Reviews for the Huawei MateBook D, AMD Edition

85% Huawei MateBook D review: AMD Ryzen performance for $629
Source: Neowin English
When people ask me what laptop they should buy, my first question is how much they're looking to spend, right before I ask what they're looking to do with it. Once I clear away the frankly terrible misconception that these people can get a good laptop for $200, I can get them to around $500 or $600, and that makes the Huawei MateBook D very easy to recommend.

Huawei MateBook D Review: Sleek, Attractive AMD Ryzen Powered Ultrabook
Source: Hot Hardware English
The MateBook D doesn't come with all the bells-and-whistles you'll find in more expensive laptops, but it stands out nonetheless. At just $629.99 it offers a lot in terms of graphics performance, portability and style. It also shows AMD as a truly viable option in the mobile market. It doesn't offer the same single core performance as Intel, but it has a better IGP, strong multi-threaded performance, runs cool and quiet, and is generally less expensive. All of this makes the MateBook D a great value for anyone on a budget and an easy recommendation.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.
