Huawei Honor MagicBook Debuts: 14 inch Ultrabook and Metallic MacBook Rival

By James A.

Huawei’s Honor sub brand came through this week, by unveiling the Honor MagicBook device. This one is an ultrabook, that comes with a 14 inch screen and an 8th gen Intel Core processor. It’s actually pretty compact at 1.47 kilograms and 15.8 mm in thickness.

Borrowing design cues from the MacBook Air and packing an aluminum body, the device is an affordable device that fits a 14 inch panel on a body made for a 13 incher. That screen is an IPS with Full HD resolution and 45% coverage of the NTSC color space. It also offers 800:1 contrast and 250 nits of brightness.

Honor MagicBook relies on an 8th gen Intel processor, either the Core i5-8250u or the Core i7-8550u, whichever you may pick. There’s 8 GB of RAM here, 256 GB of SSD SATA storage and an NVIDIA MX150 dedicated GPU, with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory.

 

The CPU and GPU both benefit from a singular heat pipe, which sucks the cool air from vents and blows out the hot air. This Honor machine promises up to 12 hours of usage, courtesy of a 57.4 Wh battery, which goes from zero to 70% in just an hour. As far as connectivity is concerned, we get USB Type-C for charging, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, as well as HDMI and audio jack.

Huawei Honor MagicBook uses 4 speakers with Dolby Atmos tech and dual microphones. There’s a fingerprint scanner here, placed to the side of the keyboard and the OS is most likely Windows 10. The starting price is $800 for the Core i5 model and $910 for the Core i7 one.

By James A.

Lenovo China has introduced two new laptops on the Chinese market, the Lenovo Air 2018 and Lenovo 7000 being sold exclusively on JD.com. These are pretty solid devices, packing Intel 8th gen processors and elegant bodies. Let’s see what the prices are.

Lenovo Air 2018 comes with an all metal body approach and it measures 16.8 mm in thickness. It weighs just 1.95 kilograms and packs a 15.6 inch display with Full HD resolution and tri bezel less design. It’s no Huawei MateBook X Pro, but it does have an impressive 82.7% screen to body ratio. Inside we find an 8th gen Intel processor and the NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU.

Core i7 and Core i5 versions are on the table, plus 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage. A fingerprint scanner is included, plus Harman Kardon acoustics and a 45 Whr battery with support for fast charge. An USB Type-C port is available here, but only for data transfer. There are two USB 3.0 ports here, an HDMI port and a 3.5 mm audio jack.

Available in black, silver or gold, product is priced at $923 in the Core i5 version and $1114 in the Core i7 one.

Lenovo 7000 gets the same metal body and the same tri bezel approach, this time on a 14 inch Full HD diagonal and an 80.8% screen to body ratio. The screen can be laid flat just like the Lenovo Air 2018. The weight is 1.93 kilograms and the thickness is 19.3 mm. This time we get a 128 GB SSD and a 2 TB HDD, unlike the model above, that only has SSD.

Samsung Launches Notebook 5 and Notebook 3 Series Compact Laptops

By Radu Iorga

Samsung debuted a bunch of new laptops on April 1st and that’s certainly no joke. These are compact laptops, also light and slim and they’re part of the Samsung Notebook 5 and Samsung Notebook 3 series. Let’s see what’s special about them.

Samsung Notebook 5 is probably the most appealing with a 15.6 inch 1080p screen and metal body. The other two are Samsung Notebook 3 units, one with a 14 inch screen and the other with a 15.6 inch screen. The hardware features are pretty much the same, with your choice of Intel 7th gen or 8th gen CPUs, while the higher end units also include NVIDIA graphics.

These laptops have full QWERTY keyboards, with numeric pads and special ergonomic key caps, plus a pretty wide and generous trackpad. The display has anti glare protection and Samsung Color Engine for the sake of ideal color tuning. Samsung Notebook 3 and Notebook 5 will be available in Korea starting with April and then it will debut in China and Brazil in Q2.

