Huawei matebook x experience: a good partner for mobile office

What kind of laptop can be called “extreme lightweight”? I believe that many readers think of the “kilogram book”, that is, those light notebooks weighing less than one kilogram. Recently, Huawei’s matebook x is such a “kilogram book” — it is just about one kilogram, and the thickest part is only 13.6mm. < / P > < p > the matebook X has been redesigned from the inside out to achieve an “ultra lightweight” fuselage. At the same time, compared with the past products, its design sense is “higher”. < / P > < p > from the above parameter configuration table, we can see that the color of this computer is very rich – not only frost silver, but also the fashionable colors of interstellar blue, indigo naturalis and cherry blossom pink, which are not common in notebook products. These colors are sprayed on the fuselage by multi-layer precision sand blasting process. < / P > < p > I got a matebook X in interstellar blue. Its fuselage is made of aviation grade magnesium aluminum alloy die cast by CNC process. The whole body is frosted. Only the “Huawei” logo on the a side of the fuselage is mirror polished. < / P > < p > turn to the D side, and you’ll find that there are no openings on the bottom except for a pair of speaker openings that are distributed on the left and right sides – unlike many notebook products that tend to design cooling holes at the bottom, the design of the bottom of the matebook x is very simple. If you tear off the sticker, the bottom is very elegant. < / P > < p > then, where is the cooling air inlet of matebook X “arranged”? Let’s put this question on for a moment. First, turn on the computer. Inside is a 13.3-inch screen with a very narrow frame. The screen is made of LTPS with a resolution of 3000 × 2000 pixels and supports 10 touch. Officials say the screen can cover 100% sRGB gamut with a maximum brightness of 400 nits. < / P > < p > although the matebook X has a wedge-shaped body design, and the thickest part is only 13.6mm, it still has a 1.3mm keyboard with scissors feet. Although the overall plane area of the fuselage is only A4 size, it still uses a full-size keyboard, and only the up and down arrow keys are compressed to one key size. < / P > < p > there is another mystery in the center of the first row of the keyboard – yes, it is a continuation of the previous generation of pop-up hidden camera design. Press to pop up the front camera. This design can not only ensure that the privacy can be protected when the user does not use the camera, but also make room for the B-side display screen and increase the proportion of the screen. < / P > < p > if you have to pick a bone from an egg, it’s the angle of shooting: because it’s shot from the bottom up, this angle is not very friendly for self shooting. Fortunately, the front camera of the computer is not a common function for most people. However, I still hope that there will be a better plan to “hide” the camera and shoot from a normal perspective. < / P > < p > the touch panel on the C-side also surprised me: on the one hand, it has a large enough touch area, which extends from a few millimeters below the space bar to the edge of the notebook; on the other hand, it feels very smooth, and in such a light and thin body, it can press without compromise. < / P > < p > this is all due to the introduction of Huawei free touch pressure touch panel design: a nonlinear motor is used to simulate the vibration feedback of the touch panel when pressing. This feedback force is adjustable, and you can also achieve different interaction modes by pressing different forces. < / P > < p > by the way, the microphone is designed on the side of the touchpad. Huawei calls this design “edge mic layout”, which has a wider pickup range and can interact with voice as far as five meters. Due to the thin body, the matebook x only retains two full-featured usb-c interfaces and a 3.5mm headphone interface. < / P > < p > this usb-c interface is not the lightning 3 standard, and the transmission speed is USB 3.0 standard. Therefore, users who want to connect external video card expansion dock, or want a usb-c cable to complete the expansion of the display screen, need to pay attention to. However, the two usb-c ports support the output of video signals, provided that the external display needs external power supply. < p > < p > Huawei has equipped matebook x with 65W charger and usb-c expansion dock. There is only one usb-c power supply port, one usb-a output transmission port and HDMI and VGA video signal output ports on the expansion dock. I can understand the meaning of it equipped with VGA video output port, after all, many projectors still use this output port. It’s just a pity that there are fewer usb-a interfaces and no SD card reader slot. < / P > < p > after a look around the machine, I wonder if your attentive readers have found that the matebook X has no reserved fan outlet. In most laptops, where the shaft of the air outlet is set, the matebook x is not perforated, but “sealed.”