Is an Honor laptop worth it?

In fact, Honor has not been in the laptop market for long. The Chinese manufacturer was previously known primarily for its smartphones until the first MagicBook came onto the market in spring 2020. After separating from Huawei at the end of 2020, Honor apparently not only wants to assert itself with its smartphones, but also wants to make a name for itself more and more with its notebooks.

In our test of the MagicBook 15, Honor’s second notebook, it already made a solid impression. You can’t go wrong with the MagicBook Pro either if you are looking for a notebook that can handle a wide variety of everyday applications, but also more demanding tasks.
