Hybrid working has highlighted the need for a capable machine, no matter what you call an office these days. Certain features have become a priority, such as good quality webcams and microphones, being lightweight and portable, good battery life, and having a SIM card slot.

The Asus ExpertBook B7 Flip ticks most of those boxes and then some. It is a two-in-one business laptop with a 360° screen that flips out, providing flexibility on how you want to work. Once opened fully, you can use it in tablet mode, with the option to switch to a dedicated tablet mode with larger icons. It felt a bit heavy with prolonged use in this mode. It also supports the Asus Pen stylus, available separately.

Our B7 Flip review unit came in a navy shade that feels business-like. It is a powerful machine packed into a 1.44kg compact exterior, which is what makes it attractive. You can pop it into a bag without the bulk. For its slim design, it manages to pack in every single port you would need in a business environment.

It has 2x Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, 2x USB-A ports, a mini Display Port, HDMI, micro HDMI, 3.5mm audio jack, smart card reader, a Kensington nano security slot, and a 5G-supported SIM slot. Security includes a fingerprint sensor and a camera that supports facial recognition.
