Reviewers from t3 have found the following***:
The Huawei MateBook X for 2020 is one of the best-looking Windows 10 laptops we've seen. It's beautifully designed and built, and comes with a superb screen (as well as top-quality audio) The typing and touchpad experiences are well above average too, and thanks to its compact dimensions and fanless design, it's just about the perfect device to take on the move with you. Is it the right laptop for you though? There's no doubt it's expensive – more to do with the quality of the materials used to make it and the display than the specs inside.

The MateBook X runs a full version of Windows 10 with no compromises or missing features. You'll continue to receive updates and software support from Microsoft no matter what. Huawei Share lets you share files between a Huawei or Honor phone and your laptop. It's genuinely one of the best ecosystem implementations around, but it does hinge on using a current Huawei phone.
