Sentiment Score[*] 74%
Reviewers from Expertreviews have found the following[***]:
The MateBook 13 is one of the fastest laptops we've tested with a Core i7-10510U. It has discrete Nvidia graphics, a fast M.2 SSD and 16GB of RAM. The only two physical connectors here are USB-C, with one on either side. It's a nice laptop, but it lacks the killer punch that everyone else's is.

The AMD version has the faster RAM and, according to the manufacturer, shorter battery life. With the Realtek 8822CE, the MateBook 13 (2020) has a Wi-Fi 5 WLAN module that works in both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz networks. One practical feature is Huawei Share, which is compatible with Huawei smartphones starting from EMUI 8.0.
