I like how thin the case is, despite having a comprehensive keyboard and touchpad incorporated right into it, though, hopefully in the next version id like to see. While we change up the stand to give us more angles, we can adjust it too and also a keyboard that has a backlight. So the huawei mate book e comes powered by intel core processors, with mine being the i5 variant and intel iris, xc graphics, and you can get these 16 gb ram configuration with up to 512 gigabytes of fast ssd storage.
