A team that thinks about the versatility
With an ultrabook and convertibles that increasingly lose more ports in an attempt to be more and more thin and light, MateBook is the counterpoint, a laptop that prefers to bet on versatility. That’s why the collection of ports, which includes the power input, a 3.5 mm jack for headphones, two USB 3.0 and another USB 2.0.

The price to pay is in the dimensions, which rise to 16.9 mm thick, and 358 mm × 239 mm body. The weight is also considerable with 1.9 kilograms, which makes him a device a little less “portable”, although with more possibilities for work and multimedia consumption than its two brothers.
According to Huawei told us in his press release, they are going to be commercialized three different versions. All will play with Intel Core i5 processors, 8GB of RAM and storage configurations ranging from 1TB HDD to a 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD. However, other markets can also come with versions with 4 GB of RAM and 500 GB of HDD.
The team has an integrated HD Graphics 620, but will be accompanied by a nVidia 940 MX graphics. This should allow us a greater entertainment possibilities, and we will also have a battery of 43.3 Wh (3800 mAh), although in the note Huawei has not dared to speak of autonomy. What it does say is that it will also include a Dolby ATMOS Sound System sound system, and an almost anecdotal one-megapixel webcam.
