ASUS' latest ExpertBook comes ready for business and weighs just 870g.

Billed as the lightest 14-inch business laptop around, the ExpertBook B9 features then latest Intel Core i7-10510 processor, integrated Intel graphics, 16GB of LDDR3 RAM, up to 2TB of on-board SSD storage and a 14-inch LED backlit FHD display with thin bezels. 

On top of a MIL-STD 810G grading for durability, the ExpertBook B9 also comes loaded with ports. This is a slim laptop that doesn't cut corners when it comes to traditional USB ports, HDMI outputs and headphone jacks. Even compared to light laptops, the ExpertBook B9 is a featherweight to handle.

As for battery life, ASUS are talking a big game here with 24 of promised usage on a single charge.

No word yet on whether the ExpertBook B9 will come to Australia, nor how much it will cost when and if it does. Personally though, I'm looking out for it. Weight is a pretty fast way to stand out in the laptop space and the B9 excels on that particular front.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
