Opinions on the Huawei MateBook X Pro?
I’m going to be a freshman in college this year, and I’m looking to get a laptop for note taking etc (I am majoring in graphic design, which is my reason for posting on this subreddit).
Currently, I’m caught between purchasing a MBXP and a Mackbook Pro, although I will admit I know very little about Apple computers. I’ve worked with them and can do the basics – but I personally am not very fond of the OS. My friends recommended the MateBook Pro X, and they are more tech-literate than me and I trust them, so I’m looking at this option for the moment.
Here’s the link to the MateBook: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/huawei-matebook-x-pro-laptop/8n4k86d4j006/4X0P?activetab=pivot:techspecstab
Would this be suitable for graphic designing needs?
A side note: My university “requires” Apple computers junior year for the graphic design program. I’ve reached out to ask about this and am currently awaiting an email response on the reasoning behind the requirement. Could anyone offer any input (beyond “its industry standard”) on why this is? And if there’s a workaround for this? There is also a requirement for an Apple mini DVI to DVI adapter and an adobe creative cloud subscription, if that helps at all.
