After pushing hard with their mobile business in Australia Huawei have taken another step into market with their new laptop launching this week at Microsoft’s Sydney store and online.

The MateBook X Pro is a slim, beautiful machine, with all the hallmarks of the brands we know and love like Dell, HP and Apple.  It’s two big features from our short time with the device are the stunning almost edge to edge screen and the fancy little hide-away camera in the keyboard.

With a 13.9 inch display, it packs a real punch, operating at a 3000×2000 resolution.

Under the hood is an 8th Generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor and the battery life is tipped to top 12 hours.

It goes on sale this Thursday (22 Nov) at the Sydney Flagship Microsoft store as well as Microsoft Online.

Our full review will follow in the week ahead, but let’s just say it’s a cracking good Windows machine.
