Huawei is starting the new year by launching a new MateBook 14. If this sounds somewhat familiar, that's because we tested the AMD version of this notebook earlier this year in our Great Ultraportable Notebook Shootout.

This is essentially the same notebook but with an Intel processor within. This means it has a 14-inch IPS display that has a 3:2 aspect ratio and a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. 

In terms of specifications, you will be getting the following:

  • Intel Core i5-1135G7
  • 8GB memory
  • 512GB SSD
  • Intel Iris Xe graphics

It's not going to get hearts racing but it should more than suffice for browsing the web, watching videos, productivity tasks, and light content creation.

As for ports, it has one USB-C port that supports USB 3.2 Gen 2, two USB-A USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports, and a full-size HDMI port.

The USB-C port needs to fulfil charging duties so some sort of a dongle or hub is going to be required if you plan on using USB-C accessories with the notebook. Another shortcoming worth noting is the lack of support for Wi-Fi 6 – only Wi-Fi 5, sadly.

 

**Update on 26 April 2022**

Huawei has just announced a new variant that has double the memory - 16GB. The processor and storage remains the same, so you get a Core i5-1135G7 processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics and a 512GB SSD.

 

Availability and pricing

The Huawei MateBook 14 in the above-mentioned configuration will go on sale on 8 January 2022 for S$1,298.

The Huawei MateBook 14 is on sale now. The version with 8GB of memory is S$1,298.

The newer variant with 16GB of memory is available now at a special promo price of S$1,398 (U.P S$1,498). It will come with free gifts worth S$371 including a Huawei backpack, Huawei FreeLace headphones, a Bluetooth mouse, a USB flash drive, and a one-year warranty extension.
