ASUS just launched a new generation of its flagship business laptop, the ExpertBook B9. The latest edition of the device pairs a 12th Gen Intel vPro CPU with Intel Iris Xe graphics. It features several tools for business, including an AI-enhanced webcam, AI noise-canceling, and a TPM 2.0 chip. The ASUS ExpertBook B9 is available now with a starting price of $1,841.
One of the biggest draws of the ASUS ExpertBook B9 is how little it weighs. The 14-inch laptop comes in at 880 grams, making it the lightest 14-inch laptop in the world, according to ASUS.
The ExpertBook B9 features a 14-inch display that fits inside its 13-inch body thanks to thin bezels (and the fact that display size is measured diagonally while chassis size is not).
Despite the small form factor, ASUS promises up to 16 hours of battery life on a single charge, which should help on longer flights and business trips according to the laptop's maker. Note that to get longer battery life you'll need a model with a 66 Wh battery, which bumps the weight of the laptop to 2.21 lbs.
