Reviews for the Asus ExpertBook B9 B9400CE-KC0166R

87.1% Asus ExpertBook B9 Laptop Review: Tiger Lake offers a decent boost in performance for the ultra-mobile flyweight | Notebookcheck
The 14-inch ExpertBook weighs less than 1000 grams (2.2 lbs) and gets a significant boost in performance this year, thanks to a new Tiger Lake chip. Moreover, the Asus laptop now comes with Thunderbolt 4 instead of Thunderbolt 3 and the display has gotten brighter. But did the new version get only the reasonable upgrades or is there something to be critical about? Read our extensive review to find out!
Asus ExpertBook B9 Review — Powerful, lightweight and a delight to use all day
Source: Ausdroid English
The Asus ExpertBook B9 is an impressive bit of kit that, if you’ve got the budget, I’d happily recommend for regular and heavy users of laptops. The cost is likely to be a bit of a problem for some, but I’d suspect towards Christmas if you keep your eyes out, you may find it for under $2,000.00, which is well worth the price.

80% ASUS ExpertBook B9 2021 review: lightness personified
Source: 91mobiles English
The ASUS ExpertBook B9 has been priced precariously at the top with a lot of contenders vying for the premium ultrabook category. The device certainly has the goods to back up its claim with its extremely light design, powerful internals, decent speakers and really good battery life. If you’re looking for a highly portable and easy-to-carry Windows machine, the ExpertBook B9 is a choice that won’t disappoint.
