The Asus Pro B8430UA-FA0481E ultraportable laptop is designed for small and medium businesses. It offers affordable reliability, with a light and slim design that starts at 1.7kg (with battery). They are reinforced and reliability-proven by much higher standard testing than mainstream notebooks. This includes drop tests, hinge cycle tests and panel pressure tests. Experience higher productivity gains from the latest Intel® Core™ processors. Additional security measures include TPM and fingerprint scanner.
Designed for Professionals
– Corporate non-IT staff who need essential features and stable operation for productivity
– Government or education professionals requiring security and data protection
– Small businesses with controlled budgets that demand durable high-end performance
Ultraportable, subtle & stylish
Starting from 1.7kg, the P5430U uses a one-piece build, creating a subtle and completely consistent look. The design extends to the underside and removes unneeded clutter with a hairline stylish brushed finish.
True-comfort and spill-proof keyboard for increased productivity
Business places great importance on keyboards, as they are vital for professional communications. That’s why ASUS engineers have fine-tuned the P5430U’s keyboard, providing better click ratios and 2.3mm travel distance to maintain comfort during long hours of work. The keyboard is also spill-proof too which means it can withstand any accidental beverage spillage.
Bigger Multi-Gesture Touchpad
Easier to use and more precise input with scroll, rotate, and zoom capabilities. This intuitive input option effectively replaces the mouse while its multi-touch input allows effortless accuracy, including two-finger web page scroll, image zoom/rotate and three finger tapping to mimic a right-click. Workflow is therefore streamlined with gesture control, especially for multi-step tasks such as presentations and research projects.
Anti-glare display for comfortable viewing
Matte screen materials prevent unwanted reflections to reduce eye fatigue. They also stop unsightly fingerprint smudges for more attractive presentations. To prolong productivity, ergonomic, textured, palm rest areas provide a pleasant and solid feel so you can keep working without slowing down.
Business and organizational users demand higher standards and greater reliability, that’s why ASUSPRO P series notebooks are strictly quality-tested to much higher industry standards then mainstream notebooks. The tests have proven the ASUSPRO P series notebooks as highly durable in drop tests, hinge cycle tests and panel pressure testing.
– Enhanced drop testing
More than double the drop height of standard notebooks
– Enhanced pressure testing
Up to 20% higher endurance compared to normal notebooks
– Stronger hinge testing
20,000 more cycles than standard notebook testing
– Spill-resistant keyboard
Occasional liquid spillages are no longer a problem
Improved privacy 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.
Trusted Platform Module for Robust, Hardware-Based Security
Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is a hardware chip integrated on the motherboard that securely encrypts data, reducing the risks posed by hackers looking to capture password and encryption keys to sensitive data. TPM adds an additional layer of security and allows notebooks to run applications more securely, making transactions and communications more trustworthy. When used in conjunction with an optional security software package, it provides greatly improved overall system security, file protection capabilities, and email/privacy safeguards. TPM enables stronger security than that delivered by the BIOS, operating system, or any non-TPM application.
High Productivity and Steamed Management
Intelligent Manageability: ASUSPRO Business Center for PC management Is a new computing platform in one simple package comprising hardware, software and firmware that provides unique security as well as productivity capabilities. It is designed to provide simplified management and maintenance to meet the needs of small businesses without a managed IT environment so they can focus more on their business.
Wake-on-LAN(WOL) Allows PCs to be turned on by a Simple Network Message
ASUSPRO B series have a built-in hardware module on the motherboard that supports Wake-on-LAN (WOL). This allows them to be powered on or woken from sleep mode by a network message via LAN or WAN connections. This feature is invaluable for remote PC maintenance and support.
