Decent. Shame the UK version doesn't come with the MX150, could handle a bit of gaming otherwise.

I don't see what that has to do with buying a laptop or not...
Long and short, their technology contains back doors and UK National Cyber Security Centre cannot provide strong enough assurities that these are not or will not be manipluated for Chinese espionage. Whislt the report focusses on telecoms, I wouldnt rule out other tech being exposed to similar risks.

There's a reason that all these chinese handsets and tech are so cheap!

So you are talking about their wish to help build 5g networks in the UK. Which has pretty much nothing to do with this laptop.

The National Cyber Security Centre haven't alleged anything about chinese espionage. You might as well say they haven't provided strong enough assurances that these will not be manipulated for UK espionage.

You're right, there is a reason why the Chinese handsets tend to be cheaper - corners are cut and they're built to cater to different markets.

Products which offer the full flagship spec sheet such as the P30 Pro are price in the same ballpark as other flagship phones.

Either way, this ultrabook is hardly priced to undercut other options..

Well no, we might as well not say that. The UK have a legal framework that they operate through when conducting surveillance in this country....China has no such restrictions. Although this report is about the mobile networks, there is concern over technology used by these Chinese companies. The Chinese state are also very much involved with the company...

Both claims are completely unsubstantiated.

There was no allegations of purposeful backdoors or any attempt to make it easy for Chinese espionage. You added that bit yourself.

If you are going to add your own opinion to reports made by the National Cyber Security Centre and pretend like it is coming from their report then you are less trustworthy than Huawei.

and, american stuff all contains american back doors

It's a 'them and us' situation, right
us westerners have been back-dooring stuff for decades, hardware and software
easterners start make better tech than us and back-dooring it also

we complain because they're now doing the same as what we've always done, only better

Yes because they would be utlized by the Swedish Intelligence Service who are obviously very close to Huawei....re read what I actually wrote. I feel like you are getting very jumpy and agitated for no reason.

I didnt say that the National Cyber Security Centre have stated Huawei is making purposeful backdoors for China, you've misquoted. I said ' the [NCSC] cannot provide strong enough assurities that these are not or will not be manipluated for Chinese espionage'. NCSC has not stated that Chinese State has done these things but there are fears that they certainly could, which is widley acknowledged. The fact that backdoors can be created has been acknowledged by Huawei. They've just said that they're not legally obligated to do so. Which is true in some respects but false in others.

Chinese law requires any organization in country to cooperate with national intelligence work. Not to mention, that Xi Jinping is, lets be honest, a dicator and that the Chinese State is far stronger and more involved in its bussiness than any Western Country. This means in reality, its unlikley that Huawei would not if requested, particularly in times of crises and also given the fact that the State does alot to prop up its business, inlcuding industrial espinage (another fear RE Huawei). For the points regarding our own Services doing it. Correct to some degree but an over simplication. It may apply to foreign nationals but not to domestic intelligence. The intelligence services can't conduct domestic surveillance of any kind without a warrant. Dont get lost in James Bond, spy thrillers and media exaggerations. The point stands that when targeting UK citizens, China has none of these restrictions.

I digress to answer some statements, but there is a very real reason to be dubious of these brands. And i'm basing this off reports and facts, not just one what I like to believe, such as yourself. You have a right to your opinion but there may be some who would be concerned about these issues and which may impact on their decision to buy so it seems appropriate to comment.

No you paraphrased and misquoted what I said to question my credibility. Me drawing two sources of information together to create a point doesn't invalidate what I said. I'm criticising your vehement defence of something that, until I commented you were not even aware of and after reading a few articles of one report continue to act like anyone else who's read more or knows of the previous reports is somehow subjective and lacks credibility. I did try to explain more but it appears you didn't read anything again.

You have shared an opinion that what I say is a complete fallacy and mere opinion devoid of any factually evidence...simply because you are unaware if it and briefly read a report.

So yes people are free to read and form their own opinion, and they don't need you to comment, hence why I initially stated that I would be wary of buying this after the most recent report was produced; an invitation for people to read further if they wish. I would suggest you do the same before you delve into such a dispute with such enthusiasm and start claiming lies and lack of credibility.

Seriously haha You're still going? Misquoting was taking what I said and then stating that I said something different. Would have been handy if you actually read the quote that you pressed quote on. I've literally spelled out how you misquoted previously, on my large explanation, which was intended....well to explain what was so clearly alluding you. It looks like all that information continued to allude you.

If you still can't understand the point after all this then that makes your poor jab at the lack of critical thinking doubly ironic! Please develop your point by actually reading up on it, before you throw such hurtful and witty insults around.
