Reviews for the Asus AsusPro B9440UA-GV0094R

ASUS ASUSPRO B9440 review – ASUS’ first official attempt at business-oriented laptops
Source: Laptop Media English
And by the end of the day, is it still worth it, considering all the trade-offs and the current price? Probably not, unless you demand this exceptionally portable piece of machinery. In any other case, you can add just a few more grams, a few millimeters (barely noticeable in our opinion) and you can get the latest alteration of the XPS 13 (9360) or we can even go further with the HP Spectre 13, which fails at everything the ASUSPRO is good at but offers two Thunderbolt 3 connectors and it’s still amazingly thin and light. Smarter alternatives would be the 14-inch Acer TravelMate P648, the Lenovo ThinkPad T470 or the Dell Latitude 14 7480 and even the Apple MacBook Pro 13. All of which put usability before portability, yet they remain in the ultra-portable category.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.05 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
