Gizchina News of the week
Previously, we have talked about 8 selling points of the Huawei MateBook X Pro. So we know it’s a top-notch model with tons of superior features. Among them, we can find a 13.9-inch screen with a resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels. It also has a screen share of 91% and a pixel density of 260PPi. As it comes with narrowed bezels, the company has had to hide the front camera under the F-key that is placed between F6 and F7 keys.
Of course, this laptop sports the latest generation Core i7 processor paired with a 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and MX150 graphics card. (There is also a regular variant with an 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD.) The battery capacity is 57.4Wh, which is said to provide a video playback up to 12 hours.
The laptops have become slimmer. So the heat dissipation can affect the performance and longevity. But this is not a reason to worry, as the Huawei MateBook X Pro adopts a negative pressure cooling cabin technology, equipped with a shark fin continuously variable fan, which can intelligently switch between silent mode and high-efficiency mode. At last, there are a few interfaces such as a USB Type-A, two USB Type-C, and a headphone jack.
As for pricing, the Huawei MateBook X Pro i5/8GB/256GB/UHD620 is available at 7988 yuan, i5/8GB+256GB/MX150 is priced at 8688 yuan, i7/8GB+256GB/MX150 costs 9988 yuan, and the i7/16GB+512GB/MX150 costs 12.988 yuan.
