ASUS Pro B9440 Is The World's Lightest 14-inch Business Laptop

ASUS has just announced a new Windows 10 laptop called Pro B9440, a strange name for the world's lightest business laptop. It has a 14-inch display inside the case of a 13-inch notebook made out of lightweight magnesium alloy that weighs only 1.04 kg. Despite its lightweight design, the notebook has passed MIL-STD 810G standard for durability.

ASUS Pro B9440 packs a 14-inch Full HD display, Intel's latest Kaby Lake processor, up to 16 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB SSD storage. Users can add Intel vPro support or Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for secure hardware-based data encryption as well as an ASUS SimPro Dock USB-C docking station for dual DisplayPort interfaces, USB-C and Type-A USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports, VGA, HDMI, LAN, and an SD Card reader.

The laptop is scheduled to ship this May for $999.
