Huawei are known for producing smartphones, but their laptops are great too. The MateBook 13 is also ideal for content creators and even gaming. Powered by latest gen Intel i7 with a clock speed of 2.30GHz this is coupled with 16GB RAM and a NVIDIA GeForce MX 250 GC (Graphics Card) with 2GB dedicated memory. The unit that we received from Huawei has been a powerful beast.
Huawei is selling two configurations of the MateBook 13 laptop, an entry-grade version and a high-end version, but both contain the same 13-inch, 2,560 x 1,440 (220 pixels per inch) touchscreen in a 3:2 aspect ratio and 8GB of LPDDR3 memory as well as a fingerprint reader embedded into the power button.
The Huawei MateBook 13 looks like the usual iterative update to its predecessor both on paper and in practice. However, Huawei managed to eke even more graphical power out of the same processor this year with improved thermals and 25% faster fans inside, allowing the graphics chip to use 25 watts of the laptop’s overall power draw – most laptops equipped with the Nvidia MX150 run a 15W, lower-spec version of the chip.
