Today, Asus announced a new 2-in-1 tablet designed for IT professionals, known as the ExpertBook B3 Detachable. It features a Snapdragon processor paired with Microsoft’s Windows 11 Pro operating system.

The tablet offers an eight-core Snapdragon 7c Gen2 processor, along with 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM and a storage capacity of just 128GB of eMMC memory. 

Extended battery life

This tablet features a Windows 11 operating system with an ARM processor, which promises to offer users a considerable amount of additional battery life when compared to x86 configurations.

This tablet is designed for business folk who need a small, portable device for jotting down quick notes and looking at spreadsheets and other documents.

If you’re looking for a portable computer to do professional video editing or heavy Photoshop work, you may have trouble taking advantage of the device’s hardware specs.

To make the Asus Transformer Book Trio (B3) a true 2-in-1 device, Asus paired it with its ExpertBoard keyboard, which magnetically connects to the tablet and functions similar to Microsoft’s Surface touch covers.

However, the tablet itself cannot keep the keyboard at a stable angle for comfortable typing. Asus, therefore, offers users a separate stand to serve as a kickstand for the tablet when it is not in laptop mode.

Aspect ratio

While the specs for the B3 aren’t available yet, Asus says it will feature a 16:10 display. Rather than the 16:9 aspect ratio of many current laptops, this widens the screen, giving you more space to work with.

Resolutions are still up in the air, but 1080p is assumed to be one of them.

The only ports on the device are a single USB-C port and a headphone jack on the right side.

The only I/O on the device appears to be a single USB-Type C connection and a single headphone/mic jack on the right side. On the left, you’ll find your power button, volume buttons, and so on.

The B3 creates a collaborative environment for group notetaking, thanks to a stylus that charges in the holder built into the top of the table.

Quick charge

The tablet charges the pen quickly, and you can use the pen for up to 45 minutes after just a 15-second charge.

Asus has also specified the ExpertBook B3 to meet the MIL-STD 810H U.S. The B3 is built to military standards, so you can count on it to stand up to hard use in the field.

The features include a USB-C port that can be opened and closed 15,000 times without breaking, and the ability to withstand 18 40G jolts while the device is powered on.
