Huawei matebookx: you can pick it up with two fingers and grab the work of the tablet

I have used several lightweight books of different brands before, such as Apple’s MacBook, Dell’s xps13, ThinkPad’s x280, and Microsoft’s surface. As a person who often goes on business with a computer on his back, I have a high opinion of these tools, which not only reduce the burden but also have high productivity. < p > < p > it is not a day or two for Huawei to enter the notebook market. This manufacturer, which was originally famous for making mobile phones, became the second largest notebook brand in China last year, after Lenovo. < / P > < p > in the past few years, Huawei has gradually enriched the number of matebook products, and has also made clear product route differentiation according to different product characteristics, such as matebook x pro of business flagship route, matebook e of two in one form and mate book of mass consumption route. With the gradual growth of Huawei mobile phones in recent years, Huawei computers have also grown rapidly. Therefore, when we see Huawei’s computer ranking second in China, we should know that the reason why Huawei computer ranks second in China is not just because it is a computer. < p > < p > the matebook x is a product of Huawei that focuses on the light and thin line, and its target is Apple’s MacBook Air. The series was launched in Berlin in 2017. The update after three years can be said to be a big update. Whether in terms of hardware or software, this new matebook X has a lot of changes. < / P > < p > since the first generation of matebook X in 2017, this series of computers have been known for their light weight and small size. The weight of the computer is only 1kg, and the length and width of the fuselage are smaller than that of A4 paper. Therefore, it also has the slogan of “smaller than A4 paper”. < / P > < p > in the latest generation of matebook x, Huawei continues to control the fuselage width and length at 20.6cm and 28.4cm, which is a small circle smaller than A4 paper. If I put my palm on it, it will be only a few centimeters larger than my two palms. < p > < p > this size of computer is particularly friendly for people like me who are “legs are platforms.”. With legs folded up and right angle support, the computer can start to work easily. Compared with the two in one computer or tablet computer, the traditional form of laptop has a harder supporting surface, so typing on the plane of the thigh, the armrest of a public seat, and the small table board can not fully support the computer, so the experience will be much more stable. < / P > < p > from the side view, we can see that the D side and the side of the computer are wedge-shaped. I have no special tool to measure the thinnest part, but the thickest part is 1.36cm according to the official knowledge of Huawei, which is about half the thickness of my P40 pro. < / P > < p > although it is much thicker than the mobile phone, the thickness of the matebook x is still thinner than that of the same kind of notebook. For comparison, I specially found the data of MacBook Air and LG gram 14. The thickest parts of these two computers are 1.6cm and 1.5cm respectively. < / P > < p > limited by the thickness of the wedge-shaped fuselage, the interface of matebook x is a usb-c on the left and one on the right, which is not too much for me. It is just a sufficient configuration. If I charge and connect the external projection screen at the same time according to my usual usage habits, when I need to connect the external hard disk to guide the photos, one of the interfaces must be free to connect to the hard disk. < / P > < p > fortunately, Huawei comes with a matedock 2 attached to the box, which can split the HDMI images and divide a USB interface. The speed may have a little impact, but at least it can use more external devices at the same time. < / P > < p > because the ACD surface of the computer uses the technology similar to candy spraying and skin like, when I first started to use the computer, people and I almost thought that at least one side of the computer was made of plastic. However, it is not. In fact, the computer body is made of magnesium aluminum alloy. Most of the fuselage is cut and molded by CNC, but the surface is processed. It is easy to mistake it as non-metallic. < / P > < p > and the matebook x I evaluated this time is “Cherry Blossom powder”. The combination of A-side polishing and C-side matte is a bit of macaroni flavor. Girls may like it, but straight men may not be able to hold it. If you want to keep a low profile, you can choose “Indigo” and “interstellar blue”. These two colors will be more mature and reserved. < p > < p > in recent years, notebook manufacturers have been trying different fuselage technologies and materials, including magnesium aluminum alloy, carbon fiber and new plastics. The purpose is to make the computer structure simple and reliable, and reduce the unnecessary burden of the body materials. However, at present, it is still metal that can have the characteristics of mature technology, appropriate cost, strong hardness, good heat dissipation capacity and light weight. Therefore, most thin computers are mainly made of metal, and at the same time, the weight of metal mold will be reduced to the lightest through different cutting processes. < / P > < p > as I mentioned earlier, matebook X has wedge-shaped design elements. In fact, in addition to allowing the computer to have a visual transition from thick to thin, it is also to reduce the excess weight brought by metal materials. < / P > < p > 1kg, which is about the weight of 5-6 mobile phones, is only about 10g heavier than LG gram, which is known as “one of the lightest laptops in the world”, but lighter than the 12.9-inch iPad pro with a smart keyboard. < / P > < p > in view of the fact that I have previously tested the 12.9-inch iPad pro, which is fully equipped with a stylus and keyboard, can be easily carried out in a one shoulder bag. < p > < p > the matebook x, which weighs one yard less, naturally allows me to take out my computer manuscript writing, typesetting and PPT from my Tote Bag whenever I go shopping on weekends. < p > < p > matebook x uses a 13.3-inch