Personally, I did no such thing. The only thing I did was to undervolt it using XTU, so now the fan almost never turns on, and the whole thing runs a lot cooler (and very very quiet). The whole 7-9 second boot time still amazes me, every time I switch it on.

Also, in case some people here don't know, default is set to Function key on, then only can use F1-F12. You can actually remap/swap the button to be Function on then can use the Function Keys. It's in the Huawei app on the laptop.
I'm using XTU as well.
However despite I apply and saved, the setting will revert back to original after some restart of com.

Guys, just for your info.
If u happens to get a Toshiba XG5 SSD and could not bear with the slow write speed due to windows update issue, u can change to another SSD.
I'm using Samsung 970 Pro with it right now and doing a clean installation of OS, so far no issue detected :p

Remember to create a Window Boot disk first and download Huawei Drivers from the web.
Do u partition your 1tb drive or maintain only 1 partion?

matebook x pro i7 512GB 16GB

I got a brand new sealed model from "chaplangkarangguni" seller on Caroselle for S$2450 which is reasonably good considering exchange rate for USD1700.

So far so good.....loving the small bezel large 13.9" screen.

Am a MacBook Pro user actually impressed with the build of this laptop. Will install MacOS as a VM on this laptop....

Hello all I am thinking of getting a Matebook X Pro i5 thru a friend from Shanghai. Was wondering if I need the version with the discrete graphics card?

My primary concern is battery life, to do work on MS PPT and Word and net browsing in general. The integrated card would suffice right?

If you're only using it for those, then the integrated graphics card should be sufficient. I bought the i7 one, not because of the MX150, but rather for the 16GB ram and extra ssd storage (though you can just swap out a larger ssd on your own ah), since I need the extra ram, due to the kind of programming work I'm doing.

The battery life, for me personally, is quite great.

Don't think so. I've emailed them in the past about it, but they said they have no updates yet. Maybe you can email them now. They might have a different answer.

Thanks bro, for the reply.

Can I ask a further question - was your i7 model purchased from the US or China? I read online that some users had difficulties with the fingerprint sensor after they did a clean install of English Windows 10 home via the USB Media Tool.

It is not even 1.7k USD where did you get that figure from. With educational pricing about 1.349k
The seller doesn’t even provide any receipt if the buyer want to claim warranty on their own.
Please avoid.

Mine is the US set. I didn't do clean install ah. Signature edition mah, no bloatware other than the Huawei pc control/settings app thingy.
