    looking for a slim laptop for travel and to replace my old ultrabook. Between the Dell XPS 13 9370 and the Huawei Matebook X Pro. Similar specs both i7-8550u 16gb Ram 512 Gb ssd both around $1500.

    What would you guys get?

    The Dell, only because I have a previous XPS13 that's rock-solid.

    [and even though I'm running an ASUS 2-in-1 with the same specs...]

    I agree. Get the Dell. The xps 13 line has been solid for quite sometime. If the mate was cheaper, depending how much I would say look at it

    What's the support model for a Huawei laptop? I'm going to assume it's much worst than Dell.

    Not much. If I do get it its from the Microsoft Store so I am getting the $29 ADH and extended warranty. I hear the Microsoft Store is really good with support.

    Make sure that Microsoft is the company that's going to support that laptop. Most times it's the hardware manufacturer. I've dealt with Microsoft hardware support for my Surface Pro and it wasn't that good. Average at best.

    Did you do it over the phone? Because I have a few actually B&M Microsoft stores near me that I can bring it to.

    Yes, it was over the phone. As usual Microsoft outsources they're phone support to India.

    No experience with that MateBook, but I was a MacBook Pro snob for about ten years until trying an XPS 15 two years ago. I sold it for an XPS 13 9370 and am thrilled with this little powerhouse. Great road warrior machine.

    Yea I had a surface pro 2 years back and had a lot of issues. The phone and chat support was ass. But I hear going to a B&M is apple store like levels of ease and support.
