The excellent Huawei MateBook is now on sale in the U.S.

If you live in the U.S., you can now get your hands on Huawei's excellent new 2-in-1 tablet, the Huawei MateBook. The Windows 10-powered tablet is now on sale from a number of retailers, including Microsoft (opens in new tab), Amazon (opens in new tab), and Newegg (opens in new tab).

As for what's inside, the Huawei MateBook comes packed with your choice of an Intel Core m3 or m5 processor, 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB or 512GB of storage. That's in addition to a 12-inch 2160 x 1440 IPS touchscreen — which should make for great viewing angles — and a 5MP front-facing camera. All of this starts at $699 for the base configuration, going up to $1,599 at the top end.

  • More of this form factor please, less core m.
  • That makes no sense and what's wrong with Core M? You can't have an ultra-thin, fanless system without Core M.
  • core m throttles itself into uselessness.
  • At this point, the Core M is the only way to have a somewhat powerful fanless device.  Different strokes...
  • Not really, the Acer Switch Alpha offers a choice of Core i3/5/7 CPU and is fanless. Had one for a while and it works extremely well and the reviews so far confirm it doesnt throttle so thats a viable alternative. Only thing it lacks is that it bucks the current fad with being as thin and light as an ipad and battery life isnt the best but apart from that its a much better value than most other 2 in 1's.
  • Would love a high end 8 inch tablet. There is none on the market right now.
  • Agreed. I want this type of tablet, but in 8 inch. iPad quality in an 8 inch form factor basically.
  • Xiaomi comes to mind. Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 64GB Windows tablet.
  • I like some features of this device, but again, comparing it to the m3 SP4 I'd still go for the SP4. I take it this one doesn't have a built-in stand, Windows Hello through camera, nor included pen. So it's pretty close but I wouldn't go for this one, even though I think it's a great device and it's a great addition to the 2in1 world
  • Base model will be our home tablet.
    Just the tablet. I love 12" 3:2 screens.
    8" definitely to small, 10" also to small. 12" small bezels? Perfect :)
  • amazing display . i want it now Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Intel Core m and the keyboard is not included for $699 and above? Not worth it.
  • With this pricing, I would pay a bit more money and get a SP4.
