Huawei has announced their three latest Matebook series laptops are heading to Australia, with devices available to pre-order from today, with units set to arrive in store from November 11th.
The new range has something for everyone, with ultra-slim and lightweight designs and the inclusion of HUAWEI FullView Displays and Intel Core processors. The new range all launches with Windows 10, but also includes a Windows 11 update to keep your hardware up to date.
The new range starts with the entry level Huawei MateBook D14 from just $1,199, then moves up to the mid-range Huawei MateBook 14 at $1,799 and finally the high-end Matebook Pro X 2021 for $2,999.
Speaking of the launch, Larking Huang, Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business in Australia, said,
“With a fully connected, intelligent world fast approaching, we remain committed in delivering superior, intelligent technology to Australians across our entire range. Huawei’s latest launch of these revolutionary PC products have been exclusively designed to fulfil the needs and exceed expectations across work, in life and in entertainment. With enhancements set to raise the bar in the growing PC category, we look forward to providing our customers with a seamless experience for many years to come.”
MateBook Pro X 2021
The MateBook Pro X 2021 uses an 11th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor, with a 13.9-inch 3K FullView LTPS touch display in a super-slim body measuring just 14.6mm thin. Huawei is also including 16GB of 3733MHz LPDDR4 RAM with a 1TB nVME SSD drive.
The laptop has up to 11 hours of battery life thanks to the 56Wh battery, with a 65W USB-C charger included to top you off quickly when required.
There’s a webcam on-board, though it’s mounted under a key on the keyboard to leave the bezels around the display absolutely minimal.
The premium, lightweight laptop will be available in a metallic, ‘Space Gray’ finish which looks stunning and comes with a pre-order bonus of a pair of FreeBuds Pro TWS earbuds which worked really well when we reviewed them.
You can check out the MateBook Pro X 2021 on the Huawei Australia website.
