Reviews for the Honor MagicBook 14, Ryzen 5 4500U

85% Honor MagicBook 14 review: way more performance in the same chassis
Source: Neowin English
Just from looking at it, the new MagicBook 14 doesn't feel all that new compared to the previous iteration, The design is exactly the same as before, and that has benefits and disadvantages. It feels sturdy and premium, just as it did before, and the design feels classic, yet it has a bit of flair thanks to the blue chamfered edges, which give it a but more personality. On the other hand, keeping the webcam under the keyboard is a terrible decision, and it's just not a good way to use a camera. You're very limited in how you can position yourself in the frame, and it's especially problematic when so many people are working from home.

Unboxing and first impressions of the new Honor MagicBook 14
Source: Neowin English
Earlier this year, I reviewed the Honor MagicBook 14, with a Ryzen 5 3500U processor. The laptop had its advantages, but considering Ryzen 4000 had already been announced at that point, I couldn't help but wish the MagicBook 14 had newer internals. This week, Honor did just that, and announced a refresh of the MagicBook 14 and 15, in addition to the new MagicBook Pro.

AMD Vega 6 R4000: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 6 CUs (= 384 shaders) and a clock of up to 1.500 MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


R5 4500U: Mobile Hexy-Core APU using six Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.3 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1500 MHz. The CPU does not support SMT / Hyperthreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.38 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.


Honor:

In 2014 Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. Occasionally the products are also called Huawei Honor.

The market share of Honor products is manageable, but there are several reviews on Honor smartphones with average ratings (as of 2016).


85%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
