Huawei announced that you can buy the MateBook in the UK in two hardware versions from Currys online or one of the following physical stores owned by the same retailer: Stratford, Oxford Street, Aberdeen 2in1-HS, Cardiff, Canary Wharf, Manchester Arndale, Bluewater, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Bath, Brighton, Manchester Trafford, Edinburgh Princes Street, Tottenham Court Road. Only the white/gold color version is sold in the UK. The black model that's available in some markets isn't coming to the UK.
If you want a MateBook, you'll have to pay £749.99 for the entry-level configuration, which comes with an Intel Core m3 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 128GB SSD. The only other option in the UK is the £999.99 variation that has an Intel Core m5, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD.
How can this be compared to the Book. The Book has Core i5 and i7 processors, this guy only has Core M. Quite a BIG difference.
I think this is a surface book competitor not surface pro. Considering the surface book starts $1900 this isn't a bad price.
In the same way that you might consider a sloth as the strongest animal in existence.
