Huawei announced a three-series of new MateBook laptop devices last month. It is the company's second shot at breaking into the laptop market after the warm response to the original MateBook last year. Starting today, those next generation laptops and tablets will be available for pre-order from Amazon and Newegg USA.

As listed by The Verge, the three new laptops are named as MateBook X, MateBook E and MateBook D. The X variant is a slim ultrabook, the E variant is an updated version of the original Huawei MateBook design, and the last, the D variant, is a 15.6-inch laptop designed for mainstream users.

Huawei MateBook X

The MateBook X is obviously the flagship of the set since it offers a fanless design with a processor of Intel U-series. It also includes Dolby Atmos and Huawei confirms that it's the first 13-inch laptop to feature that surround sound technology from Dolby Lab. And finally, the bezels of the MateBook X is just 4.4mm, which the Chinese firm says is the narrowest among its rivalry

This flagship laptop is available in two configurations, according to Neowin. The Core i5 model appears to have 8GB RAM, 256GB of storage, and it with a Space Gray body for just $1,099.99. On the other hand, the Core i7 model is Prestige Gold, comes with 8GB RAM and 512GB of storage for $1,299.99.

Huawei MateBook E

The direct predecessor of Huawei MateBook E is last year's MateBook. According to the tech giant, the majority of the issues that arose before have been fixed with this new model. Two of these are the kickstand for an extra adjustable angle and coated keys on the keyboard.

Just like the X model, MateBook E also comes in two configurations of either Intel Core m3 with 4GB RAM and 128GB storage in a Titanium Gray body or a Core i5 Y-series with 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, and a Champagne Gold color. The bigger storage priced at $999.99 while the other laptop is $799.99.

Huawei MateBook D

The MateBook D laptop has is a 15-inch display that's geared more toward the mid-range design. There's only one model for this variant, which offers a Core i5, 8GB RAM, and a tantalizing 1TB of storage. It comes in Champagne Gold color for just $699.99.

The pre-orders of all the Huawei's MateBook series kick off today in the US at Amazon and Newegg. However, Huawei hasn't provided an exact date that this laptop will be made available physically. Assuming that it's sticking with its initial plans, they should begin shipping in next month.
