Asus ExpertBook B9 B9400 Hand-on Review

I was looking forward to spending some time with the updated 2021 version of the ExpertBook B9 business ultrabook from Asus, prior to my experience with the 2020 model which was one of my favorite ultrabooks tested throughout the whole year.

The ExpertBook B9 is a step forward in terms of construction, feel, features, and even overall performance from the mainstream Asus ZenBook models, but also a more expensive product.

Last year the series was gutted by the fact that it only came with a 300-nits display, but this year Asus upgraded the panel to a 400-nits high-efficiency option, updated the keyboard, and bumped the hardware to the 11th gen Intel Tiger Lake platform with Iris Xe graphics.
