The Matebook X Pro is Huawei’s premier-tier laptop, equivalent to Apple’s MacBook Pro or Dell’s XPS 13 range. It’s a lightweight and sleek touchscreen, and features a particularly striking 91-percent screen-to-body ratio. This means there’s hardly a bezel around the 13.9in 3K display (don’t worry, you still get a webcam, it’s just tucked away under a clever pop-up button on the keyboard).
The premium quality of the Matebook X Pro means premium prices too, with the base model starting at £1,299. With this year’s release of the even pricier Matebook X Pro (2019) however (Euro prices start at 1599€ – UK and US prices aren’t available yet), you can score a major discount on last year’s Matebook X Pro on Amazon, AO, and Currys.
We’ve outlined where to pick up the best price per spec below:
On Amazon, the Core i5 model with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage that usually costs £1,299 is now £1,049, while the Core i7 model with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage is now £1,249, reduced from £1,499. Both models have a £250 discount. See these deals now.
If you miss Amazon’s deal on the 256GB model, you can also pick it up for the same price over at AO.com or from Currys. Currys also has £200 off a Core i7 model with 512GB storage and 16GB RAM. This version isn’t available on Amazon or AO – go to Currys to see this deal.
On Amazon, there’s also an offer on the Core i7, 1TB model with 16GB RAM, which has £200 off. This reduces the price to £1,499 from the original £1,699.99 RRP. Note, this model is temporarily out of stock, but you can still place an order, and Amazon will deliver it when it becomes available.
Huawei has drawn much of the aesthetics for the Matebook X Pro from the MacBook Pro, but those keeping score will find that the Matebook X Pro is actually 0.3mm thinner and 400g lighter than the Macbook Pro.
