Honor offers a good multimedia laptop at a fair price with the MagicBook Pro

Honor MagicBook Pro

Large display, fast processor, sufficient storage, and an aluminum case - for around 900 Euros (~$1,054), the Honor MagicBook Pro actually offers everything that a multimedia laptop needs.
Andreas Osthoff (translated by Stephanie Chamberlain), 🇩🇪 🇵🇹 ...

The MagicBook Pro from Honor is a 16.1-inch multimedia laptop. In contrast to the cheaper MagicBook models, which in turn are based on the MateBook D models from Huawei, the MagicBook Pro is based on the design of the more expensive MateBook models such as the MateBook 13 or the MateBook X Pro. So customers get a fancy aluminum case in dark gray that is also convincing in terms of stability.

Honor uses a fast AMD Ryzen processor of the 45-watt performance class. So there's plenty of CPU power, and the integrated Radeon GPU is perfectly sufficient for all common multimedia applications. However, the gaming performance isn't very high; so if you also want to play modern titles on your laptop, you should rather look for a device with a dedicated GPU.

The matte IPS display is sufficiently bright and covers the small sRGB color space completely. Since the display can be calibrated very well, nothing stands in the way of editing photos/videos. The emissions are also okay, because the two fans are usually completely disabled. Only under high load do they emit a rather high-frequency noise, which is a bit annoying.

The manufacturer could work a bit more on this, just like with the speakers and the optional Performance Mode. This mainly leads to a louder fan noise but hardly to a higher performance.

These points of criticism can hardly take away from the good overall impression, though. For 899 Euros (~$1,053), you get a good multimedia device without any real weak points. You can find more information on the device in our detailed review:

I grew up with modern consumer electronics and my first computer was a Commodore C64, which encouraged my interest in building my own systems. I started working as a review editor for Notebookcheck during my dual studies at Siemens. Currently, I am mainly responsible for dealing with business laptops and mobile workstations. It’s a great experience to be able to review the latest devices and technologies and then compare them with each other.

I've been fascinated with technology ever since I got my very first Android smartphone, which was quite a while ago. The power packed into such a small footprint still amazes me. Learning to program made my understanding of technology deeper, and at the same time, it expanded my interest to the area of desktop computers and laptops. All this led me to enjoy reading and watching reviews of new devices, and that's how I stumbled upon Notebookcheck. I immediately found their reviews to be very comprehensive, and luckily, I've even had the chance of translating them since 2019. When it comes to the huge field of technology, I'm currently also interested in specializing in Java programming.
