And to begin with…
Is the MateBook 53010FYT for you?The overall quality of a model depends on the use you make of it.To make the choice easier, we have judged this HUAWEI MateBook 53010FYT according to what you are going to do with it.
This article is therefore composed according to functions; What is the purpose of this model?
MateBook 53010FYT the right choice for surfing the internet?
What you expect from a mobile phone is that it allows you to surf the Web, and possibly allow you to write e-mails, do calculations in a spreadsheet or word processor. This MateBook 53010FYT is a lower quality laptop for those who are not very attentive. The material used by HUAWEI are of average quality and the components have characteristics that are already dating. So you can understand that you will not keep this product for more than 4 years.
With a 13 inches size, you’ll be able to carry it easily. The computer is equipped with a relatively old processor, the Intel Core i7 1,8 Ghz. By investing in this laptop, you take the risk of immediate obsolescence. For a few euros more, it is possible to switch to more powerful processors. The power required for a fluid internet navigation, will sometimes be low on this model and may require a new purchase in 3 years. Very clearly, with only 8 Gb ofRAM, this laptop is not the best equipped model. It will be a very good idea to spend a few extra euros to upgrade your computer with an extra 2Gb or 4Gb. Thanks to this, the laptop will allow a more fluid navigation.
The disk size of this laptop is among the smallest on the market. By offering only 512 Gb, this MateBook 53010FYT is one of the smallest in its category. And if really this point was blocking for you, you can always buy an external hard drive and plug it into the usb port.
Last point about the autonomy. the MateBook 53010FYT can work 10 hours in wifi mode only activated by the batteries. The batteries that equip this model are less efficient than those of other models in the same category. Not as good as what you can get on competing products, and that’s a pity, because in the end the laptop is pleasant to use.
Is MateBook 53010FYT one for watching movies and listening to music ?
HUAWEI presents this laptop as a standard product dedicated to a low-resource usage. This MateBook 53010FYT is a multipurpose laptop that will suit most uses, whether it’s for playing resource-efficient games, light photo editing, or for office work and web browsing. In other words, a computer dedicated to “classic” uses for most users, but not specifically audio and video oriented.
As for the screen, it is a model of reduced size, 13 inches, with a 2160×1440. Despite this, the colors are correct, and the contrasts allow you to see the details. Continuously over the course of a day’s work or movie viewing, you may feel tired; such a small screen means you have to concentrate more to see better. The main advantage linked to this size, on the other hand, is its overall weight: 1.3 kg that it will be easy to take anywhere.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this MateBook 53010FYT. We tested it with movies and music at maximum volume. Even if it does well, this laptop will not be able to compete with a good hi-fi system. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Unfortunately, this laptop has only got the processor Intel Core i7 1,8 Ghz, which today is rather light for this kind of use. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. It’s still acceptable in audio/video mode, you only need to launch one application at a time.
As far as applications are concerned, did HUAWEI not install any. The operating system and that’s it. This is a Windows 10 Famille on which you can install the software you need. For multimedia, you can possibly take VLC .
With Intel HD 620 Graphics, ahigh-performance graphics card, a dedicated memory of 8 Gb of RAM, you can watch movies, with smooth images, possibly retouch photos or edit video. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.
Connectivity is unlikely to be a priority for HUAWEI. Indeed, it MateBook 53010FYT has only 2 ports. Not enough to connect everything; you’ll have to choose.
For multimedia use in travel or on-the-go mode, this MateBook 53010FYT may not be suitable. With its autonomy of 10 hours, don’t expect to do a movie marathon. You will have to anticipate the duration of the films, otherwise you will not know the end. Therefore, it is best to use this computer constantly plugged into an outlet, without worrying about battery life.
The MateBook 53010FYT to use while travelling.
It MateBook 53010FYT is certainly a laptop, but not really portable and certainly not intended for those who travel. At least that’s what we find out a priori. It only fits in a computer bag dedicated to its size, and if you decide to take it in your suitcase, it will be at the expense of clothes, it is so big.
In other words, leave it at home and only take it for occasional short trips.
Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s hard to have a large, lightweight laptop; the compromise is made according to your use. The 13 inches screen is barely enough to surf the internet or write e-mails.
It is a product that is easy and pleasant to use. Good image definition and a matt anti-reflective tile that you’ll appreciate when you’re outdoors, with no sun glare.
With the installation of the processor Intel Core i7 1,8 Ghz, the power consumption is rather important.
The result is a poorer autonomy. This figure is an estimate and consider instead that you will have 70% of this autonomy.
