Three other Huawei notebooks — the upgraded MateBook 13 and two models from the MateBook D series — are also available for sale at prices ranging from $1499 to $1199; two of them have the new AMD line of Ryzen processors which (from this writer's experience) work beautifully with Linux.

The HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is our most powerful, portable and intelligent all-purpose device yet, and we’re excited to bring that to the hands of our Australian customers.”
