MacBook Pro 2016, iPad Pro 2 Still Unheard Of, Microsoft And Huawei Pokes Fun At Apple Product
Just a few weeks ago, Microsoft launched new promotion ads for Surface devices that slammed the iPad Pro and the MacBook. Now, the new Huawei MateBook joins the club by doing the exact same thing. In fact, it literally joined the setting of the last Surface ad.
The lack of new iPads and MacBooks has definitely been Apple's weakness lately. Fans and followers of the company have been constantly waiting for Apple to at least say something about the new products. However, September is halfway done with no real clues about the company's plans.
Since the iPad Pro 2 and MacBook Pro 2016 have not made an appearance yet, the new Huawei MateBook decided to compare itself to Apple's previously released product, the iPad Pro. Well, if only Apple had released a new device, then it could probably compete with new models. Since the iPad Pro is pretty much from last season, it may have a hard time beating 2016 products.
Huawei MateBook Specs:
The new Huawei MateBook's ad showed off all its special features. According to the said commercial, the Huawei MateBook is lightweight and comes with a fingerprint sensor. It also runs Windows 10 like the Surface Pro 4. However, the MateBook does not have the same ports as the Surface Pro 4.
It does have a USB C to USB A cable, though, as the device only has a single USB C port. It basically relies all its connection needs to that one single port. Overall, the MateBook is like the Surface Pro 4 in many ways. It even targets the same crowd which is the business sect. As per Huawei's website, the MateBook is described as "the new style of business".
GSMarena says that this release is important for Huawei in its quest to establish its name in the United States. This is also a crucial launch for the company's entrance in the Windows PC market.
Huawei Book Price:
The Huawei MateBook is currently available for a starting price of $699. This price is for the Core m3 128 GB unit and it does not include the full set up. You can get the stylus for $60 and the dock for $90. If you want the full PC experience, you can get the keyboard for $130.
