“Lightweight, so light, so light” is what pops up in my mind when I receive ASUS ExpertBook B9450FA. At that time, the device was placed in a leather case, which made me more curious about the inside design, but looking at the leather case was enough to see the high level of the device.
The organization of the company in the design to protect the skin is also enough for users and users are interested in this laptop.

Gently opening the sack and striking his eyes was a square and delicate design. The entire body is made of lithium magnesium material, which is lighter than carbon so it understands that the machine is so light. This is the thinnest laptop (14.9 mm) and light (870g) in the world today.
Although lightweight, the Asus ExpertBook B9450FA still meets the American military’s endurance standards. Aimed at business people, but the business people should be very strong machine to withstand many physical effects, as well as peace of mind on board.

This finishing method also helps prevent scratches when dust or sand fall in. And yet, the device is dark blue so make sure it does not tarnish after a long time of use.

Due to the compact design, the keyboard does not have its own number pad. To compensate, ASUS brings a virtual keyboard on the touchpad. When double-tap (tap twice) on the keyboard icon on the touchpad, this row of numeric keys will be launched.
This is a common way ASUS designs recently as a solution to reduce the overall size of the laptop but still provide a full user experience.

Whenever I want to consult with colleagues, I have to turn the laptop to the opposite person. This is very inconvenient, especially for large laptops. But ASUS ExpertBook can fold the screen 180 degrees, serving the needs of meetings, discussions, information sharing at work. The size of the ExpertBook is inherently compact, so when fully folded the screen is not too bulky.
When folded 180 degrees, you will see the heat sink of the machine. The heat sink of the device works quite well, I use it from morning to late night with many heavy tasks like Chrome or Photoshop and the machine is not too hot.

Monitors are also the selling points on ASUS ExpertBook. It is equipped with a 14-inch screen, Full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) with 100% sRGB color coverage and 72% NTSC. With an ultra-thin Nano Edge screen edge with only 4 mm side, ExpertBook B9450FA offers 94% of the size of the device. This makes the display space more spacious.
As a matter of fact, the ExpertBook’s screen is not the most beautiful, but offers a great experience in all its uses.

Overall performance score of ASUS ExpertBook B9450FA.
Typically, manufacturers only support SSDs from 256 GB to 512 GB, especially 1 TB. However, with ExpertBook B9450FA, ASUS favored when equipped with 2 TB for 1 SSD. This support helps users enhance storage capacity, without the need to purchase additional hard drives.

The duo hard drive also helps users access data faster, open the software faster.

ASUS ExpertBook B9450FA battery life is not low
ASUS ExpertBook is equipped with a battery for extreme battery life. I tested the battery with BatteryMon software, the device gave a number of 10 hours of use.
For a laptop with a thin body of only 14.9 mm and achieving such high battery life, it is commendable.
With this battery life, users can be assured of urgent work in places where there is no power to plug in the charger. ExpertBook B9450FA addresses the “thin and light battery low” concern.

In addition, ASUS ExpertBook B9450FA has an additional 24-hour (66 Whr) battery version for users to choose. If you refer to the 12-hour version, you will have 20 – 22 hours of actual use. A battery life is too big for a business laptop, right?

In many people’s minds, a thin and light laptop will not be equipped with many security features. ASUS will make you think again.
ExpertBook B9450FA offers various forms of security including fingerprint sensor, IR camera and other security software for businesses. The fingerprint sensor on the device supports fast unlocking, which is essential for business people who need absolute security.
