The Asus ExpertBook B9 is the world’s lightest business laptop, and it has impressive build quality and plenty of office features. Combine that with the decent screen, battery life and keyboard and you’ve got a great productivity option.

74% Asus Expertbook B9 (B9400) Review: Sets A New Benchmark For Business Laptops
Source: Think Digit English
The ASUS Expertbook B9400 is a first-class business laptop that stands out from the multitude of enterprise notebooks out there on the market. Its ultra-portable form factor is an appealing draw on its own, but the laptop truly shines with its battery life and performance. ASUS has also peppered it with some truly desirable features like a physical shutter/kill switch for the webcam, a virtual numeric keypad on the touchpad, Windows Hello support, and more to make it an unequivocal ultrabook recommendation.

88% Asus Expertbook B9 (B9400Cea) Review — An Evolution In The Right Direction
Source: Pokde English
On the surface, the ASUS ExpertBook B9 might seem like a pretty standard refresh to the ASUS ExpertBook B9 (B9450). But on top of offering an upgrade to the 11th Gen Intel Core processor, it does pack quite a few extra improvements this generation. There’s the ASUS AdaptiveLock proximity sensor to improve privacy, AIPT for better performance in burstier workloads and a brighter display, all of which come together to result in an even better laptop than its predecessor, which we awarded the Best Ultraportable Laptop of 2020.
