Huawei MateBook X Pro against Apple MacBook Pro !

Today, these are two safe values ​​that we face face to face: the best ultraportable in Windows, the Huawei MateBook X Pro, versus the latest Apple MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.

The Huawei MateBook X is the best ultraportable we have tested in 2018. Winner of the Digital Star, the PC of the Chinese manufacturer is good at all points. Interestingly, Huawei has never hidden its inspirations from Apple's MacBooks, creating a PC and ending up running Windows. But now it's time to put the MateBook X in front of your model: the MacBook Pro.

Huawei Matebook X ProBoth products are obviously very different in their approach, if only because of their operating system. However, it is interesting to compare them in pure engineering to determine if the student has passed the master's degree.

Both computers have very similar chassis. The same size, both have a unibody aluminum chassis. Huawei has taken over the design logic of Apple, with an elegant hood over which simply highlights its logo. The lines of the PC are also more angular than the MacBook Pro.

It should be noted that the MacBook Pro is a bit thinner than the MateBook (1.4 cm versus 1.5 cm). The two computers, however, have the same weight, that is, 1.3 kg.

Regarding the keyboards of the two PCs, each of them has its qualities. Apple offers here the third generation of its ultra-thin butterfly keyboard. While the previous generation of MacBook has experienced some technical problems at this level, Apple has corrected the shot by adding a protective rubber membrane under the keys. The feeling remains the same, however, with extremely short movements. The MateBook X keyboard is more classic, but still important to use, with hard keys despite the short race. The trackpads of the two computers are excellent.

Each of the two computers has its peculiarity that distinguishes it from the competition. The Matebook X Pro communicates through your webcam. Lack of the screen to cut the edges to the maximum, is actually hidden in a key. Just press to get it out. The advantage is to hide the webcam (in addition to providing a screen without borders) for greater security. However, the angle of view at a low angle is not necessarily ideal during a conversation.

The MacBook Pro, on the other hand, has the touch bar. Designed as a gadget, it is smart to use and adds added value to the device. If macOS uses it intelligently, other applications like Spotify also use it cleverly. Video games are also used, such as Divinity Original Sin 2, which uses it to show certain commands.

Regarding the connection, the two computers adopt a different logic. The MacBook offers four USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports and one connector. The MateBook X Pro, is happy with two USB Type-C Thunderbolt 3 ports, but nevertheless adds a USB 3.0 Type-A very useful.

Finally, the heater is well managed by both computers. In our usual test (Unigine Heaven benchmark for one hour), the MateBook X Pro rises to a surface of 45 ° C versus 42 ° C for the MacBook. If the MacBook is less hot, both ultraportables have an exemplary heat management. Add to this that the MacBook Pro has no fan and therefore remains completely silent. The Matebook X Pro, meanwhile, emits a very contained breath (below 37 dB), but may have a tendency to increase over the years.
