Huawei’s New Honor MagicBook Is A MacBook RipOff

The new Honor MagicBook has taken a leaf out of Apple’s MacBook designs.


Nope, that is not a laptop from Apple, but from this angle, it really does look like one. That is the Honor MagicBook, the latest from Huawei.

Along with the Honor 10 smartphone, the Huawei sub-brand also launched a light-weight laptop in China. It is available in three colours – Nebula Violet, Stay Grey and Glacier Silver and began pre-orders this week. The laptops will go sale starting April 23.

The Honor MagicBook has a price tag of CNY 5,699 (about $905) and CNY 4,999 (about $795) so its expected to come with decent specs.

Powered with either an 8th generation Intel Core i7 or i5, it has an 8GB RAM and 256GB SSD. It sports a 14-inch full-HD display and carries 2GB Nvidia GeForce MX150. The bezels only measure 5.2mm and a screen-to-body ration of 81 percent.

Something to be interested about too is its battery life. The MagicBook comes with a gigantic 57.4Wh battery which would provide around 12 hours of usage. The company boasts that a one hour charge can give you 0% to 70%.

The entire body of the laptop is made of aluminium and weights 1.47kg. What it has that the MacBook Air or the MacBook pro is the built-in fingerprint sensor.

As always, there is no news on whether this will eventually be released overseas. If it does, would you buy one?
