20 April 2018
Huawei again pleases its fans with new gadgets. This time, we are not talking about a smartphone: the Chinese giant introduced its first laptop under the Honor brand.The new device is called Honor MagicBook. The laptop boasts an IPS screen with a diagonal of 14 inches and a resolution of Full HD. At the same time, the thickness of the MagicBook frames is only 5.2 mm. Thus the display occupies 81% of the area of the cover, which, by the way, can be opened 180 degrees. The notebook will also pleasantly surprise with its stuffing. The basic Honor MagicBook is equipped with an eighth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. There is also a richer package. For some extra charge, the user gets a Core i7-8550U processor and 8GB of RAM. Both versions of the notebook are equipped with a discrete graphics card Nvidia GeForce MX150 with 2 GB of memory. Among the other nice features of MagicBook there is a keyboard with full-size keys and backlight with three brightness levels, four speakers with Dolby Sound support, as well as a fingerprint scanner. The battery capacity of the device is 57Wh. The manufacturer claims a battery life of 12 hours of Full HD video playback or web surfing and 13 hours of document work. For all this, the thickness of the device is 15.8 mm and the weight is only 1.47 kg. Chinese users can already place an order for the new Honor MagicBook, while the start of deliveries is scheduled for April 23. The laptop, which looks like a MacBook, will be available in silver, gray and purple color options for $796 and $908, depending on the package. Unfortunately, we can't say for sure if the device will be sold outside of the home market.
