Wouldn’t it be knife Ideas to help you up your cut­lery game this Christ­mas Huawei MateBook X Pro

A premium lap­top with big­ger specs than El­ton John.

Huawei is best known for its smart­phones, but the Chi­nese com­pany has a new range of tablets and com­put­ers. The top-of-the-line MateBook X Pro takes aim at both the Mac­Book Pro and Sur­face Pro with sim­i­lar char­ac­ter­is­tics but at a lower price point.

All the boxes that make an ex­cep­tional lap­top are ticked on the MateBook X Pro with an In­tel Core i7 pro­ces­sor, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce MX150 ded­i­cated GPU with 2GB of mem­ory and a 512GB NVMe PCIe SSD.

The fi­nesse is pro­vided by a 3K LTPS touch­screen dis­play which has a 91 per cent screen-to-body ra­tio. This “full view” de­sign of­fers a near bor­der­less screen and with its 3000x2000 res­o­lu­tion gives de­tailed and vi­brant vi­su­als.

A sub­stan­tial 57.4Wh bat­tery ca­pac­ity will eas­ily han­dle a full day of busi­ness or so­cial en­deav­ours be­fore it needs to be charged.

The re­cessed cam­era on the key­board is a great idea but falls a lit­tle short in prac­tice due to its shal­low un­mov­able an­gle that re­quires you to be sat a bit fur­ther back than you’d like.

Those who want a gen­uine com­put­ing beast with a slick de­sign for far less than you’d pay for a com­peti­tor from Ap­ple or Mi­crosoft.

You are eas­ily swayed by con­spir­acy the­o­ries, par­tic­u­larly the one that US se­cu­rity agen­cies hold that Huawei is in ca­hoots with the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment/ mil­i­tary and us­ing its telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions equip­ment to spy on us.
