Huawei MateBook X (i5-7200U, 256 GB) Subnotebook Review

 

Novice with space technology. Huawei's first laptop in the fashionable 3:2 format convinces mainly with its case and the excellent screen. The innovative cooling system is particularly interesting. Initially we had problems with the input devices, but...

well-built case that offers a good presentation... ; ...with a very stiff lid ; compact, very small bezels ; 3:2 screen format ; well-thought-out adapter is included ; DisplayPort via USB Type-C ; fingerprint sensor integrated into the On/Off button ;...

the device itself only has 2x USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C ; no Kensington, no card reader ; keyboard has a slightly spongy feel ; contrast is not optimal ; reflective display ; hardly usable outside ; massive CPU/GPU throttling during long constant high load ;...

In our opinion, Huawei's debut in the notebook market has succeeded. The well-built MateBook X in the emergent 3:2 format is very compact, sturdy, looks good, and brings a new, passive MEPCM cooling system, which is good enough for normal operation to...

Huawei MateBook X review

 

A better MacBook Pro for Windows Ultrabook fans

Fantastic design ; Beautiful and unique display ; Great audio capabilities

High price ; Limited connectivity options ; Lackluster battery life

The Huawei MateBook X is the first attempt by the Chinese firm at making a laptop, but it has actually succeeded impressively well offering everything you'd expect from a portable computing option in 2017.

Huawei MateBook X

 

The Huawei Matebook X is a super-slim laptop with a slick design at a reasonable price, though it lacks the pizazz and features of competing ultraportables.

Super-thin design. Sharp display. Includes a port dock.

No touch-screen option. USB-C only. So-so battery life.

The Huawei MateBook X may not wow with its battery life or feature set, but for $1,099, it offers a nice design, solid construction quality, a sharp display, and decent speeds. You can get more storage and port options in slightly pricier laptops, some...

Huawei MateBook X laptop review: more beautiful than useful

 

A throwback to the bad old days of Windows laptops

Lovely, durable design ; Great-sounding, Dolby-endorsed speakers ; Minimal display bezels and unusually low reflectivity ; Comfortable, spacious keyboard

Dysfunctional touchpad ; Evanescent battery life ; Can’t take it anywhere without dongles

Huawei MateBook X

 

Huawei isn't the first name that springs to mind when you're on the market for a new laptop, but hasn't stopped it from creating one of 2017's prettiest portable computers, the MateBook X. Huawei's first laptop is an impressive machine, and rivals the...

Huawei MateBook X review: The first notebook from Huawei is very nearly a MacBook killer

 

Apple's MacBook dominates, but is it time for Huawei's MateBook X to take the crown?

Slim and light ; Fantastic speakers ; Fingerprint reader

Multitasking performance isn't great ; USB Type-C ports limited in odd ways

However, if you absolutely must have that extra inch of screen real estate, the MateBook X is hard to beat. It’s a rather lovely, ultraportable 13in laptop.

Huawei Matebook X

 

People say imitation is a form of flattery, but what do you call it when that imitation surpasses the original? In the case of Apple's 12-inch MacBook, it's called the Huawei MateBook X. After testing the waters with its first Windows 2-in-1 in 2016,...

Huawei MateBook X review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Huawei MateBook X laptop looks every inch a desirable, portable computer. It's thinner than a MacBook Air and has a powerful processor inside. Here's what to expect from Huawei's new slimline laptop.

Huawei MateBook X Review

 

Usually I'd advise against buying a first generation effort, regardless of brand or device. That's especially true for new device categories, but it still holds true for established machines like laptops. When a company jumps in for the first time,...
