A press release notes that the new line includes configurable ExpertBook Laptops, ExpertCenter Desktops, MiniPCs, Workstations and AiO (all-in-one) models fit for both hybrid and remote work opportunities. Most notably, the new Expert Series introduces the ExpertBook B9 (B9450CBA), a 14-inch business laptop; and the ExpertBook B7 Flip (B7402FBA), a 14-inch 5G flip laptop.

“The workplace has changed, and it’s up to business owners, executives, educators, retailers and other workers to decide its future,” said Steve Chang, ASUS Computer International President, in a news release. “These users are forging the new future of work, and they need tools that work invisibly, reliably and seamlessly day after day.

Now, with the Expert Series portfolio, we are setting a new standard for the commercial PC market to enable businesses to define their new work style—whatever that might be—with elite performance, premium craftsmanship, durability and enterprise-grade tools.”

A press release notes a number of features designed to optimize performance. The technology offers increased durability and reliability through amenities like sturdy craftsmanship, reinforced construction and use of sustainable materials. The computers meet MIL-STD 810H U.S. military standards to endure hours and days of consistent use. Configurable laptops, desktops and workstations offer flexibility and agility. And the technology is simple to manage via Intel vPro Enterprise and Essentials options, as well as the MyASUS app.
