Asus ExpertBook B3 Flip is designed for hybrid work and learning

The Asus ExpertBook B3 Flip is designed to embrace the new normal, enabling hybrid working and learning. It’s the perfect companion for teachers, students, and business users with a rugged, versatile design.

Inspired by architecture

Being a clamshell laptop with full 360 degree support, the design team at Asus incorporated architectural elements into the design of the ExpertBook B3 Flip. The distinctive edges of its corners add both style and elegance, a refreshing change in appearance from the boring and plain look of a typical business laptop.

For the laptop’s Star Black finish, Asus designers took inspiration from the universe and the stars of the night sky to create a color that exudes both mystery and wisdom. The finish is iridescent, with hints of red and green appearing depending on how the light hits the surface of the machine. To imitate the stars, small shiny particles are embedded in the finish.

To cope with daily intensive use, the cover and the base panel of the ExpertBook B3 Flip are made of aluminum alloy. This allows the machine to achieve lighter weight and greater durability, alongside MIL-STD 810H military-grade protection. The laptop’s I/O connectors are reinforced, the keyboard uses additional structural support including a water-resistant layer to deal with liquid spills, and the hinge is reinforced with thicker steel brackets than the average and larger screws. The latter also means the laptop can be flipped into any position with the hinge tested for over 30,000 open/close cycles.

TUV Rheinland certified display

The ExpertBook B3 Flip features a 14-inch 16:9 FHD touchscreen display that supports 1920 x 1080 resolution and offers up to 100% sRGB color. It supports low blue light emissions and flicker-free visuals ensuring greater care for your eyes. There’s also an optional garage stylus attachment that supports 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and automatically recharges when stowed, keeping it ready for use. You can use the aluminum alloy stylus to take notes or to annotate, giving you another dimension to interact with your work.

Given our remote work environments, cameras play a crucial role in today’s laptops. The ExpertBook Flip B3 has two cameras, one is standard with a privacy shield and the other is an optional special world-facing camera that gives you a whole new way to explore your creativity. The latter is a 13MP sensor above the keyboard for capturing photos and videos when the laptop is in tablet or tent mode. With either camera, you’ll also find Asus’ 3D Noise Reduction (3DNR) technology which eliminates up to 23% of the random noise that naturally plagues any camera, especially in low light conditions.

Unparalleled typing experience

Despite its compact size, the ExpertBook B3 Flip has a standard size keyboard. Its keys have a pitch of 19.05 mm, which is the same as that of a desktop computer keyboard, which improves comfort and accuracy of typing. In addition to its spill-resistant design, the keyboard is backlit for easier typing in dark environments.

For those who want to enter numbers, the ExpertBook B3 Flip is available with an optional NumberPad 2.0. The LED-lit numeric keypad integrated into the touchpad makes up for the lack of a physical numeric keypad. With a simple touch of the touchpad, this can be activated at two brightness levels according to convenience. You can also swipe the top left icon in any direction on the NumberPad 2.0 to quickly activate the Calculator app on the main screen. Since the machine’s touchpad is larger than that of an average laptop, this feature works very well, especially with the touchpad’s glass covering and multi-touch and multi-touch input support. -gestures.

Powerful internal components

Housed in its slim body profile, the ExpertBook B3 Flip has a powerful set of components. First, 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics sit at the heart of the machine, delivering better computing performance and mobility. The new chipsets revolutionize modern creative workflows with Intel Deep Learning Boost AI acceleration and AV1 multimedia encoding and decoding. The chip’s benefits also extend to connectivity, with high-speed WiFi 6 technology and Thunderbolt 4 support for connecting peripherals.

Coupled with the chip, up to 12GB of high-speed RAM and up to 256GB of PCIe 3.0×4 M.2 SSD storage. Internally, Asus has also used metal covers for the laptop’s SSD, CPU, and memory for long-term performance stability. To ensure power on the go, there’s a 50-watt-hour battery on the ExpertBook B3 Flip that delivers 9 hours of battery life on a single charge. With fast charging, the laptop can go from 1 to 60 percent in just under 36 minutes.
