Despite years of working on a laptop, I’ve somehow managed to eschew thin and lightweight “ultrabooks” for the added bulk of what I believed to be proper power-user laptops. Mainly, as image editing is a massive part of my job, I’ve always struggled with the concept of working on anything less than a 16-inch screen when away from my desktop monitors. However, I’ve changed my mind after spending some time with the new HUAWEI MateBook X Pro 2024.

For starters, the MateBook X Pro (2024) is wonderfully built. It’s eminently portable, weighing just 980g and reaching 13.5mm at its thickest point. The downside of my more familiar bulky, powerful laptops has always been extra weight in the bag, but the MateBook X Pro (2024) won’t weigh you down on the daily commute.
