Huawei MateBook 13
The Huawei MateBook 13 offers powerful performance, a comfortable keyboard and a roomy trackpad in an uninspired chassis. Throw in a serviceable but somewhat dim display and mediocre battery life, and you’ve got a good but ultimately unexciting laptop.

Will users be willing to spend around $300 more for Thunderbolt 3, killer battery life, and a larger, higher-resolution screen? Especially when that does not come with increased performance? I'm not sure, and that leads me to have uncertainties about the Matebook X Pro's future.
