2019 has been a very good year for pocket laptops with Windows, ranging from 7-inch to 8.9-inch. And now yet another brand is stepping into the game with the launch of th 8.9-inch WIndows 10 pocket laptop Magic-Ben MAG1 on October 10: https://www.geekbuying.com/item/Magic-Ben-MAG1-8-9–Pocket-Laptop
This is the first time I’ve heard of Magic-Ben MAG1, but based on its store listing, this new pocket laptop is powered by a Intel Core m3-8100Y processor, with options of either 8GB RAM with 256GB storage, or 16GB RAM with 512GB storage. Both DDR3 RAM and PCI-E SSD storage.
The 8.9-inch screen is a typical 10-point touchscreen, but with 2560 x 1600 resolution, which is still above average for a pocket laptop.
Some of the other main specs includes a USB 3.1 C port, a USB 3.0 port, a micro-HDMI port, a 3.5mm audio combo jack, and a microSD card slot with support for 128GB memory cards.
Magic-Ben MAG1 also has a backlit keyboard with fingerprint reader, a 7 hour rated 8600 mAh battery, weighs about 690 grams, and is 17.7mm thick with a typical all-metal body.
But unlike some of the bestselling pocket laptops it doesn’t appear to bend over 360 degrees so that it can be used in tablet mode or tent mode.
