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.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
