And this year, Huawei is back with Huawei Matebook 13 which offers specification between the ultra-slim Matebook X and the pocket-friendly Matebook D.

MateBook 13

With Matebook 13’s premium Aluminum alloy and metal unibody finish, Intel Whiskey lake processor and thin bezel display, it can be clearly observed as a competitor for the Apple’s new 2018 MacBook Air. The release took place at CES 2019. Let’s have a closer look at the details of Matebook 13.

Starting with the display, it has 13-inch 3:2 touchscreen display which is super sharp with 2,160 x 1,440 resolution. Display provides rich colors with ample viewing angles. Taking a look towards the bezels, company says they are 4.4mm thin providing 88 percent screen to body ratio which is 6 percent more than the rivals MacBook Air with 82 percent screen to body ratio.

Moving to the keyboard, Matebook 13 offers a bigger touchpad than usual which will help you with better space and provide the rich user experience. Matebook 13 comes with an edge-to-edge comfortable keyboard with a 1.2mm travel between each key which is efficient to provide smooth and fast typos which makes it a thumbs up for those who hate Macbook Air’s low-travel keyboard although it is also pretty good. The keycaps barely come out and are not too loud or clicky. It has embedded fingerprint sensor on the power button which makes it easier to wake the computer up by just scanning the finger. With fingerprint sensors come to the security and to enhance it, Huawei has provided an independent security chip for storing the biometrics.

Huawei Matebook 13

Let’s have a look over the heart of the machine. The Matebook 13 is very capable machine in terms of processing. The device will have two configurations in the US. The higher-end version packs in eight-generation Intel Core i7-8565U chipset coupled with NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics card, on the other hand, low-end version ships with Intel Core i5 and Intel’s UHD620 graphics. Both the versions of Matebook 13 will have 8GB of RAM which will be standard considering the price range. The Matebook 13 having quad-core will be having a good multitasking ability which will be a serious upgrade than the MacBook Air which includes a dual-core processor.

Although providing the great performance the weight and thickness of the device matters a lot. The Matebook 13 comes with a 14.9mm thickness which company says is 6 percent thinner than the 2k18 MacBook Air which has 15.9mm thickness. Although the Matebook 13 is thinner than the MacBook Air, it weighs 2.82 pounds which is heavier than the 2.75 pounds MacBook Air.

The Matebook 13 has squeezed a lot of powerful chipsets in such a small device which they mention is due to Shark Fin 2.0 thermal setup which has the capability to handle 8,000 rpm without overheating the device. Huawei has provided dual fan system placing them between the CPU and GPU which enables to separate the heat and also accomplish 25 percent higher volume than a traditional fan. The company also says that cooling system uses an “intelligent filtering solution” which is claimed to manage performance and reduce the fan noise.

Huawei also praised the Shark Fin 2.0 setup for helping them to dedicate almost 50 percent of the laptops underhood space to embed massive 42Whr battery but it is bit smaller as compared to the 57Whr battery of Macbook Air. According to the Huawei’s claim, the low-end version, which is Core i5 Matebook 13, will last up to 10 hours while playing a 1080p video which will be great if it is able to hold on its words.

But Huawei has included a dock which places in USB – A port, USB-C port, VGA and HDMI port as well. Webcams are important for the video conferences and to help with it, the Matebook 13 houses a one-megapixel camera into its bezel, which makes it at a better place as compared to Matebook X Pro which hid the webcam under one of the keys in the keyboard.

With a webcam you also need good speakers to make the video conferences lively and to do so, the Matebook 13 has two speakers docked into the keyboard with Dolby support giving out the crisp and clear sound.

Huawei also provides a 65W USB-C power adapter which can be used for fact charging the laptop. The Matebook 13 is claimed to provide 2.5 hours of “office work” which may include working with spreadsheets, emails, internet surfing etc. when charged for 15 minutes.
