Your Business, Reinforced

Business and organizational users demand greater reliability, so ASUSPRO B400 notebooks are strictly quality-tested to much higher industry standards that even exceed the demanding MIL-STD 810G military standard. They prove very durable in drop tests, hinge cycle tests, and panel pressure testing. They also ship with an anti-shock hard drive that includes a triple protection mechanism to ensure data is always safe.

ASUSPRO B400 ASUSPRO B400

Enhanced Drop Testing
More than double the drop height of standard notebooks

Stronger Hinge Test
Two times higher standards than mainstream notebooks



ASUSPRO B400 ASUSPRO B400

Enhanced Pressure Testing
Up to 20% higher endurance compared to normal notebooks

Spill-Resistant Keyboard
Occasional beverage accidents are no longer a problem


ASUSPRO B400
Durable-Reinforced LCD Carbon Construction

The ASUS B400's LCD cover employs durable reinforced carbon construction that is several times sturdier than conventional plastics. This gives the notebook 20% higher panel pressure resistance compared to standard notebooks, offering better damage protection while remaining light.

Your Business: More Secure and Manageable

ASUSPRO B400
Embedded TPM Security Chip: Valuable Data Protected on a Deep Hardware Level

Professionals can rest assured that their valuable data is protected with Trusted Platform Module security hardware integrated on the board to hold computer-generated encryption keys. Its hardware-based design helps repel attacks by hackers looking to capture passwords and keys to sensitive data. TPM allows notebooks to run applications more securely, and makes transactions and communications more trustworthy.

ASUSPRO B400
Improved Security with Fingerprint Scanning

Notebooks incorporating fingerprint scanning take data access authorization and protection to a higher level with a personal touch. RF electronic scanner imaging reads fingerprint patterns, using sensors that are less affected by skin surface conditions, including dry, worn, calloused, dirty or oily skin, which may impair the ability of other sensor technologies to accurately detect fingerprints.

1 out of 5 eggsAsus Service is Garbage

Pros: Laptop works well, once you remove the absurd amount of bloatware.

Cons: At the three month mark, got a blue screen of death message. Had been working fine prior. Just surfing internet when it happened. After getting cut off two separate times and having to plead my case to a supervisor, the only option is to send this in for a three week repair process. Which, for a small business owner, means I will be buying a new laptop today. Bet it won't, and never will again be, an Asus.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product. I apologize if your are experiencing stability issue with the system and getting a blue-screen-of-death. If the laptop was working properly before, please try running System Restore to revert the system to the last known good configuration. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3541508 on the subject line.

Regards,

Rodel

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: I'm a systems engineer by trade so I am very picky when it comes to equipment. This laptop is incredibly well made and the specs are very nice. I did not want a laptop with a touch screen and it coming with WIndows 7 Pro was a nice touch. I already upgraded it to 8GB's. Note there is 4GB's built into the board and only one slot. There's an extra PCIe slot for a ssd as well. I ordered a Samsung 840 EVO drive and waiting to get it to put it in. It doesn't come with to much bloatware but I still ended up just reformatting the drive and do a clean install of 7 anyway.

Cons: No back light keyboard and the screws on the back panel strip really easily so be careful.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent build, decent performance, upgradable

Pros: Excellent build quality
Empty msata mini pci-e slot for SSD
Quick processor
Light
Good touchpad and buttons
Can upgrade RAM from 4 to 12 Gb

Cons: No discrete graphics
Mediocre 5400 rpm hard drive (but there is empty msata slot for ssd)

Other Thoughts: A 32 GB msata (half sized) SSD is being shipped to me and I will use it to boot CentOS linux.

4 out of 5 eggsGood out of the Box, Great Upgraded

Pros: Good case, well built.
Fast and good for the price without unnecessary features like touch screen.
Upgradable RAM & Hard Drive.
Relatively light-weight for the size.
3 Year Warranty

Cons: Screen is awful. I would have regretted this purchase on this point alone but we use this laptop with a monitor or with a projector - no big loss here. If you don't care about a decent resolution or good brightness, this isn't a factor for you!

Lots of bloatware. As expected, these laptops come with mounds of bloatware, and add minutes to the boot time. Many items are intrusive with popups on start, persistent desktop items, etc.

Other Thoughts: I had to do a factory wipe due to a bad Windows update (probably my fault, lost power during the update)... and it was pretty easy, but it took a very long time.

Since this information is hard to find, you can perform the following modifications to this by only opening the case (no advanced tools needed):

1 - swap out hard drive. appears to only support 7MM (instead of standard 9.5mm) drives, but theres a lot of cushioning that could possibly be compressed or partly removed.
2 - Add up to 8GB additional SODIMM RAM. You can't remove nor do you have access to the included 4 GB.
3 - Add a mini (half-size) PCI-E mSATA SSD. These are very hard to find at standard retailers, here is an example on NewEgg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1K611E2004

5 out of 5 eggsB400A

Pros: This laptop is everything I needed apart from my gaming tower. It can handle most tasks with ease, even without the i5 and upgraded RAM.

Cons: No SSD (can be installed though). Intel bloatware, which is very common nowadays. Screen isn't the greatest

Other Thoughts: Overall, great for mobile computing