 

All these devices come with SSD storage, but the 15.6 inch Notebook 5 has a combo of SSD and HDD. That one weighs 1.97 kilograms, has Full HD resolution and the 13 inch Notebook 4 has just HD resolution. All these devices have 43 Wh batteries, VGA front facing cameras and there’s an option of NVIDIA MX150 GDDR5 graphics card. Prices and specs vary depending on the market and colors are Misty Gray, Night Charcoal, Deep Peach and Pure White.

Weirdly there’s no info about RAM, other than the fact it’s DDR4. CPUs are of the quad core (Intel Generation 8) variety and there’s also dual core (Intel Generation 7) version.

By Radu Iorga

Lenovo couldn’t miss MWC 2018, so they’re here, debuting two new convertibles with Windows 10. I’m talking about the Lenovo Yoga 730 and Lenovo Flex 14, both detailed after the break. There are several different diagonal versions.

For example, the Lenovo Yoga comes in 13 inch and 15 inch flavours, while the Flex 14 is available as a 14 inch model. We start off with Lenovo Yoga 730, that packs a 13.3 inch 4K or Full HD display and arrives in April priced at $879.99. It’ll be available in Copper, Iron Gray and Platinum Silver. Inside we find the latest generation (8th gen) Intel Core i7 processor and there’s also Amazon Alexa on board, even though we have Windows 10 and Cortana.

On the graphics side, there’s Intel HD 620/UHD 620, up to 16 GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 512 GB of PCIe SSD storage. The battery life is supposed to be 11 hours on the Full HD model and 11.5 hours on the UHD one. It all weighs 2.46 lbs and comes with JBL speakers and Dolby Atmos headphones. There are two USB Type-C Thunderbolt ports here and an USB 3.0 with always on charging. A fingerprint scanner rounds up the list.

Next up is the Lenovo Yoga 730, with a 15.6 inch screen that goes up to 4K, but there’s also a Full HD version. This unit is priced at $899.99 and also comes in April 2018. It has an NVIDIA GTX1050 graphics card, which is actually not bad at all, at this price. Up to 8 GB of RAM are here, plus 8 GB of DIMM. Storage goes to 1 TB of SSD and there’s 11 hours of battery life on the FHD model and 9 hours on the 4K one.

 

It weighs 4.16 lbs and packs JBL speakers and Dolby Atmos headphones. Ports are of the USB 3.0 variety and USB-C, too. Amazon Alexa, Windows 10 and fingerprint sreader are included.

Lenovo Flex 14 comes in April at $599.99, being a more affordable proposition. It’s a Windows 10 convertible with up to a Core i7 CPU, 14 inch Full HD screen and NVIDIA GeForce MX130 (up to). It has up to 16 GB of RAM, 512 GB SSD, Harman speakers and up to 10 hours of battery life. Connectivity is available as follows: USB Type-C, 2 USB 3.0 Type A and HDMI.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Teclast F7 Pro Notebook, UnBoxing And Initial Impressions

By Tim

Teclast has put out a very decent 14 inch tablet with good specs and at a budget price. The video we have tonight is from Chris over at TechTablets and covers his initial impressions of the device.

Now I am still going to recommend the Chuwi LapBook Air, only because it has 8 GB RAM, more on-board storage and a back-lit keyboard, but if price is a major concern this one can be had at a reasonable price and will perform equally well.

The basic specs are as follows:

  • Intel Celeron N3450 Apollo Lake CPU, Quad Core
  • Windows 10 Home
  • 14 inch IPS FHD display
  • SSD Expansion slot
  • 6 GB RAM
  • 64 GB eMMC 5.1 on-board storage
  • Great keyboard and track pad
  • WIFI: 802.11 ac

As far as pricing goes, I do suggest shopping around although I understand that if you use coupon code: TECLASTS$200-$10 that you can get this device for about $219!

So without any further babbling on my part, here is the video. Make sure to subscribe to the TechTablets site if this stuff appeals to you!

Remember, the Chinese retailers change prices constantly, so make sure to be patient, wait for flash sales and check multiple sites.

Always check BangGood.com and Geekbuying.com in addition to the Gearbest site.

That is all for now,

Tim
