(Pocket-lint) - Huawei has seen huge growth in its laptop business since it broke in the market in recent years. The MateBook family - and the MateBook X Pro especially - have been well-received with Huawei challenging incumbent players in the Windows notebook market.
Continuing this momentum, Huawei is updating the MateBook family with a new version of the MateBook X Pro. This new model continues a familiar design story - thin, light, a display with practically no bezel - and a great keyboard with pop-up camera, and refreshes the internals, with a newer Intel Core i7 8565U CPU or i5 8265U, both with Nvidia GeForce MX250 GPU.
The MateBook X Pro seems to want to be the best Windows 10 laptop out there - every bit the rival to the MacBook Pro - and it might just achieve that.
But it's not just about the X Pro. We saw the MateBook 13 at CES 2019 and there's a MateBook 14 to sit alongside it, or rather above it, and it looks like the old MateBook D family is no more.
The new MateBook 14 takes the 13 experience up a notch, offering the Nvidia MX250 GPU as a graphics option. The MateBook 14 gets the pop-up camera from the MateBook X Pro, so it's something of a compromise device, sitting between the two models.
You also get a boosted range of connectivity. There's USB Type-C, a 3.5mm headphone socket and, remarkably, HDMI for connecting to external displays. On the other side the MateBook 14 gets USB Type-A 2.0 and 3.0. Why it can't pick a standard and stick to it we don't know - but there's no shortage of options.
All the MateBook models get that big trackpad, touchscreen display with Huawei gestures, and a fingerprint power button.
Prices and availability for all the models are still to be revealed.
