Hari Raya is just around the corner, and that means it’s crunch time, especially when you need to pack your bags for your ‘balik kampung’ trip.
Packing your stuff for a week’s stay at your ‘kampung’ is no easy task: there’s the countless of outfits you need to pack for #OOTD reasons (click here
to find out how to take the best #OOTD shots for your social media), your toiletries and of course, your entertainment devices.
For most of us, it means we have to bring three things: our smartphone, our tablet for video viewing and our laptop, for movies and music.
But what if we told you there’s one gadget that would make you leave your tablet at home?
That gadget is none other than the HUAWEI MateBook 13
That’s right; the new laptop from HUAWEI is the only gadget you need to bring with you when you ‘balik kampung’. In fact, we would say that the MateBook 13 is your best travel companion.
#1 It’s incredibly thin and light
The biggest reason why we sometimes hesitate to bring our laptops with us on vacation is because we don’t want to lug around a heavy machine in our backpacks. You won’t have that problem with the MateBook 13. That’s because it weighs only 1.3kg
and just 14.9mm
thick! It’s literally like bringing a folder with a couple of A4 papers around; you won’t even feel like it’s inside your bag.
So, you could just watch classic Hari Raya movies on your journey back to your ‘kampung’, and just slide it into your backpack when it’s time to leave the car.
Speaking of watching classic Hari Raya movies…
#2 A mean movie/music machine
With its 88 per cent screen-to-body ratio
and slender 4.4 mm bezel
, watching movies on the MateBook 13 is a real treat. The laptop comes with an exceptional 2K display
, so the images you see on screen are extremely crisp and vibrant. Not just that, it also features Dolby Atmos immersive audio
, which means that the sound that comes out of the laptop is louder and fuller.
If you want to watch a classic P. Ramlee Hari Raya movie like ‘Bujang Lapuk’ with your cousins at your ‘kampung’, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 will definitely make their jaws drop, guaranteed. And with the HUAWEI 1TB Back-Up Storage with purchase of HUAWEI MateBook 13 (more info towards the end of the article), you can store a lot of movies to watch with HUAWEI MateBook 13.
#3 It lasts for a very, very long time
If, say, you need to make a five-hour journey back to your ‘kampung’, don’t worry; the MateBook 13’s battery could last you all the way back to your hometown, and then some. HUAWEI has fitted the MateBook 13 with the best-of-class 42 Wh (TYP) battery
, which means that you can watch 1080p videos for 10 hours straight
before it runs out of juice. Even if you do run out of battery, you can charge it up using its fast-charging pocket charger: a 15-minute charge can give you 2.5 hours’ worth of office use. Super impressive, right?
Fun fact: the same cable that you use to charge your MateBook 13 can also be used to charge your HUAWEI smartphone, so you don’t need to carry around separate cables for your smartphone and your laptop.
#4 Share all your files with just one touch
If you’ve transferred files from your smartphone to your laptop before, you know how big of a struggle it is. You need to look for your transfer cable, and then you have to make sure you could get the transfer to work and lastly, you need to wait 10-15 minutes for them to copy the file.
With HUAWEI’s revolutionary OneHop feature
, however, transferring files from your HUAWEI smartphone to the laptop requires literally just one tap. You could transfer 500 photos in just one minute
or a 1GB video in just 35 seconds
…just by tapping your phone on the laptop. It’s really that simple.
On top of that, if your images contain text, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 can extract the words from the image for easy editing. Seriously mind-blowing stuff, this.
So, you could play a professional photographer during Hari Raya by taking photos of your family members, transferring the photos to your MateBook 13 with just one tap and then turn it into a slideshow on your laptop in less than two minutes. Perfect!
#5 It’s even powerful enough for all your gaming needs
Once you’re done visiting all your relatives’ houses and filling your tummies with yummy Hari Raya snacks, you could relax and fire up your favourite battle royale game (hello, ‘PUBG’!) on your HUAWEI MateBook 13.
The MateBook 13 features the new 8th generation Intel® core™ i7 8565U processor
, which runs 40 per cent faster than its predecessor. On top of that, it also comes equipped with an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 (with 2 GB GDDR5)
graphics card, backed up by a 25 W Thermal Design Power for smoother and faster gaming.
If you’re looking for a new gadget to bring back home to show your family and friends, you can’t go wrong with the HUAWEI MateBook 13.
Remember: all the awesome features above are packed into an A4 paper-sized body. Where else could you get such a deal?
You can get the HUAWEI MateBook 13 for only RM4,399
, and when you purchase one from their official online store
, you’ll also get a bluetooth mouse, a laptop bag and HUAWEI 1TB Backup Storage, which is handy for all of you who love to travel because it can be used to automatically back-up your HUAWEI devices.
On top of that, since it's the Raya season, you'll have enough space to store all those pictures and videos without worrying on storage size of your phone.
Psst, you can also store countless of movies in the 1TB Backup Storage, so you can watch them together with your family at your kampung
where internet connection might be an issue. More info on the HUAWEI Backup Storage here
