Much the same as Huawei’s MateBook X Pro, the MateBook 13 looks so much like a MacBook – with its controlled, moderate structure – that it could be effectively confused with one, were it not for the gleaming Huawei logo on the best. We tried the Space Gray rendition of the MateBook 13 (which likewise arrives in a tint Huawei calls Mystic Silver), which is a rich shading.
Weighing 2.9 pounds and estimating 11.3 x 8.3 x 0.6 inches thick, the MateBook 13 is like the Huawei MateBook X Pro (2.9 pounds, 12 x 8.5 x 0.6 inches), which fits a bigger 13.9-inch screen inside its edge.

The MacBook Air highlights double Thunderbolt 3 ports, while the MateBook X Pro has one Thunderbolt 3 port and a customary USB 3.0 port, so your more established gadgets don’t require a dongle. The Dell XPS 13 additionally has double Thunderbolt 3 ports, in addition to a SD memory peruser.
The 13-inch, 2K screen in the Huawei MateBook 13 offers strong shading propagation, however could remain to be somewhat more brilliant. Viewing the John Wick Chapter 3 trailer, I saw inky-dark shadows in the passageways Keanu Reeves races around, rich, soaked green lighting in a bank heist scene and dynamic, resplendent golds in an inn entryway.

The Huawei MateBook 13 packs a huge amount of speed, on account of its eighth Gen Core i7-8565U processor and 8GB of RAM. When I split my screen between a 4K scene of the Binging with Babish cooking arrangement on YouTube and twelve Chrome tabs (counting Gmail, Giphy and the Google Doc of this audit), I saw no log jam or stammer as I composed, looked over and viewed.
On the Geekbench 4 general execution test, the MateBook 13 earned a high 17,136, jumping over the 13,058 premium workstation normal, the 13,769 from the MateBook X Pro (Core i7-8550U with 16GB of RAM), the 7,871 from the MacBook Air (Intel Core i5-8210Y with 8GB of RAM) and the 14,936 from the XPS 13 (Core i7-8565U processor with 16GB oThe 512GB NVMe SSD in the MateBook 13 duplicated 4.7GB of media records in 8 seconds, for a blisteringly quick speed of 636 MBps, which tidies the 526.92 MBps class normal.

Our trial of the MateBook 13 demonstrate that Huawei packs a major punch into this present note pad’s little edge, – on account of the Core i7 processor and Nvidia MX 150 illustrations – over a beautiful screen and strong sound and an agreeable console. In the event that just its battery could back that up, we’d state this machine is an extraordinary alternative for everybody.
For longer perseverance, look at a comparably spec’d 4K Dell XPS 13, however it will cost you about $500 more – or $300 in case you’re willing to make due with a 1080p screen, which will get you significantly more battery life.
