Huawei's MateBook line of laptops is getting increasingly popular. The MateBook X Pro may be the company's flagship laptop but Huawei has taken to offering a cheaper device in the series, in the form of the MateBook D. The MateBook D was refreshed a few weeks ago at Computex, and has finally made its way to the US.

The refreshed MateBook D is powered by AMD's quad-core Ryzen 5 2500U processor, a slight jump from Intel's dual-core Intel i7-7500U on the older model. The Vega 8 GPU integrated on the Ryzen 5 2500U also does better heavy-lifting than the GeForce 940MX on the base model.

The MateBook D features a 14-inch FHD touchscreen display, 8 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256 GB SSD. There's a 1 MP camera for your video-calling needs, and ports include USB-C, USB3.0 (Type A), USB2.0 (Type A), HDMI, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 

It comes with a quad-speaker setup for Dolby Atmos, a backlit keyboard, and weighs in at a lithe 3.5lbs. 

The MateBook D is available for purchase on Walmart, although it's currently out of stock. Also, Huawei has it penned down with a US$629 MSRP but it's listed for US$599 on Walmart.
