Huawei MateBook X Pro

The big announcement here is undoubtedly the new MateBook X Pro. Ditching the incremental upgrades of the past, this year’s model boasts a full-on performance leap. The star attraction is the rarely-seen-in-thin-and-light laptops Intel Core Ultra 9 processor with an H suffix. This translates to desktop-grade power in an ultraportable chassis, further boosted by a whopping 32GB of RAM and 2TB of storage in the maxed-out configuration.

But the MateBook X Pro 2024 isn’t all about brute force. Huawei has impressively maintained the sleek, thin design. It’s one of the most portable 14-inch laptops packing an Intel Core Ultra CPU, weighing in at a featherlight 980 grams. The display lives up to the premium price tag, too, featuring a gorgeous 3.2K OLED panel with a near bezel-less design, a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and ample brightness for outdoor use.

We’ve been using the latest Huawei MateBook X Pro for weeks now, and we think it’s a winner.

The 2024 MateBook 14 isn’t a revolutionary leap, but it’s a solid upgrade over its 2023 predecessor. The biggest improvements come in the display department, with a jump from a 300-nit IPS LCD to a sharper, brighter 450-nit OLED panel. Raw performance gets a bump, too, with the move to a more powerful Core Ultra 7 155H CPU.

Battery life also sees a significant improvement, with a larger 70Wh battery replacing the previous model’s 56Wh unit. Oh, and it’s the first MateBook to support a stylus, making it a more versatile option for artists and note-takers. Another highlight here is the stunning 14.2-inch 2.8K OLED display with a familiar 3:2 aspect ratio, excellent color accuracy, and impressive peak brightness.
