Microsoft Surface Pro 4 was well-received for its highly-innovative features. However, those who are looking for another option may also try the Huawei MateBook. In comparison, the MateBook may not look as great as the Surface Pro 4, but it is definitely worth a thought.

The Huawei MateBook has a 2160 x 1440 pixels resolution, which is a bit less than Microsoft Surface Pro 4's 2736 x 1824 pixels resolution. Both have a 12-inch display and, thus, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 provides great clarity and detailing than the other because of the 20 percent bigger and clearer resolution, writes Mobile & Apps.

The Huawei MateBook is available in two processor variations. It uses a 6th Gen Intel Core M3 or M5 processor. Such a chipset is not that great for heavy-duty activities such as video editing or playing high-end video games. The Microsoft Surface Pro 4 comes in two processor variants too, i5 and i7. This makes the device fit for a plethora of heavy-duty activities.

Due to the processor limitations, the Huawei MateBook is limited to Intel HD Graphics 515 IGD. This is again where the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 scores more than the MateBook. Its i7 variant has an Iris IGD or Intel HD 540. This shows that the MateBook is not meant for gaming but it is a gadget for general everyday use, writes International Business Times.

As one of the deciding factors is always the price of a device, Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is available for $723 on Amazon for the i5 processor, 128GB internal storage and 4GB RAM. The i7 variant with 512GB internal storage and 16GB RAM, costs $1,889 on Amazon. The Huawei NoteBook's price starts at $749 for the 4GB RAM, 128GB internal storage and Intel Core M3 chipset. The M5 variant's price starts at $999.

The M5 variant of the Huawei MateBook is a good option for those who want a powerhouse tablet. However, spending a couple of dollars more can get you a Surface Pro 4, which is definitely a better choice.
