The Huawei MateBook E is a 12-inch Windows tablet with a keyboard cover and the MatePen – an active stylus. Its main feature is a fan-less, aluminum body with premium features like a fingerprint reader. Thanks to its Intel Core m or Core i processors it is powerful enough to replace a notebook. Here is everything you should know about the Huawei MateBook E.
- Elegant, full aluminum body
- High-resolution 12-inch screen
- Fast Intel Core m/i processors
- Keyboard dock
- MatePen active stylus
Huawei MateBook E: The Basics
While I didn‘t review the MateBook E yet, I‘ve been very impressed with the MateBook – the previous version. Compared to that, the design is identical with its full aluminum body which is just 6.9 millimeters thin. Without the keyboard, it weighs just 640 gram. Because of the nice design, the tablet feels very elegant and is just nice to look at.
It offers a fingerprint reader on its side and a USB Type C port. In addition to that, it supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1.
The MateBook E comes with a 12-inch IPS screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1440 pixels. It is a very nice display with a 1000:1 contrast and a brightness of 400 nits. You can use your fingers to navigate the touchscreen, but also use an active pen. Usually, the MatePen costs extra but is sometimes included.
Depending on the version, it runs an Intel Core m3 or Core i5 processor of the 7th Kaby Lake generation. Other specs include 4GB to 8GB of RAM and a 128GB, 256GB or 512GB SSD.
MateBook E With Keyboard & Dock
With the tablet, you get a leather-style keyboard cover. The Huawei MateBook does not have an integrated kickstand so the keyboard cover is holding it up. Unlike with a lot of competitors, you can‘t angle the keyboard up a bit.
If the USB Type C port is not enough, you can also get the so-called MateDock. With that, you get a lot of extra ports. Usually, the dock has to be purchased separately.
