Huawei's new MateBook 13 is here to offer some serious power in a seriously svelte package, with an 88 per cent 3:2 screen-to-body ratio display, Intel Whiskey Lake processing, and a NVIDIA MX150 d-GPU option.
The laptops will be available towards the end of January in the US, and come in two configurations. The first comes with a Core i5 and Intel UHD 620 graphics, while the second model brings a Core i7 to the table and a discrete NVIDIA MX150 GPU option.

Clocking in at just over half an inch thick, the Huawei MateBook 13 leverages the company's "Shark Fin 2.0" cooling system, which the firm says works in tandem with an array of sensors to ensure the laptop remains cool, despite the power and density of its components.
Two USB-C ports join the fray, as well as a fingerprint scanner integrated into the power button for secure sign-in. Huawei reckons the 41.7Wh battery can deliver around 10 hour's worth of battery life across both models, with the MX150 variant performing slightly worse owing to its beefed up specs.
Huawei says that both configurations will become available on January 29, 2019 in the US, with the lower-end model costing $999 and the higher-end costing $1299 respectively.
