If you haven’t heard yet, ASUS also has makes laptops that aren’t just for gaming. Meet the ASUSPRO B9440UA — an ultra-light machine for the business people.
Yup, it’s ASUSPRO, not ASUS Pro. But before the bizarre branding puts you off, hear us out first as this device is quite interesting. As what I have said, this new laptop is meant for the elite and the entitled. Not only because of its lavish price tag, but also due to its set of features.
For starters, this thing is built for those who are on-the-go. It is 14-incher that only weighs 2.31lb. It is also one of the thinnest out there at only 8.9mm at its thickest point. The B9440UA is also built like a tank with an MIL-STD 810G durability rating. This all-metal notebook is said to withstand brutal drops and its hinge can last for up to 50,000 open/close cycles.
Of course, an on-the-go laptop would be useless if it dies in the middle of your trip. Hence, the portable laptop packs a 48Wh battery that promises 10-hours of life. In case you run out of juice, you can easily top it up to 50% in just 30 minutes.
There’s an Intel Core i7-7600U processor inside that serves as the main brain of the ASUSPRO B9440UA. There’s also an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 for some graphics lifting, but not for heavy gaming leisure. The 16GB LPDDR3 RAM can surely assist you in dealing with all your workloads, and the 512GB PCIE GEn3 SSD makes sure your machine is ready at a snap.
