Both of them are designed for metal fuselage. Among them, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 Ruilong version adopts the design concept of "Pure & Invisible" in the exterior design, the fuselage chooses the metal material with more outstanding texture, and the surface is sprayed with precision ceramic sandblasting technology, which makes the color of the fuselage glossy and introverted. The chamfer is drilled with aviation grade aluminum alloy CNC, which presents a highlight chamfer under the precision milling cutter and shines with the unique luster of the metal against the light. The "HUAWEI" logo is printed on the A side of the fuselage, which brings a high degree of recognition to this product.
By contrast, Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen version of the appearance appears to be relatively simple, low-key. Face A and face C are marked with the logo "Lenovo" to let people know that this is a Lenovo laptop. In addition, the whole machine does not have more identifiable information, which is also in line with the simple concept of this product.
Large area trackpad makes mobile office more convenient
When the editor first got it, he did not find Lenovo's new Pro 13 standard AMD Ryzen version of the power button on the C side of the fuselage. After a search, it was found that Lenovo placed the power button on the side of the fuselage. At the same time, Lenovo integrates facial recognition on the frame of the B side of the fuselage, opens the cover of the computer to boot, and logs in the account through facial recognition after booting. This kind of design is very clever, but users need a certain amount of time to learn and adapt to it.

If you want your laptop to have some stylish features, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 Ruilong version, which is stitched together with a round and smooth curve, will be a better choice.
16:10 vs 3:2: Who is the sharp weapon of the office?
It is said that the eye is the window of the soul, but in the face of poor screen, it will always hurt this window. In the daily office, the use of low-end screen for a long time will lead to eye dryness, swelling, leading to eye fatigue, thus aggravating eye problems. A few years ago, the middle and low-end notebook products were mostly equipped with low-quality screens, not only the display effect was not good enough, but also led to many problems when used for a long time.
But don't worry about the, HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version and the Lenovo new Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen version both equipped with high-quality screens.
Among them, Lenovo's new Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen screen uses four-sided micro-frame technology, so that the screen aspect ratio reaches 16% 10, and the screen occupancy ratio reaches 90%. The screen uses a IPS screen with a high color gamut and a wide viewing angle, with a resolution of 2560x1600 and a sRGB color gamut of 100%. The display is more delicate and the color restoration is more accurate. And the screen has passed the German Rheinland low Blu-ray certification to reduce the damage of the screen to the eyes. In an outdoor environment, Xiaoxin Pro 13 has a brightness of 300nits, and can see the screen clearly even in strong light.
HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version uses a comprehensive screen design, so that a smaller body can have a larger display area. The screen aspect ratio is 3Drex2. Compared with the commonly used 16:9 screen aspect ratio notebook products in the market, no matter in web browsing, photo browsing, video browsing and other scenes, it can achieve no white space on the screen and maximize the screen display.
In terms of screen quality, the, HUAWEI MateBook 13 Ruilong version uses a IPS screen with a resolution of 2160x1440, a 100% sRGB wide color gamut and a contrast of 1000 sRGB 1, which makes the color more accurate, whether watching videos or repairing pictures. In addition, the product also uses Huawei's mature eye protection technology on mobile phones and tablets to filter some harmful blue light to relieve visual fatigue and protect users' eyesight. In the outdoor environment, the brightness also reaches 300 nits, to ensure that the screen content is still visible when the user is used in outdoor bright light.
Performance is only auxiliary, easy to use is the king
For a long time, the editor is not willing to put too much emphasis on the performance of the thin book, just enough to use it. If you have a passion for performance, why not buy a desktop or game book for the same price. At present, whether it is the HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version or the Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen version, they can meet the needs of daily office and mainstream online games.
The HUAWEI MateBook 13 acute dragon version is equipped with AMD's latest Ryzen 53500U processor and integrates Radeon Vega 8 Graphics graphics card. The Ryzen 53500U processor adopts 12nm technology and Zen+ architecture, has four-core and eight-wire threads, and the power consumption of the stable thermal design of the heavy-load scene is up to 18W.
While Lenovo's new Pro 13 standard pressure Rui long version uses Ryzen 53550H standard pressure processor, although marked with standard pressure, you can actually think of it as an overclocked version of Ryzen 53500U, using four-core and eight-wire threads to integrate Radeon Vega 8 Graphics graphics card. Compared with Ryzen 53500U, the performance is improved by 18%, but the power consumption of TDP reaches 35W, and the power consumption increases with the improvement of performance.
In order to contain the high fever of internal components, Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen version adopts double fan double heat pipe heat dissipation system, combined with large area heat absorption base and high conductivity heat conduction material, together with intelligent heat dissipation regulation, can effectively control the internal and surface temperature of Lenovo Xiaoxin Pro 13.
HUAWEI MateBook 13 Ruilong version is equipped with shark fin fan version 2.0. it uses double fans and imitates the design of shark fin blades. the air volume is 25% higher than that of ordinary double fans, and it is equipped with double heat pipes, which can achieve more efficient heat dissipation effect and achieve both performance and heat dissipation. In addition, the software is equipped with intelligent filtering technology through the temperature sensor to monitor the temperature of the whole machine in real time, so that the fan rotates more smoothly, and the noise of the fan can not be felt at all during daily use.
At the same time, both of them also use DDR4 dual-channel memory design and PCIe NVMe high-speed solid-state disk, PCIe NVMe's hard disk reading capacity is 5 times that of SATA solid-state disk, and the writing capacity is 3 times that of SATA solid-state disk, which makes the running speed increase again.
More personalized features to bring an excellent user experience
The office is an important use scene of two products, in which the HUAWEI MateBook 13 Ruilong version is equipped with the innovative interactive transmission technology of Huawei, which is widely praised by users. The data (file, picture, video) transfer between the mobile phone and the computer can be easily completed by touching the mobile phone and the computer. After the subsequent upgrade of PC manager, the multi-screen collaborative function can be used to break through the difficult problem of file transfer between Windows and Android devices. Realize the interconnection between terminals. Lenovo is about to launch the Lenovo One function, but at present, Lenovo's new Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen version cannot be used, so the, HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version is obviously more convenient for data transmission between mobile phones and PC.
In terms of interface, Lenovo's new Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen version is more traditional, HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version is more innovative. The new Pro 13 is equipped with 3.5mm headphone interface, USB 3.1 interface and two full-function Type-C ports. The HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version has only one 3.5mm headphone port and two Type-C ports. And neither of them is equipped with HDMI interface, so when office meetings need projection, they must be externally connected to the extension dock.
Finally, Lenovo achieved USB-C charging on Lenovo's new Pro 13 standard pressure AMD Ryzen version, but it is still equipped with a slightly heavier 65W three-phase charger. The same 65W HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version is equipped with a portable USB-C interface adapter, which is compact and convenient in size and saves space. What is more worth mentioning is that the, HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD Ryzen version adapter is also compatible with 20V/3.25A, 15V/3A, 12V/2A, 9V/2A, 5V/2A and other charging output power, and supports fast charging of mobile phones, which is faster than Lenovo Xiaoxin 13 Pro.
