If you're a fan of Huawei's premium laptops, but don't want to drop the big bucks on the high-end MateBook X Pro, the company has a new addition to its lineup that may prove attractive. Huawei today launched the Intel-powered variant of its MateBook D in the U.S., packing some powerful specs at a starting price of $999.
Huawei already unleashed one version of the MateBook D on the U.S. market earlier this year with a variant powered by an AMD Ryzen processor at a much lower price of $629. The Intel version steps things up a notch by packing in your choice of either an 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8250U or i7-8550U processor.
On the graphics front, the Intel version switching things up from Radeon's Vega8 graphics to a discrete NVIDIA GeForce MX150 chip. It also sports more storage options, with either a 256GB or 512GB SSD. Other than those differences, the Intel version shares the same 8GB of LPDDR3 memory, 1MP front-facing camera, and 14-inch 1080p screen. Power is also once again supplied by a single USB-C cable.
The MateBook D certainly looks to be a viable option for anyone who likes Huawei's styling but is turned off by its higher-priced offerings. Starting today, you can pick up the Core i5 version at Amazon, Newegg, and B&H for $999. The Core i7 version is available only from the Microsoft Store for $1,099.
