Huawei Just Dropped Its Own MacBook Air Called The 'MateBook X'
The MateBook Laptop was Huawei’s first-ever Windows 10 device, but it largely missed the impression on several aspects. Today, Huawei is back with a trio of new series of laptops that will take on Apple's MacBook Air. The three laptops are MateBook X, MateBook E, and MateBook D.
Get To Know MateBook X
Huawei's MateBook X is a Windows 10 ultraportable laptop that solves many problems users had with the original MateBook. It has a 13-inch display feature and a traditional aluminum clamshell design. It also sports Intel Core i5 and i7 processors rather than the less powerful Core m series. Allegedly, the MateBook X lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge while watching 1080p video.
The rest of the hardware of the Huawei's MateBook X is similarly impressive, according to The Verge. The display offers a 3:2 aspect ratio at a remarkably 2K resolution and with a 4.4mm bezel. Its storage comes in variants of 256GB and 512GB SSD, while the power button has a compatible fingerprint reader for an easier "Windows Hello" opening.
The only hesitation a user of the new laptop may have is its RAM. It will come in 4GB or 8GB choices, but given the portable-focused quality of the MateBook X, 8GB is the enough weight for the average user. The good news is that Huawei drops the touchscreen and convertibility feature on MateBook X, as reported by TechCrunch.
The MateBook X uses USB-C and also offers a pair of ports — one for data transfer and one for charging. However, to make the transition easier, the Chinese multinational networking company is including a MateDock 2.0 USB-C dongle in the box in few markets. Meaning, some boxes offers a regular USB Type-A port, HDMI, DVI and a second USB-C port for pass-through charging.
MateBook E and MateBook D
MateBook E is an updated version of the original Huawei MateBook. The laptop offers the same basic design but with upgrades on the screen to a 2K panel from 1080p. An improved magnet connecting the folio to the table is also refreshed with the E series. Huawei claims that the MateBook E extends up to nine long hours of battery life.it holds up.
The Huawei MateBook D is a 15-inch laptop targeting a wider, midrange group of buyers. Its specs are less interesting compared to the MateBook D such as a 1080p display, Intel’s i5 and i7 processor, and choice of either 4GB, 8GB or 16GB of RAM. The firm notes that MateBook D still offers a thin and all-metal design.
