Co-engineered with Intel for its Project Athena program, the laptop is designed to deliver the same type of performance experience you get from your phone.Part of Intels verification requirements is a battery life long enough to get you through an entire workday; the base model B9450 gets up to 12 hours, but you can get it with a larger battery that doubles that time. And itll charge up to 60% in 39 minutes.The components are pretty much the same as what were seeing from competitors in the category including processor options up to a 10th-gen Intel Core i7-10510. Where this Asus stands out is the design. Along with being light, the magnesium-lithium alloy body is tested to Mil-Spec 810G standards for drops, shocks, vibration, dust resistance and more.One thing you definitely wont find on others is the NumberPad 2.0, an LED-illuminated numeric keypad that appears on the touchpad when you tap an icon in its upper right corner. Whats nicer is you dont have to turn it off to use the pad for cursor control because the software is smart enough to know the difference.The ErgoLift hinge is nice, too, which puts the spill-resistant keyboard at a more comfortable angle for typing on such a thin laptop. Also, just below the touchpad on the front edge is light that works with the integrated Amazon Alexa support letting you know when the digital voice assistant is active.Pricing wasnt announced, but Asus expects the ExpertBook B9450 to be available some time in Q1 of this year.
