As for the screen, it is a model of reduced size, 13 inches, with a 2160×1440. The colours are faithful, warm enough, and the contrasts allow a high level of detail. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.3 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
Glossy screens are best suited to the indoor environment. Matebook Touchscreen will be ideal for movies, photos and games in a dark or half light environment because you will have the means to control light intensity. On the other hand, you may feel visually tired after 2 or 3 hours of viewing.
On the sound side, it Matebook Touchscreen has good components: board and integrated speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Even if the result is good, be aware that even the best laptops will never beat a hi-fi system on this point. In other words, if you are demanding on the sound part, you will have to add external speakers.
The processor installed on this model is a Intel Core i7-8565U sufficient one for audio and video. Although it is in the middle of the range, this processor will be able to evolve according to your future needs, and in the immediate future will allow a good compatibility with all your peripherals.

Either it’s something you’re going to use while travelling or on the go, or you’re between your office and the living room.You get 10 hours of battery life, which is better than many other models. What a pleasure it is not to have to check the battery level on a regular basis!

The designers of this did not consider it useful to integrate the backlit keyboard. But, unless you work in the dark, you won’t see the point.
