The new Huawei MateBook 14 continues to outshine Apple’s MacBooks

The MateBook has long been a favourite of mine, sporting an ultra-slim design, solid internals and a future-thinking focus on its feature set for an affordable price. What started as a MacBook clone has long surpassed it and continues to do so in Huawei’s 2020 edition of the MateBook 14.

Whilst not as lightweight as Huawei’s MateBook X, the prosumer MateBook 14 is designed for “productivity on the go”. Decked out the MateBook 14 contains:

  • 10th-gen Intel Core i7 CPU
  • 16GB RAM
  • 512GB PCIe SSD
  • 14″ 2160 x 1440, 185 PPI “FullView” display with touch
  • NVIDIA GeForce MX350 2GB GPU

A 56Wh battery ensures the laptop remains useable for those long, lockdown, working-from-home days, but at the same time continues to hide away it’s camera under a flip-up function key that offers a unique “up-the-schnoz” viewing angle workmates may not enjoy.

Available immediate the Huawei MateBook 14 has an RRP of A$2,499.
