ASUS Malaysia just announced the new ExpertBook B5 lineup aimed at business users. The laptop comes in three configurations, two of which sporting the latest Intel Core i7-1360P vPro Essential (ExpertBook B5 OLED), and the third model featuring vPro Enterprise version of the Core i7-1270P (ExpertBook B5 Flip OLED). The vPro Enterprise version enables additional management features such as remote device erase and one-click recovery (details here).

The convertible aluminum and magnesium-alloy chassis features a 16-inch, 16:10 4K+ OLED panel and supports 100% DCI-P3 color space, with the B5 Flip OLED gaining touch and stylus support. All models feature Wi-Fi 6E, configurable RAM up to 40GB DDR5-4800 (8GB soldered onboard), two SSD slots with optional RAID 0/1 support and the range-topping model getting optional Intel Arc A350M graphics.

ASUS touts the lightest configuration of this laptop drops the weight down to just 1.4kg – light enough for ASUS to claim a world record for it. However, that model comes at a cost of smaller 50Wh battery to slash weight, but other versions comes with bigger 84Wh battery that can last up to 14 hours with a minor weight penalty (which you’re unlikely to notice).

Other features include TPM 2.0 chip for enhanced security, physical webcam shutter, MIL-STD-810H military standard certification, spill resistant keyboards and ExpertWidget for mapping custom hotkeys. The price starts at RM7,699 – covered under 3 years of global warranty, battery warranty and 1-year Perfect Warranty.

Pokdepinion: For a 16-inch laptop, that’s a very light chassis.
