This Huawei MateBook 14s is against the competition
The Huawei MateBook 14s is currently shown in . format promotion in baker It offers an interesting configuration / price ratio for its class as it is one of the only companies to offer such a high-performance processor and graphics solution with such a large capacity SSD and a high-resolution screen with such faithful colors. Comes with a backpack.
Body, Connectors, and Display of Huawei MateBook 14s
Thin and light aluminum alloy design, this laptop has a discreet and elegant appearance.
The built-in connectivity of the versatile Ultrabook is good, with two USB-C ports including 1 Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi acFor remote communication and connectivity, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect this computer to a TV or monitor, for example, an audio port or even a single USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) ensures transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug USB 3.0 device.
With biometric reader integration, you can authenticate yourself via fingerprint recognition, via Windows Hello.
The button keyboard can of course be backlit, which is practical to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
The screen will be of particular interest to those who want a screen that is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9 screen because it adopts a much larger 3:2 square format. In addition, the screen is well suited for (very) high-resolution content such as videos because it adopts 2.5K resolution is higher than Full HD. In addition, the colorimeter offered by the display is more faithful than average because it promises to be in line with the sRGB space.
The screen also stands out for the fact that with the Fn + R key combination, you can increase the screen frequency from 60 Hz to 90 Hz to improve fluidity. It also features multi-touch technology that allows interaction with the system and software through the simple application with at least one finger on it, by pressing / gestures. If this Ultrabook can’t be turned into a tablet because it can’t be opened 360 degrees, the tactile side includes a glossy finish that’s more sensitive to reflections in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
The performance and autonomy of the Huawei MateBook 14s
Huawei MateBook 14s is a thin and lightweight HD laptop designed for everyday general purpose use.
Nomads will appreciate that it can last about 9 hours on battery in light use, which is even more important because the Ultrabook is easy to transport thanks to its small size, lightness, and accuracy.
To do this, this versatile laptop relies on energy-efficient components such as a large 1TB SSD storage, which rivals hard drives in the field.
As a bonus compared to the latter, let’s remember the advantages that SSD provides: silent operation, greater shock resistance, lower power consumption, and increased speed.
In practice, an SSD offers much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, we get for example faster start / stop processes, processing and running programs, or even faster access to online game cards.

While there’s no dedicated graphics card on board, it’s actually possible to view photos and videos but also play modest titles thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics solution (which we tested) built into the processor. It will be necessary to reduce the definition of the screen in particular, as 2.5K requires more calculations on the part of the GPU than Full HD.
It’s the quad-core i7-11370H Intel Tiger Lake-H processor that houses an Iris Xe processor, linked here with 16GB of RAM to deliver a solid overall performance capable of satisfying the maximum number of users. This core ensures faster processing than a low-power quad-core processor and 8GB of DDR4 memory. We especially feel the difference given the hard work of CPU and RAM resources to take advantage of multi-cores, such as photo editing or video editing.
