Xiaomi's Redmi sub-brand unveiled a bunch of new devices yesterday. Most  notable of the lot were the Redmi K20 and K20 Pro "flagship killers", but the company also released a laptop, the first laptop to carry the Redmi logo, in fact.

The RedmiBook 14 features a 14-inch FHD IPS display with an 81.2% screen-to-body ratio. The laptop comes in multiple configurations that will see memory and storage rise from 4 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD, to 8 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD.

There are two CPU options: A Core i7-8565U or a Core i5-8265U. An NVIDIA GeForce MX250 is standard across the lineup. Users of the RedmiBook 14 won't be running any AAA games at 4K 60 FPS, but will not be short on processing power either. For connectivity, there are two USB 2.0 ports, a USB 3.0 port, a HDMI port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

There's a 46 Wh battery that's said to deliver up to 10 hours of battery life on a full charge. The RedmiBook 14 weighs in at 1.5 kg and is under 18mm thick. It's not quite as light or slim as the Xiaomi Notebook Air or 13.3-inch MacBook Air but it's also bigger than the both of them, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Prices start at US$580 for the Core i5 model with a 256 GB SSD. Going up to 512 GB with the same Core i5 will see that price jacked up to US$650. The Core i7 model with a 512 GB SSD will set buyers back about US$720. 

All of these figures are converted from Chinese Yuan, as the RedmiBook 14 is only confirmed to be available in China for now. It may make its way to India and Europe in the near future. Fingers crossed.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
