Smaller than the new MacBook Air, but with stronger performance, do you like the Huawei MateBook 13?
It was not long ago Huawei released their fist notebook in February 2016 as they are new in notebook field. But within two years they have gone a long way and fast enough.
After MateBook, Huawei expanded its product from a single 2-in-1 format to X, E, and D series, and in the first half of this year, it brought MateBook X Pro with "full screen" design.
However, they did not stop there, in November 6 Huawei held a new product tasting meeting in Wuhan, the official release of the new MateBook 13. Its arrival also expanded Huawei's notebook product line to four.
If you've seen MateBook X Pro before, there's must be some familiarity with MateBook 13, and there's little difference between the two in the overall design style. However, the latter's arc processing at the edge of the A side is more obvious, so the visual vision is more "younger".
Material selection, MateBook 13 is still an all-metal fuselage, while the surface used sandblasting treatment to ensure a good texture. As far as the scene is concerned, it feels more delicate, and it is not easy to touch fingerprints. It ismore convenient to take care of.
Let’s Focus on the B side of MateBook 13. It comes with a 13-inch non-touch screen with a resolution of 2160x1440, a scale of 3:2, a maximum brightness of 300nit, and a 100% SRGB gamut.
In contrast to MateBook X Pro, the distinct differences between the two are located on the screen border. One of the biggest highlights of the MateBook X Pro is that it puts the camera in the keyboard area to achieve a very high screen ratio, and this time the MateBook 13 "re-" moved the camera back to the top of our familiar screen.
It is also true that you will find that its screen border is slightly wider than MateBook X Pro. Reaction to the screen share, the MateBook 13 screen share is 88% (official data), although lower than MateBook X Pro, but still more than 80% of the new MacBook Air.
In the overall layout of the C-face, the MateBook 13 and the MateBook X Pro are basically the same except that the "camera button" is canceled in the keyboard area. In addition to the button adjustment, its keystrokes belong to the normal level of similar products (it is better than the MacBook Pro), the feedback adjustment is relatively moderate, and the overall knocking feeling is not bad.
Like the MateBook X Pro, the MateBook 13 still features a power and fingerprint 2-in-1 button. The benefits of this are mainly reflected in two aspects. One is to reduce the opening, the overall body is better, and the other is to reduce the two operations of booting and unlocking into one step, which is more convenient to use.
It is worth mentioning that this time Huawei's MateBook 13 brings a new feature called "One Touch", its main use is to quickly transfer files between mobile phones and computers (via NFC), you only need to The phone and the computer can be touched with a light touch, which is very simple to operate.
According to the official presentation at the press conference, it takes only two minutes to transfer 1000 photos. However, we also learned from the staff that the MateBook 13's one-touch function only supports Huawei phones with NFC.
Controlling the screen size to 13 inches also means that the MateBook 13 puts more emphasis on portability. It has a body weight of 1.28kg and a maximum thickness of 14.9 mm. Compared to the MacBook Air just released at the end of last month, the body thickness is 0.7mm thinner and the overall size is 6% smaller.
In terms of external expansion capability, the Huawei MateBook 13 is equipped with a Type-C interface and a headphone/microphone combo interface on the left side, and a Type-C interface on the right side of the camera. In terms of actual use, you may still need to purchase an additional docking station.
As for the configuration aspect that everyone cares about, the MateBook 13 is equipped with Intel's eighth-generation Core processor (optional i5/i7), 8GB of memory, and 256GB or 512GB SSD for body storage. In addition, it uses Huawei shark fin fan (dual fan) 2.0, the official said that compared with the traditional fan, the air volume increased by 25%.
This time MateBook 13 also supports Dolby Atmosphere, but because the live experience area is relatively noisy, how to actually do it without much evaluation.
Finally, in addition to the cherry powder version shown in our article, Huawei MateBook 13 also offers deep space ash and Haoyue silver color options.
