Bringing to the table incredible processing with an eighth-generation Intel Core i5 CPU, NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, and a battery life of up to 12 hours is the 14” Huawei Volta-W50D MateBook D – priced at $963.61. Available in an elegant “mystic silver” color with a weight of only 3.5lbs and a thickness of 0.62”, it is a highly portable device that lets you make the most of life wherever you happen to be. This latest offering from the Huawei family also has an innovative one-touch power button that senses your fingerprint to allow you to log in to your machine.
Undoubtedly, the eighth-generation Intel Core processor (up to 3.4GHz) is speedy and powerful – adequate for most of your everyday needs. It is complemented by 8GB RAM, 256GB of storage space (solid state), and a bloatware-free Windows 10 Signature Edition. While the battery backup varies largely with your usage, you can count on a fairly long period of unplugged use on the 57.4Whr battery. Plus, Huawei employs an innovative power-saving technology that ups your power usage efficiency by 15%, thus saving you money and buying you time.
What You See, What You Get
When you behold the new Huawei Volta-W50D MateBook D, you see a classy, slim machine. Thankfully, the display turns out to be as good as the exterior – a full High-Definition touchscreen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. The dedicated NVIDIA graphics card has 2GB of dedicated memory, and this renders the imagery bright, clear and accurate. Since the bezel is incredibly thin (only 5.2mm), you witness a dive-deep-down experience whether you’re watching movies or browsing through photo albums.
Note that the sound system also complements the viewing experience beautifully. Dolby ATMOS quad-speakers set to adapt to different frequencies create an (almost) surround-sound effect. When you playback content, the sound seems to flow from above and around you, akin to what you’d experience in a home theatre.
Accessibility, Connectivity & Device Support
This computer is fitted with one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.0 port to allow you to connect to any devices/peripherals. It also supports 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi for wireless networking.
In terms of accessibility, the one-touch power button is especially handy, offering an attractive package of security and convenience. Thanks to this standout feature, the portability of this thin, lightweight machine gets further enhanced.
The full-size, backlit keyboard is also a huge help in lending mobility to this device. Not only does it allow you to work in variable lighting conditions, but its size is actually the largest of its kind as far as 14” notebooks go.
