Reviews for the Asus ExpertBook B1 B1400C, 1165G7 MX330

ASUS ExpertBook B1 B1400 - disassembly and upgrade options

ASUS ExpertBook B1 B1500 review – they have probably cut the right corners this time
Source: Laptop Media English
Like every laptop out there, the ExpertBook B1 B1500 has its ups and downs. Impressively, the performance is one of its advantages, as it puts the Core i7-1165G7 to good use. Additionally, you have quite a good amount of upgrade options, as well, including one SODIMM slot, an M.2 slot, and a 2.5-inch SATA drive bay. At the end of the day, ASUS didn’t do a bad job with that laptop. They could have made it better, but generally, we feel that it matches the expectations set by the price. After all, something should be given up in order to make the device more affordable.

72% ASUS ExpertBook B1 B1400 Review – Tough business laptop that covers all the bases
Source: Hitech Century English
The ASUS ExpertBook B1 B1400 represents a highly durable and powerful ultraportable with a useful NumberPad 2.0 touchpad, generous amounts of storage as well as a diverse variety of ports. In its most powerful configuration, the laptop proves to be an immensely capable, if slightly heavier than usual business laptop that is ideal for paperwork related tasks though the middling display which has modest colour accuracy in all possible variants mean that it’s not the best choice for content creators.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce MX330: Successor of the MX230 and most likely a renamed GeForce MX250/MX150 based on the Pascal GP108 chip with 384 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i7-1165G7: An upper mid-range, quad-core processor of Tiger Lake product family. The i7 is designed for use in ultra-light (yet actively cooled) laptops; it is manufactured on Intel's third-gen 10 nm process marketed as SuperFin. The CPU cores run at 2.8 GHz (base clock speed @ 28 W TDP) to 4.7 GHz (single-core Boost frequency). This i7 features the 96 EU Intel Iris Xe G7 iGPU; it was the second-fastest CPU of TGL-UP3 line-up when Intel initially launched the series in 2020.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. is a major Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer based in Taipei, founded in 1989. Under the Asus brand name, the company manufactures a wide range of products, including laptops, desktops, motherboards, graphics cards, monitors, smartphones and networking equipment, complete systems and PC components for end users.

Under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand name, ASUS manufactures gaming laptops known by gamers for their powerful specifications, dedicated graphics cards, high refresh rate displays and advanced cooling systems.

Beyond gaming, a wide range of notebooks are offered for different needs and budgets, from ultra-slim and lightweight ultrabooks to versatile 2-in-1 convertibles and budget-friendly options. In 2023, Asus had a 7% global market share of the PC market.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.


72%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
