Your laptop is an investment. During the pandemic, we discovered how truly reliant we were on our laptops when it had to be our office, our educational institution, our connection to our families and friends, and many times, our haven.  

Chinese tech giant, HUAWEI has created a laptop that can do all this and more. The new MateBook X Pro 2020 has been described as a “borderless experience.” It is a laptop that transcends what you usually get from an ordinary computer.  

Here are five ways the MateBook X Pro 2020 is the ultimate laptop that you need to finesse 2021:

1. The size of the screen is perfect for viewing documents 

The MateBook X Pro has a 91% screen-to-body ratio with 3K FullView Display which makes everything clear, crisp and easy to read. The 100% sRGB wide colour gamut also makes viewing of images, videos and gaming more vibrant and realistic.

2. It is so elegant and sleek, you would want to take it with to a dinner party 

It comes in the stylish colour of Mystic Silver which can transition easily from work to play. The CNC diamond cutting and sandblast finishing makes it look sophisticated and clean. Also, you don’t have to worry about carrying around a bulky computer, the MateBook X Pro is only 14.6mm thin and 1.33kg light, which makes it easy to carry around, wherever the day might take you.  

3. It works simultaneously with your other Huawei devices 

You know, when you working on something on your phone and you want to continue it on your laptop? Or vice versa? Now, with Huawei Share, it is possible. You don’t even need an internet connection. With a simple tap, your phone screen will appear on your laptop screen. You can drag and drop files, images, or even words between the two devices. You can also perform functions on your phone straight from your laptop. Carrying around multiple chargers is also a thing of the past as the MateBook X Pro comes equipped with 65W pocket charger that works for Huawei notebooks, tablets and mobile phones that support a USB-C interface.  

4. The specs under the hood are just as impressive 

If you want to know technically why this laptop is a good purchase, we have those details too. The MateBook X Pro comes with a 10th Gen Itel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 discrete graphics, as well as up to 16GB of memory and up to 1TB of fast SSD storage. This allows you to load images faster and coupled with an upgraded high-speed Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0, you will have a smoother, uninterrupted gaming experience. It also has a 56Wh battery which gives you up to 11 hours of web browsing, 13 hours of video playback and 15 hours of normal work with just one charge.  

5. It’s all about the touch 

The MateBook X Pro comes fully equipped with a sensitive touch screen. It allows you to scroll, zoom and select with just the touch of your finger. It’s now easier than ever to drag and drop items. You can even swipe down with three fingers to take a screenshot. No effort required.  

The Matebook X Pro will launch in South Africa on 1 December 2020 and will cost you R34 999. It will be available for presale on Huawei Online. You can also buy your it at Incredible Connection or Computer Mania.
