ByAdan Flannigan 2019-07-26 752

In April last year, Honor released its first notebook computer product, the Honor Magicbook. July 23, Honor held a press conference in Xi'an, bringing a variety of new products, including the new Honor MagicBook Pro.

Huawei Honor MagicBook Pro 

New appearance and design

Compared to the previous Honor MagicBook, the Honor MagicBook Pro has made a lot of changes in the design. What is more obvious is that it moves the HONOR mark from the upper right corner of the A side to the left side of the center. At the same time, its angular transition is more distinct and appears to be "stable".


Huawei Honor MagicBook Pro appearance and design 

Slim bezel - up to 4.9mm

The biggest highlight of the Huawei Honor MagicBook Pro is its B-face, which is mainly reflected in the border width and screen size. Different from many products, Honor MagicBook Pro achieves a very narrow (4.9mm) on the top, left and right sides, and narrows the width of the lower border as much as possible (11.6mm. At present, there are few notebook products that can be close to the "full screen". The intuitive visual effect after the bright screen is very good.

Large screen - 16.1 inch

After the width of the frame has been greatly narrowed, it has been common practice to maintain the original screen size and reduce the size of the body to pursue better portability. The MagicBook Pro, on the other hand, was built with a 16.1-inch screen based on a 15.6-inch body. At the press conference, its viewing area increased by about 6.6% compared to the traditional 15.6-inch model.

Eye protection mode - anti-glare

In addition to the special size, this Honor also anti-glare treatment of its screen. Simply put, its display screen is provided with a screen film made of tiny coarse particles, which can make the light diffuse and reflect the anti-glare effect. At the same time, it also supports eye protection mode, which can effectively filter out 30% of blue light.

Light weigh - 1.7 kg

Of course, it still benefits from the narrow bezel design. Although the screen size of the MagicBook Pro is relatively larger, the portability is not bad. According to the data given by the   conference, the body measurements are 369 x 234 x 16.9mm, and the weight is 1.7kg. The volume is equivalent to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, but slightly lighter.

Multi-interface - meets daily demands

In terms of external expansion capability, the right side of the fuselage provides two USB 3.0 interfaces and a headphone/microphone combo interface; the left side provides a Type-C full-featured interface, an HDMI interface, and a USB 3.0 interface, which is rich in interfaces in a thin and light version. There is no problem in meeting the needs of daily use.

Dolby Atmos - enjoy stereo

The C face of the MagicBook Pro continues the overall compact design, and the keyboard area and trackpad still occupy most of the area. In addition, Honor made a black speaker grille on the left and right sides of its keyboard area. Since it did not choose to open the hole directly on the C side, it still looks obvious.


This layout also allows it to deliver good stereo sound even when it is placed outside. It is worth mentioning that it is also equipped with Dolby Atmos, you can get a very good listening experience.

Fingerprint/power two-in-one button

The MagicBook Pro adopts a fingerprint/power two-in-one button design. During the boot process, it can directly enter the system interface, which is more convenient than the traditional fingerprint unlocking scheme. At the same time, because it is cleverly designed in the grille of the speaker, it is also more conducive to maintaining the integrity of the C-face.


Hidden camera - interesting and ingenious design

At present, if you want to make the four borders of the screen as narrow as possible, in addition to directly canceling the camera, another better solution is to use a hidden design.


Honor MagicBook Pro sets the camera in the keyboard area, you can choose to turn the camera on or off according to your own needs. Of course, in addition to being able to better achieve multiple narrow borders, it can also solve the problem of privacy leakage.


As for the keybord, it is hard to make a perfect using experience in the ultrabook. But from the actual experience, the performance of MagicBook Pro is quite satisfactory. Its button keystroke belongs to the mainstream level of light and thin, and the feedback force is moderately adjusted, which can bring a good tapping experience.

Excellent performance - 8th intel core and NAIVIA MX250

However, this situation has changed a lot in MagicBook Pro. The front mentioned that the MagicBook Pro has good portability, and its performance has not fallen. The regular version is powered by the Intel Core i5-8265U processor, and the high-end version comes with an Intel Core i5-8265U processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD solid state drive and NVIDIAMX250 discrete graphics.


The I5-8265U version, so the following is the version configured as I5. The Intel Core i5-8265U is part of the eighth-generation Whiskey Lake architecture. It uses a four-core eight-thread design and the TDP power consumption is still 15W. The main frequency is 1.8GHz.


The NVIDIA MX250 is a replacement for the MX150, and is still a standard-grade discrete graphics card for thin and light.

Performance test in 3DMark 11

Using 3DMark 11 to test its performance, from the results, its P file score of 4820 points, the official said that the increase range is between 5% and 10%, normal work and entertainment tasks (such as playing League of Legends) It is completely enough.

Performance test in ASSSD software

In the SSD section, we chose the ASSSD software that is commonly used for testing. From the results, the MagicBookPro SSD model is Samsung MZVLB512HAJQ-00000 (PM871), the continuous reading speed is 2415.72MB / s, the continuous writing speed is 1802.73MB / s, the overall score is 4355, the performance is very good.


From the hardware configuration point of view, the specifications of MagicBook Pro belong to the top level in the mainstream. However, it is obviously not an easy task to suppress the heat from the Intel Core i5-8265U + NVIDIA MX250.

Cooling capacity - gaming laptop level

Its heat-dissipating window is located at the back of the fuselage (below the screen), and it is equipped with a "Shark Fin Double Fan 2.0" version. Using a game-level fan motor, with a two-core design and sine wave. Drive technology that enables game-level cooling.

Magic-link 2.0 magic transfer

File transfer between mobile phones and laptops is a scene that we often encounter in our daily work life. In the case of a network, this is not a difficult task. However, if you are on a business trip or unable to connect to the Internet, it may not be so easy. There are not many ways to transfer files quickly.


Huawei Honor MagicBook Pro magic-link 


In order to solve this problem, MagicBook Pro uses Magic-link 2.0 magic transfer function. It supports the transfer of pictures, videos, Microsoft office documents, and the PC screen recording back to the phone, while also supporting clipboard sharing.


After the device connection is completed, selecting the image to be transferred to Honor MagicBook Pro in the album, just touch the phone with the HONOR Magic-link 2.0 icon on the notebook C side to start the transfer process. From the time we recorded with the stopwatch, from the beginning to the end, it took only 30.27 seconds to transfer 800MB images, which is very fast.


The Magic-link 2.0 Magic Interchange feature has the advantage of being able to quickly transfer multiple files, while the entire process is simple from connection to trigger transfer. Of course, the premise is that you need to have a Honor that supports NFC or a Huawei mobile phone to enjoy the convenience it brings.

Verdict

The advantage of the MagicBook Pro is that it has excellent border width control, and it is exactly the same. You can get a better visual experience on the 15.6-inch body, which is rare in other similar products.


Honor MagicBook Pro is a thin and light notebook with bold innovation and cutting-edge exploration. This innovative feature will revolutionize the PC industry and lead the era of standard entry into the full screen. In addition, MagicBookPro has achieved a truly comprehensive screen while ensuring high cost performance. For the pollen that is used to the same quality and pursuit of quality life, this notebook is worth having.