screen. According to Huawei, this screen is the first notebook computer screen designed by Huawei with a “floating full screen”. The screen is slightly higher than the B-side border, rather than integrated with the B-side. Therefore, it further reduces the border width around the screen and increases the proportion of the screen part in the B-side. < / P > < p > in 2017, the proportion of the first generation of matebook x screens was 88%, while this year’s new models, the proportion of screens increased to 90%, which is the proportion of screens that most mobile phones are making, and also the goal of most notebook computers. < / P > < p > as for the screen display part, this screen also has a resolution of 3K level, and the ratio is still the consistent 3:2 ratio of matebook. I think this ratio can be used for viewing web pages and offices, and the display space can be better utilized, also known as “productivity ratio”. < / P > < p > the screen supports sRGB 100% gamut in terms of color, which can be basically satisfied by using this screen for daily basic color matching and drawing revision. However, professional photography users personally suggest to choose matebook x pro or external professional display. On the one hand, it has better image correction performance, on the other hand, the screen display effect is more friendly to the users in the later stage of professional images. < / P > < p > by the way, this screen can also support multi touch. Maybe many people wonder why more and more computers will do touch screen now. In fact, notebook users are closely related to the expansion of computer functions. < / P > < p > although we rarely use touch screens on computers, I wish I could sign and send electronic documents directly in the face of electronic document signing and picture zooming and shrinking, so as to save the trouble of switching between devices. < / P > < p > in the face of these needs, notebook can provide touch screen, which can save a lot of time and cost of switching devices, but I personally suggest that when using the touch screen, try to use a stylus instead of a finger. < p > < p > generally speaking, Huawei matebook series will support “Huawei share” based on NFC, and this function will be labeled with an obvious logo at the position of the C-side handle. However, I didn’t see this label on matebook x, which made me mistakenly think that computers do not support NFC. < / P > < p > but the fact is that Huawei has used “free touch” for the first time on a computer. In essence, this is an improved design for the touch panel. The touch panel can make different interactive feedback according to the pressure of the fingers. < / P > < p > the answer is hidden behind the touchpad, which is about the middle of the touchpad cross. If it’s a P40 pro, it can be activated by placing the phone on the left of the touch panel. Other Huawei phones may have different NFC positions and need to adjust the touch position. But I believe this is a skill that makes perfect by practice. As long as you use it more, you can be familiar with blind operation. < / P > < p > one of the less noticeable details of the touchpad is that the bottom border is cancelled, and the bottom of the touchpad extends directly to the edge of the C-plane. In theory, this is a way to increase the area of the touch panel without affecting the size of the fuselage. < / P > < p > but in fact, the first generation of matebook X’s touchpad border is already very narrow, so I think that in addition to considering the area, the NFC built-in touchpad also has the factor that the mobile phone will not be pushed up by the border because it is flat on the touchpad, thus increasing the contact area between the two devices and improving the efficiency of pairing. < / P > < p > there are not many things to say about the keyboard. In addition to upgrading to 1.33mm scissor foot keyboard and adding automatic backlight adjustment, the keyboard is still the familiar full-size keyboard. The feedback of keyboard feel is obvious under high key range, and the handle of key cap will not be loose, and the overall performance is solid. However, due to the thickness limitation of the body, the feel of this keyboard can not be said to be the best among all notebook keyboards, but it can be said to be a better one of its kind. Computer has the final say in mind. < / P > < p > in addition to the keyboard light, there are 4 speakers with 2 high and 2 low under the keyboard. However, the sound is not all separated from the special opening, but played through the side opening and keyboard slot. This is the first time Huawei has used a keyboard voice design in matebook, which reduces tile area by stacking vertically. < / P > < p > the stereo performance of the speaker is very strong, and the sound will not be reduced because it is made in the keyboard gap. The maximum volume is not inferior to other thin books with independent speaker area. Sitting in front of the computer, you can feel the sound coming out from both sides of the computer and the front keyboard and shaft. < / P > < p > for the first time, people who use this computer for the first time may be curious about where the sound comes from, because the cracks in the upper half of the keyboard are “oozing” sound. In fact, it is the position closest to the tweeter, and natural sound is also emitted from there. < p > < p > in terms of sound quality, the analytical power of human voice and treble is clear and not fuzzy, but the lower potential of bass gives people the feeling that it can be stronger. Although the bass performance is good now, it also gives people a feeling that there is still much to be done. < p > < p > this time, the entire matebook X system uses Intel’s 10th generation core processor. According to different user and consumer groups, it is divided into i7-10510u and i5-10210u. < / P > < p > this time, the i7-10510u processor with 16GB of memory and 512gb SSD is evaluated. In terms of paper parameters, this set of configuration is the more common configuration in the current lightweight book, and it is also one of the higher configurations. < / P > < p > the background and performance of i7-10510u have been mentioned in previous articles
