Social distancing has obviously transformed how most people conduct their lives, especially for those so used to leaving home for school or work. However, thanks to modern technology and the internet, productivity is entirely possible with minimal adjustments — having a good laptop, in most cases, makes that transition to online life a lot smoother.
Huawei’s MateBook line is the ideal companion in the new normal, featuring top-tier hardware and smart functionality powerful enough to replicate a school or office environment entirely online. Students, professionals, business owners and the like can certainly benefit from owning a Huawei MateBook 13 or MateBook D14, in particular.
Huawei MateBook 13: High-end power in a compact frame
Nothing says #MoreThanFullView, better than 2K touch display like the FullView panel on the MateBook 13. This super high-resolution touchscreen expands productivity opportunities, perfect for collaborative work (doodle-based editing) and manipulating app elements that are too clunky for traditional mouse/touchpad inputs.
For creative types working from home, the Matebook 13 has more than enough power for visual-heavy tasks thanks to the built-in Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics card. This dedicated GPU with 2GB memory enables a full-suite photo and video editing experience not possible on most ultrabooks.
Battery life on the MateBook 13 is stellar as well, providing up to 9 hours of basic office-type work on a single charge. Having a 41.7Wh battery is a definite plus for users who like to take their work beyond their “official” workspaces — whether it’s the kitchen countertop, the living room couch, or the refreshing backyard bench.
Huawei MateBook D14: Productivity at full throttle
Dubbed as the #MateBookForTheYouthPH, the MateBook D14 sports a 1080p FullView Display with minimal bezels, coming to 84% screen-to-body ratio. The expansive screen displays more content that’s ideal for online learning; students can easily fit multiple video call windows during online classes, enjoy effortless visibility on their educational materials, and other similar scenarios.
Business owners who operate online know the value of swift response time, whether it’s answering customer queries, updating catalogues/inventories, or processing orders at a moment’s notice. The AMD Ryzen 5 CPU on the MateBook D14 fulfills that need for rapid access and performance which, thanks to the built-in SSD and 8GB of RAM, minimizes downtime so the laptop is always ready to go.
Another must-have feature on the MateBook D14 for home-based users is the 720p recessed camera. This front-facing lens is cleverly integrated on the keyboard, accessed by pressing the camera key to provide clear video call resolution while ensuring privacy once online meetings are over.
Shared MateBook features: Fingerprint login and Huawei Share
The MateBook line incorporates intuitive uses of hardware and software, exemplified by the Fingerprint Login button and Huawei Share. Users can power on and unlock their MateBook 13 or MateBook D14 with one press of the dedicated button, letting them enjoy an extra layer of protection and privacy.
Huawei Share with OneHop takes multi-device collaboration to another level, enabling users to wirelessly sync their Huawei phone to their MateBook and easily drag-and-drop files between devices. Moreover, the screen sharing feature allows access to the phone’s apps and functions without leaving the laptop screen.
Working or studying from home should never be an inconvenient prospect, especially when there are tools like the Huawei MateBook 13 and MateBook D14 to bridge that socially-distanced gap. Get a MateBook today and discover an empowering life in the new normal.
