An interesting laptop with Ryzen 5. Is one of the first that I am seeing and the design and what is offering is incredible for the price of around 620$. Huawei MateBook D looks like an Apple MacBook Pro but without the high price. The laptop is easy and nice looking and is having a touch screen display which is Full HD.
The Ryzen 5 2500U CPU is doing a good job in games for a low laptop and is perfect for day to day activities like browsing the net, doing some work or watching some movies.
Below you can see one off the feedbacks of a customer:
I love this laptop. The display is beautiful, the boot up time is lightning fast. It’s touch screen. Backlit keyboard, chiclet keyboard. I rarely mess up typing on this thing. The speed is amazing I’m so happy with this laptop. One thing to be aware of, the keyboard has some sort of feature to where if you’re not using the keypad within 15 seconds the backlight will go off. When you press a key it lights up again. It looks identical to a MacBook but this is better. The USB C is great too. My phone and Nintendo switch also use the same port. If you’re interested in this laptop, get it!!!!
