The HUAWEI MateBook E is a Windows 11 Tablet to Take on the Surface Pro 8

This computer comes in two different styles. The classic tablet style will include a detachable magnetic keyboard, while the sliding keyboard style will let you stack the keyboard and tablet on top of each other. Both options include the M-Pen stylus with 10 hours of battery life.
