Reviews for the Asus ExpertBook B9 B9403CVA-KM0153X
High performance and long battery life at the same time. Compactly built and well equipped at the same time. The Asus ExpertBook B9 achieves the feat of being a laptop without any notable weaknesses. More so as the equipment leaves hardly anything to be desired - for a price.

The Asus ExpertBook B9 OLED is a solid notebook, but it suffers the same issue that most business laptops do — it's expensive. Therefore, all of its features need to be top notch in order to justify the price. Yeah, we got the nice keyboard, the portable and durable chassis, and even a sharp panel. But that won't make up for the short battery life and middling performance. Take a look at the HP Dragonfly. It's a little cheaper, has longer battery life, and a more vivid display. However, if you're really into the ExpertBook's style, it's not a bad purchase, but don't expect it to last longer than an average workday.

ExpertBook laptops have always been very interesting and successful representatives of the business category. The ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED has proved this once again. It has almost everything you could want from such a model. A compact, lightweight, yet very durable body with reinforced ports and hinges, a gorgeous OLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, high performance in work tasks, a comfortable keyboard with splash protection. And, of course, long battery life. The laptop has no obvious weaknesses. The only thing that would have been nice for a complete communication package is an LTE module, which is available in some models of the line. And the price of the laptop will not be affordable for everyone. Corporate models are often quite expensive.

ASUS ExpertBook B9 is the perfect solution for the businessman who is not tied to his workplace. Such a light, compact device will be comfortable to work at home, take it with you to the office, co-working or business trip. But despite the small size, the laptop is highly productive for its segment of devices. It is clear that it is not gaming, but it copes with work tasks easily and quickly, which is clearly proved by the tests I conducted. From myself I will say that it was very convenient to work or view content on it, and my wife liked to write her book on it. So I recommend this laptop to anyone who wants to work comfortably on a computer, wherever they are and whatever they do. I can say with confidence – ExpertBook B9 will be a reliable assistant. If I was looking for a comfortable laptop for work, I would definitely take ExpertBook B9 for three important reasons: it is lightweight, productive and stylish. I believe that a modern ultrabook should fulfil exactly these needs.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
