Honor has unveiled the MagicBook, the first ultrabook released by the Huawei sub-brand. As a Honor-branded device, it is targeted at younger buyers, making it more affordable than the similar Huawei branded MateBook X. Like the MateBook, the MagicBook is an all-aluminum design and packs 8th Gen Intel CPUs and Nvidia’s ultrabook-focused MX150 dedicated GPU.

Customers can choose from either an Intel Core i5-8250u or an Intel Core i7-8550u matched with 8 GB of RAM and mated to a 256 GB SSD. The Nvidia MX150 comes with 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM while the display is a matte 13.3-inch 1080p IPS LCD panel. Interestingly Honor has created a thermal design where both the CPU and GPU share a single fan connected via a heatpipe. The fan draws in cool air from three side vents and blows the heated air from the rear of the device. A large 57.4 Wh battery takes up half of the internal space and is rated at 12 hours of battery life.

The battery is charged via a USB Type-C port, which is joined by one USB 3.0 port and one USB 2.0 port. It also includes a built-in HDMI port and a 3.5mm audio jack. Honor or Huawei smartphone owners can also transfer data wirelessly between the MagicBook and their mobile via the Magic-Link app. The MagicBook should provide decent sound with its 4 Dolby Atmos certified speakers while user authentication is taken care of by a fingerprint reader. It comes preinstalled with Windows 10 Home and can boot in under 8 seconds.

Honor is retailing the Core i5 MagicBook for the equivalent of US$800 while the Core i7 model will fetch around US$910.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
