It is not always easy for our team to choose just one item as our Product of the Year and with nearly 150 products reviewed in 2020, this past 12 months was no different. For the first time, we ventured into new territory reviewing autonomous garbage cans, plant-based protein supplements, environmentally friendly cellphone cases, condoms, and more.
While we appreciate every company, we have collaborated with this year, there are certain things we look for in what we call the Product of the Year, namely – innovation, ease of use, creativity, and value for money. After much discussion and at times debate, we came to a consensus. In a year that changed the way we did things and was full of uncertainty, at times, fear, and some turbulence, the One Cut Review Product of the Year for 2020 is the Huawei Matebook 13 (2020 Edition).
With all the online learning and work from home that happened this past 12 months, a svelte and powerful laptop was a must, and nothing performed better or was robust enough to tackle the daily grind than the latest Matebook 13 series by Huawei.
This portable and robust offering featured a slim 14.9mm all metallic diamond-cut frame flanked by a brilliant 2K Full View high precision multitouch Display and an immersive 88% screen to body ratio which meant the bezels just melted away, making this an enjoyable viewing experience over some long 10-hour days in front of a screen.
Powering this remarkable package was the 10th generation Intel® core™ i7-10510U processor and the NVIDIA® GeForce® MX250 discrete graphics paired with a massive 16GB of Ram and dual Wi-Fi antennas which means fast and reliable performance with exceptional multitasking capability both on a hardware and software level.
Speaking of software, the laptop shipped with the latest version of the Windows 10 OS and some other great features like Huawei Share, which seamlessly integrated your laptop and cellphone into a singular connected powerhouse. Best of all, there was an innovative biometric power button for added security, a formidable 65-watt fast charger included in the box, and powerful 12-hour battery life that kept us going all day long without the worry.
Put simply, the 2020 Edition of the Matebook 13 by Huawei is the only laptop we recommended to our readers, it has powered every single review that One Cut Reviews did in the second half of 2020, and for us, there is simply no better endorsement than that.
