The 13.9 inch Huawei MateBook X Pro has a 91 percent screen-to-body ratio, immersive Dolby Atmos sound, and a unique pop-up, secure conferencing camera. The price is reasonable and when combined with the $300 gift card it's an even better deal.
The value of the Huawei MateBook X Pro for US customers just took a major leap forward with today's US pricing and availability information.
Last month we tested the Huawei MateBook X Pro and based part of our rating on the only available pricing info, which was European pricing. We now have US pricing and the two available models are $650 and $840 less, not even including the special gift card offer, Office 365 free subscription, and MateDock 2 accessory.
