Huawei’s 2-in-1 device, the MateBook, comes close to what we’d call perfection of a business tool. Yes, we liked a lot Huawei’s proposal, noticing a unibody metal design that gives a premium, sophisticated feel and the Windows 10 OS, unbeatable when it comes to productivity performance.
Besides these two winning features, MateBook doesn’t cut corners when it comes to processing time, packing the 6th Generation Intel® Core™ m-series processor that will help your Continuum Mode experience a lot. Depending on your usage needs and price tags, you can get the 4GB or 8GB RAM, with the basic model coming with 128GB internal storage!
As with a tablet, but not a laptop, there’s no expandable slots. Huawei, though, found a solution to this conundrum, offering an adapter that connects to a USB type C charger on the tablet with HDMI, projects and several classic USB ports. Didn’t we say it was awesome? 🙂
If you’re thinking this must come in a pretty package, but probably heavy and bulky, you couldn’t be more wrong. Huawei managed to keep the tablet thin, an aspect we all love, with MateBook clocking in at 640grams and 6.9mm thickness. The IPS TFT LCD display is everything you’ve hoped for, on a 12-inches screen with 2160×1440 resolution – impeccable clarity, yes.
The MateBook comes with a MatePen for sketches with a sensor “that detects over 2048 levels of sensitivity and an easy access eraser mode”; you can also transform it in a laser pointer for presentations. Another useful accessory is the Portfolio keyboard, a water-resistant one at that, with ambient light sensor.
Prices start at $699/€799 (~£620) for a 128GB model with 4GB of RAM. If you’re convinced this could be you match made in gadget heaven, stay tuned for a release date in the upcoming months.
