Reviews for the Huawei MateBook D, AMD Edition
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.

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.
