The case structure allows the screen to tilt 180 degrees. The screen itself is also touch-sensitive and can act as a numeric keypad when operated in the appropriate mode.

The laptop has a 66Wh battery, which allows it to run for up to 16 hours without recharging. It also has a webcam with a protective cover, Harman/Kardon speakers, as well as speakers with noise-canceling technology. The laptop also has USB Type-A, Thunderbolt, HDMI, RJ45 (micro-HDMI) and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The price of the Asus ExpertBook B9 will start at $1,800. The novelty is already available for sale on the U.S. market.

In September the company introduced the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED (UX9702), which became the world's first notebook with a folding screen. The resolution of its 17.3-inch screen is 2560x1920 pixels, with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a disclosure angle of up to 180 degrees.
