Reviews for the Huawei MateBook X Pro 2019, i5-8265U

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019)
Source: PC Mag English
A screen among the best in the ultraportable arena makes Huawei's 13.9-inch MateBook X Pro a tempting Windows ultralight alternative to Apple's MacBook Pro, but the 2019 model might not be the bargain the 2018 edition was.

Hands on: Huawei MateBook X Pro 2019 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) is an otherwise excellent ultrabook that’s undermined by a poor battery. Unless you’re going to be working somewhere with mains power close by, or you’re OK with lugging around a portable battery pack, I’d approach this MacBook Air alternative with caution.

The new Huawei MateBook X Pro is a fine laptop that manages to outperform its predecessor … but not nearly enough to make it worth the upgrade – much less the outright purchase for newcomers.

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) unboxing and first impressions
Source: Neowin English
Announced at Mobile World Congress this year, Huawei's new MateBook X Pro includes the same 91% screen-to-body ratio that it had last year, along with a 13.9-inch 3,000x2,000 display. The internals have been upgraded, as you'd expect, with Intel's new Whiskey Lake CPUs and Nvidia's GeForce MX250, replacing Kaby Lake R and the MX150.

A few minor upgrades don't make the MateBook X Pro a massively better ultraportable - but it was a damn good one already. If you want a powerhouse Windows laptop that you can carry anywhere, it's still a great choice.

Huawei MateBook X Pro updated, other models likely coming to Australia

All this is part of the company’s new and updated PCs. The existing Huawei MateBook X Pro is being updated, while the new MateBook 13 and MateBook 14 are being released to the market.

The latest MateBook X Pro is just as impressive as the one that came before it, if not more so with increased power throughout. This update should maintain the laptop's pole position, but won't be an essential upgrade for existing users.

Hands on: Huawei MateBook X Pro 2 Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
At a first glance, the MateBook X Pro 2 feels like an iterative update from Huawei, but new Whiskey Lake CPUs and more powerful graphics, not to mention plenty of style, could make this a hit – if the price is right.

On the one hand, this is a pretty boring spec refresh of last year's model offering a bit more processing and graphical power.

Huawei MateBook X Pro initial review: Pleasing performance bump
Source: Pocket Lint English
The MateBook X Pro for 2019 very much looks like the return of the king. This was a great laptop in its former guise and with a few power tweaks, Huawei has made sure that the hardware hasn’t expired.

Hands-on: Huawei’s sleek new MateBook X Pro (2019) and MateBook 14
Source: Android Authority English
The new MateBook X Pro is titled the same as last year’s model, so you may have trouble telling them apart if you’re looking to pick one up. In fact, the chassis is almost identical to last year, with the exception of the logo on the top of the device. While the original MateBook X Pro had the Huawei logo embedded into the top of the device alongside the name, the new model removes the logo and leaves the name only. The primary differences between the MateBook X Pro from this year and the model from last year are the internals.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

13.9":

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.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

1.33 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
