Months into the new ‘stay at home’ lifestyle, a laptop has become the single most important gadget for all of us. As such the notebook market is seeing an unprecedented surge in demand. So to meet this, brands are coming up with fresh new models. Take the titular HONOR laptop for instance.
HONOR MagicBook 15 happens to be an impressive piece of technology. The global brand has entered the Indian laptop space at the perfect time. And in a very short span, HONOR MagicBook 15 has become India’s bestselling laptop under INR 50K. The demand was evident when people expressed their love by making it the most ‘wish-listed’ product ever on Flipkart. It was thus no surprise that the MagicBook 15 sold out within just 120 seconds in the first sale! You see, it currently stands at an overall rating of 4.8 stars on the e-commerce website!
But, before we witness its magic, let’s quickly address the trouble that young professionals and students go through while buying a new laptop. We understand it’s neither an easy nor an impulsive task. Rather, it takes a good amount of time and technical research to hunt through the barrage of options and find the one that fits the bill.
Still and all, more often what young Indian consumers demand is a machine that’s powerful and portable. It has to be speedy inside and stylish outside. Doesn’t it?
Well, in that case, HONOR MagicBook 15 is the shiz! It is both beauty and the beast. Making the package even more interesting are the India-first innovations it brings on board for a bargain price.
Under the INR 50K segment, HONOR MagicBook 15 is India’s first laptop with three breakthrough innovations. These include a discreetly hidden pop-up Webcam, that serves as a unique privacy safeguard for users and facilitates a full-view display. It’s the first to include a secure 2-in-1 fingerprint power button, for secured and password-free login, and it also includes super convenient and super-fast 65W Type-C Multi-device fast charger, capable of charging the laptop by 53% in just 30 minutes.
While these three breakthrough innovations alone make HONOR MagicBook 15 stand out, there is a lot more to appreciate about this slick Notebook. Let’s take a look at everything it brings to your lap.
HONOR MagicBook 15 – The Best laptop under Rs. 50,000
HONOR has designed this laptop for young students and professionals, but, as you would see from the upcoming reasons, that it should interest anyone eyeing for a good, dependable Notebook.
Productive Powerhouse, Superfast charging
HONOR MagicBook 15 has Windows 10 Home edition laid on top of incredible specs. Under the hood, it helms the mighty AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor with Radeon Vega 8 graphics. This is further equipped with 8GB DDR4 Dual Channel RAM and 256GB PCle NVMe SSD storage. The PCIe, for the uninitiated, is the latest and fastest SSD solution. It is technologically superior and renders effective gain in transfer speeds (5x accelerated Read Speed which means 80% faster copying of files, 30% snappier loading of PPTs and 29% quicker file decompression)
In other words, all these translate to a super seamless workflow. You’ll be breezing through multi-tasks and tabs without breaking a sweat. Time thus saved can be well spent elsewhere.
HONOR MagicBook 15’s potent performance is aided by competent cooling from dual fans at the core. HONOR calls it the Sharkfin 2.0 design, which just like the name keeps the system cool and ensures that performance doesn’t throttle even under demanding loads.
Such raw performance is backed by 6.5-7 hours of battery endurance. This coupled with the 65W Type-C fast charger throws battery anxiety of any sort out of the window. The supplied adapter tops up 53% of the juice in just 30 minutes and a full charge can eke 6.3 hours of video playback, 6.6 hours of office use, or 6.2 hours of web browsing. Also, the charger being just 160 grams, makes it a comfortable companion to all road warriors out there in a post-pandemic world.
HONOR MagicBook 15 comes with Microsoft Windows 10 Home pre-installed and HONOR bundles a free 1 month trial of the Microsoft 365 personal subscription which should make this notebook further appealing to productivity-oriented users.
Handy and Handsome
HONOR MagicBook 15 comes in a mystic silver color with azure blue chamfer, which evokes a sophisticated and soothing appeal. As always, HONOR pays meticulous attention to design details. A crystalline diamond CNC machine is used to create this beveled edge with a blue radiance. The aluminum chassis weighs just 1.53 grams and is a mere 16.9 mm thick, thus making this Notebook extremely portable.
Flip the lid open, and you’re welcomed by a stunning 15.6-inch FHD IPS display with extremely slender 5.3 mm side and top bezels. It endows a 16:9 aspect ratio and an 87% screen-to-body ratio. The screen is fully laminated to reduce reflectivity and reproduces well-calibrated colors with a wide dynamic range, resulting in an awesome multimedia experience.
HONOR has given due attention to the visual experience. This is apparent in the way the hinge leans back up to 180°, the 178° viewing angles with the anti-glare and glossy display, or even how the TUV Certified Eye Comfort Mode protects your sight against blue lights from the screen.
Those lean, uniform bezels make the display immersive, but mandate an innovative approach towards webcam. HONOR artfully integrates an innovative pop-up camera that lies concealed under its full-size keyboard and magically surfaces right when you need it.
You don’t have to compromise on the connectivity front either, as there is a versatile port array on the periphery. There is a port for almost every purpose including USB 2.0, USB 3.0, Type C, HDMI, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
Innovative and Intelligent
Even though the highlights mentioned above are more than what you could ask for from a decent laptop, HONOR spruces up things with few magic ingredients of its own.
Beginning with the boot, you’d encounter the brilliance of HONOR engineering. The power button of HONOR MagicBook 15 doubles as a Fingerprint reader. So, when you tap the power key to fire up the PC, the machine caches your fingerprint and auto-logins, which is smart as well as secure. You no more need to worry about remembering complicated passwords or leaking them to someone accidentally.
Speaking of security, the Pop-up Webcam which when not in use, stays head-down as a keyboard key. This prevents any kind of unwarranted window to your private life. That’s tiny yet tremendous care for user’s privacy.
In our day to day lives, beyond laptops, our phones are one of the most used and important forms of gadgetry. So, HONOR being an ecosystem builder has developed the MagicLink 2.0, which acts as a bridge of convenience between NFC-enabled HONOR or Huawei phones running EMUI 10 and MagicBook 15 laptop.
MagicLink 2.0 creates a closely-knit and collaborative environment wherein you get to access your HONOR or Huawei phone screen and files directly on your MagicBook 15 — all in a matter of instant clicks. This drastically simplifies workflow. We can initiate a task on our phone and seamlessly switch to our HONOR MagicBook 15 should the situation demand it, and just pick where we left off.
A Value Deal Unlike Any Other
HONOR has done a commendable job in conjuring up the HONOR MagicBook 15. Everything from its captivating full view display, classy design, and all-day battery to an un-throttled long-lasting performance screams premium. While some cutting edge exclusives like the secure 2-in-1 fingerprint power button, innovative pop-up webcam, and convenient 65W fast charging are 3 of India’s first breakthrough innovations under INR 50K, making it stand in a league of its own.
This is a slick machine perfectly suitable for both work and play. All in all, HONOR MagicBook 15 surpasses expectations and is perhaps the best laptop under 50k.
