The best all-around laptop right now comes from an extremely unlikely source. You’ve probably never thought of Huawei for your next computer because you didn’t realize the company even made laptops or if you did, you knew that its earlier efforts were disappointing. But Huawei’s MateBook X Pro nails the complete package of portability, power, keyboard, trackpad, display, and design better than anything else you can buy. It has the latest processors from Intel; optional discrete graphics for more processing power; a gorgeous, high-resolution touchscreen that stretches to the very edge of the laptop’s frame; and a keyboard and trackpad that are comfortable to use with almost no issues.

The MateBook X Pro’s standout feature is its display, a 13.9-inch 3000 x 2000 pixel touchscreen that’s bright and colorful and has a great aspect ratio for productivity work. It is arguably the best screen you’ll find on any laptop this year. That display is mated to an aluminum chassis that’s as premium as you’ll find, and has both modern USB-C ports and a traditional USB-A port for existing peripherals.

The battery is good enough to last between seven and eight hours between charges, which isn’t the longest lasting battery, but average for this class of laptop.
On top of all that, the MateBook X Pro costs less than many of its rivals, without cutting corners in materials, performance, or features.

“... Third-party app developers can read the emails of millions of Gmail users, a report from The Wall Street Journal highlighted today. Gmail’s access settings allows data companies and app developers to see people’s emails and view private details, including recipient addresses, time stamps, and entire messages. And while those apps do need to receive user consent, the consent form isn’t exactly clear that it would allow humans — and not just computers — to read your emails.
Google told The Verge that it only gives data to vetted third-party developers and with users’ explicit consent. The vetting process involves checking whether a company’s identity is correctly represented by its app, its privacy policy states that it will monitor emails, and the data that the company is requesting makes sense for what the company does. An email app, for instance, should get access to Gmail. Some developers have applied for access to Gmail but have not been granted permission, although the company won’t say how many....”
