The 14-inch Asus ExpertBook B9450 is one of my favorites for lap work and Zooming. It's exceptionally light at 2.2 pounds (995 grams) thanks to magnesium-lithium alloy. Asus' NumberPad 2.0 is a virtual numeric keypad that comes up on the touchpad.

The Asus ExpertBook B9450 has the longest laptop battery life we've ever tested. Other standout additions include an illuminated number pad integrated into the touchpad. You don't get the same snappiness offered on a ThinkPad keyboard, but there is still a decent clickiness to the ExpertBook's keys.
