Honor MagicBook 14 and 15 with Ryzen 5500U go on pre-order in Russia with perks
Honor unveiled the MagicBook 14 and 15 with 11th gen Intel processors in May, the two laptops previously had Ryzen 3000 and Ryzen 4000 versions. Then back in July the company brought out Ryzen 5000 versions in China. Which brings us to today – the two laptops with the latest AMD APUs are now available in Russia too.
This brings hope that the 14” and 15” laptops will be available in Europe, though we didn’t see any other countries after scouring HiHonor.com. You’re not missing too much, the two are only available with the Ryzen 5500U, which has six Zen 2 cores (with multi-threading), making it similar to the Ryzen 4600U.
A quick overview of the laptops shows a 14” and 15.6” IPS LCD, both with 1080p resolution (16:9). The displays offer 300 nits of brightness, DC dimming and cover 100% of the sRGB color space. The chassis of the two are made out of aluminum and measure 15.9 mm/1.380 kg and 16.9 mm/1,540 kg. This is with 56 WHr batteries on both with 65W charging, which can hit 65% state of charge in an hour.
There are no memory options other than 8 GB of dual channel RAM on the smaller laptop and 16 GB on the larger one, both with 512 GB storage. These two are officially compatible with Windows 11, so you will be able to easily update the pre-installed Windows 10 Home. Honor’s multi-screen feature lets you run up to three apps from your Honor phone on the laptop.
Right now the MagicBook 14 and 15 are on pre-order. The smaller one goes for RUB 60,000 (€700), the larger one is RUB 70,000 (€815). During the pre-order period you will also receive a free Honor MagicWatch 2 (46 mm) (nominally worth €190) and Honor Earbuds 2 Lite (€70).
My only complaint with these non-conventional manufacturers, especially ones from China, is the "unupgradability" of their laptops.

It's the form factor-thin and light notebook that you are paying for
