Huawei today presented the new generation of its Huawei MateBook 14 laptop , which arrives with an aluminum body that is only 1.59 mm thick and weighs only 1.49 kg.
The company ensures that the resistance of the equipment has been put to the test with numerous tests that include working for 960 hours continuously, opening / closing the hinge 25,000 times, performing 5 million keystrokes, placing the finger on the fingerprint reader 320,000 times, and make 10,000 connections to ports.
The new laptop has a screen surrounded by very narrow frames, with a 90 percent use of the front. It has a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels with a 3: 2 ratio, and covers 100% of the sRGB color space. It is available in both touch and non-touch versions.
To enhance the multimedia experience, it has to surround stereo sound, and to increase comfort it has a fingerprint reader on the power button.
Inside, we find a processor that, in its most powerful configuration, can become a powerful AMD Ryzen 7 4800H chip , built in a 7 nm process and with 8 cores. This chip is accompanied by DDR4 memory.
This processor is often used in thicker gaming laptops, so it’s surprising that Huawei was able to fit it into such a lightweight laptop. Although it normally works at a power of 35W, Huawei has included a performance mode that can increase the power of the chip by raising the consumption up to 40W.
According to Huawei figures, the MateBook 14 with 16GB / 512GB in balanced mode is able to load a 1GB Powerpoint file in just 2.5 seconds, edit 300 7.5GB Lightroom images in 2.6 seconds, and compile 3, 4 million code in Visual Studio in 4 minutes and 10 seconds.
To improve heat dissipation, Huawei has reduced the size of the motherboard by 15 percent. In addition, it has included a new dual Shark Fin Fan that increases airflow by 39% thanks to a reduction in the thickness of the blades of 40 percent and an increase in the number of blades of 49%.
The Huawei MateBook 14’s battery has a capacity of 56 Wh, which offers 10 hours of 1080p video playback, 10 hours of office work and 8.5 hours of web browsing.
In terms of connectivity, it has a USB-C connector, two USB 3.2 connectors, an HDMI connector, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
