Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro Annouced Today: Here's the Essentials

The company wants to cater to the Chinese and Indian audience by bringing in a laptop that would openly compete Apple's own Macbook Pro.

The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro comes with the fingerprint sensor integrated on the touchpad.

The Mi Notebook Pro is a good-looking device with magnesium alloy chassis. Apart from that, the Mi Notebook Pro comes 2,400MHz dual channel RAM. Unlike the Mi Notebook, the Pro variant has a bigger 15.6-inch screen. In fact the Mi Notebook Pro starts at only $850 which is less than half of what Apple is offering. Specifically, the top end ultrabook packs an Intel Core i7 Coffee Lake quad core processor with cores clocked at 4.0GHz.

The keyboard can be backlit and looks very similar to the MacBook Pro's configuration when it comes to key shape, design choice, and other factors.

Trackpad also features a fingerprint scanner, thus allowing authentication for Windows Hello. The NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU can handle a bit of casual gaming on the side, but won't please any hardcore gamer out there. "The display is 15.6" with a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Although overall smaller than the iPhone 7 Plus, the Mi Note 3 comes with a generous 3500mAh battery, not to mention 6 whopping gigs of RAM and up to 128GB internal storage. To offer immersive audio experience, Xiaomi has included Harman Infinity custom-built speakers which is Dolby Atmos certified. In addition to this, the Mi Notebook Pro also features a 3-in-1 SD card slot, two USB Type-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a full-sized HDMI port, and two USB Type-A ports (USB 3.0 and USB 2.0). The device is about 1.95 kgs weight. It measures 360.7 x 243.6 x 15.9 mm. The same presumably holds true for the model with the current-generation Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM, with this particular hardware still putting the Mi Notebook Pro on par with the majority of Microsoft's Surface lineup. A Core i7/16GB RAM configuration will set you back the rough equivalent of $1,075 (6999 yuan), but it's probably wise not to expect USA availability anytime soon.
