Huawei MateBook X Pro
Price €1,499-€1,899, https:// consumer.huawei.com
Although it’s most famous for making phones, China’s Huawei is now targeting the laptop market in a big way. First there was the MateBook, which we looked at in Issue 138, and now there’s this: the seriously svelte MateBook X Pro – a Windows 10 laptop with an almost bezel-less 13.9-inch touchscreen display, 12-hour battery life and Dolby Atmos stereo sound.
Huawei offers a choice of eighth-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors, switchable Intel UHD Graphics 620/Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics (depending on configuration) and up to 16GB of RAM, as well as up to 500GB of solid-state storage… all of which is crammed into the MateBook X Pro’s 16.6mm thin, 1.33kg aluminium unibody.
Obvious nods to Apple’s MacBook aside, this laptop also has a rather nifty add-on: a recessed webcam that pops up from the keyboard when needed.
