The reality of the “new normal” of the past 18 months means that people need to work from wherever they can instead of heading into an office. Remote working, or working from home, is something that weve all had to adjust to and requires the correct hardware. While a new notebook could set you back quite a bit, Huawei has affordable options. The latest is the MateBook D 15 i3, which is available for R10,999, including free accessories worth R2,799.
This new offering is part of a line-up of refreshed notebooks from the company, including the MateBook 14, among others.
A great value-for-money deal, the D 15 i3 delivers a full spectrum of features you need if you work from home.
Starting with the FullView display, a large 15.6" FullHD (1920x1080) screen is front and centre thanks to an impressive 87% screen-to-body ratio. The slim bezels are matched by an equally elegant metal chassis that is lightweight at 1.53kg.
The large screen real estate also lends itself to the collaboration tools that Huawei has integrated into the ecosystem of the MateBook range, including the ability to share content from one Huawei device to another seamlessly and sans cables, thanks to Huawei Share.
Other handy tools include the power button with integrated fingerprint sensor, adding a layer of security to the D 15 i3 and ensuring prying eyes don’t get access to your device.
With a 10th Generation Core i3-10110U processor doing the heavy lifting, the MateBook also has an integrated graphics card, 8GB of RAM and 256GB NVMe PCIe SSD. The latter delivers rapid response times and ensures the D 15 i3 has a combination of speed and power.
While the notebook is likely to remain desk-bound given the current climate, should portability be a consideration down the line, the MateBook D 15 i3 has a 42Wh battery that yields up to eight hours of battery life. So if you need to work on the go or power is unreliable in your area, the D 15 i3 will not leave you hanging.
For those entering the second half of 2021 in need of an affordable Windows 10-powered notebook, the Huawei MateBook D 15 i3 is too good an option to pass up.
The Huawei MateBook D 15 i3 is available to purchase via the Huawei online store, as well as retailers such as Incredible Connection, Takealot, Vodacom and MTN.
