Huawei Matebook X Pro
 
The laptop just got released in US - finally - at around US$1700 for the i7/16/512/mx150 variant. I really like the 3x2 aspect ratio and the overall look of the new matebook from Huawei. There has been no word as to whether this will be coming to SG.

So I am gathering opinions on whether it'd be worth it/safe to buy it from the US and ship it to Singapore through a forwarder service of some kind? Obviously the warranty won't be valid in Singapore.

Thoughts anyone?

Good laptop but no any warranty cover or change parts :s22:

Yeah i also saw in another hwz thread that huawei sg told him no international warranty.

Btw, which website are u all buying the matebook x pro from? The cheapest i see is on newegg.com i think, the price:
1 item(s): S$2,370.78
Estimated Duty: S$191.36
Estimated Shipping:S$31.03
Estimated Total:
S$2,593.17

Im also very tempted to buy this, seems like the build quality and screen is the best out there

Hey. Yeah, the build quality, screen and its aspect ratio is really tempting. I've also just checked again with Huawei SG and they still cannot confirm if it's coming to SG.

Thank you for contacting Huawei.

Pertaining your inquiry, please be informed that we haven't received any information of new Matebook release in Singapore, please stay tuned on Huawei Singapore Facebook page.
Anyone else have experience with importing laptop from US without warranty? My only worry is that I damn suay and end up DOA or something like that. Really burn $2k.

watzup_ken 30-05-2018 10:04 PM

Not worth to spend that much money for something with no warranty. For that money, there are plenty of good enough alternatives.

xXxJavierxXx 04-06-2018 06:19 PM

Hopefully huawei bring this to singapore!

Thinker 07-06-2018 07:49 PM

Donít buy laptops without warranty.

Do keep us updated when you receive it.
The only issue is the US-pin charger but since it uses usb-c to charge, can simply buy those 45w usb-c charger from lazada.

The microsoft store got updated with new stock, priced at 1499 for the i7. With shipping fee, should be just a little over 2k sgd. Very tempting.

ccmheoa 16-06-2018 11:05 PM

Yup sure, Actually once you factor in shipment and gst , it is going to above 2K ... but well you can’t buy any laptop on the market now with just 2K that has this kind of specs.

3:2 format is great!
Power shouldn’t be a problem since it used usbc charging, this means usbc power banks will work as well.

I saw the surface book 2, but it’s disgusting that the basic model at 2188 isn’t even 8th gen. Same goes for the surface laptop still 7th gen. I might have gone for a surface laptop if it had been a 8th gen.

One thing for sure , even if they sell in Singapore it’s not going to be at the price I’m paying....

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!

watzup_ken 17-06-2018 09:32 PM

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.

xXxJavierxXx 18-06-2018 01:16 AM

Anyone adventurous enough to buy from taobao?

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

Just add to your cart, the price will automatically change to student price Le.

Just to add on , compared to my dell xps 13.... blows it away in every manner except for battery life.....

How do u guys arrange shipment? What are ur shipping costs to Singapore?

They use freight forwarding services like comgateway. Microsoft will ship to the provided address and then the company will ship the thing to you.

As an update, I've decided to be kiasu and go with the X1C6 instead, with 3 years warranty, a bit more than what would've cost me for the Matebook. Really such a waste they don't offer this locally..

tspurs 08-07-2018 11:19 AM

I got an i7 US set from a seller on Carousell. Keyboard is a bit shallow compared to my previous daily driver (Surface Book 1) but still okay. Other than that, everything looks and feels solid. The screen is terrific!

Were you asked to provide credit card info when setting up PayPal payment on Microsoft site? I was asked and the I gave my sg card details but still failed placing order. Do you need to first send money to PayPal in USD, or simply deposit SGD?

Thank you

You create a PayPal account and link your card to the account. Then on Microsoft website, you just log in using your account credentials and agree on the charges. If you're filling in details on Microsoft website, it isn't PayPal.

Lets just say it was considerably more than buying from Microsoft Store in USA for USD1499 + shipping + GST.:s13: Advantage was that I could get it immediately.

Just saw someone selling 2.6k on caro

fast_andfurious 15-07-2018 03:56 AM

I was at the Shanghai Huawei store along Nanjing Road. It's retailing for 8699RMB. Worth it to buy if you are in Shanghai. Felt it - built quality & screen were good.

But I decided to save money and buy the Xiaomi Mi notebook 13.3 with the similar specs for 4999RMB.

Can change win10 to English easily?

For Xiaomi need to replace install win 10 for that?

Wonder if there's plans to launch the X Pro here.