. < / P > < p > when I actually use a computer, even at full load, I’ve never heard a fan sound – yes, there’s no cooling fan inside the matebook X. It depends on the metal fuselage and large area of graphite shaft for heat dissipation. < p > < p > matebook x uses Intel’s 10th generation core i7-10510u processor, which adopts a four core and eight thread design, with the main frequency of 1.8GHz and the frequency of about 3.6ghz. The operating time of this peak frequency will not be too long, after all, it completely depends on the body’s own passive heat dissipation. < / P > < p > as a lightweight book, it needs to deal with the needs of mobile office, not heavy editing, or games, so in fact, the i7-10510u processor is enough for most scenarios. However, there is one thing that I don’t quite understand: Although matebook x is equipped with 16GB of running memory as standard, it is lpddr3 standard and the main frequency is only 2133mhz. < / P > < p > this can only be understood as sacrificing some performance and reducing the power consumption of the computer, so as to reduce the heat dissipation of the fuselage, so as to achieve the purpose of not reserving the cooling fan and reducing the thickness of the fuselage. Without the cooling fan, there is also an advantage, that is, when the computer is running, there is no noise. < / P > < p > for matebook x users who light office and “light entertainment”, we can not help but say that the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. In addition, it is worth mentioning that the matebook x uses high and low frequency division speakers, and the external amplifier performs well. < / P > < p > through my simple test of this CPU, I believe that readers have a certain understanding of the actual performance of this CPU. Readers who care about the user experience may ask another question: is it hot without the cooling fan? < / P > < p > in terms of my own practical use experience, it will not be “hot”, and its heat consumption is mainly concentrated at the shaft and the bottom of d-plane. There was no obvious sign of fever in the palm rest, keyboard, or even fingerprint identification. So if you type on the desk, your fingers and wrists don’t feel anything. < / P > < p > only when you use high load, for example, like the author, use the run score software for stress test, or open a dozen Web tags and several documents at a time, open the music software, and turn up the volume for external playback. It will have some heat at the bottom, and the heat is concentrated in the center of the bottom. < p > < p > matebook x uses a 3K resolution screen that supports 10 touch points. Although you may not be used to using touch in desktop operating system for interaction, this touch screen can exist more than that. Matebook x supports the interconnection between Huawei terminals. < / P > < p > if you have a Huawei mobile phone, turn on the NFC, Bluetooth and WLAN switches of the mobile phone, and gently paste it to the position of the touch panel to complete the transmission of documents / pictures / videos and other files. In addition to being able to transfer files, it can also transfer and read the clipboard on your phone – for example, if you copy a piece of text on your phone, you can paste it directly on your computer. < / P > < p > in addition to sharing files, Huawei’s unique “multi screen collaboration” is the big killer. Connect to the phone via Bluetooth and wireless network, and a screen will appear on the matebook X. In fact, this is equivalent to “mapping” a mobile phone screen to a computer screen. < / P > < p > you can interact with a mobile phone through a computer screen, or even steal a red envelope through a computer – this is also a new feature of this generation of “multi screen collaboration”. What we can do through multi screen collaboration is not just to grab red packets. As long as your mobile phone is connected to the computer, you can directly drag the material in the phone to the computer through the computer. < / P > < p > for example, you can drag and drop photos / videos from your mobile phone library to your computer to browse / save them. You have received a document on the wechat of your mobile phone. As long as you download it, you can continue browsing / saving on the computer. You don’t have to switch back and forth between two screens any more – just connect your computer to your phone, and one computer will do. < / P > < p > at the same time, Huawei computer manager also provides one key hot spot, intelligent photo album management, one button screen recording and other quick functions. In fact, the realization of these functions may be due to one or two computer software problems, but Huawei has brought this experience to the level of software and hardware integration through the linkage of mobile phones and computers. < p > < p > after four years of exploration in the PC industry, Huawei has applied its product experience in the mobile phone industry to notebook products, and has designed such highly integrated and lightweight products. < / P > < p > compared with traditional PC manufacturers, it also breaks through the “wall” between mobile devices and computers, enabling users to experience the convenience of “multi screen collaboration” through cloud services. The supporting services of this ecosystem can also help Huawei attract more users to use Huawei’s products and enhance their brand loyalty. Straight screen S20!
