The Huawei MateBook X Pro is the follow up to the MateBook X and since the laptop first came out it has been getting a lot of praise but it was not available in the US till now. US customer can now get the Huawei MateBook X Pro and it is priced at $1200 which is lower than what was expected keeping in mind the premium nature of the Huawei MateBook X Pro and the kind of hardware that you get inside.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro has a 13.9-inch touch display that supports ten-point touch and has a resolution of 3000 x 2000. The super thin bezels on the screen allow the device to achieve a 91% screen to body ratio which is very impressive and it is one of the things that make the Huawei MateBook X Pro very attractive.
The bezels on the screen are so thin that a webcam could not be fitted into the traditional spot and the company had to hide it under one of the keys which does give an odd angle and it gives a view up your nose but it is a very unique take on finding a solution to the problem. The key pops out and you have a webcam. If privacy is important to you then you need not worry about that with the Huawei MateBook X Pro.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro was supposed to cost around $1850 but the $1200 model comes with the Intel Core i5-8250U, 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, a GeForce MX150 graphics card with 2 GB of DDR5 VRAM, and a 256 GB NVMe SSD. Spend an additional $300 and you will get the Core i7-8550U, 16 GB of RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. There is no graphics card upgrade which is a bummer keeping in mind you are spending $1500.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro is a premium device and comes with a pretty good build quality and premium materials. This is something worth looking into if you are in the market for a new laptop. Stay tuned for more information regarding the device.
