Honor MagicBook Pro comes with Intel at a very reasonable price, it is an excellent product balanced with a lot of potential.
The honor has now become an independent entity that controls his fate, as the company has sold its smartphones tens of millions of units all over the world.
The Honor MagicBook Pro is different from last year’s model, with an AMD Ryzen processor being replaced by a 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor as the main driver, and the Honor MagicBook Pro is aimed at creative professionals looking for a capable mobile workstation.
But if you want a device that has better performance than the MagicBook Pro that carries the Intel version), you can look at the MagicBook Pro which carries an AMD version, which is more powerful, as it is considered in most tasks and comes at a price of 850 pounds.
You can also catch a glimpse of the Apple MacBook Pro, with its silicon M1 and the bewildering prospects that make it one of the fastest mainstream laptops ever that will make most nerds drool.
- Excellent prices
- Great build quality
- good performance
- Speakers caught
- There is no Thunderbolt 3
- Pop-up camera
- There is no numeric keypad
- The battery capacity is smaller
The Honor MagicBook Pro is now on the market for £ 749 in the UK with the Honor Magic Mouse and the Honor MagicWatch 2 46mm, a package worth under £ 160.
Honor MagicBook Pro is not officially available in the US, but you can get it from Chinese online retailers who will ship it to any region of your choice.

Sleek Design , Great Speakers
Honor MagicBook Pro comes in gray only and has a very similar design to Huawei MateBook 14.
It is a very well designed metal case and will also be suitable for a more expensive device, with the screen edges at the top
and the sides very narrow (4.9 mm), the Honor MagicBook Pro is not very bulky despite the 16.1 inch screen.
Honor MagicBook Pro has 16.1 inch (16: 9) IPS display with 1080p resolution, this matte panel delivers good picture and even bright contents don’t look grainy.
Honor sets brightness at 300 nits and contrast ratio of 1000: 1, and upon testing we scored over 300 nits across all nine measurement points and up to about 340 nits in the center of the screen.
The body of the device has two upper speakers on either side of the keyboard, so the sound is directed directly at the user.
The speakers are better compared to the MagicBook 15, but they lack bass and tend to be distorted at higher volume levels.
Fortunately, the manufacturer has also included Nahimic audio software with various presets and a virtual surround sound mode.
In terms of ports, you will only get 3 fast USB ports, including a Type-C connector (3.2 Gen.1, 5 Gbps) and is also use for charging or you can use it to connect an external display via DisplayPort-Alt mode.
You will also get a full-size HDMI output and three USB Type-A ports (3.2 Gen.1, 5Gbps), one on the left and two on the right side of the chassis.
The highlight here on the Honor MagicBook Pro is the replacement of the 6-core AMD Ryzen processor with a quad-core Intel Core processor and an Nvidia Geforce MX350 discrete GPU.
The reason for this change should be compelling as, in theory, replacing an AMD Ryzen 6-core processor with an Intel Core processor increases the material bill, resulting in worse overall performance and reduced battery life. But there is more to it.
Fortunately, the Core i5-10210U CPU is built on a 14nm manufacturing process (compared to 7nm from AMD), plus there are two fewer than the Ryzen 5 4600H and a 6MB cache, nearly half of its competition.
Honor MagicBook Pro also offers the MX350 GPU with dedicated 2GB GDDR5 memory, cementing its position as a portable video editing laptop at an affordable price.
Unfortunately, there is no Wi-Fi 6 here. The battery is 56Wh, which is nearly half the capacity of an Apple or LG Gram 17.
Sufficiently efficient performance
As for the Honor MagicBook Pro’s performance, to be honest this AMD laptop is much faster than Intel: 50% of the extra cores give it an unfair advantage even if Intel manages to hold its own in the single-threaded tests.
GPU-intensive benchmarks are also included; Geekbench shows Compute, Passmark and 3DMark the value of having a separate GPU.
And in terms of battery life, it’s to be expected, definitely shorter than the AMD variant ego but only. In 416 minutes (compared to 421 minutes for the Ryzen version, overall that’s enough.)
Upon tests, fans began to work under load during the densest parts of our benchmarks until it was a bit noisy,
and we also found that thanks to six temperature sensors and a cooling fan motor at higher spin rates, they help cool the laptop more effectively.
The performance of the keyboard, the screen, and the webcam are all good, in more detail.
Finally, note that the laptop comes with a one-year warranty and runs Windows 10 Home.
Honor has successfully switched the AMD processor to the Intel CPU, along with the addition of the Nvidia Geforce MX350 GPU and brought the price down to under £ 750.
But having a webcam is a bad idea, as there is no Thunderbolt 3 port and a card reader, plus there is a numeric keypad.
Honor MagicBook Pro is distinguish by the presence of impressive quality emerging speakers with a solid build quality in addition to free gifts and a fingerprint sensor.
But if Honor wants to take MagicBook Pro to the next level, it needs to upgrade its capabilities such as providing a better CPU and GPU, and 32GB of RAM, for example.
