honor is currently holding an event in Shanghai, where it is introducing two new products: the honor 10, and surprisingly enough, the honor MagicBook. This is honor’s first-ever Windows 10 machine, and it bears a pretty striking resemblance to Apple’s MacBook laptops.
Beyond the resemblance, the MagicBook is quite well-equipped. It ships with Intel’s latest eight generation Core i5-8250U or i7-8550U processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, and even an Nvidia GeForce MX150 GPU. It also has a 14-inch 1080p display, and thanks to the 81% screen-to-body ratio, the MagicBook has small bezels too.
Aside from that, honor is also quite proud of the MagicBook’s thinness. Measuring 9.6mm to 15.8mm, honor claims this is one of the slimmest 14-inch notebooks in the market. The keyboard, on the other hand, have about 1.3mm of travel with three levels of brightness.
Other specifications of the MagicBook include a 57.4Whr battery – it’s said to provide up to 12 hours of battery life – two full-sized USB-A ports, a USB-C connection, and even an HDMI port.
Pricing is where the honor MagicBook really shines – the base model with a Core i5 processor retails at only 4,999 Chinese yuan – that’s about RM3,095. The higher-end Core i7 model, on the other hand, goes for 5,699 yuan (approximately RM3,530). The MagicBook will go on pre-order later today in China, and it remains to be seen if the laptop will be available outside of the country.
