Despite being a somewhat copy of the MacBook Air (2020), the MateBook 13 (2020) shows great performance, thanks to its impressive cooling design.
1. Remove the bottom plate
Okay, Huawei, we haven’t played this game with you before, but there is a first time for everything, right? Like HP loves to do, there are four hidden Phillips-head screws, in addition to the 6 Torx screws. In order to find them, grab your plastic pry tool and remove all four rubber feet. After you undo all of the screws, just pry the panel away.
2. Battery, storage, and memory
Since there is not much space inside, Huawei only managed to put a 41.7Wh battery. Sadly, but unsurprisingly, you won’t be able to upgrade your memory. All you can do is pick the largest 16GB version upon purchase. On the other side, you have one M.2 PCIe x4 slot.
3. Cooling system
If we have to be honest, we are very pleasantly surprised by Huawei’s approach to cooling so far. This notebook features two pretty thick heat pipes, as well as two fans, blowing all of the heat away.
