlessly integrate mobile with MyASUS software

    The latest ASUS ExpertBook B9450 includes the latest version of the MyASUS software. The software now allows seamless integration with mobile devices, using the Link to MyASUS mobile app that's scheduled for release in early 2020. New features include fast and easy wireless file and URL transfers for users who need to share files or web links seamlessly between their PC and mobile devices; Remote File Access for accessing data on mobile devices from a laptop, anytime and anywhere; and smooth multitasking using the screen mirroring and screen extender functions that give users an auxiliary display for cross-referencing and other uses.
