Looks like a MacBook?

Xiaomi, a newcomer to the portable computer, has launched its initial notebook computers just over a year ago.

Currently, Xiaomi’s portable computer lineup goes “pro” with a brand new model sporting a quad-core Intel Coffee Lake processor, a full metal chassis, NVIDIA graphics, up to 16GB of RAM, and a fingerprint device.

The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro is conjointly pretty compact for a notebook with a 15.6-inch display, measuring 14.2″ x 9.6″ x 0.6″ and weighing about 4.3 pounds.

Xiaomi’s new laptop ought to be obtainable soon for a price range of $860 and up. It’ll formally be offered in China at launch, but it won’t take long for international resellers to ship the notebook to the America, Europe, and different regions for a small markup.



The notebook features a 1920 x 1080 pixel glossy display with slim bezels, that helps justify the laptop’s comparatively little size. It’s an island-style backlit keyboard with 1.5mm key travel, and an active report from The Verge indicates that the touchpad is astonishingly smart.

Other options embrace two USB Type-C ports, two USB 3.0 Type-A ports, an HDMI port, SD card reader, and 3.5mm headset jack. The Mi Notebook Pro features a 60Wh battery and support for quick charging: a thirty-five-minute charge ought to get you to about 50 % battery life.

Here are the models and prices:

Core i5-8250U with 8GB of RAM for $860
Core i7-8550U with 8GB of RAM $980
Core i7-8550U with 16GB of RAM for $1070
