Asus ExpertBook B5 B5302FEA, 1115G4

Asus is rapidly carving a niche out in the business market with their enterprise oriented ExpertBook range with laptop models for all levels. The latest to join this family is the Asus ExpertBook B5 Flip which is intended to equip the ranks of middle management with a blend of features and performance ideal for a workplace or work from home mission profile that does not require a fortune. While the top of the line, the ExpertBook B9 uses the latest and most premium materials like a magnesium-aluminium alloy internal chassis, the ExpertBook B5 Flip opts for a more affordable and slightly heavier aluminium chassis. However, it still incorporates magnesium-aluminium alloy around the keyboard area to keep the overall weight down. With a weight of 1.1kg, the ExpertBook B5 Flip remains one of the lightest 13-inch convertibles in the market and one of the slimmest as well at 16.9mm thin. This laptop is definitely light and slim enough to make it portable enough in a handbag or a backpack. The top lid of the B5 Flip is made of aluminium and a matte dark grey bordering with a blue finish. The overall lid texture is fingerprint resistant. While there is a tiny bit of give in the middle of the lid if it is prodded hard, there is no obvious flexing in the rest of the top lid. At the corner, the device has a tiny indicator light to indicate if the user is on video call. This definitely comes in handy in the new normal. As for its keyboard, it is spill-resistant and is rated to survive with up to 66cc of liquids without damage. The B5 Flip comes in with a 13.3-inch LCD touchscreen display with 1080p resolution for a great viewing experience.

On the left of the ExpertBook B5 Flip, there are two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports to charge the laptop and to allow for output to external 4K displays, a micro-HDMI port, a physical volume rocker and a trio of indicators for power, storage and CPU activity. On the other hand, the right side houses a Kensington lock to secure it from theft, a HDMI 2.0b port, a single USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack for headphones or a microphone and a power button which doubles as a fingerprint reader. As mentioned earlier, our ExpertBook B5 Flip review sample from ASUS uses a different 11th Gen Intel Core i3-1115G4 CPU from retail units which will use an 11th Gen Intel Core i5 or i7 so benchmarks will differ. In terms of its performance, this laptop has been equipped with the Intel 11th Gen Core i5-1135G7 processor paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. This combination is definitely best suited for basic office work. It is sufficient enough for web browsing, processing Word documents and shoveling through emails. This model has a 66Whr battery with 65W USB-C charging. Overall, it is a great office laptop to be explored, depending on the need and preference.

68% ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip Review (B5302F)- Cool Flippable Work Convertible
Source: Hitech Century English
The ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip is a durable convertible with a decent touchscreen and 360-degree hinges though performance is contingent on what processor you get with the 11th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 for the Malaysia market being your best bets for competent portable performance.

Hands On – ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip B5302F
Source: Tech Critter English
The ASUS ExpertBook series is probably my favourite series of laptops especially when you factor in the price. The mid-high-end Lenovo ThinkPads and Dell XPS are brilliant, but the price tag will set you back a couple thousand more expensive. I’d say the material choice and design contributes to the reason why the ExpertBook series is not just lightweight but looking professional as well. Pairing all the above with the 11th Gen Intel Core processor, what you get is a compact and power-efficient laptop to get things done.

72% Geek Review: ASUS Expertbook B5
Source: Geek Culture English
The Expertbook B5’s bit of flair comes with its trackpad, which doubles as a number pad with the ASUS NumberPad 2.0. By tapping the top right corner of the trackpad, a number pad appears on the trackpad and can be then used as such. However, when that happens, the function of the trackpad and number pad are laid over each other, so it takes a bit of getting used to. There is also a fingerprint reader integrated with the power button on the right side of the laptop. It is a nice addition, and works well, even if it can be a bit awkward to access at times. Overall, the Expertbook B5 is an enterprise laptop that lives and dies by its compact 13.3-inch display. It is small enough for those who are looking for a laptop with the size and portability of a tablet, though its size also means that it’s unlikely to be one’s main workhorse. The price starts at S$1,698 and is justified by its hardy build quality, though it’s the type of laptop that will make one yearn for an upgrade if it’s the only laptop at one’s disposal.

71% Asus Expertbook B5 (B5302C) Review – Needs A Power Up
Source: Pokde English
Based on our review unit, the ASUS ExpertBook B5 is a pretty good enterprise laptop. It’s powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core CPU, has two Thunderbolt 4 ports, good array of security features, good display, very lightweight, MIL-STD-810H build standard, Numberpad 2.0 is convenient to have, comfortable keyboard, and MyASUS being a very useful, user-friendly software suite. It’s not the perfect laptop however as the speakers are subpar, the battery life is short, there is no touchscreen support, RAM is clearly lacking, performance could be a little better, and it doesn’t come with a memory card reader. For enterprise users, this should be capable of handling work well enough unless it’s particularly resource-intensive. For that, I award the ASUS ExpertBook B5 with our Bronze Pokdeward.

88.3% Asus ExpertBook B5 Flip in review: Compact and enduring convertible ideal for university, office and sofa | Notebookcheck
The Asus ExpertBook B5 Flip B5302FEA is available as a campus model with a price advantage for students, teachers and others. But the convertible with Intel Core i5-1135G7 and enduring battery is also a good choice for the regular, hardly higher price, as our review shows.

Source: The Indian Express English
With a starting price of Rs 1,39,000, the Asus ExpertBook B5 comes with a good mix of features and specifications making this an all-round work laptop for most working people. The highlights are the excellent design, the reliable performance, and the display panel. The overall compact and lightweight nature of the device is another plus point. Do note that the laptop weighs only about 1.3kgs. These are the key aspects in a good business laptop and the ExpertBook B5 ticks them all.
