When you think of laptops Huawei may not be the first brand to spring to mind. Not to worry though – when it comes to laptops, they are a relatively new player to the game. With their huge success in the smartphone market, it’s no wonder that many consumers are willing to take notice now that they have started offering Huawei laptops to add to their success in the smartphone market.
Below we have put together an extensive list of the best Huawei laptops in 2020 based on tons of research and reviews to give you a trustworthy list of Huawei’s greatest laptop successes. If you are hunting for some more budget options, our guide to the best Huawei laptops under $500 may also come in handy.
1. Huawei MateBook X Pro 2020
The Huawei MateBook X Pro is currently Huawei’s flagship laptop model and an obvious direct competitor to the likes of Apple’s Macbook Pro. Luckily for Huawei, according to laptop review sites it has scored incredidbly high markets with reviewers praising its fast performance, high quality screen, long battery life and comfortable keyboard. That said, some prominent reviewers have also shed some criticism on the MateBook X Pro too, citing that it runs too hot under load and mentioning an annoying auto-dim feature which could be frustrating.
If you are looking for a Macbook style laptop but at half the price, the Matebook X Pro is certainly one of your top options and is the best Huawei laptop on the market in 2020 and probably the best laptop they have ever made. It features either an Intel Core i5-10210U or Intel Core i7-10510U processor, an NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics card which allows the Matebook X Pro to function as a very basic gaming laptop, a 512GB or 1TB SSD hard drive and either 8GB or 16GB of LPDDR3 2133 MHz RAM. All possible configurations allow for high performance applications, though keep in mind the dedicated graphic card will only work for light gaming at best.
2. Huawei MateBook 14 2020
If you are a normal human being like most of us who can’t afford to spend an arm and a leg on a new laptop, then the Huawei MateBook 14 2020 offers a serious sweet spot in the mid-range laptop market. Popular reviewers have praised the MateBook 14 for all the same reasons as its Matebook Pro big brother – a polished lightweight design with thin bezels, a high-quality screen, and a high-quality keyboard. The kicker of course is that the Matebook 14 is around half the price!
Some issues have also cropped up with the return to budget normality, including below-average graphics performance and a cheap-feeling trackpad not found on the higher end MateBook models. Unlike Huawei’s high-end only laptops, the MateBook 14 also comes with an AMD based configuration which could offer more bang for your buck versus the Intel based models.
3. Huawei MateBook X 2020
In-between the all out power of the MateBook X Pro and more budget friendly options such as the MateBook 14, the original Huawei MateBook X 2020 offers some amazing hardware at a better price point than the Pro. The only catch? Finding one may not be easy.
The design of the MateBook X original looks very similiar to some recent Macbook models with larger keys flush against the side of the laptop, making the MateBook X not just the MateBook Pro with slimmer hardware but an entirely new design from scratch. Unfortunately, only time will tell whether the original MateBook X can make it’s way into the hands of consumers in the US and abroad.
4. Huawei MateBook D 15 2020
Another champion option for the working class proletariat, the Huawei MateBook D 15 is budget Huawei laptop that received mostly positive reviews from critics with a few shortfalls. Popular review site TechRadar was impressed with its design, but ultimately only gave it a 7 out of 10 thanks to below average battery life and an average quality display.
Despite a few niggling gripes, the MateBook D received excellent reviews for its classy design, a theme I’m sure you’ve picked up by now when it comes to the real merits of Huawei’s MateBook laptop line-ups, including its classic (Macbook style) ultra-slim screen bezels. As with the MateBook 14, the MateBook D 15 also comes with an AMD based configuration for the true hardware connoisseur.
5. Huawei MateBook D 14 2020
Last but not least, the Huawei MateBook D 14 is a trimmed down version of the Huawei MateBook 14 without the extra screen room of the Huawei MateBook D 15 listed above. It comes with an AMD based configuration for some extra value for money hardware and features the same streamlined Macbook style design (is this getting old yet?!) as Huawei’s other models that got most reviewers hot and heavy.
Review site TrustedReviews gave the MateBook D 14 a 9 out of 10 thanks to its premium design, affordable price tag and quality keyboard, citing it as en excellent student laptop thanks to its solid performance and low price. They were critical of a low quality display and strange webcam positioning, but clearly this wasn’t enough to lose too many marks!
To Huawei, or Not to Huwei?
Based on the general positive feedback from professional laptop reviewers and hardware geeks, its safe to say that despite the negative media attention Huawei laptops are certainly up there with the best the world has to offer. Their streamlined and extremely ‘Macbooky’ look-and-feel make for a budget laptop about as close to a Macbook as one can get running Windows, and at half the price!
We’d highly recommend looking into the world of Huawei laptops and hope this list of the best Huawei laptops in 2020 has something for you – whether you are a cheapskate or a power user, Huawei has a versatile enough line-up to match almost any budget.
