Huawei Takes On Surface With MateBook 2-In-1 PC

Huawei has announced a new Windows 10 device that is very reminiscent of the TabPro S that Samsung showed at CES. This guy has an LCD display, though, which may be an option for those who are afraid of the potential burn-in thing but still want a similar, Surface-like experience.

Huwaei’s pitch for the MateBook revolves around productivity, and it appears to have the kinds of features and options that are needed for someone looking to squeeze a lot out of a 2-in-1. Huawei says the battery will last through 9 hours of video playback, or up to 13 hours of lighter use. The MateBook runs both the Home and Pro editions of Windows 10, and customers will have the option of powering it with an Intel Core M3, M5, or M7 processor. But the coolest feature might be the volume rocker آ— Huawei have embedded the fingerprint sensor from the Mate 8 in it, so unlocking this 2-in-1 will take fewer steps than with most similar devices.
