The Huawei MateBook D14 Is The Perfect Laptop For Christmas

Powerful, stylish, and affordable

2020 has been a great year for PCs, and recent events have shown that almost every modern Filipino family needs a powerful yet affordable laptop in their home. Multiple lockdowns, homeschooling, and work-from-home requirements have had many households scrambling for a dependable laptop that won’t break the bank – and many have already made the choice to get Huawei’s MateBook D14. All of that simply means that the MateBook D14 is the perfect laptop to get for yourself or a family member this Christmas: you’re getting a lot of great features at a price that won’t empty your bank account.

For one thing, it’s one of the few laptops in its price range that has an aluminum chassis. While offerings of other brands have plastic lids and chassis, the MateBook D14 has a metal chassis and lid, giving it more durability for everyday use VS other brands.

The 14-inch display is a happy medium for both WFH and LFH setups and isn’t too big that it makes the laptop unwieldy when you have to take it with you when it’s safe to go out again. The screen’s size and aspect ratio make it perfect for both work and play, thanks to its 84% screen-to-body ratio. The display is also TUV Rheinland certified – a fancy way of saying it filters out harmful blue light to reduce eye strain when using the laptop for an extended period of time.

Huawei’s technologies also make it easy to share and collaborate with the laptop thanks to Huawei Share. You only need to tap your Huawei phone on the NFC tag on the side to send documents like spreadsheets and PDFs to colleagues, classmates, and teachers. No need for complicated and ugly screenshot sharing through messenger or emailing yourself links – just tap and go. Thanks to Huawei Share, you can also make and receive phone calls from your phone directly to the laptop and route it to a TWS headphone like say, the Freedbuds 3i. Likewise, you can also interact with your phone directly on the laptop’s screen without having to root around for it – all without the need for an active internet connection.

You also don’t have to worry about other people messing with your laptop, as the MateBook D14 has a nifty fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button.

Thanks to the AMD Ryzen 3000 series processors (Ryzen 5 3500U/Ryzen 7 3700U) the MateBook D14 is capable of punching above its weight class when it comes to sheer number crunching. The powerful processors and Vega 8 graphics mean that it’s able to handle all the productivity, educational and editing tasks you throw at it and still has enough processing power to spare to help you rank up in competitive FPS games like Valorant and CS: Go.

And when it’s finally safe to go out, the laptop’s incredible battery endurance (more than 8 hours on a single charge according to our tests) will be more than enough to get you through a busy workday. A small and unassuming 65W fast charger will be able to get the laptop back in action if you do manage to drain its battery.

At just Php 42,990 for the Ryzen 7 version and just Php 37,990 for the Ryzen 5 variant, the MateBook D14 is a great laptop for students and home workers that are looking to upgrade this Christmas. Huawei’s also throwing in a couple of additional freebies when you buy the MateBook D14 until November 25: you’re getting a Freebuds 3i worth Php 5,990 and a free Huawei Backpack. There are also installment plans available starting from 12 months with zero interest payments from major banks as well.

Starting November 27, each purchase of the Huawei MateBook D14 comes with a FREE Entertainment Gift Box worth Php 2,099 as well.

The MateBook D14 is sleek, powerful, and affordable – all the things you want in a laptop for the new normal.
