It’s hard to believe that another school year is upon us; but even though it might look and feel a little different this year, it doesn’t mean how we approach a new semester should be any different. Back to school always signifies a fresh start and that means updating your current technology is a must. HUAWEI does not only make amazing phones like the Huawei P40 Pro, which includes the world’s best smartphone camera – but they are also exceptional at making non-smartphone products, including laptops. To begin the school year right, I want to introduce you to the Matebook Series by HUAWEI which has a laptop suitable for every lifestyle and budget. I mainly want to highlight the Matebook 13 their lightest and most portable laptop to date, thus making it one of the best laptops for this back-to-school season.
introducing the hUAWEI matebook 13 (2020)
I was able to test out the Matebook 13 for the first time during our family trip back in August, and I have to say I was surprised at how much punch this laptop packs despite its convenient sleek and small size! The newly updated HUAWEI Matebook 13 2020 is faster, has a longer battery life and contains so many great new features like a borderless screen that it will make this PC the perfect back to school accessory! So when it comes to buying a new laptop for back to school, it’s important to choose something that will support you throughout your education (1) and the HUAWEI Matebook 13 has all the wonderful support you will need this fall.
The Ultimate Design for Optimal Portability
Light as a Feather
The first quality when purchasing a laptop either for yourself or for your child for back to school is to see how travel-friendly the P.C is, and what stands out to me the most about the Matebook 13 is its lightweight nature! Weighing at just 1.31 kg, it’s an ideal weight to comfortably carry around and not cause you any back pain while doing it.
Thin but Compact
Meticulously crafted with a diamond-cut finish on each corner to give it that ultra-modern premium look and feel, this powerfully elegant machine has a slimline of just 14.9 mm which can easily fit into a medium-size backpack or smaller tote or even inside a desk for quick accessibility.
Size that Matters
When looking for a laptop to bring to class for taking notes, consider a smaller screen (2) because something large would be so cumbersome to carry around and not to mention heavy. I would settle for a size like the Matebook 13 which is bigger than a tablet but smaller than a standard size laptop, making it an ideal size to transport to the classroom and back but still have an appropriate screen size for writing or viewing.
A Vivid Visual Experience
Borderless Immersive Screen
With a 13-inch FullView Display, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 delivers more than an impressive screen; it brings to life a fully immersive visual experience. The 88% screen-to-body ratio lets you see more in a vivid way, unveiling an extraordinary view for work, school and play.
Bright Visual Display
For the ultimate visual experience the Matebook 13 offers a 2K display with bright and lively visuals rich in details and 300 nits (unit of measurement that describes how bright a display screen is and the higher the number of nits, the brighter the display) which is typical in standard, ensures a pleasant viewing experience with clear contrast and colour depth.
Easy on the Eyes
HUAWEI MateBook 13’s state-of-the-art screen can reduce blue light harmful to your eyes. Especially helpful when you spend a long time doing homework or taking notes or watching presentations, simply select the Eye Comfort Mode to automatically adjust white balance and colour tone to protect your retina so you can work and play in optimal comfort for as long as you like.
An Exceptional & Intelligent Performance
A Longer Battery Life
There’s nothing worse than having your laptop die when you need it most. As a student, it’s important for your laptop to last through back-to-back classes and you don’t want to be constantly plugged into an outlet in order to keep your device running. So choose a laptop with a battery that lasts (3) and that is why you need the Matebook 13 – the device has a 41.7 Wh (typical capacity) large battery that allows you to play local 1080p videos for 11.6 hrs on a full charge. It can be charged to 50% in only 30 minutes so you can charge it up during lunch break and you are good to go for till the end of classes and even for the bus ride home.
Rapid Heat Dissipation
Long usage for any device means that it will get hot but HUAWEI’s Shark Fin 2.0 fan design can dissipate heat faster by using dual fans, achieving a 25% speed increase than normal fans. It enhances airflow to cool the computer rapidly and quietly for a better working experience. With this technology, you can enjoy an uninterrupted and smooth workflow even when running multiple apps or playing intense games.
I really do believe that HUAWEI did a very good job creating their Touch Screen for the Matebook 13 because it’s so responsive and just makes tackling a task so much easier. Since I like to transport the laptop around, I often don’t have space or a flat surface for a mouse so the touch screen is a fantastic option for traveling and also for attending lectures.
HUAWEI Share: A Multi-Device Collaboration
The last feature I want to discuss is HUAWEI Share and I want to take some time to explain more about this brilliant option. I love this feature so much because I use it daily and all the time to transfer photos and notes instantly from my HUAWEI P40 Pro phone to the laptop and not to mention super helpful for busy students. With just a simple tap, your HUAWEI smartphone and Huawei MateBook will transform into the “ONE” super device even without any internet connection. Your phone screen appears on your laptop which allows you to drag and drop files between them, and edit the files on your laptop while messaging colleagues on your phone using the same keyboard and mouse. That’s right you can answer calls straight from your laptop if you choose to, control apps, and even shake your phone to screen record. This Multi-screen Collaboration function will certainly make school life much easier. To learn more about HUAWEI Share click HERE
One Reliable Companion
Any new school year will bring certain levels of uncertainties; hence that is why it is an exciting time! However, what can be certain is the laptop you choose and I highly recommend the HUAWEI Matebook 13 for its durability and reliability in both work and play. If you are looking for a new laptop for back to school specifically, I highly recommend the Matebook 13 because it will be your best companion for the school year. Beautifully crafted in a chic Space Gray colour, this laptop is minimal and contemporary in design yet impressively powerful and lightweight making it an extremely travel-friendly device to carry around campus. Bright and vivid, the laptop also offers eye comfort mode, one-touch fingerprint sensor and power button, Multi-Device collaboration and much more to suit your needs. Not to mention it has the versatility of a tablet with the practicality of a laptop (4) you can also save money and not have to spend on two separate devices. Speaking of budget, the Matebook 13 also comes with a very affordable price tag (suggested price of $1699), meaning you are getting a steal for the quality and for the variety of options it includes, making it not only budget-friendly but an amazing long term investment for many school years to come.
*Also, keep an eye out for any back-to-school deals that are being offered on this device from a number of its carriers, including Staples, Canada Computers & Electronics, Newegg, Visions Electronics, & Memory Express.
