Lap­top’s a light­weight

Life & Style Weekend - - STUFF - with Ge­off Egan

HUAWEI is not a known name in com­put­ers. In fact they’re still fairly new in phones, their cur­rent bread and but­ter. But the new Matebook X is the com­pany’s lat­est at­tempt to break into the lap­top mar­ket.

It might look like (and the name sounds just like) Ap­ple’s MacBook, but the Matebook X is a Win­dows lap­top aimed at porta­bil­ity.

Mar­keted as a 13-inch screen smaller than a A4 sheet of pa­per, the Matebook X is so thin it is nearly too small for some ports. Like the im­pres­sive Dell XPS13 the Matebook X fea­tures a screen that is nearly without bezels. But the size fac­tor does mean the ma­chine doesn’t have a big bat­tery – just 5449mAh and that may limit its ap­peal. Aus­tralian price TBA
