Huawei announced a trio of new MateBook laptops back in May for its second shot at breaking into the laptop space after the lukewarm reception to the original MateBook last year. The three new laptops are the MateBook X, a slim ultrabook; the MateBook E, a second try at fixing the problems of the original MateBook design; and the MateBook D, a 15.6-inch laptop designed for mainstream users. Now, Huawei has announced that you’ll be able to preorder the new MateBooks in the US on June 30th through Newegg and Amazon.
