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.

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.

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 second-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.

1.73 kg:

This weight is typical for very old and big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal; nowadays, rather typical for 15 inch laptops.

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).

81%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
