ASUS Business, a global technology leader renowned for continuously reimagining today’s businesses, is proud to announce the newest update to the 2023 ExpertBook Series line-up: the epitome of sustainable excellence, ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED (B9403), powered by the latest 13th Generation Intel® Core™ processors and with a multitude of enterprise-grade security features. Crafted from premium magnesium-lithium alloy, the ExpertBook B9 OLED only weighs a featherlight of 990g for exceptional portability that’s always ready for elite business executives.
With an environmentally friendly design, brilliant 16:10 OLED display, AI-powered camera, and noise cancelation for modern work experiences, the latest Intel® Core™ 13th Generation processor, with support for an optional Intel® Core™ vPro® configuration and a multitude of enterprise-grade security features, ExpertBook B9 OLED is the perfect partner for executives and business travelers. It ups both green credentials and professionalism and sets a new benchmark for elite business laptops. ExpertBook B9 OLED is also backed by the imminent support of ASUS Carbon Partner Services. This provides end-to-end delivery, assured quality, flexible, and precise-carbon offset options that drive real, positive impact.

This updated and comprehensive portfolio reflects our unique ability to Develop Custom Solutions for Any Business. At ASUS Business, customers’ success is the top priority, which is why ASUS Business is continuously developing new business solutions to reach incredible heights to grow the commercial space.
ExpertBook B9 OLED (B9403): The world’s lightest 14-inch OLED business laptop
ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED has been engineered to upgrade expectations of both what a modern business laptop should be and what it can achieve. Crafted from premium magnesium-lithium alloy, the lightest metal alloy on the planet, it delivers premium quality and design while remaining one of the lightest 14-inch business laptops in the world, at just 990g — lighter even than many 13-inch laptops on the market.
Despite its incredible lightness, ExpertBook B9 OLED is remarkably robust. It endures multiple tests that adhere to the exacting US military-grade MIL-STD-810H standard and is subjected to a barrage of rigorous in-house ASUS durability tests.
ExpertBook B9 OLED is also a verified Intel® Evo™ laptop, with up to 13th Generation Intel Core i7 with support for Intel® Core™ vPro® processors and 64 GB of LPDDR5x memory, assuring exceptional performance, efficiency, and connectivity, and delivers up to 11 hours use on a single charge — enabling busy executives to power through a full workday and beyond.
The 16:10 OLED display is also stunning, providing vivid color and low blue-light emissions for enhanced eye care, plus a 90% screen-to-body ratio for immersive visual experiences and enhanced productivity. For better professional video conferencing, ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED features AI-powered two-way noise-canceling technology and an ASUS AiSense webcam for crystal-clear communication and maximized visual clarity. The touchpad has also increased in size, with a surface area that is 26.8% larger — providing extra room for navigation that’s more comfortable.
Embracing the intuitive power of Windows 11 Pro, ExpertBook B9 OLED is also packed with active technologies and passive smarts to ensure business elites can get more done with minimum distractions or interruptions. Compared with previous generations, the laptop’s dual-fan, smart-cooling system reduces operating temperatures by up to 27%, lowers noise by 32%, and decreases power consumption. The touchpad also has a 26.8% increased surface area — providing extra room for more comfortable navigation.
Its ultrathin profile is no barrier to connectivity. It is loaded with I/O ports, including a pair of cutting-edge Thunderbolt™ 4 Type-C ports, with USB Power Delivery 3.0 support, a traditional USB 3.2 Type-A port, an HDMI 2.1 port, and lastly, a 3.5mm combo jack — ensures that it can interface with a wide variety of both modern and legacy devices.
Sustainable across the product lifecycle
ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED was designed with sustainability at the forefront. The manufacturing process employs a patented technique called Thixomolding to bestow the dual benefits of increased rigidity and improved energy efficiency, with material waste reduced by 29% and production time shortened by up to 75%. The packaging also uses paper that has been awarded with FSC™ MIX certification, signifying that it is made with a mixture of materials from FSC-certified forests and recycled materials. Aspects of the packaging are also immediately reusable and useful, with the accessory box able to transform into a laptop stand for instant elevation with an ecological edge.
With the effort to embrace environmentally-friendly materials and increase energy efficiency, along with multiple other factors, ExpertBook B9 OLED is expected to be EPEAT Gold verified — and it exceeds ENERGY STAR® standards, with energy consumption that’s up to 44% lower than certification requirements. It is also supported by the all-new ASUS Carbon Partner Services program, which offers flexible options to offset carbon footprint throughout the product lifecycle with high-quality nature-based carbon credits verified by reputable organizations.
Enterprise-grade security to keep confidential data safe
ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED is fit for the realities of the modern business world and packed with robust, multi-layered security features to ensure that confidential and private data does not leak out.
These include support for the Intel™ vPro® platform for superior business protection. By enabling remotely managed automated troubleshooting and advanced virtualization, lowering administration costs, and ensuring that data is kept secure, Intel™ vPro® offers a framework that lessens the workload of an organization’s IT department to improve overall operational efficiency.ExpertBook B9 OLED also boasts the best biometric protection, with an integrated fingerprint sensor and an infrared (IR) camera powered by ASUS Adaptive Lock technology for face login. There’s also hardware-level protection against malware and sophisticated cyberattacks, empowered by the optional TPM 2.0 chip. On the other hand, a physical webcam shield ensures that instant privacy is only a quick flick away. The ASUS ExpertBook B9 OLED also boasts additional security for the elite executives on the go, offering an NFC reader integrated into the NumberPad 2.0, meaning logging in to ExpertBook B9 can be as simple, swift, and secure as the swipe of an authorized card.
