86.5% Asus ExpertBook B9450FA Review: Ultra light and high endurance | Notebookcheck

100% Asus ExpertBook B9450 Laptop Review
Source: Sydney Morning Herald English
With prices from $3,199, Asus ExpertBook B9450 is not cheap for individual buyers, but the price that will actually be paid by companies will likely vary considerably according to their IT service providers. What we can say is that it’s incredibly well built, a joy to use and ticks every box for a business-friendly ultraportable. Demanding power users might find it a bit slow, but this should be near the top of every mobile worker’s wishlist.

Asus ExpertBook B9 review: Everything else feels heavy now
Source: Soycincau English
And of course there’s its ridiculous weight. I’m not even joking when I say that every other laptop feels too heavy to me now—and it’s not every day that I get my perception completely flipped.

ASUS ExpertBook B9450F Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS ExpertBook B9 checks out in everything an on-the-go professional would need. It has a color-accurate screen with slim bezels, powerful processor, large RAM, high-speed storage, a pleasant keyboard with a functional trackpad, security features, and a long battery life. All of that is housed in a slim and lightweight chassis that not only looks good but is tough as well.

ASUS ExpertBook B9450F Review: Battery Monster That’s Impossibly Light
Source: Unbox English
ASUS did a lot of things right with the ExpertBook B9450F. It’s incredibly light, tough, and sturdy – things that are needed in a notebook meant for the corporate world. Its screen is pretty good, and despite its faults it more than enough for daily use, perfect for meetings in coffee shops when it’s finally safe to venture outside. Its battery life is insane too and has the longest run time of any notebook we’ve tested so far in Unbox. Of course, a premium notebook like this isn’t going to be cheap, and while ASUS has yet to announce local pricing for the notebook, we expect it to be close to Php 100K for the top-tier variant.

The Asus ExpertBook B9 (B9450) represents an impressive new milestone for Asus with a stunning combination of power and endurance in the lightest chassis in its class. If money is no object and you prize portability and performance, this should be your top pick.

Review – ASUS ExpertBook B9450: A different kind of premium thin and light laptop
Source: NLT English
We’re rather familiar with ASUS’s lineup of laptops. We have the VivoBook family as the budget-oriented option, and then we have the ZenBook family for premium thin and light laptops. And then out of nowhere, we now have the ASUS ExpertBook family, which offers a completely different look and feel. It is also targeted towards enterprises, but available in other variants for consumers like you and me too.

86% Asus Expertbook B9 (B9450) Review — Ultra-Thin, Ultra-Light
Source: Pokde English
Now, the moment of truth. Is the ASUS ExpertBook B9 worth the RM9299 asking price? All things considered, I do not think I will pay that much for this laptop. I would rather opt for the lesser options which offer half the storage and no Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for RM1000 less. Or, just opt for the Core i5 variants, since there’s not much reason to opt for the Core i7 variant here anyway. If you really want raw performance, you should look at AMD-powered laptops like the VivoBook S14, instead of Intel-powered ones.

90% Geek Review: ASUS ExpertBook B9450
Source: Geek Culture English
All in all, the ExpertBook B9450 is truly the ideal laptop for you if long-lasting battery life, and an ultra-portable laptop that is not only super lightweight but also incredibly durable is what you are after. It offers rather average performance overall, as seen on the benchmark tests, but its other features more than makes up for it. This business laptop will cost you S$2,298, which is still a little cheaper than some of its competitors in the market.

ASUS ExpertBook B9450 Review – Best business thin and light notebook?
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
It’s quite a deal breaker to see that the ASUS ExpertBook B9 was not able to perform up to expectations. It’s holding us back from recommending it, as we know that you will be paying for something but not able to achieve its full performance. Instead, we would recommend that you should explore into a lower SKU, such as the one with the Intel Core i5 processor instead. It should produce less heat, and therefore have a probable chance of performing even better than the Core i7 version.

83% Asus ExpertBook B9450 review: An ultralight with ultralong battery life
Source: CNet English
Sheltering in place means hours spent working and videoconferencing at home -- and on the couch or in bed, for some of us. That means battery life and lap-friendliness remain relevant even if you're not traveling or working in oddball places. But as much as I like the 14-inch Asus ExpertBook B9450 for its strengths in that respect, its price tag may be a little offputting, especially given its relative weaknesses compared with less expensive models.

Sheltering in place means hours spent working and videoconferencing at residence — and on the sofa or in mattress, for a few of us. That means battery life and lap-friendliness stay related even for those who’re not touring or working in oddball locations. But as a lot as I just like the 14-inch Asus ExpertBook B9450 for its strengths in that respect, its price ticket could also be a little bit offputting, particularly given its relative weaknesses in contrast with cheaper fashions.

85% Asus ExpertBook B9450FA review – a solid high-tier ultrabook
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This is Asus's best ultrabook to date. It nails many aspects I would want in a modern 2020 ultrabook: it's well built and ultralight, it's one of the best performers in its category, it includes one of the larger batteries in its class and doesn't compromise on inputs, IO or features. However, the rather dim matte screen and the lack of any other display option could be deal-breakers for some of you, as well as the choice to go with a quad-core Comet Lake hardware implementation. Don't get me wrong, it performs admirably, but still fades in comparison to the IceLake and six-core Comet Lake hardware you'll get with the competition. We get in-depth on all these aspects in the review down below.

Let's start with what the laptop does right: The ExpertBook B9450 has a very attractive, midnight-pearlescent chassis that is both superlightweight and durable. The 14-inch, 1080p screen is relatively bright and vivid, and the anti-glare finish makes it great for outdoor use. But the clear highlight of the ExpertBook B9450 is its ridiculously long battery life, which lasted for more than 16 hours. It's worth reiterating: that's longer than any other laptop.

As someone who travels a fair amount for trade shows like CES 2020, I like to travel as light as possible when I’m roaming the convention floor. At a scant 1.9 pounds, the Asus ExpertBook B9450 seems like it be right up my alley, especially when you toss in the durability and security features.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


87.18%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
