HUAWEI has announced that the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 has officially sold out, and on the first day they were available too. The Chinese company held roadshows at four different locations across Malaysia to ensure customers can easily access the laptop – IOI City Mall, Putrajaya, Sunway Pyramid, Petaling Jaya, Queensbay Mall, Penang, and Imago Mall, Sabah.
According to Huawei, one customer named Darren Chin even lined up at the event as early as 6AM on 18 January 2020
“I have been queuing in line for the pre-order sales at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya since 6am. I am a teacher, so a practical laptop is very important to me. My laptop stopped working recently and that’s when I found about the MateBook D 15. I was instantly attracted by its features and its value for money”
Whether or not Darren Chin is a real person is debatable, I mean it wouldn’t be out of Huawei’s remit to fabricate something like this and that quote looks made up AF. But… at the same time, this Darren Chin dude could actually be a real person. Who knows!?! We certainly don’t. Regardless, it doesn’t matter. That’s not the story here.
At the sales launch, customers were able to purchase the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 at the attractive price of RM,2499 while receiving freebies worth RM1,287. The freebies consist of a copy of Microsoft 365, a Bluetooth mouse and a FreeBuds 3.
HUAWEI’s new direction of focusing on an all-scenario ecosystem since came about last year after Donald Trump labelled the company a national security threat and subsquently banned it from doing business with US based companies. To be honest, strengthening its ecosystem like this house a more holistic offering is probably the best thing HUAWEI have done in a while. Can it reach the heights of Apple’s comprehensive ecosystem? It’s certainly trying to but only time will tell.
Launched in China, the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 has earned a high consumer rating in the China market. Following that positive response, Malaysia is the first overseas country to launch the MateBook D 15. Lucky us, I guess. No news on how many units exactly Huawei prepared for it’s roadshow but it’s all been snapped up and it’s no surprise. Priced at RM 2,499 and offering standard configuration of 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD and 1TB HDD, the MateBook D 15 offers incredibly value for money. We managed to get our hands on a review unit and we have to say, so far, so good.
