Huawei has unveiled the Matebook X, a new Windows 10 laptop that features a slim metal body that’s reminiscent of Apple’s MacBook. The Matebook X will be available this summer and will start at around $1,569.

At first glance, the Matebook X can easily be mistaken for a MacBook. The only overt design difference here is the Huawei logo on the Matebook X’s lid. Huawei’s new notebook is only 12.5mm thick and only weighs 2.31 pounds. For comparison, Apple’s 12-inch MacBook is 13mm thick and weighs 2.03 pounds, according to CNET.

The Matebook X features a fanless design and an aluminum chassis. Huawei says that the exact material it used to make the notebook actually helps in absorbing heat potentially avoiding any overheating issues that’s usually the case with laptops.

The Matebook X is also the first laptop ever to feature Dolby’s Atmos Sound System. Dolby and Huawei worked together to create the speakers that are located on top of the keyboard. This is why the Matebook X will also come with Dolby’s software that will allow users to optimize the sound quality depending on what kind of media they’re consuming.

The Huawei Matebook X features a 13-inch display with a screen resolution of 2,160 x 1,440. The side bezels are incredibly thin at only 4.4mm thick making the display appear even larger than it actually is. The Matebook X also comes with a full-sized, backlit keyboard along with a large Precision Touchpad just beneath it, according to Ars Technica.

The power button, located by the top-right corner of the keyboard, also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. The Matebook X’s fingerprint scanner is also able to recognize different people’s prints. This makes it easier for several people to share the notebook without worrying about security and privacy.

As for internal specs, the Huawei Matebook X can be configured to come with Intel’s Core i5 or i7 Kaby Lake processors. For memory, users have the option for either 4GB or 8GB of RAM, and storage options include 256GB and 512GB SSD. The Matebook X is equipped with Intel’s HD 620 graphics.

Although the Matebook X is incredibly thin, it doesn’t skimp on battery life. The upcoming notebook comes with a 41.4Whr battery that Huawei claims can last up to 10 hours on a single charge.

For ports, the Matebook X sports two USB Type-C ports; one on each side. Although USB-C technology is slowly gaining popularity, Huawei recognizes that a lot of people haven’t fully transitioned to the new port yet. This is why Huawei will include a USB-C MateDock 2.0 along with the Matebook X. The dock will give users a USB-A port, an HDMI port, a VGA port and another USB-C port.

The Huawei Matebook X will be available in the United States in space gray and prestige gold. The rose gold (pink) color option will only be available in China.

Huawei also announced the Matebook E and the Matebook D. The Matebook E seems like an upgraded version of the original Matebook. The E model now comes with a 2K resolution display instead of 1080p full HD, 9 hours of battery life and an updated leather folio keyboard, according to The Verge. The Matebook E starts at around $1,120.

The Matebook D, on the other hand, is a 15-inch laptop featuring mid-range specs intended for a wider range of consumers. The Matebook D offers configuration options of i5/i7 processors and 4GB/8GB/16GB of RAM. Users also have the choice of simply having a 1TB hard drive, or have it supplemented with an additional SSD. The Matebook D starts at around $896.
