Honor MagicBook 14 & MagicBook 15 with Ryzen 5 3500U launched
Honor has managed in a very short time and despite the great adversity of recent months, to make its brand synonymous with value-for-money options in all areas of technology where it operates. Most people have associated it mainly with the smartphone and wearables categories, where it is a huge success, however, the company is here to offer solutions in the category of mainstream laptops.
One of it’s latest product is Honor MagicBook 15 , a laptop characterized by premium all-metal construction body with low weight (1.53kg) and thickness (16.8mm), honest performance for the average user, useful add-ons and great battery life, at a price you will never find in its competitors.
More specifically, in Honor MagicBook 15 we find a 15.6 inch FHD FullView screen with minimal margins (bezels) and certification by TuV Rheinland to protect eyes from blue radiation, so you can watch multimedia and work enjoying yourself . Even the 1MP webcam is hidden in a pop-up mechanism on the keyboard to keep the entire surface of the screen free, but also provides privacy when you are not using it.
In terms of hardware and performance, the company has equipped AMD Ryzen 5-3500U with 8GB memory RAM DDR4 and 256GB storage SSD . This chipset also incorporates the Radeon Vega 8 Graphics graphics processor , so you can keep your head calm while watching online content (eg Netflix ), surf the Internet or while playing medium games.
For connectivity options, 2x USB Type-A slots (1x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0), a full-size HDMI for external screen or TV connection, 3.5mm for headphones and USB Type-C socket for transfering data and charging the Honor MagicBook 15 is given, while the WiFi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 antennas guarantee a perfect connection to networks and peripherals (keyboard, mouse, etc.).
Honor MagicBook 15 packs a monstrous 42Wh (typical capacity) battery. The battery can be recharged with 65W power adapter (USB Type C), and comes with a fast charger can charge 46 percent in just 30 minutes.
Both the CPU and the GPU inside the Honor MagicBook have a single fan via heat pipes. It takes in cool air from three vents and blows out the hot air.
The very interesting extras that you can hardly find at this price are worth mentioning the 2x 2W Dolby Atmos technology speakers for an immersive 3D sound experience, the built -in fingerprint sensor on the power button for biometric unlocking, as well as the Honor Magic-link 2.0 function Allows you to view your phone’s screen on the Honor MagicBook 15’s screen to transfer files between devices and edit them on your laptop, while at the same time you can send messages to your colleagues on your phone using the same keyboard and mouse.
As for the pricing, Honor MagicBook 14/15 with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage is priced at 599 Euros and will be available from March in Germany, the UK, Spain and other countries. The pricing for the 8GB RAM+512GB storage version is £ 549 will be available from April in some countries in Europe.
