The Huawei MateBook 13 with Nvidia MX250 is going to be available at select Silicon Valley stores nationwide

Nvidia’s line of mobile graphics processors is designed to help boost the lackluster performance of Intel’s integrated graphics. The MX250 promises performance that’s 3.5x faster than integrated graphics as well as the right balance between long battery life and performance.

While it is considered a modest upgrade from the MX150, it is faster than Intel’s integrated graphics. And for some games, CNET describes it as tipping “your system over the line between ‘can’t run it’ and “at least meets the minimum requirements.'”

The Huawei MateBook 13 gives off the appearance of a slimmer yet more powerful Apple MacBook Air. The laptop is only available in Space Gray, and it comes with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage.
