Earlier this summer, ASUS brought the ExpertBook B9 business laptop to the Vietnamese market, targeting business people who needed a lightweight and luxurious device. But the price barrier of nearly 38 million dong has made many people concerned, especially in the recent difficult economic time.
After 3 months, ASUS Vietnam continued to introduce another ExpertBook, this time still inherited some features from its seniors but in return for a more reasonable price.
Looking at the A side, we can see that the P2 looks similar to the previous B9 with a slightly greenish matte black tone, simply with the ASUS logo engraved in the center.
ASUS continues to embrace the minimalist style of its business line and it seems that it understands customers need to focus on productivity rather than making a flashy impression on the exterior.
The first feature that can be seen in this laptop is the 180-degree flip screen, which is easy for customers or colleagues to see to discuss work together. According to ASUS, the chassis uses an aluminum alloy back and reinforced with an internal steel frame, ExpertBook P2 also meets MIL-STD 810G military durability standards to ensure stable operation against accidental impacts. or harsh environment.
The device uses a 14-inch FHD screen with enough brightness and viewing angle. The screen border is neatly on the sides, but the top and bottom are still quite thick, making the experience not really eye-catching. Although knowing that this is not a pure entertainment laptop, if it is “trimmed” further, it will definitely be more attractive.
This laptop is focused a lot on security issues, in which the webcam is equipped with a side door to close when not in use, creating a sense of peace of mind.
The machine is also equipped with the ability to encrypt the hard drive to protect user data more safely. All in the ASUS Business Manager software.
New on this laptop that B9 did not previously have is the SensePoint pointer placed in the middle of the keyboard area, making manipulation quicker and easier.
Chiclet keyboard with deep key travel, about 1.5mm, creates a feeling of typing quite like. Below the keyboard, there is also a backlight system so users can use it in all different conditions of the day.
Fingerprint security is located right on the touchpad. Talking more about the Touchpad, ExpertBook P2 does not have a virtual NumPad integrated above and according to the writer, this omission is sometimes an advantage. Basically, when inputting with virtual NumPad does not feel as confident as in physical keys, not to mention that whenever the palm touches the area of the table, it makes NumPad activate very annoying. So, it makes perfect sense to eliminate it.
The machine still retains the thinness, of course not equal to the B9, but only about less than 2cm thick and weighs about 1.5kg. Surprisingly, ASUS is still equipped with VGA port at this time of 2020, in addition to the memory card reader slot is MicroSD instead of SD.
The machine has a total of 3 USB-A ports, 1 USB-C 3.2 (Gen2) port and is capable of recharging from this end.
4 rubber soles are made quite high, helping to dissipate heat better.
ExpertBook P2 has a basic configuration from 10 generation Core i5, 8GB DDR4 RAM (2 slots and supports up to 32GB), Intel UHD Graphics, 256GB PCIe Gen3 x4 SSD M.2 hard drive and price about 16 million dong. With the highest configuration i7-10510U with 512GB hard drive, users will have to spend about 8 million more. In terms of battery life, ASUS said with 48Wh battery, this laptop can last 13 hours continuously, helping users’ work without interruption throughout the day.
There’s also a wireless mouse under the box, but the colors look a bit out of tone.
