3:2 is a great aspect ratio, that I agree. I am using a Lenovo Miix 720 and I like the aspect ratio myself.

I don't deny that buying it locally will not be cheap, but buying a laptop for more than 2 grand without warranty is a big risk.

Touch wood I have Bought 10 over Laptops so far it’s been good.... worst case can send back to USA I suppose

I saw the miix 720 , but nowdays it’s basically no thin vezel no talk .... haha

out of curiosity, did you manage to order from the microsoft.com site? I tried to buy using comgateway and alternative forwarder services (MyUs, etc) and order never goes through. Contacted MS and they told me they wont ship to forwarders; MyUs has separately confirmed this.
So was curious to know if you found a workaround?
Thanks!
Hmm I didn’t know this, I was charged the amount on my credit card ....otherwise can wait for amazon?

Just throwing it out there. If you have to pick between the Matebook X Pro and the X1C 6th gen, if both are the same price, which would you go for? The reason for this is that I can kind of get the X1C at roughly the same price as the Matebook through my organisation (at around 2k+).The upside is that lenovo has the warranty support for 3 years. However, the Matebook has that gorgeous display and aspect ratio.

Keen on opinions.

I’ll prefer the Huawei due to the 3:2 factor
And 91% bezel to screen ratio

An update, Microsoft has shipped the laptop to Comgateway USA, Comgateway will be sending it to me on the 9th July.
