I’ll be travelling light from now on.
My sweeties, today, I’m gonna tell you about my old and my new laptop and how big the difference between those two is. My old baby was a white MacBook from 2009, basically from the stone ages. Merely a 20 min battery time before it needed to be charged again, super low performance these days and not even a good display added to the fact that I could hardly take this beast travelling with me as it weighs about 3 kilos! Super heavy, oh my…
So yes, basically, it was time for a new companion, best lightweight, high performance, super slim and a great battery life. But I wasn’t sure I could find a perfect notebook like that anywhere…
Still, I had heard of the new MateBook X very recently and so I went to ask HUAWEI whether I could test it at home for a while. Obviously, it makes sense to test it before you actually decide to go for it. Also, I wasn’t sure whether I’d enjoy working on Windows 10. Anyway, that much I can tell you straight away: Windows 10 is no problem at all and working on Windows in general reminds me of the time back when I was a kid and we had Windows 98 on our first computer, hehe.
Now, that I’ve had the chance to use the HUAWEI MateBook X* for a while, I never wanna give it away again. It doesn’t even compare to my old laptop in any way. Especially important for me as a travelling person are, of course, the lightweight aspect and the performance as well as battery life. And the MateBook X incorporates all of these aspects perfectly, making it the ideal computer for me to carry around on all of my travels.
Truly, performance is great on the MateBook X and no comparison to my old MacBook from the middle ages. It works fast thanks to a strong performing Intel Core-i5 processor of the 7th generation. The weight of the MateBook X is almost as light as a feather (1,05 kg), it is ultra thin (12,5mm) and the battery lasts up to 10 hours!
Wait, what…? 10 hours in comparison to 20 minutes battery life on my old device? Why didn’t I think of changing earlier? Oh yes, the MateBook X by HUAWEI is pretty new on the market and really a little bit revolutionary.
For my two main working aspects, namely writing texts and editing pictures at home and on the road, the MateBook X is perfect. Thanks to a bright, clear display, I can see much better and naturally have a better body position while working. My back will thank me for this one day.
And here is some more information for those who want to know: the display has a resolution of 2K, more precisely a 13,3 inch IPS-display with 2.160 x 1.440 pixels. It has a display ratio of 3:2, which is a bit unusual, but the main advantage is, that it basically has the dimensions of a 13-inch-notebook, but the display surface much rather has the dimensions of a 14-inch-notebooks i 16:9-format.
Anyway, I am really enjoying the MateBook X and am looking forward to many more productive hours with this device!
Did you hear of the HUAWEI MateBook X yet? What do you think about this new notebook? I am really looking forward to your comments!
