HUAWEI announced on September 10 a new model in its ultrabook lineup – the MateBook X 2020, a much lighter version of the flagship MateBook X Pro 2020. We have tested the novelty and will gladly share our impressions in this note.

The first thing you should pay attention to is weight. The laptop weighs only 1,020 kg, meaning it is 310 g lighter than the Pro version. At the same time, the X-variant retained all the advantages of the top model, such as 16 GB of RAM, tenth-generation Intel processors, an LTPS matrix, a resolution of 3000×2000 pixels, and the ability to reproduce 100% of the sRGB color palette.
The price in the market is not announced, but in Europe, the model we received HUAWEI MateBook X (i5 + 16GB + 512GB) is € 1599. Taking into account regional prices, the cost of new items will be in the region of 130 thousand prices.

Users of HUAWEI MateBook X will be available in four shades: shimmering silver (Silver Frost), rich green (Forest Green), starry sky (Interstellar Blue), and pink cherry (Sakura Pink). We got the standard silver version. Now let’s get to the details.

PACKAGING & DELIVERY

The MateBook X 2020 comes in the brand’s traditional flesh-colored box with a plastic handle. Inside is a premium white box with an iridescent logo, protected by cardboard frames, where the laptop is located in the packaging film. The two compartments contain charging, a USB Type-C cord, and a Hub adapter from Type-C to USB 3.0. The keyboard is protected by a special transparent film.

LOADING

The laptop is started by the power key located at the top right of the keyboard and has the function of automatically logging into the profile by fingerprint. The setting of this mode is standard – about 15 scans.

The buttons on the keyboard are soft, uniform, standing out by a scissor-type mechanism with a stroke of 1.3 mm. The font is applied perfectly. The keys themselves are illuminated, which makes working in low light conditions as comfortable as possible.

The webcam is hidden among the buttons of the upper sector, and it is generally useless – during conference calls, it shows the interlocutors your chin, and for comfortable communication, you will have to hold the laptop with your hands. In addition, due to the low resolution, the camera does not support the face recognition function.

The touch panel is recessed in the case and has a nice click when pressed.

APPEARANCE

The laptop is made in a fashionable business style with a matte aluminum alloy surface. The lid is lifted with one hand due to the excellent hinge of the screen. It’s stiff and doesn’t bend. The laptop does not have a separate output for the power supply and is charged via Type-C. In addition, to achieve maximum compactness, the creators abandoned all outputs except Type-C. One can be found on the left along with the audio jack for 3.5 mm headphones, and the second on the right. Slots are a bit cruel to the input, for example, when using USB flash drives.

In normal mode, the laptop is very quiet – the noise level is below 35dB. When playing music or watching videos, it vibrates on your lap because of the four heavy-duty speakers. Heating in applications is almost imperceptible – the temperature of the case reaches 37-38 degrees. Weighs MateBook X 2020, as already noted, only 1,020 kg, which brings it to the leaders of ultralight ultrabooks. The screen-to-body ratio is 90%. The thickness of the device is 1.36 cm.

WORK AND TESTS

The laptop comes with a rechargeable Li-Ion battery (41428 mWh on the passport) from the Chinese company Sunwoda, which makes almost all the batteries for electric vehicles in China.

When working in standard mode (browsing the Internet, reading, editors), one hundred percent charge will last for 6 hours, when watching movies, it will be discharged in 8 hours. We’re not talking about games.

The computer itself was produced in July 2020. Inside it is an Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-10210U CPU @ 1.60GHz, two 8GB LPDDR3 SDRAM dimes with a maximum frequency of 2133 MT/s from Samsung, a 512GB KXG60ZNV512G solid-state drive (NVMe) from Toshiba, traditionally divided into two sectors, a built-in Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX201 160MHz network adapter and a video card based on the Intel(R) UHD Graphics processor (1 GB). As a sound solution is used Realtek ALC256 @ Intel Comet Point-LP PCH – Cavs.

The screen is a JDI364C 13-inch (274×183 mm) LTPS touch panel from Japan Display Inc. with a screen resolution of 3K (3000×2000 @60 Hz). The brightness is 450 cd/m2. Contrast ratio: 1500:1. PWM is absent, the manufacturer filters the harmful blue spectrum. We did not notice the lights, the color reproduction is very natural, the screen supports 100% of the sRGB color palette.

The 3:2 aspect ratio makes it more comfortable to work with documents and tables. True, in the sun, the coating of the screen is too much glare, so you have to twist the brightness to the maximum.

In standard mode, AIDA64 shows the following temperatures:

CPU – 35 °C
CPU Package — 34 °C
CPU IA Cores — 34 °C
CPU GT Cores — 34 °C
CPU 1 / Core 1 – 34 °C
CPU 1 / Core 2 – 32 °C
CPU 1 / Core 3 – 34 °C
CPU 1 / Core 4 – 33 °C
KXG60ZNV512G TOSHIBA — 31 °C
CrystalDisk Info tests indicate an average SSD temperature of 28 °C.

The disk speed in Crystal Disk Mark was 3304 MB/s for reading and writing 2944 MB/s, which is quite fast against the background of competitors. AS SDD as always shows slightly more modest values: 2469 MB/s for reading and writing 2168 MB/s, respectively. It’s very fast, but not for gaming. But here it is important to understand that the MateBook X 2020 is not a gaming machine. Of course, it can pull something out of simple games at medium settings, but you should not expect a miracle here.

Unigine showed from 4 to 7 FPS on medium settings in 1080p. Final Fantasy XV Benchmark considered the system unsuitable and gave it 577 points. For comparison, the MateBook D received a value twice as much with less video memory.

The MateBook X 2020 is good as a portable cinema with four speakers with separate frequency adjustment and high-precision distortion correction.

The sound is deep and rich, and the ultrabook itself, as I have already noted, literally vibrates on your knees. YouTube, working with excel tables, surfing the network, watching movies – as a workhorse, the MateBook X 2020 is just perfect. Although due to the aspect ratio, the black bars when watching some videos will be slightly more noticeable.

The lightness, subtlety, and almost frameless screen are, of course, fantastic. Too bad the price is biting. It would cost 800-900 euros!
