PLANO, Texas, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Following the U.S. launch at CES 2019, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 won eight "Best of CES" awards and made four "Best Laptops at CES" lists, while the MediaPad M5 lite won one "Best of CES" award and was included on Chicago Tribune's "Products that Wowed Us At CES" list for a total of 14 recognitions.
The media cited the HUAWEI MateBook 13 for "one-upping" a bevy of competitors in terms of style, substance and value. A new addition to Huawei's ultra-slim notebook line-up, the HUAWEI MateBook 13 delivers powerful functions without compromising portability. It comes equipped with the latest Intel® Whiskey Lake processor, an NVIDIA® GeForce® MX150 (25 Watt TDP) option, and an industry-leading FullView Touch Screen with 88 percent screen-to-body ratio. The HUAWEI MateBook 13 will begin selling in the U.S. on Jan. 29 at Amazon and Newegg, and at additional top consumer electronics retailers in February.
The HUAWEI MediaPad M5 lite was recognized for its family-friendly features such as Kid's Corner, advanced Eye-comfort Mode and a built-in fingerprint sensor to enable parental controls. As children are frequent tablet users, Huawei created Kid's Corner to provide a customized environment for children while enabling parents to set time limits and control access to content. The built-in fingerprint sensor enables parents to create unique user profiles and set access parameters in advance to make it easy and convenient to share a tablet among the family. The HUAWEI MediaPad M5 lite is exceptionally priced at $299 and comes with the latest HUAWEI M-Pen lite stylus. It will begin selling late January at U.S. retailers including Amazon and Newegg.
