Huawei Is Going Hard at the MacBook Air With Its New MateBook 13
华为推出新款MateBook 13，目标直指MacBook Air
Huawei has only been in the laptop game for a few years now, but following up on the success of systems like the MateBook X Pro, Huawei is expanding its notebook portfolio with the new MateBook 13.
华为涉足笔记本电脑领域只有几年时间，但继MateBook X Pro等系列获得成功之后，华为又推出了新款MateBook 13，以扩大其笔记本电脑业务。
Starting at $1000 for an Intel Core i5-8265U CPU, 8GB of RAM, 256GB PCIe SSD and 13-inch 2160 x 1440 touchscreen in mystic silver, the MateBook 13 is the company’s new mainstream laptop aimed squarely at taking down the new MacBook Air. Like the MateBook X Pro, the MateBook 13 features an all-aluminum body with styling clearly inspired by what Apple has been doing for years.
MateBook 13的起价为1000美元，搭载英特尔酷睿i5-8265U处理器、8G内存、256G存储空间，13英寸触屏，分辨率为2160 x 1440。MateBook 13是该公司最新的主流笔记本电脑，其目标直指MacBook Air。和MateBook X Pro一样，MateBook 13也是全铝机身，设计灵感明显受苹果启发。
When I got to play with the MateBook 13 at a briefing for CES, a Huawei spokesperson even bragged that weighing in at 2.8 pounds and measuring 0.59-inches thick, the MateBook 13 is both thinner and lighter than the new MacBook Air. However, because the MateBook doesn’t sport the Air’s tapered wedge-shaped design, it doesn’t feel quite that slim. Instead, it feels like it’s a much closer match to the standard 13-inch MacBook Pro.
在CES的发布会上，华为的一名发言人称，MateBook 13重2.8磅，厚度为0.59英寸，比新款MacBook Air更薄更轻。然而，由于MateBook不具MacBook Air的楔形设计，它看起来并没有那么轻薄，反而更接近13英寸的MacBook Pro。
That said, Huawei hasn’t gone full Apple clone, as the MateBook retains a traditional chiclet-style keyboard that’s more pleasant to type on than anything in Apple’s lineup, along with a handy power button that has built-in fingerprint reader so you can turn on the system and log into Windows with a single touch.
华为并没有完全克隆苹果, MateBook保留传统的巧克力键盘，打字比苹果系列更为舒适, MateBook还有一个方便的电源按钮，内置指纹读取器，轻轻一触就可以打开系统登录Windows。
Inside, Huawei claims it has boosted the MateBook 13's cooling with its new dual-fan Sharkfin 2.0 cooling system. Huawei says its fans move 25 percent more air than the blowers on a typical laptop, which should be a big help for anyone who upgrades to the MateBook 13's optional $1,300 config which features a Core i7-8565U CPU, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of SSD storage, and an Nvidia MX150 GPU with 2GB of VRAM.
在内部，华为称其新推出的双扇鲨鱼鳍2.0冷却系统提高了MateBook 13的冷却性能，风量较传统风扇提升25%。MateBook 13顶配售价1300美元，配置酷睿i7-8565U 处理器, 8G内存, 512G存储，英伟达MX150 GPU和2GBVRAM。
Some might question Huawei’s choice only to feature two USB-C ports on the MateBook 13, which is a bit odd considering that there was probably room for more and that MateBook X Pro comes with one USB-A and USB-C port each. So to make up for that, every MateBook 13 will come bundled with a MateBook Dock 2 for free (that normally costs around $70), which expands connectivity via a USB Type-A, HDMI, Ethernet, and VGA ports.
一些人可能会质疑华为MateBook 13只有两个USB-C端口，这有点奇怪，因为MateBook X Pro有一个USB-A和USB-C端口。因此，为了弥补这一点，MateBook 13将免费附带MateBook Dock 2(通常售价约70美元)，通过USB type a、HDMI、以太网和VGA端口扩展连接。
All in all, the MateBook 13 looks like a solid and more affordable alternative to one of my favorite laptops of 2018, though I do have two smallish concerns. The first is that the MateBook 13's screen is only rated at about 300 nits, which is about average for a $1,000 laptop. When you compare that to the superb brightness, dense 3000 x 2000 resolution, and vibrant colors you get on the MateBook X Pro’s screen, it’s a little disappointing. That screen was was easily one of its best features. While the MateBook 13's display looks fine, it’s not nearly as good.
总而言之，MateBook 13看起来是可靠而且更实惠的替代品，不过我有两个小小的担忧。首先，MateBook 13的屏幕评级仅为300尼特左右，对于一台售价1,000美元的笔记本电脑来说，这是一个平均水平。当你将其与MateBook x Pro的超高亮度、3000x2000的高分辨率和鲜艳的色彩进行比较时，你会觉得有点失望。屏幕无疑是MateBook x Pro最好的功能之一。虽然MateBook 13的显示效果看起来不错，但远没有MateBook x Pro那么好。
My second concern is that Huawei rates the MateBook 13's battery life at just 9.6 hours for the model with Nvidia graphics, or about 10 hours for the standard config. It’s possible that Huawei is just being conservative with its projections, but if those numbers hold true, that means the MateBook 13 might only end up with just mediocre or slightly above average longevity in the real world.
我的第二个担忧是，华为评测搭载英伟达显卡的MateBook 13电池续航时间仅为9.6小时，标准配置为10小时左右。华为的评测可能还是保守的，但如果这些数字属实，这意味着MateBook 13的平均寿命仅为中等或略高于平均水平。。
That said, with a release date set for January 29th, we won’t have to wait too long to find out how the MateBook 13 performs for real. And as an alternative to the new MacBook Air, Huawei’s attempt at a mainstream 13-inch laptop with Windows is looking pretty good.
随着1月29日发布日期的确定，用不了多久我们就能知道MateBook 13的真实性能。作为新一代MacBook Air的替代品，华为在主流13英寸Windows笔记本电脑上的尝试看起来相当不错。

