Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The case of the MateBook 16 hardly heats up during everyday tasks/low loads. Only when the CPU is under continuous full load will the fans become very audible. The sound created by the two stereo speakers next to the keyboard is surprisingly loud and full-bodied. While the competing Dell XPS 15 has slightly better speakers, these tend to overdrive in certain cases.
