The Huawei MateBook is the Chinese company's first hybrid device. The 12-inch tablet runs Windows 10, and clips into a keyboard dock.

The foldable dock cover uses magnets to reinforce itself as a stand.

The tablet's stylus has a built in laser pointer, if you're into that.

Magnets in the flap also snap the portfolio shut.

You can use it as a tablet you navigate with your digits...

...or with a stylus. Expect to buy that separately, though in some regions it could come bundled.

It's pressure-sensitive, so the harder you push, the thicker your lines (and vice versa).

A front-facing camera makes photo conferences (or selfies) possible.

There's no camera on the MateBook's back.

The clip-on case keeps the tablet secure while you're on the go.

It comes in this camel-brown color, and also black.

A separate dock you can buy also has a matching case.

Unfold it and you can carry the stylus, a connector dock and some cables.

Here's where you fit the MateBook to its case.

This magnet is strong enough to keep the case connected even when it's dangling.

The case's keys are wide.

They're bouncy, too.

Here's a closeup.

Windows 10 asks if you want to enter or exit tablet mode.

It's a thin device...

...with a fingerprint reader on its spine.

Here's another look at the front-facing camera.

And here's what the back looks like.

The MateBook uses the USB Type-C connector port.

A separate dock connects the MateBook to other devices, like a projector or TV. There's also an Ethernet port.

Press this button to fire the laser pointer.

Press these buttons while the pen is away from the screen to either advance a slide in a presentation, or open Microsoft OneNote.

If you're close to the MateBook, they can also erase what you'd hand-written or take a screenshot.

Laser pointers are fun.

The laser is bright and has a long, long range (even though we show it off at short range here).
