This laptop comes with a 14.2 inch 3120 x 2080p LTPS LCD display screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz, an aspect ratio of 3:2, and a screen-to-body ratio of 92%.

Are They Really Worth The Hype?
In this article, we have looked at the specs of these machines and from the looks of things, we can say they are actually worth the hype. Or let’s say the Matestation X, yes. But the Matebook X Pro, not so much.
The Huawei Matestation X is a great all-in-one desktop and can be said to arguably be the best all-in-one monitor that runs on windows currently. It’s not completely as great as the Apple iMac if we’re being honest but it’s really close. I guess we can say It’s worth the price
The Huawei Matebook X Pro, on the other hand, is also a very nice laptop with impressive specs but for that price, you’ll probably expect more. It’s kind of overpriced. You’d get a laptop with better performance for a cheaper price.
It still doesn’t rule out the fact that it’s a very nice laptop anyways.
One common thing about these two machines to take note of is that they are really good for work. They’ll do great at multi-tasking or handling heavy-duty tasks.
Whether you should buy either of these machines depends on your budget or what you’re looking for in a PC. Although, I wouldn’t exactly call them budget PCs to be honest. However, they’re still very good machines that should satisfy your needs or not.
Is The Huawei Matestation X Great For Gaming?
No. Not really. Well if you don’t intend to play really high demanding games and just want to play casual or low demanding games. Then you shouldn’t have a problem. But if you have the intention of playing current flagship games or need a monitor just for gaming, then this is not the PC for you. For a price range of $2500 -$3000, you’ll get some of the best gaming PCs for even lesser.
Is The Huawei Matestation X Great For Work?
Yes!!!!! This is a great desktop for all kinds of work. it’ll handle every one of your tasks efficiently without any kind of hiccups. Apart from the fact that it’ll look really elegant and great on your office desk, it’ll also perform great.
Is The Huawei Matebook X Pro Great For Gaming?
Oh No. It’s not. You do not want this as your gaming laptop. This laptop is more of a working laptop. But for gaming, not so much. If you’re a professional gamer, you shouldn’t even consider this laptop. For the same price range or even lesser, you’ll get laptops that’ll give you a way better gaming experience than this laptop in every way.
Is The Huawei Matebook X Pro Good For Work?
Yes, the Huawei Matebook X Pro is a good laptop for all kinds of work and would be able to multitask and handle heavy tasks without having any problems. However, this laptop is somewhat over-priced and you can get a laptop for work that’ll offer the same level of performance at a cheaper price. Still, it’s a great laptop for work.
As you can see they’re both great devices for work and gaming? Not so much.
Stick around as we compare these devices to others and how they stack up in different criteria like the design, aesthetics, looks, and performance.
