The detail of our analysis in this article.
MateBook X Pro adapted to surf the internet?
Even if your use is limited to surfing the Web, writing e-mails and sometimes using an Excel spreadsheet, the minimum computer quality is essential.It is necessary to be able to count on a quality laptop that will not let you down in 2 years, due to obsolescence.The key is to achieve balance with a cheap but solid laptop.Here you have an almost perfect product.By putting on the market the MateBook X Pro, Huawei offers a well thought-out product of very good quality.
With a 13.9 inches size, you’ll be able to carry it easily. For all users who don’t appreciate the use of the mouse (with or without wires), it MateBook X Pro is provided by default with a touch screen. The materials here are of such a high standard that they will last for many years. Knowing that the visible parts are generally less important than the internal components of the computer, we can guess that a lot of care Huawei has been taken in the overall design of this model.
The processor which equips this model, one Core i7-10510U, will be largely sufficient; it may even be too powerful compared to the need. Its power will give you the assurance of having a laptop that will work very well for 10 years. In addition, with this model, you have at your disposal a tool that will make your internet navigation fluid. A standard equipment with 16 Gb of RAM. It’s the certainty that the computer will work better and longer.
By offering a hard drive of this size, the company is making this model one of the laptops with the largest disk space on the market. Even with 1000 Gb, you can be sure that many video and audio files are continuously stored. In case you would have to do without any internet connection, this size of space can be interesting.
Finally, thanks to an autonomy of 10 hours, you will have enough time to browse the web in Internet browsing mode with active Wifi. This is one of the most important laptops on the market at the moment compared to other laptops. Incidentally, you will have all the more pleasure to use it for a long time because of its very pleasant screen.
Is MateBook X Pro one for watching movies and listening to music ?
The MateBook X Pro will now allow you to go beyond the exclusive use for work and will also serve as a tool for digital entertainment. A blend of your TV, stereo and media players in one machine. We discovered through the tests we put it to, that it is one of the best on the market. In this section we will look at features such as screen size, resolution, built-in speakers.
Equipped with a small screen size, 13.9 inches, it has a resolution format 2160×1440. Nevertheless, the colours remain beautiful, with detailed contrasts in the images. The major disadvantage of its small size is that in multimedia mode, watching a movie can be tiring for your eyes. However, this computer has a criteria that will interest some nomadic users, the weight; here it weighs only 1.3 kg, partly thanks to its small screen size.
Like the majority of the laptops screen on the market, this model is equipped with the glossy finish. Huawei is primarily intended for film lovers the MateBook X Pro. Taking full advantage of the backlighting, this tile benefits from the glossy coating which offers more contrasts. On the other hand, because of this, the screen requires the viewer to take a break every 2 hours or so.
For the sound part, the MateBook X Pro is equipped with a correct sound card and speakers. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. In short, it is relevant here to consider buying additional speakers if you are very sensitive to the quality of this function.
The processor installed on this model is a high-end Core i7-10510U. Belonging to the latest generation of processors, this laptop will not be impressed by multiple multimedia tasks. This means that several billion calculations can be carried out simultaneously.
With NVIDIA GeForce MX250, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 16 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Sufficient for the majority of you, this will not be the case for those who want to make 3D images.
Huawei didn’t prioritize connectivity on this laptop. The MateBook X Pro only 2 ports only provides you with ports. You will have to choose which items to plug in first, as there is no room for all your peripherals.
As for the batteries, you could almost replace your TV set with this MateBook X Pro one. With 10 hours of autonomy, it is one of the best models in its range. No need to constantly check the battery level; you’ll be able to watch movies and listen to music for a long time.
Is MateBook X Pro planned for travelling ?
The main interest of the laptop, is how easy it can be taken away. We therefore analysed this MateBook X Pro from the point of view of nomadic use. Is it made to be taken on trips, packed in your luggage ? Will it be designed for your home-to-work transfers? Should you only consider it for weekend trips with your family? Or should this use be confined to going from the living room to your kitchen.
However, we were able to discover through his overall score, that it is among the best for the travel aspect.
With a weight of 1.3 Kg, it is easily transportable. It is one of the lightest in this category. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. The 13.9 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
The touch screen is present on the MateBook X Pro, which gives you the possibility to avoid using the mouse. A few finger pinches to zoom in, side slides to test the comfort of use. The selections are precise in the cursor movement, making navigation seamless.
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.
The glossy slab offers better viewing comfort than the previous model. A beautiful screen and quality images. On the other hand, this shiny slab can be a nuisance in brightly lit areas.
No anti-reflective tile is provided on this model. It would have allowed a better use of this model outdoors.
Equipped with a processor Core i7-10510U, this model has a very low power consumption. Mainly related to low voltage, this processor allows an above-average autonomy (on paper).
Please note that the autonomy is provided as an indication by Huawei, and that you should rather take 70% of this value into account.
Regarding the autonomy of this laptop, you will have 10 hours before having to reconnect; that is to say one of the best csore on the market.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 1000 Gb. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .For those who will need more space, this MateBook X Pro will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.
Even though your laptop will stay in the hotel more often than in a briefcase when you take it to the airport, you will appreciate its volume. With a screen of 13.9 inches and an ultra light weight, it is one of the best in its category.
The manufacturer offers only a few connection options, with only 2 connectors. This makes it one of the least well equipped models currently.
The techno bluetooth of this model will allow you to connect locally to any type of device that accepts this communication protocol: phone, connected speakers, car…
In conclusion, it can be considered that this MateBook X Pro can be used for travel purposes.
