Premium Without a Premium Price Tag
- The HUAWEI MateBook D is the ideal laptop for those wanting premium design, features, and performance without a premium price tag.
- It is an ultra-slim and lightweight, yet full-featured notebook. It weighs just 3.5 lbs., measures just over half an inch (0.62”) thick and has a durable and beautiful metallic unibody so it is very portable, which is perfect for students who need to take a laptop with them everywhere.
- The Intel variants also feature a fingerprint reader integrated into the power key that recognizes multiple user profiles and starts up in just 9 seconds and launches from the lock screen in 0.9 seconds.
Power and Productivity On the Go
Despite its slim size, the HUAWEI MateBook D 14” packs in all the important features.
- 57.4 Whr large capacity battery that ensures up to 12 hours of 1080P video playback and even more of web browsing
- a full-size keyboard that is backlit and spill proof
- a large clickpad for gesture control
- It also comes with all the right ports, including USB-C, USB-A, and HDMI, ensuring you can easily connect to projectors and displays.
Entertainment Without Compromise
The display is Full HD and 16:9 wide which is great for watching videos, and it is Touch Screen! Touch screens are a must-have today. You can scroll through files and articles, and zoom in and out much faster than with a mouse and with more accuracy than just using the clickpad.
- And when you’ve earned that downtime and want to kick back and watch a movie, it has amazing sound. The four speakers, split frequency setup featuring Dolby ATMOS® creates an immersive surround sound effect.
