Huawei is slowly and gradually expanding its reach into other segments of the market, aside from smartphones. Where the recent addition this year is their new 13 inch MateBook X ultrabook. When it comes to making good looking hardware Huawei is up there with the competition. Same can be said about their new MateBook X ultrabook. Which carries the same attractive and polished design that their smartphones have.
In terms of specs the laptop is equipped with a 13 inch IPS display. That supports a resolution of 2160 x 1440 with a 3:2 aspect ratio. This makes the screen come out with a squarish design. That is best for making spreadsheets and working on documents. Aside from that the Huawei Matebook X can also be equipped with either an Intel Core i5 or i7 processor with up to 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM. That can be coupled with either 256 GB or 512 GB of SSD storage.
The keyboard on the Huawei Matebook X looks great. That is not only flush with the design of the laptop. But also comes with a 12mm key travel with back lighting. Aside from that the ultrabook also comes with a precise and responsive trackpad. While the power button on the Huawei Matebook X also acts as a finger print scanner. Which comes with the same molded design found on most Huawei smartphones. Though in terms of ports the Huawei Matebook X comes light. Where the ultrabook is only equipped with two USB Type-C ports on each side. But it’s not as bad as its sound, because Huawei does include a MateDock 2 with every MateBook X ultrabook. Which will provide its users with a single HDMI, VGA and USB Type-A port. Aside from that the laptop also comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Huawei MateBook X is a great laptop that comes with a starting price of $1569. Though if you are someone who is looking for something cheaper than the upcoming Microsoft Surface laptop would be a great alternative.
