Huawei unveils its 2019 Matebook offering

Huawei has announced an imminent refresh of its flagship Matebook X Pro, plus two other new laptops, at their Mobile World Congress 2019 press conference.

The new second-generation Matebook X Pro, which boasts the same name and branding as its predecessor, features slightly sharper bezels (91% screen-to-body ratio versus the 90% found in the original Matebook), 8th Gen intel processors, Nvidia MX250 graphics and a slick 13-inch 3K touchscreen display. The new laptop also preserves the concealed camera of the original, which Huawei say they’ve received positive consumer feedback around.

Portwise, the new Matebook X Pro boasts a single USB 3.1 port, two USB type-C ports (either of which can be used for power) and a headphone jack.

The other detail that Huawei are talking up here is a new software feature that will allow Huawei phone users to easily and quickly pair their device with the new Matebook X Pro and pass photos, files and video via Bluetooth. You can even copy something to your clipboard on your phone and then paste it on your laptop.

Huawei also announced two new, less premium, notebooks: the Matebook 13 and Matebook 14. This new series of devices will sit between the high-end X Pro and the Matebook D lineup. Both laptops boast 2K displays with super-thin bezels, pop-up webcams, 8th gen Intel processors, Nvidia MX250 graphics and a 57.4Wh battery.

There's also a touch screen variant of the Matebook 13 available.

There’s no word yet on Australian pricing or availability for either the second-generation Matebook X Pro or the Matebook 13 and Matebook 14.

What does this mean to consumers? It means that the Huawei Matebook X Pro probably won’t be the only Huawei laptop you can buy in Australia for much longer.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office continues to make a student’s life that little bit easier by offering reliable, easy to use, time-saving functionality, while continuing to develop new features that further enhance what is already a formidable collection of applications

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
