Why buy a MateBook 13?

The Huawei MateBook 13 is a thin and light laptop that sits between Huawei's impressive MateBook X and MateBook X Pro devices. The MateBook 13 has the latest "Whiskey Lake" 8th generation Intel processors. These processors are U-series as well, which are more powerful than the Y-series processors used in some Apple devices that compete with the MateBook 13. If you opt for the Core i7 version of the device you can also have an integrated MX150 for graphics. The internals of the MateBook 13 make it one of the most powerful 13 inch laptops available.

In addition to impressive internals, the laptop also has an amazing outside. The 2K screen has a 3:2 aspect ratio which makes it feel quite roomy despite the fact that it's only a 13 inch screen. It has good color accuracy and also supports touch, though it doesn't support inking or pens.

The body of the MateBook 13 is less impressive visually, featuring a space gray design with little flair, but it's sturdy and well built.

In our full review of the device, we gave the Matebook 13 a 4.5 out of 5 thanks to its excellent performance, beautiful touch screen display, and impressive value for its price. So if you're looking for a PC alternative to the MacBook, you should definitely start here.
