The COVID-19 pandemic has surely turned the world on its head. As we go through yet another day of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), or some other fancy term in another country, the “new normal” is people on their notebooks logging on to Zoom sessions, working from home, participating in webinars, or learning a new skill. On that note, here is how the new Huawei MateBook X Pro flagship notebook can enhance your educational experience.
Thanks to the power of the internet and connectivity, spending more time at home gives us more opportunity to enhance our knowledge or arm ourselves with new skills.
The MateBook X Pro supports Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), the fastest Wi-Fi standard now, coupled with 2×2 MU-MIMO antennas for better signal reception and stable connectivity.
The superfast integrated fingerprint power button lets you get productive without the hassle of keying in your password each time.
Huawei claims a battery life of up to 15 hours from the massive 56Wh battery, and even if you find yourself running low, you can get it charged up quick with the 65W USB-C pocket charger.
All work and no play make Jack a dull boy, so the saying goes. When you’re ready to take a break (and break out a sweat), the MateBook X Pro’s delicious touchscreen 13.9-inch 3K FullView Display with touchscreen will make those bouncing sessions with PopSugar Fitness, intense Pamela Reif HIIT sessions, or daily yoga routines with Adriene Mishler all the
sweatier sweeter. Coupled with the notebook’s quad-speakers, you’ll get an all-round immersive audio-visual experience.
Like me, you may also be spending long hours reading on Medium, or learning via free online courses offered by the likes of Skillshare, Udemy, Coursera, Harvard, Yale, or even Oxford. The MateBook X Pro’s eye comfort mode lets you adjust the screen brightness and tone for the most optimal reading experience while reducing strain on your eyes.
Also, Huawei’s unique MEETime video calling technology can make learning experiences more fun.
In case you need to be on-the-go, you’ll appreciate the notebook’s ultra-thin and ultra-light chassis, measuring just 14.6mm thick and weighing 1.33kg.
What’s great is Huawei Share, which leverages on Huawei’s EMUI 10 distribution technology. The technology allows for easy and convenient file sharing and multi-screen collaboration. All it needs is on tap of your Huawei smartphone on the notebook, then you can start sharing files, images, and videos via drag-and-drop. You can share the smartphone screen on the MateBook X Pro and even answer calls or reply messages from the notebook.
