The newest addition to the company’s rising lineup of laptop devices is the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 AMD. The tech company has been actively etching its mark on the mobile battlefield for years. Now, Huawei has set its sights on the market for portable computing more than ever. Let’s see what he’s got to say.
Models of the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 have an Intel Core-i5 or Core-i7 10th gen quad-core. Now the fray has been entered by a Ryzen-powered version that makes things more exciting. Users can choose between having a Ryzen 5 4600H six-core or a Ryzen 7 4800H eight-core. The memory options can be either 8 GB or 16 GB DDR4 2666 MHz RAM, while either 256 GB or 512 GB are included in the storage options (PCIe NVMe SSD).
It has an impressive metal body with multiple communication ports and a bright touchscreen display. On the left side of the unit, along with a 3.5mm headphone and microphone combination jack, you can find a USB-C port that supports 65W charging. It is also possible to find an HDMI port on the same side. On the right side of the laptop, two full-size USB-A ports are also found.
A 14-inch, 2160x1440px IPS LCD touchscreen display is available for the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 AMD. There is a 3:2 aspect ratio on the screen, too. This means that the MateBook 14’s screen is 8 percent wider compared to other 14-inch laptops with a 16:9 screen. Since the panel is almost edge to edge, the monitor achieves a screen to body ratio of nearly 90 percent.
There’s a large 56Wh battery as well. And the cost? Let’s just say it really is worth considering the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 AMD.
This laptop is light and small. It’s the ideal gadget that you can conveniently bring inside your bag at just 1.49kg without adding significant weight or taking up storage space. It only comes in a single Space Gray colorway at present, but we hope Huawei will decide to give other color choices later on.
There are two speakers in the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 AMD (each rated at 2 watts). In particular, when we realize that most modern laptops have the same speaker specs, they do the job perfectly. However, the only catch is that they are bottom-firing speakers so that they can not give the listening experience “in-your-face.” But then again who plays noisy media files when you can only use a pair of earbuds or a portable speaker on their laptops?
A full-sized keyboard that extends through the entire width of the laptop comes with the MateBook. Compared to the MagicBook 14 keyboard, the keys have much more movement and are more stable. Looking at the F row closely, you’ll find that there’s also a 720p camera hidden under the center-most button. The power button on the keyboard’s top right also serves as a fingerprint reader for added security.
The Huawei MateBook 14 2020 AMD comes fitted with a 6-core Ryzen 5 4600H with 8/256GB memory and the flagship Ryzen 7 4800H combined with 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD.
