After Xiaomi and its Mi NoteBook, Honor launches its MagicBook!

  • Android and competition
  • Mac

honor iconIf the name of Honor is not familiar to you, know that it is a subsidiary of Huawei, a large Chinese firm.

Like Xiaomi and its Mi Notebook Pro, Honor decides to enter the ultra-book market, and the latter also brings to mind the Apple MacBook.

Although both laptop imitate the design of MacBook, we can still note some differences between the two products.
Starting with its 2 speakers present on the edges of the keyboard, as well as the fingerprint reader present on the Power button.

The name "MagicBook"placed in the middle of the lower edge of the screen also reminds Apple MacBooks.

What to choose between this MagicBook and the Mi NoteBook Pro?

This Honor laptop has:

  • One USB-C port
  • One USB 2.0 port
  • One USB 3.0 port
  • One HDMI port
  • One Jack port (3.5mm)
  • One SD Card port

Xiaomi's Laptop carries:

  • One SD card port
  • 2 USB-C ports
  • 2 USB 3.0 ports
  • One HDMI port
  • One Jack port (3.5mm)

They really have the same price:

  • 650 in their versions (i5 / 8GB)
  • 750 in their versions (i7 / 8GB)

It is not possible to add an SSD on the MagicBook unlike the Mi Notebook Pro.

These 2 computers have the same CPU and GPU and a fingerprint reader.

I think your choice will be mainly on the utility you can have for ports and screen size, because it is true that this MagicBook takes less port and a notch smaller than its competitor !

Or on the technical characteristics, because the MagicBook does not exist in version 16 GB of RAM, only in 8 GB which can be limited for games or some software.

magicbook profileOn the other hand I do not recommend this computer to people who are not a minimum familiar with computers because it is true that it can be scary to see a Chinese Windows and a QWERTY keyboard!

And even for the warranty, I don't think it's easy to join them, so you can see what you're getting into!

This PC is ideal for a student or one professional who needs a powerful and light machine!
If you're looking for a ready-to-use PC right now, it's best to go your way.

In any case, this Honor computer is unfortunately not yet available in France …
