MateBook X Pro 2020

Incredibly narrow bezels — Huawei talks of a ‘borderless experience’ — set the 13.9-inch screen in a chassis that’s just 304mm wide and 217mm tall. It’s impressively thin too — 14.6mm at the back, tapering to a narrower front edge. The weight is 1.33kg, which is heavier than some ultraportables, but perfectly manageable. An obvious comparison is the Dell XPS 13 2020, which weighs in at 1.2kg, albeit with a slightly smaller (13.4 inch) screen.
Huawei provides a pretty minimal set of on-board ports and connectors. There’s a single USB-3.0 port on the right edge, while the left edge houses a 3.5mm headset jack and two USB-C ports with support for data, charging, and DisplayPort. One of these USB-C ports is used for charging.
