by birtanpublished on October 3, 2020

Hi guys this is ranjit and in this video we'll be doing the review for this asus expert book a laptop and this is supposed to be the world's lightest business laptop and guys this is a new series that is being launched by asus known as the expert series uh this is just one of the products that asus is going to launch in india it's going to be officially launched on 21st of september uh luckily i got this unit about a week ago so i have been actually using it this is their premium light laptop but i've heard that even some mid-range

What do you say laptops and even desktops will be launched so it'll be interesting to see but let's have a closer look at this laptop and i feel this is a product for professionals who want to really light a laptop but want everything in that and to be a frank guys i don't know the pricing as of now because it's going to be launched in india around 21st of september then we'll know so i'll leave the links but i was checking uh what do you say us

Pricing specific this is the highest end variant core i7 with one terabyte ssd and everything 16 gigabytes this is priced at about 1700 us dollars but let's see how do they price it in india but let's first have a look at this laptop so guys uh this is the laptop and first thing i want to show you is the what is the physical size uh this is my macbook air 13 inch do note this as a 13 inch screen and if i place it over it i'm just going to keep it

As you can see this is actually not that tall so actually it feeds a lot more compact i'll just keep this to the side and again this is also pretty light uh because of the magnesium lithium alloy and this is having uh actually the larger battery size then also this is 995 grams hence they call it the lightest business laptop and again as you can see you can open it up with a single uh what do you say lift it like this and if you notice it also has windows hello authentication

Over here and let me show you again if you just open it up i have cameras and it locks but again uh it also has a fingerprint scanner so again if you're wearing a mask or something uh you can use the fingerprint scanner also and i like the screen that's a 14 inch screen that we are getting on this uh but before i talk about the screen and notice how narrow the bezels are and stuff and we also have a privacy shutter this i like uh you can actually shut off

The camera if you want using the slider but this is the laptop and if you move towards this side the main ports are over here and if you see this is a micro port uh this is actually an adapter you get a ethernet adapter in the box so you can attach it and if you have a wired ethernet connection in some of the business use case scenarios and companies they have that so you can use it we do have a full-size hdmi port and two thunderbolt ports actually you charge it

Via this uh this is a supplied charger and this is a usb type-c charger that you're getting so you use usb type-c to charge it and this can charge your what do you say uh even smartphones and stuff i tested it's actually power delivery charger so i'll just keep this to this side and back again nothing much that we have and on this side we have a usb type a uh port in this usb type c and then you have a combo for your headphone

Microphone and all this thing and these are some of the leds that they'll glow when you're charging and if you notice this this is also actually a leg when you're charging this one it glows for in red color and also this has alexa so if you're going to use it this works so that's what it is regarding the physical overview and again i have to stress it is actually very very uh light and the thing is that in many of the light laptops the thing is that the battery capacity is generally on the lower side

Generally lower than 40 or around the 50 watt hour this one has a fairly big battery that's a 66 watt hour battery and i'll talk about the battery life later on because i was getting some terrific real world results and if you see this and this these are two open vents here this is for the speakers and let me just again open it up and give you an idea as you can see it opens unlocks and if you notice it lifts the laptop slightly uh so again it gives you enough

Ventilation now talking about the keyboard i actually am liking the keyboard it also has that bike lighting you can adjust it three levels are there and the key travel is surprisingly good on this one it was very very comfortable to type and i enjoyed actually typing on this one so the keyboard layout i like it and the key travel is also good uh another thing is that if you notice the trackpad size is significantly big on this one and yes it works well uh for example let

Me show you let me scroll uh this and all this thing there are specific gestures and all this work this is a glass track pad that we have let me minimize this but the thing is that we also have a button over here and if you press this this converts like this and and still while using this let's say you have the calculator up let me just open it for example let's say 25 into 25 and equal to 625 so you can use this and even though when you have this activated you can use the

Mois mouse mounter and again you just press this to switch it off so i like this functionality uh again it might be useful for people who are working a lot on what you say excel and other stuff and again moving to the specs let me just show you this one what we have i go to my pc let me just go over here my my pc this pc if i go over here again as this is for business centric users uh windows professional windows 10

Professional is actually pre-installed on this one and this specific variant that we have is the core i7 as i've told you we also get it with the core i5 and come this one is having 16 gigabytes of ram and one terabyte of ssd again you will have slightly different configurations available also in india with the core i5 so this is what it is and let's talk about the cpu uh this has the core i7 10th generation uh what do you say cpu and uh let the

