Description

Huawei MateBook is slim and light for its class, but feels well-built and sturdy. Bonus points go for the metal-made frame and back, which give the slate a nice, premium feel in the hand. One clever addition is the 360-degree fingerprint reader, situated discretely between the volume buttons. On the front, 84% of the area is taken up by a 12-inch, LCD display with sufficiently high resolution – 2160x1440 pixels (216 ppi). The hardware that ticks under the Huawei MateBook's hood, is an Intel Core M. It is paired with either 4 or 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, and a 128/256/512GB SSD stores your data. The battery inside has a capacity fo 33.7Wh and should be good for about 9 hours of use. Charging is done through the single USB Type-C connector, to which you can also attach an expansion dock granting you HDMI and VGA outputs, as well as two full-sized USB 3.0 Type-A connectors and an Ethernet port.
