The Huawei MateBook 14 2020 is an extraordinary piece of hardware. Not only does it adhere to Huawei’s time-honored tradition of making very well-priced, well-built laptops, but it is also remarkably – and astoundingly powerful. While this $1,000 laptop may seem similar to a MacBook, the resemblance is more than superficial. As far as Windows 10 ultraportables go, this one is a force to be reckoned with.
The Huawei MateBook 14 2020 has a graceful appearance. It’s thin and light, and when closed and tucked inside a bag, it takes up little space. Although it weighs barely 1.49kg, the weight distribution is uneven – the laptop is visibly rear-heavy. However, you will notice only if you are carrying the machine open, which is an unusual occurrence.
The glossy glass cover and slender black bezels give the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 a MacBook-like look. Still, the Huawei machine’s screen margins are substantially thinner than those on any existing Apple computer.
In terms of display, it’s a 14-inch IPS LCD touchscreen with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2160x1440px. This last point is critical since a larger squarish screen with the same diagonal has more surface area than a broader screen.
Simply told, the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 has a larger screen than nearly every other 14-inch laptop available.
Must Check – GT2 HUAWEI WATCH
The keyboard of Huawei matebook 14 2020 is fairly sensitive to touch. The same design keyboard found on Huawei’s larger than 14-inch models (including its Honor brand) may make you want something more robust, but it’s appropriate for the MateBook 14.
This laptop feels just right. It features a magnificent screen that feels as though it extends to the unit’s edge (Huawei refers to this as its own-branded FullView Display technology), multi-touch functionality (i.e., not only click, but pinch and zoom), and support for up to 2K resolution.
The touchpad is multi-touch and works nicely with Windows precision drivers. The surface is plastic rather than glass, which may deter some users, but we found it quite acceptable. The touchpad itself is roughly as large as the area beneath the keyboard allows.
The entire impression is that this is a laptop developed by a brand specializing in mobile devices, which it undoubtedly is. However, part of a mobile smartphone firm producing laptops/notepads defines this product as what it is, namely ultraportable but quite capable. It almost seems trite to say, but if we were heading to a web café, coffee shop, or bar to do some surfing and work, this is the gadget we would grab. It has a metal body that weighs 1.49kg and measures 15.9mm thick.
