Asus AsusPro B9440UA (Core i7, 16 GB) Laptop Review Update

 

The lightest 14-inch laptop in the world - part 2. We performed our benchmarks on the i7 version called GV0101T of the compact B9440UA that only has a few interfaces. Are the 300 Euros extra a good investment? It depends if the buyer finds 256 GB more...

solid and stylish casing ; very compact, slim and light ; narrow bezel ; port replicator and cover included ; TPM + fingerprint scanner ; very good input devices ; excellent contrast ratio ; quiet and cool in all load scenarios ; frugal and energy...

basic connectivity ; no webcam ; Wi-Fi performance not ideal ; low color space coverage ; poor color accuracy ex-factory ; below average SATA 3 SSD ; massive throttling in the stress test

The GV0101T model with an i7, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD is roughly 300 Euros (~$343) more expensive than the GV0100T with 8 GB of working memory and a 256 GB SSD. However, apart from the larger storage device, it hardly offers an added value....

Asus AsusPro B9440UA (Core i5, 8 GB) Laptop Review

 

The world's most lightweight 14-inch notebook. That is at least according to Asus, since the company advertises their latest 1.05 kg (2.31 lbs) heavy and 15 mm (0.59 inches) USB-C only office notebook as such. Our extensive review is going to reveal...

rigid and good-looking case ; very compact, thin, and lightweight ; thin bezels ; port replicator and protective case included ; TPM + fingerprint reader ; very good input devices ; excellent contrast ratio ; quiet and cool in all load scenarios ;...

rudimentary port layout ; no webcam ; subpar Wi-Fi performance ; color accuracy rather poor out of the box ; subpar SATA 3 SSD ; massive throttling during our stress test

Asus took a chance by sacrificing all ports that can normally be found on laptops, and quite a few users will be put off by the fact that the device is limited to two USB-C ports. However, it would have been all but impossible to achieve 15 mm...

Asus AsusPro B9440UA review

 

An Ultrabook that goes a bit too far in its quest to slim down

Smart overall design ; MIL-STD 810G graded ; 3-year international warranty ; Long battery life

Frustrating hinge ; Lack of ports ; No webcam

The AsusPro B9440UA is a fantastic piece of technology in many ways, but we’re not big fans of the hinge – plus the lack of ports and absence of a webcam are, in our opinion, a step too far in the battle between aesthetics and functionality.

Asus Pro B9440UA review: A tough, lightweight 14-inch business laptop, but where's the webcam?

 

The Asus Pro B9440UA tries to hit a sweet spot between price, functionality and portability that will appeal to mobile professionals. There's a real sleekness to the design, with Asus highlighting the provision of a full-HD 14-inch screen in a 13-inch...

Light, portable and robust ; Large screen for the chassis size ; Good speakers ; Good battery life

No webcam or touchscreen ; Poorly located power button ; Disappointing screen resolution ; Few on-board ports and slots

Breve Análise do Portátil Asus AsusPro B9440UA (Core i5, 8 GB)

 

O portátil de 14 polegadas mais leve do mundo. Isso é pelo menos de acordo com a Asus, dado que a empresa anuncia o seu portátil de escritório mais recente de apenas 1,05 kg (2,31 lbs) e 15 mm (0,59 polegadas) apenas com USB-C, como tal. Nossa extensa...

Carcaça rígida e com bom visual ; Muito compacto, fino, e leve ; Marcos finos ; Replicador de portas e carcaça protetora incluída ; TPM + leitor de digitais ; Muito bons dispositivos de entrada ; Excelente razão de contraste ; Silencioso e frio em...

Layout das portas rudimentar ; Sem webcam ; Desempenho inferior do Wi-Fi ; Precisão das cores bastante pobre, de fábrica ; SSD SATA 3 inferior ; Afogamento massivo durante o nosso teste de estresse

A Asus se arriscou sacrificando todas as portas que normalmente podem ser encontradas em portáteis, e alguns usuários serão deixados de lado pelo fato de que o dispositivo está limitado a duas portas USB-C. No entanto, teria sido quase impossível...

El portátil de 14 pulgadas más ligero del mundo - segunda parte. Probamos la versión i7 del B9440A, denominada GV0101T. ¿Son una buena inversión los 300 euros extra? Depende de si el comprador cree que 256 GB más de SSD valen 300 euros.

El modelo GV0101T con procesador i7, 16 GB de RAM y un SSD de 512 GB SSD cuesta 300 euros más que el GV0100T con 8 GB de memoria y un SSD de 256 GB. Sin embargo, aparte de la mayor capacidad de almacenamiento, apenas ofrece valor añadido. Si se suele...

Recensione breve del Portatile Asus AsusPro B9440UA (Core i5, 8 GB)

 

Il portatile da 14" più leggero del mondo. Questo almeno secondo Asus, che pubblicizza il suo ultimo portatile da ufficio USB-C da 1,05 kg (2.31 lbs) e 15 mm (0.59 inches) di spessore. La nostra recensione mostra se valga la pena accettare qualche...

layout delle porte rudimentale ; manca la webcam ; prestazioni Wi-Fi sotto la media ; precisione del colore scarsa ; SSD SATA 3 sotto la media ; throttling evidente durante il nostro stress test

Asus trae vantaggio dal sacrificio di tutte le porte che normalmente si trovano sui portatili, e pochi utenti saranno disincentivati dal fatto che sul dispositivo ci sono solo due porte USB-C. Tuttavia, sarebbe stato impossibile avere 15 mm di spessore...

Das leichteste 14-Zoll-Notebook der Welt - Teil 2. Wir jagen die i7-Variante namens GV0101T des ebenso kompakten wie anschlussarmen B9440UA durch unseren Benchmark-Parcours. Lohnen sich die Mehrkosten von 300 Euro? - Kommt eben drauf an, ob einem 256...

rudimentäre Anschlussausstattung ; keine Webcam ; suboptimale WLAN-Performance ; geringe Farbraumabdeckung ; schlechte Farbtreue ab Werk ; unterklassige SATA-3-SSD ; massives Throttling im Stresstest

Die Variante GV0101T mit i7, 16 GB RAM und 512-GB-SSD kostet rund 300 Euro mehr, bietet bis auf den größeren Massenspeicher aber kaum einen Mehrwert gegenüber dem i5-Modell GV0100T mit 8 GB Hauptspeicher und 256-GB-SSD. Wer häufiger exzessives...

Kort testrapport Asus AsusPro B9440UA (Core i5, 8 GB) Laptop

 

De lichtste 14-inch-notebook ter wereld. Dat is tenminste wat Asus beweert bij het promoten van zijn nieuwste office-notebook met een gewicht van 1,05 kg en hoogte van 15 mm. Ons testrapport brengt aan het licht of de compromissen die deze krachttoer...
