Laptops come in a variety of shapes and forms, but opting for a thinner model usually means sacrificing performance and battery life. ASUS hopes to change that with a new MacBook Pro competitor, which the company says is the thinnest 14-inch laptop out there.
The ASUS ExpertBook B9 is available now after ASUS announced a series of ExpertBook announcements a few months ago. According to ASUS, this particular laptop is the lightest 14-inch laptop currently available on the market, measuring 1.49 cm (0.59 inches) thick. It’s powered by Intel’s 12th Gen Core i7 silicon (not the latest, but still very respectable) and also uses the vPro platform, meaning it’s a great option for business and getting work done on the go.

This ASUS laptop claims the title for the thinnest 14-inch laptop.
Despite the thin design, ASUS promises an impressive battery life. The official estimate is 16 hours of battery life, but remember that PC manufacturers’ battery estimates are always best-case scenarios. You also get a 1TB SSD and 16GB of DDR5 RAM.
If you want the laptop, you can buy it on Amazon now. ASUS is asking $1,840.85, which is pretty steep for a laptop — although it’s certainly comparable when compared to laptops like Apple’s MacBook Pro line. It’s definitely one of the best premium Windows laptops you can get unless you’re into gaming.
