The ASUS Pro B9440 is a very light, thin, fast and portable Ultrabook aimed towards business professionals. It's made out of magnesium alloy and very durable. Perfect for the person who travels. Watch for my hands-on review and first impressions!

Doing business by camera, seriously people ? Many people cover their cameras today or disable in bios. There are special sets for video conference on the market. For me missing camera its plus not deal breaker....
The lack of "standard" USB ports would make this impractical for my users. I'd rather have an LG Gram or Samsung 9. Hopefully Asus can bring larger light laptops next year with more ports. Lastly the lack of camera makes it worthless for our environment. I don't think I'd call this a business laptop. Lastly without an HDMI out this isn't very good for business meetings when they might want to do presentations.
Personally I wouldn't mind using something like this (if only my mouse was bluetooth), then again I never actually use the webcam on my ultrabook anyway. However having a 'business' laptop without a webcam, usb type A and more common forms of display output... really? I like the product just don't go the apple route calling things pro that really arent...
Hi Matt, I would really like to see a full review of this model (highest configuration 16gb ram, 512 SSD if possible) and also comparing it with the LG Gram of the exact same configuration. At the moment there are only a few video reviews on YT, does that mean this model is a total miss because of a missing webcam or there is not enough interest? Thanks
Hey Matthew......that is a great looking laptop.....yes would love a full review and detail on specs..... perhaps compare with carbon video kinda theme video..... you know what I mean......it seems everyone and everything is USB type C now.......may be pick type C gadgets from online gadgets shopping websites and do a review video on that.....love your work man.....oh almost forgot.....check out the LG TVs here in Vegas..... they are awesome.......later.....
Ok, as a business person here, we are looking at a light, easily portable good looking laptop. But a business laptop with NO front facing camera for video conferencing? Seriously? What were they thinking? This is simply not suitable for many businesses, large, medium or small. Nice video by the way!! Thumbs up!
I do believe a laptop without camera is still desirable, for a niche market. Manufacturers produce laptops with cam and without cam, people will buy them. more people want, they will produce more, fewer people want, they will produce less. we dont need to worry about it for the manufacturers. For the security reasons? hmmm. I dont know. anything could cause a security issue.
+Brian M you think it's stupid because you can't think outside of your own work habits. Cameras have become a huge security liability. Some hospitals don't allow laptops with integrated webcams because of these security problems.
So why don't you use your head and think about other possibilities as to why a company would make such a decision before you call others "not too bright". Because I've just listed one MAJOR "point in having to travel around with both a computer and a (separate) camera."
ATS_ . For video conference a FHD cinema experience is not needed, just enough to see the other participants. There's no point in having to travel around with both a computer and a camera. It's both counterintuitive and you obviously are not too bright so possibly this machine would be suitable for you. 😉
He asked us viewers to let him know, if we want a full review, after it releases, which is why i said that a full review would be good. Watch the video before replying unnecessarily to comments. Now you tell me who looks like a genius!!!!
