When HONOR released the MagicBook back in April earlier this year, I was shocked by the value it offers. For its price, it struck a lot of the right chords - making it one of the laptops that I personally recommend. Unfortunately, the lack of availability plagued it. Then came the MagicBook 14 came around but it's technically a refresh of the original MagicBook but with an insane price hike.
I have to say - we reviewed a lot of laptops, particularly in this year alone. But, this is the most enjoyable big laptop I've reviewed so far. Introducing, the ASUS ProArt StudioBook Pro 17. Yes, there are two "pro"s in the name, but bear with us here because even I get confused by the lengthy name.
The ASUS VivoBook series is split into a few different sub-series. The VivoBook S-series is more premium, and the A-series is definitely more affordable. Today, we have one with us - and we're going to put it to the test.
Last year, we have the ASUS ZenBook Duo. It has a secondary strip of display that is called the ScreenPad Plus, and it brought an entirely new design as it makes use of the extra space on the laptop - but it has some issues. And today, we have the ROG Zephyrus Duo. It's a next-generation upgrade of that design but branded within the Zephyrus lineup instead. With good reason, actually.
Now, we reviewed a lot of laptops in the past, particularly ultrabooks, and premium thin & light laptops. For me, this kind of laptop is fantastic as it complements my usual super-powerful desktop.
The ASUS ROG Zephyrus G14. This is a highly-anticipated laptop and rightfully so - because it's using the latest AMD Ryzen mobile CPU. But that's not the only key highlight feature of the Zephyrus G14.
I don't know what I'm going to call this. Is this a hands-on review or is it a full review? Either way, this is the new HONOR MagicBook 14. And since the company just released the HONOR MagicBook a while back, what's new and what's the difference when comparing both side by side?
A few weeks ago, we published the review of the ASUS VivoBook S14 M433. That was an AMD-based laptop, which we liked a lot because of the performance while having a pretty good price tag. And now we have the ASUS VivoBook S15 S533.
This year, Dell made a few changes to the new XPS lineup of premium thin and light laptops. It's still using a pretty traditionally-XPS design alongside the materials used.
