Are you interested in one of the sleekest Windows 10 hybrids available? Look no further than the Huawei MateBook. Available in gold or gray, this tablet borders on being one of the most beautiful we’ve seen; accessories make it one of the most versatile.

The Huawei MateBook has an all-metal design; it reminds me of a slightly smaller and more powerful iPad Pro, actually.

The MateBook has a 12″ IPS Liquid Crystal Display with 2160×1440 resolution. It is 6.9 mm thick and weighs 1.4 pounds, so it’s really easy to slip into any backpack. Its 33.7Wh high-density lithium battery is supposed to deliver up to “9 hours of work, nine hours of video playback or 29 hours of music.” Brest of all, its quick-charge battery can reach 60% capacity in one hour, and a full charge in just 2.5 hours.

The accessories include the MateDock (which attaches all of the ports that you might need to the tablet’s USB Type-C port), a backlit keyboard cover case, and the MatePen which has 2,048 levels of sensitivity and a built-in laser pointer.

You can find the MateBook, starting at $699.99; it is available in Microsoft stores and online at Microsoft, Amazon [affiliate link], and Newegg. Dan will have our review up soon.
