Huawei has discreetly introduced several upgrades to its MateBook D 14 SE laptop, offering users enhanced features and improved performance. One of the major upgrades is the introduction of a new 16:10 display, spanning 14 inches diagonally. This screen not only boasts a sharp resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels but also provides an impressive peak brightness of 300 nits. Furthermore, users can be assured of reduced strain on their eyes as the display has been certified by TÜV Rheinland for low blue light emissions.
While the design of the laptop remains primarily unchanged, a subtle modification can be observed in the form of a small lip around the webcam and microphone area. Delving into its performance metrics, the MateBook D 14 SE is now powered by the more robust Core i5-13420H, a 13th-generation Intel processor. This represents a considerable leap from the Core i5-1235U processor that was equipped in the laptop's previous version. One should note, however, that the newer processor has a 45W TDP, making it more power-intensive than the 15W TDP Core i5-1235U.

Another significant enhancement is the doubling of the laptop's RAM capacity to 16GB, ensuring smoother multitasking and the ability to run more demanding applications seamlessly. Some of the other features worth highlighting are the inclusion of a 512GB SSD, a robust 56Wh battery compatible with 65W charging, and an assortment of useful ports such as HDMI, USB-C, and USB-A.
Currently, the updated MateBook D 14 SE is available in the Chinese market, priced at CNY 4,199, which equates to roughly US$574. Information regarding its availability in global markets is awaited.
