A Detailed Review Of The Huawei MateBook X Pro (2020) Laptop

HUAWEI MATEBOOK X PRO (2020) – Here is a thorough and detailed evaluation of the Huawei MateBook X Pro (2020), highlighting its positive aspects as well as its drawbacks.

Huawei’s 2020 MateBook X Pro enhances its advanced and well-equipped laptop while maintaining a few notable drawbacks. The laptop delivers respectable specifications, featuring a striking display, robust audio capabilities, and seamless integration with Huawei smartphones, all wrapped in an elegant, minimalist design.

Nevertheless, it falls short in terms of consistent performance in benchmark tests and stress trials. Additionally, it’s important to note that this laptop is not available in the United States due to ongoing disputes with the U.S. government.

In this review of the MateBook X Pro (2020), we’ll highlight its primary suitability as a business device, although it can also serve for occasional entertainment. Its true potential shines when paired with a Huawei phone. Nonetheless, even when considered independently, this is a solid laptop that offers considerable value by default and certainly justifies its price if you can acquire one.

The base MateBook X Pro, equipped with an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage, is priced at £1,199 ($1,517 converted). Meanwhile, the i7 version, which includes 1TB of storage, is available for £1,699 ($2,150 converted).


Base price: £1,399
CPU: 10th-gen Intel Core i5 or i7
Storage: 512GB/1TB SSD
GPU: Nvidia GeForce MX250
Display: 13.9-inch 3000 x 2000
Battery: 56Wh, 65W charging
Size: 11.9 x 8.5 x 0.57 inches (304 x 217 x 14.6 mm)
Weight: 2.9 pounds (1.33kg)

Externally, Huawei has maintained its signature minimalist design, featuring clean lines and rounded corners. In this regard, it bears a closer resemblance to a MacBook, differing notably from the XPS 13, which has a distinct narrowing bottom half and squared-off corners.

On the inside, you’ll find a standard chiclet keyboard, a compact trackpad that mimics the laptop’s exterior shape, a circular power button located at the upper right corner of the base, and stereo speakers positioned beside the keyboard.

Being a mid-sized 14-inch laptop, Huawei’s offering strikes a balance between size and portability. This does result in slightly larger dimensions in terms of width and height when compared to competitors. However, when placed side by side with a 13-inch MacBook Air/Pro or an XPS 13, the differences are hardly noticeable.

Weighing in at 2.9 pounds, it is a tad heavier than any version of the XPS 13, slightly more substantial than the MacBook Air, and slightly lighter than the MacBook Pro. Nevertheless, these variations are so minor that they should not deter individuals who prioritize having an exceptionally lightweight laptop.
