The Huawei MateBook X Pro was so popular at launch that it quickly sold out in Australia. Welp, you know what they say about what happens to those who wait.

The Huawei MateBook X Pro is a blatant imitation of the MacBook – but that didn’t stop it from being one of the best laptops of 2018.

    Catch is only selling the i5 model –
