Summary: While certainly not a top-of-the-line series, the Asus B23E business laptop is a solid choice. It features a powerful processor and good connectivity options, although both of these areas could see some improvement. The abysmal four-hour battery life is unfortunate, and we would have liked to see it come with a few more connectivity options. However, looking past these flaws, you'll be able to get your work done easily on the go with the Asus B23E.
Pros: The Asus B23E houses a powerful processor and graphics card.
Cons: The battery life on this device is extremely weak.
Summary: The ASUS B23E-XH71 has a lot of what business users are looking for, including a sturdy design and powerful security features. This ultraportable is also plenty fast, and it features one of the better keyboards we've used on an ASUS notebook. The ability to switch to a clean desktop with the touch of a button when giving a presentation is also a nice touch. Too bad the B23E runs out of gas too fast.
Pros: Durable and lightweight design, Fingerprint reader and other security tools included, Fast Core i7 processor, Keyboard provides solid feedback
Cons: Short battery life, Weak speaker, Keyboard not backlit, Fingerprint reader wouldn't work when resuming from sleep
