After a laptop that’s light enough to carry around with you and makes web browsing, word processing and some basic photo editing a breeze? The Apple Macbook Air Late 2018 edition is the ideal choice. The smallest and thinnest version to date, the screen is sharp and bright and now runs right to the edges of the laptop. Even better, this sleek and stylish laptop offered a respectable nine hours of video playback in our battery life tests. But, at this price point, this sleek and stylish laptop certainly isn’t suited to those on a limited budget.

DESIGN

Huawei matebook 13:

It is a metallic body and the design element of this, I think it is really really nice it doesn’t weigh very much about 1.3 kilograms which means that it’s like to carry around it. Also means that it’s great if you want to put it in a bag a backpack a laptop bag whatever it doesn’t have that bulk to it the other thing is that you have this tapered design it’s about 0.5 9 inches at the thinnest, and then it kind of tapers slightly thicker all the way to the end. Design of the Huawei mate book 13 is carried through into, the inside once you open the laptop itself you’ll notice this really large keyboard and it’s a very comfortable keyboard to use.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

The MacBook Air 2018 boasts Retina design, a new keyboard, and Touch ID – not to mention a generous 10-plus hours of battery life, which makes it live up to expectations as one of the best laptops today and the ‘Air’ name. And while this laptop is pricier than the original MacBook Air, it’s still cheaper than all the other laptops running macOS Mojave, except for the 2017 MacBook Air.
 

WEIGHT & DIMENSIONS

Huawei matebook 13:

Weighing 2.9 pounds and measuring 11.3 x 8.3 x 0.6 inches thick, the MateBook 13.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

The new model is smaller and lighter, all while boasting some serious upgrades under the hood. Dimensions: 0.41-1.56cm x 30.41cm x 21.24cm; 1.25kg- Weight.

KEYBOARD AND TOUCHPAD

Huawei matebook 13:

The quiet keyboards are as well which is a nice experience the other thing, is you have this really large trackpad here on the bottom. The trackpad can be set up for you know scrolling and other customizations that you’ll find through Windows. That’s a good experience over there at the top over here is the power button. An incorporated power button that means, with the fingerprint sensor that’s incorporated within that with one touch you’re actually able to go straight into your desktop so if you power it off.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

MacBook Air now comes with Apple’s divisive butterfly keyboard, it is the third-generation version so the same as the current MacBook Pro 13 with touch bar it does take a little while to get used to and you do have this slightly annoying clacking noise but honestly, what’s your climatized to it once you get used to it. It’s absolutely fine what I am glad Apple has chosen to do though is not put in the touch bar. I don’t know what you think but I find a touch bar to be just a pain in the arse but the good news, is we do get the touch ID fingerprint reader built into the power button the force touch trackpad is the same as the MacBook Pro.I still maintain the touchpad on these Apple app tops is pretty much the best one you can get on any laptop right now, plus you get excellent gesture support in Mac OS.

PORT SELECTION

Huawei matebook 13:

This mate book 13 actually has one of two options, either you can go with a quad-core Core i5 or in this case which is the one that I have an i7 processor that’s Intel’s Core i7 eights generation processors. The model also comes with eight gigabytes of RAM and up to 512 gigabytes of storage. i7 version is also going to come with the NVIDIA MX 115 graphics card and the graphics card is great for you to know like gaming but also to help with photo and video editing.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

The new MacBook Air comes with Intel eight gen dual-core processors eight or 16 gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of storage. Which can be configured all the way up to one and a half terabytes, unfortunately, you can’t upgrade, the processor you’re stuck with the 1.6 gigahertz I 582 10 why? now Apple is, of course, quick to say how much faster this is compared to the old MacBook Air, of course, it is but the performance is really the area where this falls behind the pro it uses a custom 7-watt dual-core processor which is basically Intel’s lowest power chip and just a beefed-up version of the one you get in the basic MacBook compared to the 15.

DISPLAY

Huawei matebook 13:

DisplayPort is only supported on the right USB C port and it’s just a really bad time with this thing thankfully they do include, this adapter with a bunch of different ports on it, but what you get off the laptop is quite disappointing to get the bottom panel off. You’ll need to rip off the rubber feet so it’s not the easiest thing to upgrade but once you’re in you can upgrade the SSD and the Wi-Fi card. If you’re looking to heck this thing the RAM is started on though so that’s not upgradeable the unit. Just touching the display works just fine very responsive, and I did promise we would check and see if this is the faster or slower MX 150 now. The numbers we’re looking for is one d twelve or one to ten one, D twelve is the slower model one to ten is the faster one and if you look right here under device ID, one D ten right there so it does have the faster MX 15.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

Apple MacBook Air 13-inch with Retina display, because the new 30 point        3-inch screen has 2560 by 1600 resolution. So we’re looking at 227 pixels per inch versus.

BATTERY

Huawei matebook 13:

Charging capability you will get about Oh two hours with about 15 to 20 minutes, worth of charge which is very very good. The other thing is it is an incredibly light charging brick, which is nice to see you also get USB to see a charging cable. So this is great because not only does it mean that you know you can if you forget you’re charging cable you can use another, USB C charging cable it also means that this can be used for charging up to other devices, for example, your smartphone.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

The three and a half mil headphone jack plus two USB C Thunderbolt three ports, and because it’s fund about three it means we can well charge it from these. But also output to a 5k display or even two 4k displays or if you prefer you can even plug, in an external graphics card but that will be severely bottlenecked by the very low power processor.

PERFORMANCE

Huawei matebook 13:

The all-important touchscreen experience you’ve got a 13-inch touchscreen, which is actually noticeably smaller than something that you might find on the MacBook X Pro. It has actually a thirteen point nine-inch panel this is still very very good it’s a 2k panel 2160 by 1440. I love the aspect ratio, it’s got a three-to-two aspect ratio you also have incredibly small bezels, all around the side and the bezel now will hide behind it the front-facing camera. In the past, we’ve seen while we incorporate the front-facing camera into a function key down at the bottom.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

So let’s talk about, the MacBook Air simply isn’t as powerful plus it relies on the processes integrated graphics chip there’s no dedicated graphics card here like the much faster NVIDIA MX 150 that you get with the Asus Swift 3 the Isuzu buck 3. Microsoft version of the MacBook Air also comes with an i-5 and eight gigs of ram so it’s similarly Specht and these are the results from Geekbench 4 and while the MacBook Air seems to be around 10% faster in single-core the service laptop – isn’t only 50% faster in multi-core.

CONCLUSION

Huawei matebook 13:

To conclude that the mate book 13, I love it I think it’s a great 13-inch laptop. You need to understand the proline, how certain features this won’t have Thunderbolt 3 support quad speakers, but then again you’re going to get better performance out of this whiskey Lake processor. I know a lot of you are looking at the 2018 version because you can get it at a discount for the same price. You can get this mate book 13, $12.99 in fact at mat Amazon right now you can get them a Pokedex Pro for $1,300, which to me is a steal now in its own right this is a really good laptop.

Apple MacBook Air (2018):

MacBook Air is great the SSD storage is fast and you get the latest Mac OS. Mohave software, I really like the new dark mode you get in Mohave. Apple had put a faster processor in it, but it’s still very good and I highly recommend it especially over the MacBook you can stop by the old MacBook Air for nine hundred and fifty pounds.
