Asus tries a new angle on the old-school laptop hinge

The Asus Pro B9440U is a sleek, featherweight business laptop with a competitively low price.

Starting at $1,000 (converted, that's about £790 and AU$1,320), the stylish Windows 10 Pro notebook successfully squeezes a damn-near bezel-less 14-inch screen into a 13-inch chassis. It also has the latest Intel seventh-generation Core i-series processors, a fingerprint reader and a long-lasting battery.

Comparable laptops for business use usually cost a bit more, like the $1,700 Apple MacBook Pro and the $1,579 HP EliteBook x360, but they offer high-end features like 4K screens and a multitude of ports. Yet the Asus's low price comes at the sacrifice of a few features: there's no webcam and it only has two USB-C ports.
