Summary

MateBook X Pro looks a lot like Apple MacBook Pro clone in terms of design but handles to add in features making it better for pros on the go, Gorgeous 14-inches bright and sharp display, a traditional USB A port both are big pluses as well as excellent audio making it a cut above some others, Perhaps you won’t be thrilled with its pop-up camera (webcam) or the fact that it’s hard to pick up in the US.
