Reviews for the Asus ExpertBook B3 Detachable B3000

77.3% Review of Asus ExpertBook B3 Detachable (B3000): silent & slow with ARM processor | Notebookcheck
The Asus ExpertBook B3 Detachable is a small 2-in-1 laptop with an attachable keyboard. Featuring the power-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 7c Gen 2, the device is designed to let students work and learn with ease. Whilst it may indeed be good enough for the intended market, the device still has many limitations.
40% Asus ExpertBook B3 Detachable review: A flexible PC that feels punishingly slow
Source: PC World English
At the end of my time with the Asus ExpertBook B3, I was left with one question: who is this for? The marketing makes it seem like it’s for frontline workers or the education market, but I’d feel bad handing this off to an employee and even worse for the kids stuck with this in a computer lab. It’s also available on Best Buy for anyone to purchase, which I’d advise against unless it’s deeply discounted. Even without thinking of competing options, there’s not a great case for its $600 price. Even with stellar battery life, included accessories, and a nice screen, the Asus B3 reminds us that Windows on a Snapdragon chip can still have a lot of drawbacks, especially in a cheaper configuration like this. Sure, the overall experience has improved a lot on the high-end with the Surface Pro 9 and ThinkPad X13s Gen 1, but for now you may want to steer clear of these low-end Snapdragon Windows PCs.

Review – ASUS ExpertBook B3 Detachable B3000: Windows on Snapdragon is….. interesting
Source: NLT English
And I’m not blaming Intel or ASUS for this disappointment. It’s because Microsoft did not improve Windows on ARM architecture. It’s been more than a year since I last reviewed a laptop with a Snapdragon chip – and it was still running on Windows 10 at that time. Fast forward to today, and it’s still the same. By the way, the ASUS ExpertBok B3 Detachable in Malaysia is only available with this list of specs at the price of RM2,099.

This is a standard display format for tablet computers or small convertibles. You see more on the screen than on a smartphone but you can't use big resolutions well. On the other hand, mobility is not a problem.
