ExpertBook B7 Flip
The Asus ExpertBook B7 Flip is the top of the range in the series. Asus says this is the ultimate tool for mobile and flexible working. It does support Intel vPro that comes with a built-in smart card reader that can be used as a secondary ID check for enhanced identity security.
For battery life, you should expect up to 11 hours on a signal charge. ExpertBook B7 Flip has a magnesium-aluminum alloy design that is light and thin yet durable, with the ErgoLift hinge enabling it to flip by 360° so it can be used as a traditional laptop configuration, as a tablet, or anything in between. The hinge should last for more that 30,000 open/close cycles.
