Last Year, Huawei released MateBook X pro which was tagged as the best laptop that you could buy, It is best enough to compete with Flagship computer companies like Apple’s MacBook Pro and Dell’s XPS 13. Now at CES 2019, the company is all set to give details on its new MateBook 13. It lands somewhere between cheaper MateBook D and the premium MateBook X Pro as it comes on an affordable price.
Like other MateBook Laptops, this new MateBook offers you an aspect ratio display 3:2, but at a 13-inch size with a 2160 x 1440 resolution, instead of the larger 13.9-inch 3000 x 2000 display on the MateBook X Pro. It is also thicker than the MateBook, Despite the fact that it got a large size about 14.9mm thick but it is still thinner than Apple new MacBook Air.
Huawei is currently selling two models of new MateBook 13, first one is the base model with an 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8265U Whiskey Lake processor, 256GB of storage, and integrated graphics. It also consists of a more powerful i7-8565U model which will have 512GB of storage and a discrete Nvidia MX150 GPU. But both models only offer 8GB of RAM, along with two USB-C ports.
Just like MateBook X and X pro, the MateBook 13 will feature the same fingerprint reader integrated power button, and it also has the MateBook X Pro’s creative keyboard webcam for one placed in a slightly thicker top bezel. Unlike MateBook X, the MateBook 13 will face competition in the market as the Core i5 model selling for $999 and the Core i7 version going for $1,299. However, MateBook 13 will go on sale from January 29th at Amazon, Newegg, and other retailers, and will be available in the US.
If MateBook 13 can give good battery life and better performance than MateBook X pro, Huawei probably then dominates the market again with its affordable priced laptops.
Apart from New MateBook, Huawei revealed an Andriod tablet named the MediaPad M5 Lite. The new tablet features a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 display, and it is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 659 processor, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
