Huawei unveiled its MateBook convertible Windows tablet less than a month ago, and it looks like their expectations are not as high as market analysts anticipated. This new slate features a slim design and high-end specs, also being priced accordingly. Unfortunately, its specs and pricing push the Huawei MateBook in the business/enterprise segment of the market.

According to DigiTimes, the MateBook "is expected to achieve annual shipments of 400,000 units, a lot lower than market watchers' expectations of 1-2 million units." Sources from the supply chain also reveal that Huawei needs to become familiar with the notebook channel and business model to increase shipments.

Huawei MateBook is priced between $699 USD and $1,599 USD, sporting a 12-inch display with 2,160X1,440 pixels, up to 8 GB RAM, and an Intel Core M processor to match them. This 2-in-1 Windows 10 convertible tablet also weighs less than 1.4 pounds, making it an interesting choice for those looking to get such a device that is lighter than the Microsoft Surface Pro 4.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