Unfortunately for the specifications of the batteries will only allow 10 hours of availability, one of the lowest at the moment.
Because of its probable use for travel, this laptop was thought to be thin and light with a SSD hard drive of 1 512 Gb. SSDs are much faster and lighter, and have no moving parts. With no moving mechanical parts, there is less risk of brittleness and produced heat .For those who do not have enough space on the disk, it will be necessary to go through the option of a subscription on the cloud; the price decreases regularly.
Travel will be a mere formality when you decide to take it along. Equipped with a compact 13 inches screen, it is one of the smallest models of the moment.
It MateBook 53010FYT provides only 2 connectors. This makes it one of the least well equipped models currently.
The manufacturer has surely decided on this model to limit the manufacturing costs, and thus removed the Bluetooth functionality; a pity when we know that sharing between devices (phones or speakers) is convenient with this technology.
Finally with the MateBook 53010FYT, HUAWEI deliver us a laptop at a tight price but not intended for travelliing, or as an exception.
The MateBook 53010FYT for audio or video editing ?
Definitely not intended for audio and video editing. The weak point of this model is its processor, and its amount of memory. Of course you could still use it for this, but you will find that the result is too tight. Note that this model is not of the latest generation. In short, prefer a model that will be a little more expensive, but much more efficient.
The software suite installed by default on this model provides the bare minimum to start working. You can always try to do video editing with the processor Intel Core i7 1,8 Ghz. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
The designers of HUAWEI have chosen a single disk, an SSD, for this laptop. However, for audiovisual use, we would have preferred a dual-disk system: a large-capacity hard disk for backup, and an SSD for speed of execution. Here with 512 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. It is nevertheless one of the good laptops in terms of storage, compared to its competitors.
The autonomy of this MateBook 53010FYT is of 10 hours in normal use; This is less than average, so we advise you to keep the power cable close by, otherwise you may lose your work unexpectedly. Maybe the next model will be better off.
Unfortunately not equipped with a USB 3.0 port as standard. It implies more time when you decide to transfer your files to an external drive.
In the end, it is a product not allowing audio and video editing. This also explains its price positioning below the laptops designed for this specific use.
The MateBook 53010FYT for online or local games.
It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. Our tests have shown that yhis MateBook 53010FYT wasn’t designed for video games. The main causes are related to a lack of homogeneity in the choice of the graphics chip, associated with the processor, the screen and the cooling level of the laptop.
Provided with a resolution of 2160×1440, this model is unfortunately much less equipped than its competitors. The visual comfort during the game phase, and the image quality will be less good.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
Not really designed for gaming, which leads to a display system that is a little behind the times Possibly, the display will be less degraded if you are playing old games, requiring fewer resources.
When it comes to disk space, this computer ranks low.He’s one of the worst of the moment, with only 512 Gb.
Even if the weight is not very important when you use it for games, know that this model is one of the lightest of the market with its 1.3 Kg.
One of the lowest battery life 10 hours, which will force you to often leave this laptop plugged in.
In short, if you want a fun gaming experience, choose another model than this MateBook 53010FYT one. And save this one for more classic uses, like surfing the net.
MateBook 53010FYT the right choice for office automation ?
In case your unique and main everyday use is a tool for office automation, HUAWEI may have put a rather low computer on the market. In detail, here’s what’s going on.
HUAWEI has designed this new laptop for the majority of users. It’s the latest version of Windows 10 Famille that’s running it.
Not all basic office applications may be available on this model. It’s up to you to download and/or purchase the software suite that suits you. One of the big advantages of a laptop is naturally its ability to follow you when you’re on the move. This model weighs 1.3 Kg, which is the best at the moment.
For office use, chances are that the absence of the numeric keypad will annoy you over time. In fact, if you want one, it will be necessary to buy a pad connected via the usb port.
This MateBook 53010FYT eliminates the problems of light reflection on the screen, as it has a matt finish. In use, a matte screen gets dirty less quickly than a glossy one.
The storage of this model, 512 Gb, is one of the smallest. If you’re working on shared documents in the cloud, such as Office365 or Google drive, no problem.
Simply put, it’s not MateBook 53010FYT the best choice for office use. Or for occasional use, knowing that due to its technical characteristics it will be obsolete in less than 3 years.
The MateBook 53010FYT in conclusion
This MateBook 53010FYT will be a one-time choice, and for moderate use. Its aging technology will make its use disappointing fairly quickly.
In other words, this model is not really made for :
– web browsing
– listening to music and watching videos
– travel use
– make audio and video editing
– playing video games
– office tasks
