Laptops have become even more commonplace now at home because of remote learning. If you’re an older sibling, you have the big task of sharing not just your laptop with younger siblings but also how technology works. To help you get started, the all-new HUAWEI MateBook 14 and HUAWEI MateBook D 15 i3 have some impressive specs that will make your teachable moments that much more informative.
A decent screen is a key factor
In our increasingly technology-centered world, knowing how to spot a great laptop is an important skill. If you have younger siblings, here’s an opportunity to expand their tech knowledge. Start off by taking them through the importance of a decent screen.
The HUAWEI MateBook 14 has a 2K HUAWEI FullView Display with Multi-touch option. This allows users to interact with the device accurately, freely, smoothly and intuitively. The HUAWEI MateBook 14 also features the signature 3:2 aspect ratio, meaning it is three units wide for every two units across (the units are pixels).
The HUAWEI MateBook 14 has a bezel-less screen with a high 90% screen-to-body ratio. A bezel includes everything on the front of the laptop such as the camera. However, having a reduced bezel means more screen, which is great especially for a slim machine like the HUAWEI MateBook 14. The MateBook D 15 i3, on the other hand, features a 16:9 aspect ratio and recessed camera. The top and side bezels are only 5.3mm thick, resulting in an 87% screen to body ratio. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 i3 has a 15.6-inch, 1080p FHD IPS screen with anti-glare protection, while offering a wide viewing angle of 178°, resulting in a clear and vivid display.
Powerful and long-lasting battery life
When it comes to charging a device, younger siblings aren’t usually known to prioritise this. Think of how many times they’ve forgotten to charge their cellphones before going on a family trip. So, the possibility of them doing the same thing to their laptops is high. But, thanks to the 11-hour long battery life of the MateBook 14, that won’t be a problem.
The compact HUAWEI MateBook 14 features a 56Wh battery (Rated value). In order to pack such a large battery into the small chassis, Huawei had to carefully plan how each and every internal component was placed in the notebook, making sure it had enough space for the battery. The HUAWEI MateBook 14 also has a self-developed system for intelligent energy-saving management, process management and background apps management. The system can automatically and intelligently allocate resources for applications based on the analysis of user behaviours. A longer battery life means you and your younger siblings can play 1080P videos on your laptop for up to 14.7 hours. You can also help them do their schoolwork for 13.6 hours or browse webpages for 10.7 hours.
For a more wireless experience, you’ll love the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 i3, which uses a 65W USB-C charger with detachable cables, making the charger much more portable. It can also be used to charge other Huawei smartphones and tablets that are equipped with a USB-C port. In addition, the cable supports data transmission.
Fast and competent performance
A fast laptop is first prize because nobody enjoys working on a slow machine, especially when you’re busy doing assignments or catching up on your favourite series. The HUAWEI MateBook 14’s 11th Generation Intel Core processor enables the laptop to be more responsive and efficient for productivity tasks such as virtual lectures. In addition to the processor upgrade, the HUAWEI MateBook 14 is equipped with up to 16 GB dual channel RAM. With its huge memory, worrying about storage will be a thing of the past. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 i3 is equally impressive, thanks to its intel processor to ensure it delivers top performance across various activities, whether you use it for work or play.
Both the HUAWEI MateBook 14 and HUAWEI MateBook D 15 i3 offer a brand-new way for Interconnectivity via Huawei Share. If you’re constantly moving files between Windows and Android devices, Huawei Share allows for a more connected experience, facilitating the transfer of data without the need for clunky cables or third-party software. Multi-Screen Collaboration, a function of HUAWEI Share, makes this experience even simpler and more integrated.
Usually younger siblings are the ones who have their finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest tech trends but let your knowledge of the HUAWEI MateBook 14 and HUAWEI MateBook D 15 i3 shine the spotlight on you for once.
