The ExpertBook B9 OLED delivers premium quality and design while remaining one of the lightest 14-inch business laptops in the world—lighter even than many 13-inch laptops on the market according to Asus. It’s made out of premium magnesium-lithium alloy, Asus claims is the lightest metal alloy in the world.

The laptop is packing the latest 13th Generation Intel Core vPro processor and up to 64 GB of memory, plus a smart-cooling system to increase performance by 36%. It’s running the Windows 11 Pro with multiple layers of security including optional TPM 2.0 to keep data secure and protect privacy.

It has an OLED display with 16:10 aspect ratio, 2,880 x 1,800 resolution and 90% screen-to-body ratio. The ExpertBook B9 is US MIL-STD-810H and ASUS durability tested and there’s a touchpad that’s 26.8% bigger than before —enhancing both navigation and control.

There’s a full range of I/O ports including Thunderbolt 4 USB-C, USB 3.2 Gen 2, HDMI, combo audio jack, and LAN.
