Review On Huawei MateBook
According to reviews, the 2-in-1 Windows hybrid Huawei MateBook fits a full PC into an iPad-sized tablet chassis.
According to BetaNews, the well-known Chinese company Huawei competes with Microsoft in the field of the Windows world. The company is looking to make a name for itself in the U.S. with its all-new affordable MateBook Windows 10 tablet/laptop hybrid that rivals Microsoft's Surface.
CNet's review on the Huawei MateBook appreciates its excellent speakers and screen as well as the fast fingerprint sensor. However, in order to use the device like a PC, users have to pay extra for the dock, stylus and keyboard.
Huawei's latest device is a 12-inch Windows tablet as slim as an iPad Pro. The hybrid is one of the first full Windows 10 computers that can fit inside an iPad Pro-sized chassis.
The hybrid 2-in-1 is powered by Intel's new Core M processors. However, Intel Core M-powered computers aren't all the same. In a thin tablet like this one, a Core M is notably weaker than one in a laptop-sized chassis. The MateBook isn't as fast as a thicker Core M machine. There is a delay before web pages would load or applications would launch.
The hybrid 2-in-1 comes with a sleek design and, like an iPad Pro, users can attach a keyboard to turn the tablet into a PC. The Matebook's leather-bound backlit keyboard has a modern design. The built-in touchpad comes with an extremely fine surface.
In the basic configuration, coming with Core M3, 128 GB SSD and 4 GB RAM, the MateBook costs $699. The top configuration, coming with Core m5, 512 GB SSD and 8 GB RAM, has a price tag of $1,199.
The 12-inch TFT LCD display provides 2160 x 1440 resolution. In terms of connectivity, the device comes with Wi-Fi: 802.11ac 2.4/5 GHz and Bluetooth 4.1. The MateBook also features a front-facing camera at 5 MP.
Huawei's 2-in-1 weights 640 g and measures 278.8 x 194.1 x 6.9 mm. The hybrid comes in grey and gold color options. The keyboard case color options are beige, orange, brown and black.
