Huawei MateBook X Pro

HUAWEI is currently the world’s largest manufacturer of electronics, and up until now they’ve been mostly known for their smartphone and tablet models that range from affordable models for the everyday user through to high-end, professional smartphone models such as the Mate 20 Pro for business professionals and even photographers. 

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is the top of their laptop range, and it’s a strong rival for some of the best known names in the industry.  If you’re thinking about purchasing a new laptop and need one that’s sleek, fast and professional, this is the one.

It’s the perfect laptop model for the home user or professional who is looking around for an exceptionally powerful laptop in a slim package that’s an ease to travel with – and doesn’t compromise on audio or visual quality to do it.

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is their newest addition to their laptop range of MateBook models that was first introduced to the consumer market in 2016 – and the lasting success of the preceding models should be a good indicator for what people can expect from the MateBook X Pro.

Here’s how the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro matches up, and why it’s one of the best choices for a professional or home laptop on the market right now. 

Quality, high-definition screen with slim design

The MateBook X Pro is designed to be as slim and lightweight as possibly, weighing in at only 1.33kg (2.93 lbs). The MateBook X Pro is also designed for quality viewing, and it comes equipped with a 13.9-inch screen with a 2000px x 3000px screen resolution at 260 PPI density for the highest quality possible viewing with a crisp HD image that won’t strain your eyes, and added touch-screen capabilities. 

It boasts one of the largest touch-pads for a laptop of its type, and in just a shortwhile since it’s been introduced to the market it has already managed to rival many other similar laptops that might be two or three times the size.

The speed and size of this laptop model makes it perfect for the travelling gamer, programmer, journalist, user or business professional who needs a perfectly performing laptop that does everything you need it to and more without any added, unnecessary weight. 

Loaded with software right out of the box

Software is the first thing people jump to when they’ve just purchased a new laptop, but the MateBook X Pro saves you a lot of time and already comes loaded with an assortment of software right out of the box that makes it perfect for even niche professionals to get started immediately.

It’s made for ease of use, and comes with a one-touch power button, full backup recovery and factory reset assistance and a 57.4 Wh battery that has the capacity to last for hours without the need to plug in or charge even during resource-heavy use that would be taxing for any other system.
