ASUS ExpertBook B1 (B1502) review – business features on the budget

ASUS – the brand known for its gaming and Zenbook laptops is relatively new in the business/enterprise notebook market. However, it has already proved that it can make decent machines even for serious people.

Today, we’re going to check one such device. It is called the ASUS ExpertBook B1 (B1502), and it comes with Intel’s 12th Gen processors. Thankfully (for ourselves and for you), we were able to snatch the B1502CBA variant, which features the more powerful roster of CPUs.

This will let us give you a better insight into the true performance and cooling capacity of the product. By the way, we find it amusing that a laptop in the year 2023 can still be found with a 768p TN display option. We’ll let that one slide, but ASUS has no more strikes on this one.

Thankfully, if you have the opportunity to get it on your market, target the version with the 1080p IPS panel. Beware of the 1080p TN impostor that might be lurking on the streets of Amazon.
