For better and worse, the MateBook X Pro hasn't changed a lot since Huawei released the original model in 2018. It's still a great laptop, provided you can put up with its quirks.

Above all, only at a retail price of S$1,598, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 is certainly one of the most affordable notebooks in its class. It brings great value to consumers, and I’m quite sure that it will be a straightforward choice for many seeking for a thin and light, yet powerful notebook.

Of course, it is by no means perfect. Two USB-C ports is a little stingy and the fact that it doesn’t support Thunderbolt 3 and only one of them supports power charging compounds the problem. There’s also no microSD card reader so a USB-C adapter is likely going to be the first accessory every MateBook 13 owner buys. The lack of Wi-Fi 6 support isn’t a big deal especially if you don’t have a Wi-Fi 6 router at home, but it is puzzling especially since nearly every other Windows notebook released this year supports it. It also gets quite hot when you are gaming.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
