Huawei Matebook X WT-W09 review

 

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

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 bizarro MacBook Pro

 

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.

Slower SSD than competitors'; Mediocre battery life; ; Sporting a gorgeous, all-aluminum body; a silent, fanless design; and up to an Intel Core-i7 CPU, Huawei's MateBook X is like a MacBook that runs Windows, but better.

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 review: Work in style with this elegant Windows 10 laptop

 

While Huawei primarily focuses on smartphones, last year it released the MateBook Windows tablet. This year, Huawei announced two laptops and a tablet as it continues to bring its smartphone innovation to the desktop.

High quality design, fit, and finish ; Long battery life ; Liquid resistant keyboard ; High screen-to-body ratio with minimal bezels ; Compelling Dolby Atmos speaker system ; Fast Windows Hello fingerprint scanner

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,...
