Reviews for the Asus Expertbook B5 B5302C, i7-1165G7

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.

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.
