ASUS has unveiled enhancements to its 14-inch ExpertBook B9 OLED and B5 series laptops, setting new benchmarks in the business laptop segment. The ExpertBook B9 OLED, in particular, stands out as the lightest 14-inch business laptop globally. Powering these laptops are the cutting-edge Intel P series processors, which come integrated with Intel vPro support for enhanced performance and security.
Both the ExpertBook B5 and B9 OLED laptops are packed with features tailored for the modern business professional. The B5 model boasts a 14-inch FHD anti-glare display, with its flip variant supporting touch capabilities. Under the hood, the ExpertBook B5 is driven by the Intel Core i7-1360P processor, complemented by 16GB RAM and a 1TB storage capacity. For those concerned about privacy, its HD IR webcam comes with a protective shutter and facilitates facial recognition via Windows Hello. Connectivity is also a breeze, thanks to WiFi 6E, Bluetooth 5, and a myriad of ports such as USB PD 3.0, Thunderbolt 4, RJ46 Ethernet, HDMI 2.1, and 4K display output.

On the other hand, the ExpertBook B9 OLED showcases the Intel Core i7-1355U processor, a memory configuration that goes up to 32GB, and storage that can extend to 2TB. The laptop's 14-inch OLED display is a visual treat, rendering 3K content and covering 100% of the sRGB and DCI-P3 color spectrums. A 90Hz refresh rate ensures smooth visuals, and like its B5 counterpart, it also features an FHD IR webcam with Windows Hello support. With a feather-light weight of just 2.18 pounds, it redefines portability.
The new ExpertBook series doesn't compromise on battery life either. The laptops house a 63Wh Lithium polymer battery, ensuring longevity in usage. Notably, the power button doubles as a fingerprint scanner, adding an extra layer of security. Both models also benefit from a spill-resistant keyboard, AI noise cancellation, voice assistant capabilities, Intel Smart Sound, and Dolby Atmos audio technology. They come pre-installed with the Asus Business Manager software to streamline tasks. In terms of pricing, the ExpertBook B5 and its flip variant start at $1,699, while the B9 OLED is priced from $2,149.99.
