Sub-brand of Huawei, Honor ata large-scale presentation introduced two new models of compact lightweight notebooks from the MagicBook series. Between themselves, the Honor MagicBook 13 and Honor MagicBook 15 devices differ only in the size of the diagonal of the screen.
The younger model MagicBook 13 received an IPS display(1920x1080) with a diagonal of 13.3 inches, and the mass of the device was 1.38 kg, with a thickness of 15.9 mm. The older model with a similar IPS monitor (1920x1080) has a diagonal of 15.6 inches and a mass of 1.53 kg with a thickness of 16.9 mm.
The hardware of both laptops runs onhybrid processor of the Ryzen 3000 series in various versions. The buyer can choose a more expensive Ryzen 7 3700U chip model (4 cores, 8 threads, 2.3 / 4.0 GHz, 4 MB L3 cache) with a Radeon Vega 10 graphics accelerator, or stop on a simpler processor: Ryzen 5 3500U ( 4 cores, 8 threads, 2.1 / 3.7 GHz, 4 MB L3 cache) with Radeon Vega 8 graphics accelerator. Depending on version, the RAM can be delivered in volumes from 8 to 16 GB, and the main memory in volumes 256 and 512 GB.
Autonomous power is provided by batteries56 Wh for the younger Honor MagicBook 13 and a smaller battery for 42 Wh for the older Honor MagicBook 15. Such an unusual package is made in the spirit of the concept demonstrated a day earlier on the models Huawei MateBook D 15 and MateBook D 14.
Batteries support fastcharging. A 65 W charger is able to increase the charge of the MagicBook 13 model from 0 to 46% in 30 minutes, while from a full charge this laptop can work without “refueling” energy for 9.5 hours while watching video continuously.
Notebooks have three USB connectors (one Type-C,one USB-A 3.0 and USB-A 2.0) and HDMI. The power button with a built-in fingerprint sensor is located on the right side of the surface of the laptop, outside the keyboard block.
The developers have chosen an interesting place forvideo cameras (720p), placing it not in the usual place above the screen, but embedding it in the F6 key, located in the center of the top row of the keyboard. Users have yet to appreciate the convenience of such a layout. Managed by Linux and Windows 10 laptops.
The clearance company has now begunpre-orders for laptops, but sales are scheduled for December 1. The price of the MagicBook 13 starts from $ 510 (Linux, Ryzen 5, 8 / 512GB) to 555 (Linux or Windows 10 Ryzen 5 or 7 with 8 / 512GB). Model MagicBook 15 will be sold in the range from 470 to 555 dollars, depending on the configuration.
