Hmm. Will have to view some reviews. Anyone got thoughts on this compared to a Dell XPS 13? I've got one with similar specs (i7, 512GB SSD etc) but the Dell still has a few ports. The Huawei is slimmer and lighter though.

That's a fantastic price at newegg, they offer a 15 day RMA window from the delivery date of your item(amazon is 30 days iirc) then say you must deal the the manufacturer directly(which won't work for us as it's a US specific warranty).

That is why I went with Amazon. Would rather pay the 65 extra and deal with them for warranty issues

Purchased from NewEgg and just got an email from Fedex 

 

 

 

We are trying to clear your shipment coming from NewEgg with NZ Customs and require a client code to do so.

 

A client code is basically a registration with customs and is required anytime a shipment with a value of over NZD$1000 enters/exits the country.

 

There are no fees associated with this service and the code can be used many times and will only expire if not used for more than 2 years however we need to confirm if these goods are for you as an individual or for the company.

 

 

 

You will need to:

 

- Fill out the application forms

 

- Provide a copy of your ID (Passport, birth certificate or drivers licence.)

 

 

 

Please note

 

- An importer code can take 24-48 business hours to be issued.

 

- NZ Customs will require the signature to be hand signed.

 

- As the value of your shipment is over NZD$400, NZ Customs will claim taxes.

 

- The form needs to be physically signed as customs do not accept e-signatures.

 

 

 

To ensure a quick clearance process, please contact NZ Customs on 0800 428 786 and press 3 to speak to an officer to ensure that you do not have an existing client code prior to providing your complete forms.

 

 

 

Please complete the forms ASAP and return them back along with the appropriate attachments (preferably in the form of a .pdf file) to 5179326@fedex.com so that we can clear your package. If you are sending the forms in a separate email, please send it with the tracking number as the subject so that we know which shipment the forms apply to.

 

 

 

Please note that FedEx has a 5 working days policy on goods staying in FedEx stores. Should we not receive the form by 5 workings days from arrival date, the package will be sent back to shipper at shipper’s expense.

 

 

 

If there are any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Looks lovely - Do they make a version with more RAM? I ideally need 20 + GB in my day2day machine.
