Forget the MacBook: This Huawei MateBook D 15 Prime Day deal is unmissable

Don't waste money on a wallet-busting Apple laptop – the MateBook D 15 does everything you need for MUCH less

The Huawei MateBook D 15 is one of our all-time favourite cheap laptops, and right now, it’s even cheaper. Until midnight on 14 October, Amazon Prime members can enjoy savings of up to £100 on Huawei’s flagship-beating large-screen laptop, with the high-end AMD Radeon 7 model coming in at the exact same price as the lowest-spec model at £549 – down from an average of £649.

If it wasn’t clear, that’s astonishing value for money. the MateBook D 15 is an ultraportable laptop with a huge 15in display and enough power to put much more expensive products to shame. We gave it five stars and a Best Buy award: our reviewer Tim Danton found very little to complain about, describing the Matebook D 15 as “a good quality laptop for a low price.” Not one for embellishment, our Tim.

The specifications tell a more dramatic story. An all-metal chassis (unusual for a product of this price) encases an AMD Radeon 7 CPU, paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of speedy SSD storage. Open the lid and you’ll find an enormous trackpad with equally large keyboard keys that actuate with minimal noise; above that, a 15in Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) display with slim border bezels and an 87% screen-to-body ratio. 

Or, in simpler terms: these are the specifications of a much, much more expensive laptop. There are certainly cutbacks – the battery life, while acceptable at 6 hours, could definitely be better – but as Tim points out, “Huawei had to compromise somewhere.” And yes, it runs Windows 10 and will receive updates in the future.

You might be considering a more expensive laptop – such as the Surface Laptop 3, which is currently on sale for a cool £220 saving at Amazon – but you’re no doubt apprehensive about handing over the cash, even if there are discounts galore on Amazon at the minute. That’s why we’ve picked out this offer on the MateBook D 15: if parting with your hard-earned pennies is painful, you can’t go wrong with this great-value Huawei laptop. 

Don’t forget: you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to access this stonking offer. You can sign up for free via this link.
