MateBook X Pro
The only Huawei MateBook X Pro we’ve tested in the last two years, the current MateBook X Pro isn’t as fantastic as its predecessor from 2018, but it’s still a nice laptop. The MateBook X Pro offers a beautiful 13.9-inch 3:2 display, a great keyboard and touchpad experience, extended battery life, and a speedy SSD for €1.899 (approximately $2,265.91).
This matebook pro is around 40% quicker and more powerful than the previous model, and it comes with the Windows 10 Home Signature edition installed with no bloatware. One of the most intriguing features of this device is that it supports One-touch login, which allows users to log in to Windows Hello in less than 8 seconds. It sports a massive 16 GB RAM and a 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7 processor. The internal hard disc has a capacity of 500 GB.
The MateBook 13 is the lightest MateBook, weighing 2.91 pounds and measuring 11.3 x 8.3 x 0.6 inches. The MateBook X Pro, which weighs 2.93 pounds, isn’t far behind, and the MateBook D, which weighs 3.41 pounds, is half a pound more than the MateBook 13.
The MateBook 13 has the smallest footprint of the lot (94 square inches). MateBook X Pro (102 square inches), MateBook 14 (107 square inches), and MateBook D (111 square inches) all take up more space on your desk or in your purse.
If you’re used to doing things the old-fashioned way, you’ll have no trouble with this piece. It’s a 13-inch laptop with a resolution of 160 x 1440 pixels on the screen. With 8GB of RAM loaded, you can’t go wrong. It has a 1.6 rating and is an Intel UHD processor. This means that, while it doesn’t get hot quickly, it’s not a good choice for gaming or anything else that requires a lot of power.
The Huawei MateBook D starts at $621, which is more than $300 less than most of its competitors. While its AMD CPU can’t match the Intel-based MateBooks’ speeds, its good battery life score (9:16) exceeds the MateBook 13’s 6:15 and isn’t far behind the original MateBook X Pro’s score of 9:55.
Oh, and for people with a lot of legacy devices, the MateBook D has a wonderful assortment of connectors. Because there are two Type-A USB ports, you may use your current flash drive and HDMI cable without the need for a dock.
It has a Quad speaker cut-up-frequency that delivers woofers deep, resonant bass and tweeters clean treble for a crisp, immersive sound. It boasts a 3-D sound system with Dolby Atmos, which ensures that certain distortions are reduced, allowing you to focus on every detail from all angles.
