Huawei MateBook X (i5-7200U, 256 GB) Subnotebook Review

 

Novice with space technology. Huawei's first laptop in the fashionable 3:2 format convinces mainly with its case and the excellent screen. The innovative cooling system is particularly interesting. Initially we had problems with the input devices, but...

well-built case that offers a good presentation... ; ...with a very stiff lid ; compact, very small bezels ; 3:2 screen format ; well-thought-out adapter is included ; DisplayPort via USB Type-C ; fingerprint sensor integrated into the On/Off button ;...

the device itself only has 2x USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C ; no Kensington, no card reader ; keyboard has a slightly spongy feel ; contrast is not optimal ; reflective display ; hardly usable outside ; massive CPU/GPU throttling during long constant high load ;...

In our opinion, Huawei's debut in the notebook market has succeeded. The well-built MateBook X in the emergent 3:2 format is very compact, sturdy, looks good, and brings a new, passive MEPCM cooling system, which is good enough for normal operation to...

Huawei MateBook X

 

The Huawei Matebook X is a super-slim laptop with a slick design at a reasonable price, though it lacks the pizazz and features of competing ultraportables.

Super-thin design. Sharp display. Includes a port dock.

No touch-screen option. USB-C only. So-so battery life.

The Huawei MateBook X may not wow with its battery life or feature set, but for $1,099, it offers a nice design, solid construction quality, a sharp display, and decent speeds. You can get more storage and port options in slightly pricier laptops, some...

Huawei MateBook X laptop review: more beautiful than useful

 

A throwback to the bad old days of Windows laptops

Lovely, durable design ; Great-sounding, Dolby-endorsed speakers ; Minimal display bezels and unusually low reflectivity ; Comfortable, spacious keyboard

Dysfunctional touchpad ; Evanescent battery life ; Can’t take it anywhere without dongles

The Matebook X is a superbly engineered laptop that puts Huawei's competitors on notice.

Huawei Matebook X

 

People say imitation is a form of flattery, but what do you call it when that imitation surpasses the original? In the case of Apple's 12-inch MacBook, it's called the Huawei MateBook X. After testing the waters with its first Windows 2-in-1 in 2016,...

Huawei MateBook X Review

 

Usually I'd advise against buying a first generation effort, regardless of brand or device. That's especially true for new device categories, but it still holds true for established machines like laptops. When a company jumps in for the first time,...

Huawei MateBook X Review and Ratings

 

Despite its Apple-esque design and sub-par battery life, Huawei's first laptop impresses with powerful Core processors, a fanless shell, and one of the best fingerprint readers we've tested in a laptop.

Fanless, despite Core i7 performance ; Impressive (if derivative) design and build quality ; Attractive 13-inch Gorilla-glass screen ; Great speakers for a thin laptop ; Port-expanding USB-C dock included in the box

So-so battery life ; Solid-state drive is oddly partitioned, resulting in a cramped c: drive

We'd like to see more-competitive battery life, and we're still not sure the solution to creating the perfect Windows laptop these days is to continue to ape Apple's designs. But the MateBook X is nonetheless an impressive showing, especially...

Huawei Matebook X review: The cost of a Windows PC with a MacBook design

 

Good in many ways, but you're really paying for the Apple-like design.

If you buy the Huawei Matebook X, you do it because you want a MacBook-style PC that runs Windows. It's a perfectly fine device, and it surpasses Apple's laptop with practical features like the integrated fingerprint sensor, the extra USB Type-C port,...

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.
