Huawei unveiled a revised version of its MateBook X Pro at MWC 2019 this year, but last year's model still remains a sleek and powerful choice. And if you've had your eye on one for a while, now may be the time to make the jump, as the Microsoft Store has dropped the price on both the Intel Core i5 and Core i7 models by up to $200.

The top-end model is currently down to $1,300 (opens in new tab), which is a solid discount from its usual $1,500 price tag. For your money, the MateBook X Pro packs a 13.9-inch 3000x2000 screen, an 8th Gen Intel Core i7-8550U processor, NVIDIA MX150 graphics, and 16GB of RAM. That's rounded out by 512GB of storage and Huawei's sleek design, which includes incredibly thin bezels around the display.
You can save a little more money if you step down to the model with an Intel Core i5-8250U processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and integrated Intel UHD 620 graphics. That model is down from $1,200 to $1,050 (opens in new tab).
You'll also find a fingerprint sensor on board, along with two USB-C ports (one of which is a Thunderbolt 3 port) and one USB-A port.
Despite being released in 2018, this version of the MateBook X Pro remains a solidly powerful option at a great price. The 2019 model, which is expected to launch in the coming months, does feature an updated Huawei logo and a move up to Intel's Whiskey Lake processors, but it's otherwise much the same as last year's model.
