The NVIDIA MX250 is outdated nowadays (since it is practically a MX150). Better to wait for the new Amd 7nm laptop cpu's if you want an ok (i)gpu in a 2-1 or ultrabook.
...unless you want this hardware/design. The new AMD chips look great, but let's be honest: there isn't huge announced lineup yet for premium Ultrabooks that feature the 4000 series.
How are they still allowed to make these with Intel chips?
yeah, and windows
Certain US companies are not allowed to sell technology to Huawei. Microsoft (since November) and Intel are granted exceptions by the US. The "fight" against Huawei with the US gov't is mostly on 5G, then phones, not PCs.
No mention of the problems with this company and the US government ban on them? Or a mention of how they might be sourcing these CPUs and OS license?
You're confusing a lot of stuff... The ban applies to US companies who can sell Huawei technology. Not a ban on selling Huawei goods to people. There are 90 day exceptions to that ban with Microsoft and Intel being a part of it. Microsoft was granted an indefinite ability to sell Windows to Huawei as it is "mass market software". This happened in November. Most of the fight/concern with Huawei is 5G, followed by phones. Their PC business has never been a foucs of the US gov't complaints.
