Huawei has a new wallet-friendly 14-inch notebook. Say hello to the new MateBook D 14.

Like the MateBook 14 that was launched earlier this year, the MateBook D 14 is attractively priced at just S$1,098.

So what do you get for your money?

For a start, you have a relatively thin and light notebook that's just 15.9mm thick and 1.38kg heavy.

The 14-inch Full-HD IPS display has thin bezels that give it a screen-to-body ratio of 84%.

Inside, the MateBook D 14 is powered by an Intel Core i5-10210U processor with 8GB of memory and a 512GB SSD. It also has discrete graphics in the form of NVIDIA's GeForce MX250.

Sure, it's not cutting-edge but it's more than enough to run your regular productivity apps and even games (as long as you dial back the graphics settings).

In terms of ports, you get a single USB-C port, two USB-A ports (one USB 3.0, one USB 2.0), and a full-size HDMI port. Sadly, there's no memory card reader.

Battery capacity is 56Wh and Huawei claims that's good for up to 13.2 hours of continuous video playback.

The Huawei MateBook D 14 will go on sale from 20 February 2021 and it's priced at S$1,098.

To celebrate the launch, customers will receive a gift bundle worth S$243 that includes a Huawei backpack, a USB flash drive, a Huawei Bluetooth speaker, and a one-year extended warranty. 

Customers who buy from Huawei Experience Stores will also receive free Kaspersky Internet Security Software worth S$40.95.

On the other hand, customers who purchase from Best Denki, Challenger, Hachi.tech, Courts, and Gain City will receive a one-year subscription to Microsoft 365 Personal worth S$108.

The promotion is valid until 31 March 2021.
