Review of Huawei’s new Matebook X Pro laptop, refreshed for 2020 boasting 10th-gen Intel smarts and impressive specs despite the ultraportable design. This super-skinny and light notebook would be perfect for students with its creative chops and ultrabook style, but there’s one factor that could hold it back. The high asking price, which hits £1699 in the UK.
Still, while the Matebook X Pro 2020 ain’t cheap, you get a lot of clever tech for that cash. Gaming is even possible if you don’t try anything too demanding, while photo and light video editing are handled ably by Huawei’s laptop.
That gorgeous near-14-inch display is also one of the best around, with a sharp 3000×2000 pixel resolution and accurate colour reproduction. Ideal for creative work or kicking back with some Netflix.
The rest of the specs are solid too, from the 1TB SSD to the stereo speaker setup. So if you’ve got cash in the bank and you’re after one of the greatest super-portable laptops of 2020, job done.
