Asus is present for some time in the laptop business segment and at the beginning of the year has launched an awesome new ultra-portable. For those not familiar with Asus products, the B Series notebook comes with better and more powerful specifications than those provided by ordinary laptops. We’re talking about more resistant cases, keyboards which lets water to go through, better protection for hard drive and a high level of data security. Asus B23 is an ultra-portable of 12.5″ that has all the above requirements.
In the magnesium alloy case can be found an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processor with standard voltage, up to 8 GB RAM and a 750GB HDD. The dedicated video card is missing but the screen resolution of 1366×768 has a mat filter. Asus B23 weighs 1.55 kg with a battery of three cells. This one is bearing the name of Boston Sonata. Although it has only 4400 mAh, can be loaded at 40% capacity in just 10 minutes and reach 80% capacity in 30 minutes. In addition, the manufacturer boasts that the Sonata battery life is three times higher than a standard Li-ion battery.
As for B23, a model with Core i7 processor, 4 GB HDD and 500 GB appeared on Amazon.com at a price less than $ 1,000. A pretty nice price in our opinion.
