Unboxing and first impressions of the Intel-based Honor MagicBook Pro

At IFA 2020, Honor introduced the MagicBook Pro, a 16-inch laptop powered by a Ryzen 5 4600H processor, as opposed to the U-series processors found in its non-Pro MagicBooks. Now, the company has introduced an Intel variant of the MagicBook Pro, which actually released in China even before the AMD version was introduced.

What's interesting about the Intel-powered MagicBook Pro is that instead of using an H-series processor like the AMD variant did, it actually has a Core i5-10210U, meaning it only has a 15W TDP instead of 45W. However, we now get a dedicated GPU in the form of the GeForce MX350 from Nvidia, while the AMD variant came with only the built-in graphics on the Ryzen processor.

Aside from the processor change, the rest of the laptop is nearly identical. There's a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, 16GB of dual-channel RAM, and a 56Wh battery. However, that battery is rated for an extra half-hour compared to the AMD version, for a total of 11.5 hours of battery life. The display is 16.1 inches diagonally and it has Full HD resolution in a 16:9 aspect ratio. There's no space for a camera above the display, so it's in the keyboard instead, as we've seen with other MagicBooks.

While a full review is coming soon, you can check out our first impressions of the new MagicBook Pro in the video below.
