New professional notebooks coming to our shores
After being announced early this year, ASUS is bringing its 2020 line of ExpertBooks and ProArt StudioBooks to the Philippines. For the ExpertBook line, this will be headlined by the ExpertBook B9450, which is touted as the lightest business laptop at 870 grams. Aside from being light, its 14,9mm thin frame is a tough one with its use of a lithium-magnesium alloy.
While it is a 14-inch business notebook, ASUS fits that panel on a 13-inch footprint with NanoEdge bezels. Other features include 10th-generation Intel processors, ErgoLift hinge, a trackpad that doubles as a numpad, 4x 360-degree far-field microphones, WiFi 6, webcam shutter, and a battery rated for up to 24 hours.
The ProArt StudioBook is ASUS’ line of laptops for professional creators, which is headlined by the ProArt StudioBook X. The 17-inch laptop brings in all the bells and whistles with NVIDIA’s Quadro RTX 5000 discrete GPU, Core-i7 or Xeon processors, NanoEdge display, and ScreenPad 2.0. Aside from the ProArt StudioBook X, ASUS will also bring in the ProArt StudioBook One, and ProArt StudioBook Pro in 15-inch and 17-inch models.
Both the ExperBook and ProArt StudioBook will go official in the Philippines on June 20.
