      And Apple rips off their "Macbook" from a generic name "Notebook"? Huawei has been using the "Mate" model branding for ten years..

    But the new MacBook Air is insanely faster than this and costs the same.

      Which one are you comparing it too?

      Some of these laptops are capable of displaying to 2 external monitors.
      Some of these laptops have more than 8GB of Memory
      Some of these laptops have 1TB of storage
      None of these laptops run MacOS.

        Or laptops that uses discrete graphics?

        I said faster. And it is literally faster in CPU, GPU and SSD than anything on the list in this deal.

        MacOS is certainly an inconvenience for this comparison, I'm also not a big fan of it.

      If you buy a Huawei over a macbook now that M1 is out, you're crazy.

      Insanely faster in what way? Can you post information beyond synthetic benchmarks such as Geekbench and SPECint. I have yet to see actual application performance beyond those optimised for it's specific hardware. What about 3rd party applications or those that also used Windows applications. For something that is on a TSMC 5nm node like the M1 that supposed to have faster graphics than a 14nm Nvidia 1050 from 2016, why does it only support one monitor output.

        Here's a adobe benchmark from puget systems and result for i7-8550U.

        This Dell Inspiron 7400 is a better buy than the Huawei.

        Own a Macbook Air base model and my wife owns a Huawei Matebook pro (which I have suggested people buy before, it's a great laptop). The M1 is incredibly fast though. Even tested against my desktop PC for UE4 and Blender performance the M1 is insane, with no fan and it doesn't even get hot. Crazy. The Matebook warms up as soon as you open notepad.

      Macbook Air makes all other ultrabook looks bad especially at that price point, it's a no brainer

      $2050 (edu price) for Macbook Air M1 16GB/512GB configuration
      $2700 (after 25% discount) for Dell XPS 13" 16GB/512GB + high res screen

        Look around for reviews, it runs x86 apps faster all intel U laptops. + at this price point no other laptops can match it for overall build quality + performance + battery + screen quality

      *unless you need windows or use x86 apps

      It is also running a different instruction set and won't be able to run all your favorite apps and programs…

      •  

        These will be available shortly. It’s not like Huawei phones being banned from using Google apps. Trump was right on the money with that policy.

    Hopefully this helps anybody going down the rabbit hole trying to find out if the Huawei Matebook X Pro 2020 supports Thunder Bolt:
    https://consumer.huawei.com/au/support/laptops/matebook-x-pr...

    The web site has no mention of it
    The downloaded manual has no mention of it
    The side icons have no ThunderBolt Icon.

    But this video confirms that it actually does have it
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srdv26SCOjw

    I think it might be a licensing thing.

    • +1 vote

      "Even though the ports remained identical, a quick glance at the specs sheet revealed that Thunderbolt 3 is not mentioned anywhere, and there is no Thunderbolt 3 symbol next to the USB-C port either. From a technical point of view the front USB-C port supports all Thunderbolt 3 features, it’s just that Huawei decided not to purchase a license for its 2020 model and thus cannot display the Thunderbolt name or symbol on this device."

    This is a great price and has me tempted. But in the interests of transparency, this Matebook X Pro is the 2018 version - is that correct? It should be included somewhere, I couldn't even find it in the eBay listing.

      The i7 is 8th gen

      Hi Click_It,

      Yes this is the high-end 2018 version, it will be updated soon to include it. Thank you!

    •  

      As much as I love my Matebook X Pro (2018) the thermals are a little iffy. It's a little frustrating that the fans go to full speed if it's on charge (even if not doing anything remotely intensive).

      Also surprising the price has held steady. I remember paying $2,000 or so in 2018?

      •  

        Don't they recommend reapplying the thermal paste to reduce temps and fan activity on these? Did you try that? Bit of a pain in the ass I agree but I've heard the impact from doing so can be huge.

        •  

          Unsure. At the time the suggestion was undervolting which helped whilst the unit wasn't plugged in but it didn't stop the full speed fans when plugged in.

          If working it's not bad because there's usually music or something, but it's a bit annoying when just watching a movie in bed. Tbh, I usually just unplug it when watching Netflix.

          Quite a few units had trackpad rattle too, but mine didn't.

          Tbh if in the market now I would imagine the new M1 laptops will be competitively priced to make a statement.

    Why is the Matebook X Pro with 16gb ram so much cheaper than the one with 8gb ram? All the other specs look the same (at a glance).

    Coupon code seems doesn't work with the matebook x pro

      Hi Bargainer123 & Click_It,

      Really sorry that it is not working, currently trying to get this issue resolved and will keep you updated. Thank you

      Hi all,

      Apologies for the coupon code currently not working for the Matebook X Pro. We have escalated it to eBay and are working closely with them to fix it. In the meantime, if you would like to purchase the Matebook X Pro, you can place an order for the Lenovo Yoga X1 mentioned in this deal for the same price, and then please PM me with your order details or send a eBay message to let us know that you are after a Matebook X Pro instead, and we will arrange a swap to the Matebook X Pro for your order. Thank you

    Would the Lenovo X1 Yoga G4 be a good laptop for kids at school? i.e. it will take knocks? I am a fan of the T-series I had as a corporate laptop.
    I need to buy a high school laptop, the school standardised on win10 and prefer Lenovo for resilience. They also recommend touchscreen and screen writing.

    I have been looking at a few laptops with a gaming card (1050ti) to ease the congestion on the home pcs with 3 boys + dad, but they all suck on battery life and too heavy, so I guess keeping fortnite out of school is a good idea.

    Edit: I see the Lenovo Yoga see it has Thunderbolt 3… so an EGPU could work at home…mmmm (I have an old GTX 960 lying in a drawer)

    A MacBook user could need sometime to get used to the FHD.

  •  

    thinking to get the Matebook 13 AMD (R5-3500u , 8gb ram, 256gb ssd with a 2k screen) would this be appropriate for the price ? 900$ and would just be used for uni

    •  

      The price is very decent, but RAM is not upgradable. Depends on what you study, 8GB may not be enough. I usually would recommend 16GB RAM for work/uni laptops.

      •  

        Thanks, I've now started to look at the M1 Macbook Pro… looks like a beast for 1700$ not sure if first gen is worth it though

        •  

          If you're into the M1 macbooks I'd be leaning more toward the Air, spend the difference to get the top Air model and/or 16gb ram. It's lighter and quieter due to no fan, only throttle and slower than the pro after being pushed to max for 10+ mins.

          •  

            @Kingduytan: I don't understand how one has a 7c iGPU and the other has a 8c iGPU. Does it really make much difference

    After M1 anything with a intel chip looks obsolete…it’s a shame cause they had all the market share. Now AMD has all the gaming and servers, M1 is going to destroy what it has left it in traditional laptops…this is what happens when you skimp on R&D and now you lose.

    Never imagine I’m saying this but you can now edit 4K videos on a fanless MBA. Shame cause I got the intel MBA earlier this year. Looking like a terrible purchase

      Apple and amd spit roasting Intel from different ends of the market

    •  

      Intel's complacency just screams arrogance.

      •  

        I read a report yesterday suggesting Intel won't have a true 7nm chip before 2023. They are so far behind they won't even be relevant.

  •  

    Seems like a good deal on the X1s. Even has 3 year onsite warranty.
    Any thoughts on the the Carbon or Yoga? Yoga has more RAM, but Carbon is lighter.

    Code no longer works and price has increased on the Matebook 13 AMD. Deal expired?
