We’ve be writing about and reviewing Huawei’s laptops over the years, and they are playing in the same ballpark as other Windows laptops from Lenovo, HP, Dell, ASUS and Acer in terms of design, performance, features and value. Tech Guide took a hands-on look at the Huawei MateBook X Pro at the launch event in Bangkok. From the first time you touch it feel a little different. It has a soft touch despite being made from magnesium alloy rather than the traditional anodised aluminium.
The MateBook X Pro, a cutting-edge new laptop that delivers not only a clean style and performance but also a number of distinctive features, was one of the outstanding products at the Huawei Smart Office launch this week. Although customers don’t typically think of Huawei when considering laptops, the business has made tremendous strides in recent years thanks to excellent design and the addition of useful functions.
Huawei calls this “skin soothing” material which is achieved with a special polymer to give it that soft feel. At the launch event the only colour we saw was ink blue, but Huawei says the MateBook X Pro will also be available in white. It weighs just 1.26kg and has a 14.2-inch display with 92.5 per cent screen-to-body ratio thanks to the super thin bezels. The screen has a 3120 x 2080 resolution and 264ppi (pixels per inch) so photos and video and all your document are razor sharp. And with a 90Hz refresh rate, videos look slick and smooth.
