Huawei revealed the MateBook, its flashy 2-in-1 Windows 10 hybrid, earlier this year at Mobile World Congress. Today the company finally announced its U.S. launch plans, revealing that the device will be available in the U.S. starting on July 11. You can pre-order it now from Microsoft either in-store or online.
The MateBook starts at $699, which gets you an Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The company’s also offering a a handful of variants going all the way up to $1,599 for a Core m7 chip, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. You’ll probably want to pick up a few accessories as well, including the MatePen ($59), attachable keyboard ($129) or MateDock ($89).
We spent some time testing out the MateBook earlier this year and came away super impressed. It sports a sleek metal design in gray or gold with slim bezels, along with a gorgeous 12-inch 2160 x 1440-pixel display. The entire device is also just 6.9mm thick and boasts a 9 hour battery life, though we’ll have to test that claim out for ourselves.
