The MateBook 13 will come in silver and gray with a starting price tag of US$999 and will go up from there depending on which configuration you choose.

Huawei isn’t shy about coming out with some new devices. Their first laptops, the MateBook X and MateBook X Pro laptops were something new to the market, but the company’s latest device, the MateBook 13 is looking to go up against Apple’s latest MacBook Air.

The screen will be 13-inches but will have a 3:2 aspect ratio making the bezels very slim. The resolution comes in at 2160 x 1440 and will support 100% sRGB color gamut.

The MateBook 13 will come with an 8th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor. On the graphics end, the i5 will come with an Intel UHD Graphics 620 GPU and the i7 processor will come with an NVIDIA MX150 dedicated GPU. Granted, it’s not the best graphics card out there if you plan on gaming but the MateBook X Pro had it onboard too and did just fine. As far as storage goes, the i5 configuration will come with 256GB NVMe drive while the i7 model will come with 512GB. Both versions will come with 8GB RAM, two USB Type-C ports, and a headphone jack. Huawei claims the battery life will average you from 7.2 hours for web browsing and 8.2 hours for productivity.

The MateBook 13 will come in silver and gray with a starting price tag of US$999 and will go up from there depending on which configuration you choose. The MateBook 13 will be available starting January 29th.
