One of the new generations and top-notch laptops gifted to the public by Huawei is Huawei Matebook 13. This beast offers its buyers better performance than its competitors within the same price range. And not least, it even gives the 2018 Macbook Air a run for its money, in terms of sleek and stylish look and smooth interface.
Some of our readers or Huawei loyal customers may also compare this with the Matebook X Pro. Let us tell you what makes this manufacturer epic. The Huawei Matebook X Pro was already considered one of the elites and enough to say, not even minor tweaks were required. But this manufacturer upgraded some major features, making the interface even more user-friendly. And that too for a very small price change.
It is obvious that to achieve such a competitive price and to ensure their product becomes the bestseller, there may be a lack of minor features that might even go unseen by the beginner’s eye. For instance, the absence of ThunderBolt 3 was felt by some professional users hoping for the fastest data transfers as well as the RAM capacity could also have been a little better.
Despite a few minor setbacks, the Matebook 13 carries on the legacy passed on by the Huawei Matebook X Pro as the most value-packed laptop in the market. It is the best value-packed flagship laptop as well as the longest-lasting laptops we’ve studied and reviewed. Its battery life can last for almost a whole working day even with a hectic load put on this beast.
Putting it in even more easy-to-understand terms, better sleek appearance on the outside, and more raw power and versatility on the inside- when compared to its competitors.
Huawei as a manufacturer has clearly observed the needs and the changing trends of the laptop industry and then swooped in with exactly the kind of features and the sensibility, the laptop users desired or looked forward to in a luxury laptop. The Huawei Matebook 13 does what every other company laptop does, but in a better way and for way less price. That’s why it was even voted ‘Best in Class’ laptop in 2019.
