Reviews for the Huawei MateBook D 14-53012BMY
The Huawei MateBook D14 was released in 2020, but it is still the current budget MateBook model sold today. Unfortunately, while $ was probably a reasonable asking price when it launched, the 10th generation Intel Core i5-10210U CPU that powers it isn’t far off being lapped twice by new processors. Walk into any major retailer and you’ll be able to get a laptop with an equivalent 11th Gen processor for the same price and we’ve even seen comparable devices with i7-1165G7 CPUs go for hundreds of dollars less. The MateBook D14 was on sale at the time of writing-knocking $ off the asking price – but even then, they’re still not overly competitive. Two years of processor updates is a major sacrifice when you consider you’ll probably only use this device for five or six years at most, so they really need to be on a $ discount to be even worth considering.
