With laptops getting physically thinner and lighter with each new release, we also see a lot of compromises due to limited physical space

Though they may be trendy, thin laptops tend to be super expensive and unaccessible for most of us who don't necessarily have deep pockets. But what if there was a more affordable alternative, with flagship performance?

HUAWEI's offering in the slim laptop segment is the MateBook D 15, which is a super-contender when it comes to its size and performance ratio, costing just RM2,499

Touted as one of the best slim laptop offerings you can currently get, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 ticks all the boxes when it comes to practicality, performance, and aesthetics.

Here are 5 reasons you might want to consider getting the HUAWEI MateBook D 15:

1. Combined with its lightweight design, the MateBook D 15's 87% screen-to-body ratio makes for a brilliant content viewing experience

The beautiful piece of glass that adorns the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 is the HD FullView Display. Offering a 1920x1080 pixel resolution, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 allows you to view more content in a single page, as opposed to scrolling or switching between different tabs. This is especially useful for work-related tasks.

Add to the fact that the screen is TÜV Rheinland certified, you'll be exposed to much less blue light emissions than other devices in this segment. 

With a weight of just 1.53 kilograms, you'll be able to carry this beautiful machine everywhere you go with absolute ease. Combined with its USB Type-C charging, you can also charge all your HUAWEI devices with just one cable. Say goodbye to tangled messes.

2. You can use your MateBook D 15 as an extension of your HUAWEI smartphone through Multi-Screen Collaboration

Built on the foundations of HUAWEI's One Tap Share technology, Multi-Screen Collaboration allows you to simply tap your HUAWEI smartphone on the right palm rest of the MateBook D 15 and generate a real-time cast of your smartphone screen onto your laptop.

But it isn't just a projection of your smartphone screen. You can control everything on your smartphone by just using the screen that pops up on your MateBook D 15. This solves the common problems people come across when transferring data between Android and Windows.

You can even pick up phone calls with the MateBook D 15, thanks to multi-screen collaboration. That means you can really focus on the tasks at hand without having to physically divide your attention between multiple devices. 

Seamless connectivity without all the gimmicks.

3. Save tonnes of time with One-Click Fingerprint Login

While passwords are there to protect our sensitive information, they can be really tedious, especially when we use super complicated ones. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 gets rid of this chore by just simply requiring the tap of your finger to login.

Much like a fingerprint scanner on a smartphone, the One-Click Fingerprint Login feature allows you to unlock your MateBook D 15 with a quick press of the power button, which actually doubles as a fingerprint scanner. Why waste time typing out a password? :)

4. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 makes smart use of space, with its built-in camera recessed within the keyboard

With privacy being a major concern, the built-in webcam of the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 takes things a step further with its recessed design. More specifically, it's hidden underneath the keyboard, disguised as a button. All you need to do is press it in order to pop it up and use it. 

This gives us more security because it's out of the way when we don't need it, and it conveniently appears from within the keyboard when we do. This not only gives users more peace-of-mind, it also provides much more security and protection against cyber threats. Simple, yet efficient. 

5. The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 comes in two hardware configurations to suit different needs

Offering AMD configurations, users are free to choose a MateBook D 15 that suits their needs best. 

The AMD configuration is tailored towards power-users. Packing a powerful processor (the Ryzen 5 3500U) as well as an integrated Radeon Vega 8 graphics card, you've got powerful performance and outstanding entertainment versatility. 

The HUAWEI MateBook D 15 also comes with dual storage capabilities in the form of a 256GB SSD and a 1TB HDD. This increases read and write speeds by up to 50% over single-channel memory.

Even people like Mark O'Dea are raving about the capabilities of the HUAWEI MateBook D 15. With flagship performance at an affordable price point, it's kinda hard to resist.
