Huawei's MateBook X Pro has two USB-C ports — one with Thunderbolt 3 tech — that can handle connecting a compatible USB-C external monitor directly or an adapter for monitors that require other ports. If you're ready to set up a workstation for your Ultrabook, we've rounded up the best monitors available now.
This LG 27-inch 4K display has near-perfect sRGB color reproduction for a full image, and it has a 60 Hz refresh rate and a 5 ms response time for a smooth picture. Connect straight from your MateBook X Pro with a USB-C cable, and easily mount it on your wall with VESA compatibility.
Dell's UltraSharp line should never be ignored if you like thin monitors with almost no bezel, and this 27-inch option can connect straight back to your laptop with USB-C. It has a 2560x1440 resolution with a 5 ms response time, 60 Hz refresh rate, and the IPS panel allows for wide viewing angles.
Bigger 4K display
If 27 inches of 4K glory isn't enough, you can always upgrade to this 31.5-inch BenQ monitor. It has a competitive price while still offering HDR support, a 60 Hz refresh rate, a 4 ms response time, and excellent color reproduction. Best part? It's compatible with USB-C, so there's no need for an adapter or dock.
Having an extra display or two at home is one thing, but what about while traveling? The ASUS ZenScreen is a 15.6-inch portable touchscreen with 1920x1080 resolution and IPS panel that connects via USB-C. If you're itching to use a pen with your MateBook X Pro, know that this option comes with an active pen for inking.
With a 5 ms response time, 1920x1080 resolution, and IPS panel for wide viewing angles, this monitor offers a lot for $100. The bezel is just 2 mm thin, and you can connect with VGA or DVI ports, which unfortunately will require a dock or adapter for your MateBook X Pro.
If we're making a suggestion
All of the monitors listed above can indeed complement your Huawei MateBook X Pro, but if you're not sure where to start, we recommend checking out the 27-inch Dell U2719DC (opens in new tab) with 2560x1440 resolution. It's a great size for most people, but if you'd like something a bit larger, there's always the 31.5-inch BenQ EW3270U (opens in new tab) with stunning 4K resolution.
