New Honor MagicBook X 14 Pro and MagicBook Pro X 16 Pro laptops released with Intel Raptor Lake processors
Honor has reissued the MagicBook X Pro series, which remains available in 14-inch and 16-inch sizes. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Honor has given the series a taste of the Raptor Lake architecture, which Intel debuted earlier this year at CES 2023. For reference, both sizes have 16:10 IPS displays that peak at 300 nits, although there are some display differences.
Namely, the 14-inch version has a 2,240 x 1,400-pixel native resolution and a 1,500:1 contrast ratio. By contrast, the 16-inch version operates at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels and at 1,200:1. Additionally, the 14-inch is 15.9 mm thick and weighs 1.34 kg, compared to the 1.75 kg weight and 17.9 mm thickness of the MagicBook X Pro 16.
The Core i5-13500H powers both machines, which combines 4 performance cores with eight efficiency cores on a 35 W TDP. However, the MagicBook X Pro 14 can boost the TDP to 40 W when needed, 5 W less than the MagicBook X Pro 16. Furthermore, the MagicBook X Pro series has a 60 Wh battery, its predecessor's set of I/O and a backlit keyboard. At launch, Honor offers the MagicBook X Pro 14 from CNY 4,499 (~US$646), with the MagicBook X Pro 16 starting at CNY 4,299 (~US$617). Both machines come with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, but there is a 1 TB option for a CNY 300 (~US$43) surcharge.
