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: watch out Apple, Huawei is coming for you


The Huawei Matebook X is a triumphant entry into the ultra-portable laptop segment

Amazing design and screen ; Great sound ; Fingerprint sensor

Slightly odd USB-C setup ; You may never be able to buy it

Huawei MateBook X review: Huawei goes after the MacBook


Overall, the MateBook X is a compelling option and a wonderful debut from a company that you won't associate with laptops just yet - but will in the

Slim and light design ; Great display with minimal bezel ; Good keyboard and typing experience ; Excellent sound quality (with Dolby Atmos) ; Fingerprint scanner in perfect position

Likely to be expensive (prices yet to be revealed) ; Slightly limited connectivity ; Gets hot under load ; Battery life not best-in-class ; Backlight not the best from all angles

The real winner in the MateBook X is its design. This laptop fires itself right into the centre of the Ultrabook pack, likely to cause the go-to MacBook and Dell XPS some disruption thanks to its slim and light design, very usable keyboard and...

Huawei MateBook X review


X marks the spot for Huawei's MacBook rival

Powerful CPU can cope with any desktop duties ; Slimline design is gorgeous, especially those screen bezels ; Great sound to match stellar picture quality

Standby battery life is awful ; Touchpad can be tricky ; A few build quality stumbles ; More expensive than a MacBook

A sterling first effort at a powerful ultraportable, besting Apple in some areas - but the MateBook X isn’t perfect

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.

The beautiful Huawei MateBook X is £300 off


Huawei's MacBook wannabe is a steal at this price

Yes, it can get rather hot thanks to its fanless design, and you may find that 4GB of RAM makes some Windows tasks a bit of a chore, but this is designed for portability, not power. At over £1,200, this may have been a stretch, but with £300 off it’s a...

Huawei MateBook X review: The MacBook rival has dropped in price


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 review


Huawei is attempting to go toe to toe with Apple and Microsoft with its first ever laptop: the MateBook X. Here's what we think of the slick new ultrabook.

The MateBook X would be an impressive laptop under any circumstances - the fact that it's Huawei's first just makes it even more so. Huawei has definitely nailed the design and build quality, while the keyboard is also impressively tactile for such a...

Huawei Matebook X review: The Windows laptop that thinks like a MacBook


The Huawei Matebook X is a supremely sleek 13-inch laptop that bears a striking resemblance to the MacBook Pro.

The Huawei Matebook X has a stylish aluminum design that impresses everyone who sees it. It has a Dolby Atmos audio system and its power button doubles as a fingerprint reader.

The US price is still not confirmed, configuration options are limited and it lacks a touchscreen.

The thin, light and fast Matebook X is a tempting MacBook alternative for Windows 10 fans.

Huawei MateBook X review: Almost the perfect ultraportable


A fine laptop with exceptional screen and audio that's compromised by average performance and battery life

Every laptop design is a compromise between portability, power, battery life and design, and the MacBook X is no exception. It sacrifices power for a fanless and highly portable design that I prefer to the Dell XPS 13, but also forsakes the exceptional...
