ASUS is officially launching their ExpertBook B9 and ProArt StudioBook notebooks in the Philippines. Built for the professional market, these notebooks come with military-grade certifications and top-tier specifications in order to be suited to any kind of tasks you throw at it.
ASUS ExpertBook B9450 series
Geared for the serious office worker, the ASUS ExpertBook B9450 is a lightweight companion to bring anywhere. With a starting weight of 870g, the notebook still packs the latest hardware such as Intel’s 10th generation processors and up to 24 hours of runtime for its 66Whr versions.
The ExpertBook B9450 series of notebooks come with a 14.0-inch display in a 13.0-inch body. Inside its chassis, aside from the aforementioned Intel 10th generation processors, are up to 2TB of PCIe 3.0 x4 NVMe storage, up to 16GB of RAM, and WiFi 6 connectivity. In addition, you still have access to two Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI ports for expandability.
ASUS is also integrating their past innovations with the ExpertBook B9450 notebooks. These notebooks now use the ASUS NumberPad 2.0 previously found in ZenBook notebooks. For the uninitiated, the ASUS NumberPad 2.0 pretty much combines the touch pad and the number pad together in one easy to use pad.
