Huawei MateBook Windows 10 tablet on sale at Amazon, Microsoft Store and Newegg

Huawei’s MateBook is the company’s newest 2-in-1 tablet that bears striking similarities to the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. The device runs Windows 10 and can be purchased right now from the Microsoft Store, Amazon, and Newegg.

Back in June, Huawei began taking pre-orders for the tablet via the Microsoft Store, but there’s no need to do that anymore seeing as it is fully available now. For those unaware, the MateBook comes packed with a full HD 12-inch touchscreen display.

Consumers can choose between four versions of the MateBook, ranging from 4GB of RAM to 8GB. Internal storage goes up to 512GB SSD, which is not too bad seeing as there are USB ports to add regular hard drives. The MateBook can run up to nine hours on a single charge.

The MateBook begins at $699 and ends at $1199. The following is a rundown of its four versions and their prices:

  • Core m3, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD – $699
  • Core m5, 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD – $849
  • Core m5, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD – $999
  • Core m5, 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD – $1199

The MateBook Portfolio Keyboard, seen in the picture above, can be purchased via retailers for $129.

We like what Huawei has done with the MateBook, but we’d prefer to have a device with a much better processor than the Core M. If Microsoft can do it with the Surface Pro 4, then we see no reason why Huawei is unable to do the same.

Huawei first unveiled the MateBook 2-in-1 tablet at MWC 2016 to a warm reception. Time will tell if the Core M decision will turn out to be a good one.
