With the launch of the Huawei MateBook D 15, the company most known for their excellent range of smartphones is bringing that same level of power, convenience, portability and style to the laptop market. Huawei is confident that their MateBook range, and in particular the impressive D 15, will leave consumers both impressed and satisfied but at the end of the day, how are they planning to do that? Well, there are some points that stand out as being significant, so let’s take a look at four things to love about the Huawei MateBook D15
Before unpacking how well the MateBook D15 performs, it’s important to realise that the power this notebook outputs is remarkable for how portable the device is. Within a chassis of only 357.4 x 229.5 x 16.95mm, Huawei has somehow managed to stuff an AMD R5AMD Ryzen 5 3500U alongside a Radeon Vega 8 Graphics GPU. To put those in simple terms, the MateBook D 15 is an absolute powerhouse designed to process multiple intense tasks at once while retaining the tight, compact design of a portable computer.
The MateBook D 15 is perfect for students needing a device to use during lectures or businesspeople who’re constantly on the go. Even if you’re the kind of person that travels a lot and needs to take some games with them for the trip, the portability and power of the D 15 make it an easy recommendation as a device that runs a decent chunk of software without requiring you lug around what feels like a small shipment of bricks in a backpack.
The Huawei FullView Display
The other thing so important in a laptop is the quality of the screen. Let’s be real, the screen is basically half of the entire device so if your computer is able to output some real nice imagery, you want to see that in the best possible quality. Huawei’s now-iconic FullView Display is exactly what you need to show off what you’re able to produce with the MateBook D 15.
What exactly does the FullView Display do for you? Well, it provides one of the clearest and sharpest screens possible. Thanks to Huawei’s expertise in system integration, users can expect the device to provide a seamless, borderless viewing experience with a 15.6” 16:9 FHD screen with some of the smallest bezels in the industry. Seriously, they only measure in at 5.3mm thin. What were we just saying about portability without sacrificing on quality.
Huawei Share Integration
In a world where all our devices are designed to sync together and work fluidly, Huawei has always been one step ahead of the competition. This is no different with the MateBook D 15, a notebook which features Huawei Share as an optimised way to communicate and “talk” between your various Huawei devices. Users can sync their Huawei smartphones, like the P40 or P40 Lite with the MateBook D 15 to share files and information between the two but there’s so much more to the system than that.
Once your devices are synced up, you’ll be able to throw up your smartphone’s display on the MateBook D 15, making showing off images and presentations saved to your phone easier than ever. Better yet, you can operate and control mobile apps through the MateBook D 15 and even edit documents only saved on your phone. It’s an optimisation of a function that most tech companies often overlook yet Huawei has gone the extra mile to make even this process convenient and even more efficient than usual.
Shark Fin 2.0 cooling system
One of the most important features in a notebook is the cooling system. Given that plenty of folks tend to use laptops both on desks and in locations that may smother the base of the machine a touch, having a machine capable of cooling itself efficiently is a must. The MateBook D 15 is fitted with Huawei’s Shark Fin Fan 2.0 to ensure it runs cool and stable even when powering through the most challenging of tasks.
The Shark Fin 2.0 keeps the MateBook D 15 cool on a systemic level, meaning strain is taken off individual components to ensure the machine’s performance never buckles under the heat. The Shark Fin 2.0 fans deliver 27% higher air output to maximise airflow throughout the machine, keeping everything consistently cool.
Those are just some of the things to adore about the Huawei MateBook D 15. This isn’t even taking in account the price of the machine. At only R13,499, it’s a wonder how Huawei is okay with selling a device with high-end specs and design sensibilities for such a competitive price. Of course, there are plenty of other things to like about the MateBook D 15 but those…well, you’ll have to find those out yourself, won’t you?
