HONOR MagicBook X 16 Review – Good, But Even Better for Some

+ Excellent display ; + Attractive design ; + Decent performance with expandable storage option (2 x SSD slots) ; + Light for its size ; + Comfortable keyboard with power button / fingerprint scanner combo ; + Good array of ports ; + Solid value...

Review: HONOR's MagicBook 14 (2021) is an improvement, but is it enough?


The budget HONOR MagicBook 14 is back for 2021 with 11th Gen Intel Core CPUs and a brighter, more colorful display. I've been using it for the last couple of weeks to see how well the refresh works out and whether or not it's worth its modest price.

Strong performance and battery life ; Camera "shutter" and fingerprint reader ; Keyboard and touchpad are comfy ; Fast, upgradeable M.2 SSD ; Solid aluminum chassis

No Thunderbolt or SD reader ; Keyboard camera offers a bad angle ; Soldered RAM

Bottom line: Port selection is dated, and the camera's angle is unpleasant, but the MagicBook 14 offers reliable performance, long battery life, and a comfortable keyboard and touchpad. It's a well-built laptop that costs less than $1,000, making it...

HONOR MagicBook 14 review (2020) | Pocketnow


The 2020 HONOR MagicBook 14, now with the upgraded AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor, is a great choice and bang for the buck. Read our review!

Great design, premium materials; ; Really nice display; ; Great performance; ; Excellent battery life; ; Speakers are loud; ; Integration with HUAWEI smartphones via HUAWEI Share.

Not recommended for graphics-intense operations; ; Pop-up webcam’s angle is something you’ll have to get used to; ; A tad heavy at 1.4kg; ; I/O could be better; ; If you’re in the U.S. you’ll likely need to import it, which will add to the price.

The HONOR MagicBook 14 was already a great choice when it ran the older version of the processor. Now, with the upgraded 4500U chip, the 2020 model not only outperforms other laptops in its class and price range, but it also manages, like an...

Honor MagicBook 14 review: Honor’s budget portable is an affordable MacBook rival


The Honor MagicBook 14 is a superbly made 14in laptop that crushes the competition when it comes to value for money

Solid battery life ; Well made and good looking ; Decent performance

Screen not colour accurate ; Popup webcam captures from an awkward angle

Honor is clearly singing the same tune as Huawei when it comes to laptop production. While the MagicBook 14 may not be very best in all departments, it's certainly good enough for most and undercuts the sweeping majority of its Windows and Mac rivals...

Snappy performance ; Excellent battery life ; Great design with small screen bezels ; Fingerprint sensor is a boon

Screen could be a little brighter
