Asus ExpertBook B1 B1500C, i7-1165G7 MX330

The latest to join the ExpertBook series from Asus is none other than the Asus ExpertBook B1 B1500. As far as its design is concerned, this device has been designed for professional business use. Therefore, the build quality and chassis robustness has been constructed in a way to meet certain industry thresholds. For instance, ASUS has gone through the MIL-STD 810H US military standard test which withstands all forms of extreme scenarios, from freezing temperatures to heatwaves and drops for this particular model. The top of the chassis is most likely made out of magnesium-aluminium alloy based on the touch feeling alone. In contrast, the bottom chassis is made out of plastic with plenty of vents for airflow.
It is worth noting that the ASUS Ergolift hinge design allows the display to fold under the keyboard deck and slightly lifts the laptop off from the table. This mechanism leads to two primary benefits which includes offering better typing ergonomics for the users and also improving the overall cooling performance. This is an added advantage for those users who would love to use this device for office work.
In terms of its keyboard, the users of this 15.6-inch business laptop are more likely to benefit from the addition of the number pad even though the keys are more cramped together. In a nutshell, the keyboard is quite nice to type on and it should serve well for general office tasks. In addition, the touchpad is pretty standard with its size and aspect ratio. However, the clicking mechanism is rather underwhelming due to the nature of its design.
As for its display, this ExpertBook B1 B1500 comes with a 15.6-inch Full HD 1080p resolution. In addition, the screen surface has a matte finish to reduce glare. While the panel covers only 72% of the sRGB colour gamut, it is not as bad for an office and business-oriented laptop. In terms of its processor, this model has been incorporated with an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor paired with NVIDIA GeForce MX330. The laptop comes in with 16GB RAM with 1TB of memory. This capacity is definitely good enough for an office laptop.
In terms of its battery, this ExpertBook has been equipped with a 42Wh battery. It is worth understanding that ASUS has to sacrifice the battery size in order to accommodate the 2.5-inch drive bay. However, it is rather surprising that a single full charge can actually last for 8 hours of continuous usage which is equal to a full workday. It is quite appreciable that ASUS has done a great job at balancing the battery life and performance. Overall, this is a great laptop to be explored depending on the need and preference of the user.

81% Asus Expertbook B1 (B1500C) Review — A Blast From The Past
Source: Pokde English
The ASUS ExpertBook B1 is actually a pretty decent commercial laptop that ticks most of the right boxes. It runs pretty cool, has a good keyboard, and is relatively compact. I also really appreciate the comprehensive port selection, which includes even a legacy VGA port. The expandability is also very nice, especially since you can throw in an inexpensive 2.5″ SATA drive to upgrade your storage. The weight is on the heftier side of things, but ASUS will point you towards the pricier ExpertBook B5 or B9, if you want a lighter laptop.

As for the ASUS B1500C that we have here, we can conclude that it comes in a package that can compete with the commonly-found offerings from Dell, Lenovo, or HP. The prices do differ as these laptops are made to order – so do contact the ASUS sales team to get a quotation.

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.

ASUS ExpertBook B1 (B1500) Review: Your Next Desktop Replacement
Source: Unbox English
If you are looking for something that can replace a clunky desktop setup, the ASUS ExpertBook B1500 shows that it is one of the viable desktop replacement laptops you can buy in our review of the device for the Philippines. Being a thick and heavy laptop, the ExpertBook B1 (B1500) makes up for that with flexible expandability options and diverse port selection that include legacy ports. The ExpertBook B1 (B1500) compromises battery life with its undersized battery pack, but that should not be a big deal since people who plan to purchase this laptop will use it tethered to an outlet like most gaming laptops.

79% Asus ExpertBook B1 B1500 review: A durable business laptop with excellent connections
Source: Zdnet.com English
Supporting up to 48GB of RAM and 3TB of storage (2TB HDD, 1TB SSD), the Asus ExpertBook B1 B1500 is a versatile and potentially very capable business laptop. It's solidly built and offers plenty of connectivity, including VGA and RJ-45 Ethernet, making this a suitable laptop for offices that still use legacy monitors and wired network connections. However, these plus points are offset by a 15.6-inch screen that's short on resolution and brightness, disappointing battery life, a basic speaker and an unrewarding keyboard. Unless you really need all those on-device connections, you may find that offerings from traditional business laptop vendors such as Lenovo, HP and Dell fit the bill better.

ASUS ExpertBook B1 B1400 review – for the business experts out there
Source: Laptop Media English
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.

ASUS ExpertBook B1 (B1502) review – business features on the budget
Source: Laptop Media English
Once again, we are trying to find a place on the market for the ASUS ExpertBook B1 (B1502). There are a couple of things that need to be improved in order to make the laptop a good all-rounder. First of all – the battery. While the screen-on times are not too bad – 8 hours and 30 minutes of Web browsing, or 6 hours and 30 minutes of video playback, the 42Wh capacity is just too small. Especially considering the aging that occurs in every battery cell, which can significantly affect your battery life.Generally, all low-end business devices are plastic. However, this one also has the option of IR face recognition and a fingerprint reader that was available in our configuration. So, if you are looking for a lowkey laptop for your office, the ExpertBook is a decent balance between financial stability and a good daily device.

14.00:

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.