Cpu id load so guys as you can see this is the intel core i7 10 510u series cpu it's a 15 watt tdp uh that you are getting on this one and again the main board is obviously made by uh asus memory uh 16 gb ddr dual channel again memory is not expandable but i feel 16 gigabytes is more than enough and until what do you say graphic card for example uh you can go to this page to get an idea about the

Cpu that is used on this uh this is the core i7 uh variant uh that we are having uh so let me just minimize this and i would say uh they have done a great job in terms of optimization with the cpu uh because what i've noticed is that in my regular work when i was doing the laptop never felt hot or even that the fan was audible uh yes only when i was running some benchmarks and stuff then only i noticed the fan noise a little bit but overall i would say i did not have

Any issues regarding when i was running benchmarks in fact i also ran a pc mark 10. guys using the pc mark 10 professional for benchmarking and it's been almost 25 minutes since it's running so this you could say is sort of the heavy load so let's see the temperature with this temperature gun that i have and the vents are over here so here as you can see it's i'm getting about 30 42 yes it was going around 42 40 to 42 degrees and here on the

Keyboard it's slightly warm but not hot at all as you can see about 36 it did touch 36 so you would say max of about 35 to 36 around the keyboard so that's actually good even with sustained real world loads this benchmark tries to do that we are getting that again i'll show you the benchmark scores also so the pc mark 10 uh benchmark was finished and i saved the score so to give you an idea the pc mark 10 this is the pc mark 10 professional and as you can see we got a score of 3435 on

This one and again i know this pc will be used mostly for business users so again how will it work for office applications i also ran a pc mark office application and here as you can see again we got a very high score so again if you are even working with very complex excel documents or word or powerpoint it will be great uh performance on this laptop so these are the scores that i got i also ran some other uh benchmarks for example i ran

Geekbench and here is the score that you're getting for single core one two five eight and for multicore three to uh three two so that's what we are getting and uh i also ran city bench r20 and this is for cpu and here we got a cpu score of 950. so overall i would say in day-to-day performance and everything i had no issues with the laptop uh it handles everyday tasks without any issues and i also ran this crystal disc man this is for the ssd and if you notice it has a very very

Fast ssd some of the fastest scores that i've seen on a ssd so again everything works very very fast on this that's the reason even if you boot up and you wake up from sleep almost instantly it is going to wake up like this as you can see and i've told you i like the fact that it also has that fingerprint so if you wear a mask or something you can use this uh so in general performance it was good now let's talk about the battery life on

This one which was a big highlight to me uh in marketing material they say you can get about 20 to 24 hours but again i don't believe in all those things so i ran my own benchmarks these are real world results guys after using this laptop for more than a week and if i open this battery report this is generated by windows itself uh so if you go down as you can see in real world i'm averaging about 12 hours to about 11 hours on this laptop which is amazing this is the best that i

Have seen uh in earlier what do you say thin and light laptops i have i used to get about eight to eight and a half hours but this 11 to 12 hours that is the real world that you can get these code these are not benchmark synthetic benchmark results guys this is in real world usage that i'm getting so battery life is something that really amazed me on this laptop and overall as i've told you the performance is also very very good on this laptop uh it

Handles everything that you throw on it without any issues never had issues of wake up or anything on this and in fact this product feels premium uh it doesn't feel cheap or anything it doesn't feel that the materials used are cheap or anything so it feels actually really good and asus also claims that i got the reviews guide this is actually military grade 810g so again i should be able to handle all the stress that you should use in your daily uh usage so guys that was the laptop and i completely forgot guys

Uh this laptop does come with wi-fi six that's wi-fi ax and if you guys have been following me on twitter you know that recently i got a wi-fi six router in my home and i did test this laptop and yes it latches to wi-fi six connection and it's blazingly fast on wi-fi six of course it works with wi-fi in our office we have wi-fi also so again in general performance it was very good and i really enjoyed using this laptop again as you can see how

Light it is and again it does not compromise on the performance and the build quality is certainly very very good so i would say this is a laptop for people business professionals who are looking for a high-end laptop but it they want a very light laptop sturdy laptop and with excellent battery life i would say the battery life was the surprising point for me and real world usage guys not that synthetic benchmark or all that i was getting about 11 to 12 hours of

Usage with this laptop uh so again i am thoroughly impressed with this laptop so if you are looking for the premium what do you say windows laptop you can certainly have a look at this and let's see how asus india prices this laptop in india anyways guys that's it for now thanks for watching this is ranjit and i hope to see you in my next video take care guys
