Honor MagicBook 14 & 15 add 11th Gen Intel processors
(Pocket-lint) – Honor has revealed its MagicBook laptop, available in 14-inch and 15-inch sizes, will bring the latest 11th Gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors to the series.
Honor has now separated from Huawei – as first announced in November 2020 – functioning as an independent smartphone and technology company. That’s led to all-new products – such as the MagicBook Pro, announced at CES 2021 – with more anticipated in the future.
The Honor MagicBook 14 and MagicBook 15, however, aren’t brand new designs – it’s simply that these laptops’ innards have been brought up to date for 2021.
The pairing of 11th Gen Intel Core i processors means Intel Iris Xe graphics on board, too, helping to bring decent battery life – claimed at over 10 hours – and enabling more graphical intense appliations.
The designs include a Full HD (1920 x 1080) screen resolution with trim surrounding bezel, along with multiple ports including HDMI, USB-C and USB-A to cater for all current needs.
The aluminium body is cut in ‘Space Gray’ only, bringing a rather MacBook-esque look to proceedings. It’s a good looking Windows machine for a fair price, though. Both models are available to buy right now, with sales commencing in the UK (from £1199.90), Germany and France (from €849.90).
