The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2019) is now official, starting at US$536
Those who missed the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air so far might get lucky with its successor, although it is only available in China for now. This successor is simply known as the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2019) and weighs just 2.4 pounds, and the starting price is not far from the US$500 price tag carried by the original Mi Notebook Air.
Just as expected, the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2019) was officially unveiled in China on March 26. These are the prices of the models available — converted to USD — and their highlights:
The list of common specs and features includes a metal body, Harman Kardon audio with DTS surround, a 12.5-inch full HD display with very thin bezels (0.22 inches), as well as a battery of undisclosed capacity that can get up to 50 percent in just 35 minutes.
These being said, remains to see if (and when, if the answer is affirmative) Xiaomi will decide to add a model with 8 GB of memory and bring this portable to the US market. Would you grab one keeping in mind that the prices mentioned above do not include the cost of a Windows license and could get a bit higher (or more than just "a bit") outside China?
