1. Huawei MateBook 14 (2020) – the best in all areas
Around $ 950 (Ryzen 5, 8GB, 256GB) | Around $ 1,200 (Ryzen 7, 16GB, 512GB)
This latest edition of the MateBook 14 still delivers great value for money. Huawei has kept a sleek design and design, although would have liked a few grams less, and installed AMD’s powerful Ryzen 4000-H series chips.
It is also more powerful than some laptops twice as expensive. It is therefore impressive for Huawei to offer two MateBook models for less than € 1,500.
It’s a multi-talented PC with a beautiful screen, a nice range of ports, reliable battery life, a decent keyboard, and much more. Attention, the webcam is still placed strangely on the keyboard.
2. HP Envy 13 (2020) – Best 13 inches
The Envy 13 from HP is much like its predecessor, with a refined finish. However, the 2020 version features some improvements that make it even more competitive.
The keyboard incorporates privacy options for the microphone and webcam, while the screen is brighter than ever with thinner bezels. It includes up to 1TB of storage and an optional Nvidia GeForce MX350 dedicated graphics card.
Among its small flaws, there is its slightly noisy fan and its reflective screen. However, the Envy 13 remains one of the best on the market.
3. Dell XPS 15 9500 (2020) – The best 15 inch
If you’re looking for a 15-inch laptop, perhaps as an alternative to the MacBook Pro, then you’ll be hard-pressed to find better than the 2020 XPS 15. This notebook is well designed, compact, and has good performance, and impressive technical characteristics.
Its battery, screen, and speakers are among its strengths, on the other hand, the webcam is disappointing and its keyboard is too light.
4. Huawei MateBook X Pro (2020) – The most class
The 2020 MateBook X Pro looks a lot like the last two MateBook X Pro, and we’re not going to be happy with it.
It was one of the best laptops you could buy last year. And, its upgrade to the 10th Gen Intel chip and a new lush green color keeps it that status.
With a configuration of up to a Core i7, 16GB of RAM, MX250 GPU, and a storage capacity of 1TB, it can be a superbly powerful work tool.
Note that this solid hardware is maintained in a light design, with a beautiful screen and the best keyboard in its category, not to mention its impressive battery life.
Our only real complaint is the surprising location of the webcam.
5. Honor MagicBook 14 – Best value for money
The late 2020 Honor MagicBook 14 offers performance worthy of a flagship model thanks to the Ryzen 4500U processor and a design that perfectly combines style and practicality.
Its ports (USB-A, USB-C, and HDMI) complete a slim and relatively light design, with a fantastic keyboard and a reliable display. The only real downside is the webcam built into the keyboard.
