Huawei MateBook D 14 W50F (Core i5-8250U, 8 GB, 256 GB) Laptop Review


Office or business? The Huawei MateBook D 14 W50F sits between both segments. The stylish case and plentiful security features point towards the laptop being an expensive business laptop. However, Huawei preinstalls Windows 10 Home and has equipped the...

solid, premium case ; relatively compact ; good security features ; well-calibrated display ; quiet ; listenable speakers ; energy-efficient ; long battery life

meagre port selection ; the keyboard has too shallow a stroke for our liking ; below par contrast ratio and maximum brightness ; low colour-space coverage ; poor viewing angles for an IPS display ; comparatively slow SSD ; fan occasionally gets...

We decided to classify the Huawei MateBook D 14 W50F as a premium office notebook in the end, although this has no bearing on its rating. The W50F has a compact and well-built case with decent security features. However, we are not huge fans of its...

Huawei MateBook D (i7-7500U, GeForce 940MX) Laptop Review


Wallet-friendly Huawei's 15.6-inch mainstream laptop surely looks the part, but while the build quality is good and the overall performance decent, the MateBook D suffers from a few significant shortcomings.

aluminum chassis ; high quality construction ; non-glare IPS display ; decent battery life ; comes with SSD and HDD ; likely fairly inexpensive

heavy GPU throttling under load ; runs hot ; keyboard isn't backlit ; color accuracy isn't great ; port selection behind the times

The MateBook D is a conventional clamshell laptop with non-touch 15.6-inch display which is aimed at both home users and - if we take Huawei's slogan for the notebook at face value - businesses alike. Because of the narrow bezel, the aluminum design...

Huawei MateBook D laptop gets CPU, graphics upgrades for the new year


The MateBook D might be the least remarkable computer . It's not a 2-in-1 tablet or a an ultraportable laptop like its siblings. But the 4.2 pound, 15.6 inch Huawei MateBook D does offer decent specs for a decent price of around $700 (or less, these...

Each model has a 1920 x 1080 pixel display with 178 degree viewing angles, a 43.3 Wh battery, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, HDMI, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, and audio jacks. The laptop measures about 0.7 inches thick and weighs about 4.2 pounds.

Is this the best laptop you'll never buy?


The Huawei MateBook 14 is a good lightweight workhorse, but continued political wrangling and availability issues mean it's hard to recommend right now.

Large, high definition display ; Slender design ; Good selection of ports

Battery life doesn’t compare well to other ultrabooks ; Windows won’t be officially supported for much longer

The Huawei Matebook 14 is more versatile and boasts better battery life than the higher-specced MateBook X Pro. Sadly, uncertainty clouding Huawei's future makes this hard to recommend for the time being.

Huawei MateBook 14 initial review: Spreading Huawei's Windows wings


A tweak in design results in a neat, powerful and nicely designed Windows laptop

The overall design, the quality of the finish, keyboard and other contact points - as well as that funky pop-up camera - will keep winning Huawei fans in the laptop space.

Huawei MateBook D review


Huawei's first attempt at a laptop

Lots of connectivity options ; Large display

No backlit keyboard ; Heavy

The new MateBook D isn't the most exciting product in Huawei's first laptop range, but it may be suitable for your next computing device with a solidly built design and lots of impressive spec.
