    Decent price but it's worth waiting for the new refresh with better cooling and no trackpad issues.

    •  

      Any idea when that would be?

      It's confirmed the new model uses the exact same fan setup (although with a new shark fin fan) and a perforated base plate. Neither of these will produce much better cooling performance. People were hoping for the dual fan setup used in the 13 inch. Best thing to do is undervolt using ThrottleStop, it's very quick and can reduce top temperatures by around 20 degrees (reducing fan intensity at the same time).

      New model reportedly still has the trackpad issues as well (although it's a super easy fix).

      Much better to buy this deal imo. Even the new MX250 is a tiny upgrade over the MX150.

        Good informed advice.

        "Although it's a super easy fix" - do you mean for Huawei to fix, or can you DIY fix it?

        Cheers for all your info!

          DIY.
          There are two options (there should be YouTube videos for both). One is to open the back up and slide a piece of paper underneath the trackpad and secure it, and another more recommended option is to place some folded paper underneath the two clips holding down the trackpad. Should only take 10 minutes and it'll be perfect.
          Keep in mind this is only if you notice it anyway, a lot of people think it's fine as is.

    Am I correct that the only difference between the i5 and the i7 (for $500) are:

    • .2Ghz CPU
    • 8GB DDR3 Ram
    • 250GB SSD
    • Different GPU (Is there even much improvement?)
  •  

    Anyone using the i5 and rates it? I would just use it for PowerPoints, emails, browsing, basic photo editing etc. I can get trs in a few weeks which makes it pretty attractive to buy.

    I just purchased the i7 - can anyone recommend a reasonably proced notebook dock (dongle)? Need ethernet, usb 3 and hdmi

    Also, i dont think the australian stock includes the matedock 2 - correct me if im wrong

    still waiting for Intel's 10nm or 7nm….14 is depressing

  •  

    The price would've been sweetened a bit more if I had any ebay gift cards left… But glad I didn't jump on the previous deal :-)

    This or x1carbon?

    Dell XPS 9575 2 in 1 or this?

      Hey bud, not sure about thr xps but ive jist received my matebook x pro i7. Great build quality, with an exceptional screen. The mx150 runs light games like dota2 at maximum settings around 60fps. The matedock2 is also included which is worth $60-90. My last asus laptop which i bought 5 years ago was around $1200. Ive never spent $2100 on a laptop but i must say its worth it for me

    When does the new one get released?
