Reviews for the Asus ExpertBook B1 B1400CEAE-EB0116R

We were really pleasantly surprised by the performance of this machine. Although the internal temperature of the device was pretty high with the “Performance” preset, the clock speeds were pretty much unmatched in the long run. This means you can compile your code faster, or do more things at the same time without the device lagging behind your enthusiasm for work. We have to say that this is mainly thanks to the decently-calculated cooling solution, the ErgoLift mechanism, and the enormous vent on the bottom panel. Now it’s time for some cons. Although the I/O is super wide, it lacks a MicroSD card reader. This is weird because the product images of this laptop clearly show the presence of such a slot. Additionally, we aren’t particularly happy with the rigidity of the plastic base. On the bright side, it houses a pleasant keyboard and a fingerprint reader embedded onto the power button. At the end of the day, ASUS is making a strong statement that it’s intending to battle for the top places in the business laptop market. It won’t be easy for them, but they are clearly on the right track.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
