Huawei had launched the latest entry in its MateBook D 15 lineup back in November 2019. The laptop was an ultrabook Windows system and featured Intel‘s i5 processor alongside 8GB of RAM and 256GB of SSD (Solid State Drive) and a regular 1TB of HDD storage.
Now, a couple of months after its original launch, Huawei has now released a new variant of the laptop that features an improved 512GB SSD and Nvidia’s MX250 mobile gaming GPU. For those unaware, MateBook D 15 sports a 15.6 inch IPS anti-glare display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080px. Its touchpad was larger than its previous iterations, and its configuration brought in numerous improvements to performance.
Huawei’s MateBook D 15 laptops also house Intel’s latest 10th generation Core processors alongside Nvidia mobile GPUs. It is powered by a 65W USB Type C power adapter that weighs just about 160 grams. Interestingly, the Chinese tech giant’s laptop even supported fast charging for certain Huawei smartphones as well. All in all, the laptop was a solid offering, but its viability has been further improved.
The price of the newest version is 5,199 Yuan, which roughly translates to about 732 US Dollars. Notably, the key difference between an SSD and an HDD storage is read and write speeds, with SSDs being faster than its disk variant by a large margin that also makes it more expensive. Hence, the bumped up storage version might be an extremely attractive offering.
However, it is designed with portability in mind, the sleek metallic body laptop weighs just 1.53kg1, and it has a thickness of 16.9mm2, so you can enjoy its immaculate Full View display wherever you are.
HUAWEI MateBook D 15 is being powered by 10th generation Intel® Core™ i5 10210U processor, which accelerates and enhances performance. Fitted with PCIe SSD3, and packing up to 16GB memory in dual-channel architecture, it offers more possibilities. With NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 graphics, it also empowers you to master daily work or enjoy entertainment with no effort at all.
Its 2×2 MIMO dual-antenna WLAN helps to supports a theoretical transfer rate of up to 1733 Mbps4 and ensures a more stable connection to keep you going.