Can Huawei create name that not similar to our Apple products?
But it is still a Windows machine and will be outdated within a year and will run really slow within 2 years and replaced within 3 years. If you need to update the operating system that will cost you extra every time.
They can sell a lot of these in China...Who aboard want a notebook with Chinese monitor capabilities?
This whole "article" is just an ad for this new Chinese laptop. "Huawei Is Going Hard at the MacBook Air With Its New MateBook"? How can any PC or Laptop that is running Windows be any more of a challenge to a Mac than any other PC or laptop running windows? It doesn't matter who makes it, it's still running windows, therefore it is not a Mac and no threat to Apple.

Wonder how much of inside electronics is copied from MacBook? No IP protection in China. We as a country need to fix that.
I was in China last year and checked out numerous Huawei retail shops. Their staff wore red shirts, jeans and their stores had floor-to-ceiling clear windows, large print ads of their products hanging, long wooden tables holding a handful of their products, items neatly stacked on shelves on the wall, a handful of stools and their own service area buzzing with activity. In other words, the Huawei store strongly resembles that of an Apple store. They even copied the store layout.
It could be the best product ever. I won’t buy it tho. It’s Huawei,
China products = copy Cat. No thank you.
Buying only Chinese products. We all should support that great country
Still no thanks and not welcomed here in the US
Its pretty clear that because Apples prices are non-competitive, Huawei is the future of home computing. Apple is unaffordable.

Stop saying every laptop is a macbook.
Why so many positive articles about Huawei lately, Yahoo?

Sad thing is, this is actually a better laptop than the air minus the webcam position and fan noise
Yes, indeed... Word on the street is that they are changing the name fro huawei to Mapple.
Lots of people worried about Huawei spying. They should. I ordered pizza on my huawei phone and a guy delivered Chinese takeout instead.
Huawei's success should be a good thing. So the US is not the only dominator in the world.
LOL How orginal
If you think Huawei copies Apple then Apple copies 5G technology from Huawei.

Chinese product article on yahoo. Some reporters are actually the enemy of the people.

The name MateBook Pro says is all.
