Asus ExpertBook B9450FA asus This is Asus\'s best ultrabook to date. It nails many aspects I would want in a modern 2020 ultrabook: it\'s well built and ultralight, it\'s one of the best performers in its category, it includes one of the larger batteries in its class and doesn\'t compromise on inputs, IO or features. However, the rather dim matte screen and the lack of any other display option could be deal-breakers for some of you, as well as the choice to go with a quad-core Comet Lake hardware implementation. Don\'t get me wrong, it performs admirably, but still fades in comparison to the IceLake and six-core Comet Lake hardware you\'ll get with the competition. We get in-depth on all these aspects in the review down below. Asus ExpertBook B9450FA This is Asus's best ultrabook to date.

    Hello, thank you for review.
    What you think ExpertBook B9450FA vs Microsoft Laptop 3?

      Much nicer screen on the Surface laptop, pretty good keyboard as well. This is lighter and lasts for longer on a charge, more affordable and offers much better IO and improved performance. Pros and Cons on both side, but I think you're getting a little more with this.

    Thanks for the great review.

    Do you think that this B9 is more confortable to use and better in compare to the X1 Carbon 7th (or 6th) gen ?

      Depends, in some ways yes, such as form-factor, weight, design, battery life and performance, while in others not that much, because the X1 Carbon is more configurable, available with different screen options and hardware specs.

        In terms of typing experience (palm rest, keyboard, inclinaison, stability) what do you prefer (X1 Carbon 7th vs B9)? And which one have the better FHD display in your opinion?

          The X1 Carbon offers better screen options, it's a little bit sturdier and offers a larger palm-rest. The typing experience is subjective, though, and I for one lean somewhat towards the ExpertBook. But they're close.

            Ok, thanks. Glad to see that the sharp front lip and pointy corners of the B9 is not a issue for the overall typing experience.
