Huawei MateBook X Pro or MacBook with Windows

It is already the fourth year as Huawei has become a Laptop vendor. The new model of Huawei is equipped with the 11th Generation of Intel i7 processors. Being only a 14-inch laptop is well suited for caring on a daily basis. The brushed aluminium case, keyboard and touchpad are very similar to MacBook Pro what makes it a decent opponent. First time when we met this laptop we were confused and when a well-known windows layout appeared.

Design

Even with unpacking with the new Huawei Mate is experience, quality packaging is really making sure that the laptop stays untouched and undamaged from external factors. Smoot body of laptop made of fine-brushed aluminium that weighs only 1.33kg.

It definitely resembles the MacBook layout with a few small touches. Classic window keyboard and camera that is embedded in keyboard. This is not an ideal position because no matter how you are sitting your nose will be in focus what is really appreciated during the meetings with partners and colleagues.

Touchpad

The touchpad is well-sized and has good response with decent accuracy. Gesture movement is not recognized each time so you will need some time to adjust it. But we can say that nobody in the industry has that part perfect.

Connectivity

MateBook X Pro 2021 is equipped with two USB Type-C ports ( display, charging, or data), a 3.5mm audio jack and single USB 3.2 Type-A port, Wi-Fi 6 controller with BT5.1 support, as well as a Huawei Share NFC module. Laptop also supports wifi docking for Huawei smartphones for sharing the displays and remote control with the phone.

Functionality

The laptop has decent performance but is not ideal for the price tag. It looks like that manufacturer had much more concerns about the long life span and heating instead of managing heavy lifting such as video rendering.

Normal day to day performance is good due to Samsung SSD which has 3391MB/s reads and 3014MB/s writes and that resembles very speed data transfer.

In terms of noise, it is far from MacBook Pro but pretty decent compared to MacBook Air.

Conclusion

It is a decent laptop with a pretty decent configuration but Bertl authors prefer unique and genuine design over the copies. So we recommend some decent HP Spectre 360 or MacBook Pro.
