Huawei MateBook 13 hands-on review

 

Huawei takes aim at Apple's most popular laptop

Huawei MateBook 13 initial review: Pro X lite feels

 

We check out the new Huawei MateBook 13, the company's latest laptop for those on a tighter budget

Aluminium design ; Price ; 3:2 ratio touch display

Not as powerful as the Pro X model ; Heavier than the competition

For the price, the MateBook 13 looks to be well made and is likely to impress many who can't stretch to the more powerful and bigger Pro X model.

Huawei MateBook 13 first-look review: Ultraportable excellence

 

Fancy buying a top-quality, lightweight 13in laptop for under a grand? The Huawei MateBook 13 is a contender.

While we haven’t had the chance to properly test the MateBook 13, and so don’t know exactly how fast it is under pressure, we’ve seen enough to know this is going to be one of the best-selling laptops of 2019.

The MateBook 13 is the closest you can get to a MacBook Air running Windows - for a lot less money. Here's what we thought when we tested it out at CES 2019

Huawei Matebook 13 Review: Good Value, Short Endurance

 

For a premium ultrabook, the Huawei MateBook 13 gives you a lot of performance for the money. For just $1,299 in the U.S. ($999 to start, UK pricing TBD), you get a super-light, aluminum laptop with a Core i7 Whiskey Lake Processor, Nvidia MX150...

The Huawei MateBook 13 has sleek, Mac-inspired looks and strong performance at a good price, but weak battery life holds it back.

Huawei MateBook 13 review: An uninspiring MacBook Air clone

 

The Huawei MateBook 13 offers powerful performance, a comfortable keyboard and a roomy trackpad in an uninspired chassis. Throw in a serviceable but somewhat dim display and mediocre battery life, and you've got a good but ultimately unexciting laptop.

Powerful performance ; Comfortable keyboard

Heavy ; Screen is a bit dim

Huawei MateBook 13

 

Discrete graphics, an unusual screen aspect ratio, and a tempting price make Huawei's MateBook 13 ultraportable worth a look for traveling execs or even light gamers.

Handsome, compact design. Colorful display with 3:2 aspect ratio. Lively performance. USB-C dock included.

Core i7 config has 8GB, not 16GB, of memory. No Thunderbolt 3 port. No SD card slot.

Bottom Line: Discrete graphics, an unusual screen aspect ratio, and a tempting price make Huawei's MateBook 13 ultraportable worth a look for traveling execs or even light gamers.

Huawei MateBook 13 review: sophomore struggles

 

The MateBook 13's biggest problem is the MateBook X Pro.

Great build quality ; Excellent keyboard and trackpad ; Compact design with 3:2 display ; Powerful processor plus optional discrete GPU

Below-average battery life ; Limited USB-C ports ; No Thunderbolt 3 support ; Overly aggressive automatic brightness sensor

If you are looking for the most compact premium Windows laptop with a 3:2 display, discrete graphics, and a great price, the MateBook 13 is it. But most people should just go with the MateBook X Pro instead.

Huawei MateBook 13 (i7-8565U, GeForce MX150) Laptop Review

 

A GPU beast. Don't let its diminutive size fool you — this 3:2 13.0-inch laptop is equipped with a much faster GPU than your typical Ultrabook. Huawei's latest offering is supposed to be a mid-range product, but its unique build and specifications are...

MateDock 2 docking station included in box ; impressive GPU performance for the size ; large keyboard keys and trackpad ; faster than the MateBook X Pro ; silent during low-medium loads ; high quality 3:2 touchscreen ; normal webcam placement

right USB-C port does not support AC adapter charging ; moderate-heavy uneven backlight bleeding ; cannot recharge and game simultaneously ; keys could be firmer; shallow travel ; high-pitched fans when gaming ; limited to 8 GB of soldered RAM ;...

The MateBook 13 is priced slightly lower than the flagship MateBook X Pro because it's supposed to be a lower-tier option. In reality, it actually outperforms the X Pro while keeping the super-thin and attractive chassis design intact. We're not just...
