The Honor MagicBook AMD touchscreen version uses a full metal body, the surface of which is finely polished, and the four corners are also passivated. With a maximum thickness of only 15.8 mm, the model is light and simple. It is also equipped with a 14-inch touchscreen that supports 10-point touch and various touch gestures.
Due to the addition of the touchscreen, the weight has increased from 1.45 kg to 1.57 kg. Thus, this amazing feature doesn’t affect its portability much.
In terms of specifications, the most intuitive difference between the Honor MagicBook AMD Ruilong and the Intel versions is that one uses the AMD Ruilong 5 2500U mobile APU, while the other uses the eighth-generation Intel Core i5-8250U mobile processor + MX150 2GB configuration.
The rest of the features remain unchanged. Thus, the Honor MagicBook is packed with an 8GB DDR4-2400 dual-channel memory, a 256GB PCI-E solid state drive, a Full HD IPS screen, and a 57.4Wh large capacity battery.

It should be noted that the fingerprint unlock function is added to the power button of the Intel version, and the next key is turned on directly to the system desktop in the shutdown state. The Honor MagicBook Ruilong version uses the traditional power-on button. Once the user presses it to boot, he still needs to manually enter the password to enter the system.
