Huawei's laptop range in Singapore debuts a cheaper starting price than the average pack

Huawei's laptop range in Singapore debuts a cheaper starting price than the average pack

Beyond smartphones

When it comes to the mobile devices we're tethered to, we want it all: A generous storage space, speed (ever screamed at an unresponsive loading page?), long battery life, aesthetics and preferably something that won't make too much of a dent in our wallets. To that demand, tech giants never cease to quit competing with more releases — like Huawei's laptop drops that have finally made their way to Singapore. 

Yes, the China tech manufacturer is moving beyond its snazzy Leica-built smartphones — and into the sturdy realm of laptops. Here's the lowdown: 

The Huawei MateBook 13 and the Huawei MateBook X Pro

These state-of-the-art notebooks from Huawei combine portability with convenience, speed with good looks, and productivity with entertainment. Huawei's latest release is the MateBook 13, and its new entry into the market hasn't stopped it from getting rave reviews from consumers everywhere. On the other end, the 2019 release of the MateBook X Pro had big shoes to fill since its predecessor was widely loved. Expected to have better performance with its high-powered processors, this laptop will deliver faster Wi-Fi speeds than even the MacBook Pro.

The differences

Between the two, the Huawei MateBook X Pro is slightly bigger with its 14-inch body as compared to the MateBook 13's, which, as its name suggests, is at 13 inches. The MateBook X Pro also has an Ultra FullView display with 3K resolution, so if you really like seeing the pores of your favourite movie characters, the MateBook 13 may be less detailed with its 2K display.

What's cool about them

The new Singapore-bound laptops of Huawei may be more visually productive with their unconventional 3:2 display, which is unlike the usual 16:9 displays of most laptops around today. Nevertheless, we love that they haven't compromised keeping up a compact design for easy mobility and yet offer more screen space so we can do our work more comfortably. Indeed, eye strain is a thing. 

They're also both built on powerful i7/i5 processors and a strong GPU that guarantees a smooth experience editing pictures or videos. For non-creatives, think high-quality streaming while on a Netflix binge. Yas.

Why should we care?

The best part about these laptops is that they've managed to keep prices lower than an average Macbook — the latter has a starting price that's at least $500 more than a Huawei laptop. Now, that's something to think about.
