Once in a long while though, you see a laptop that sets your heart aflutter and makes for an absolute head turner that is head and shoulders above the competition. The new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 is just one such laptop.

What is the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024

Launched earlier in China, the MateBook X Pro 2024 that is now on preorder in Malaysia is the HUAWEI’s latest ultraportable laptop that is the successor to their earlier model that was launched in 2022 with significantly improved performance and refinements in design that make it lighter than ever before while making it the most powerful ultraportable that HUAWEI has ever made.

In Malaysia, the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 comes with a 14.2-inch 3.1K Flexible OLED X-True touch display with a 120Hz refresh rate and professional-grade colour accuracy, the latest Intel® Core™ Ultra 9 processor, a whopping 32GB RAM, a massive 2TB SSD and Intel Arc graphics ensconced within a wonderfully slim chassis done up in a beautiful shade of Morandi Blue.

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 for Malaysia comes in a beautiful shade of Morandi Blue or White

A more affordable variant is also available in a shade of White with otherwise similar specifications along with the same quality display and Intel Arc graphics but which uses the Intel® Core™ Ultra 7 processor, has 16GB RAM and has 1TB of storage. 

What makes the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 a feat of engineering is the fact that it is as slim as it is powerful. That’s just scratching the surface of why it’s one of the most desirable laptops of 2024. Here’s why the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 is truly love at first sight… 

HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 – Exceptionally Light and Slim Design

The next-generation HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 is one of the lightest designs in the market at just 980g while being just 13.5mm thin. It’s so light that it can effectively be held with just two fingers!

To achieve these exceptional weight savings, HUAWEI has pulled every trick in the engineering textbook, eking out painstaking weight savings gram by gram.

Building on the base of an ultralight weight-saving magnesium alloy chassis, every component in the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 has also been upgraded with the use of lighter materials for the keyboard, touchpad, hinges, cooling fans, the speakers and even the new Flexible OLED display too while also being sturdier in the bargain to make, the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 is the market’s lightest Intel® Core™ Ultra 9 laptop which is an impressive feat.

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 implements a huge array of weight saving features along with its magnesium alloy chassis

In order to make it so breathtakingly slim, HUAWEI has eliminated almost every millimetre of unused space in the chassis. To achieve this, the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 implements an unusual Cloud Falcon Architecture design for the printed circuit board (PCB). Rather than just one huge slab of wasted space, the newPCB is split into 3 separate boards, allowing it to take up 8% less space than its predecessor while allowing for larger sized subcomponents such that the laptop packs in a lighter and 22% larger fan, a 17% bigger battery and 22% larger speakers too.

No expense was spared with the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024’s aesthetics as well with the laptop implementing an innovative Micro-arc oxidation (MAO) process on the finish to ensure enhanced wear resistance while offering a sensuously smooth matte finish that is also resistant to stains, fingerprints and scratches too over the ultralight magnesium alloy chassis in your choice of a pleasing light Morandi Blue or a rich White colourway.

HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 – World’s first Flexible OLED display for brilliant colours and detail

The new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024 features a 14.2-inch Flexible OLED X-True touch display, the first of its kind in the market.

Where the display earns its Flexible designation is on account of its unique space-saving design that allows the display driver integrated circuit to be ‘bent’ back to the screen to save more internal chassis space, allowing for an unprecedented and massive 93% screen-to-body ratio and tall 3:2 aspect ratio for the Flexible OLED X-True touch display within the compact dimensions of a traditional 14-inch laptop form factor.

It’s also exceptionally bright as well with a peak brightness of up to 1,000 nits and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio for better visual clarity indoors or outdoors.
