The 2.4-pound Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air (2019) is now official in China and comes with Harman Kardon audio with DTS surround, fast charging, and more. The starting price (in China) is the equivalent of US$536 and this amount would get you the model with Intel Core m3-8100Y/4 GB RAM/128 GB storage.

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:

  • US$536: Intel Core m3-8100Y processor, 4 GB of memory, 128 GB internal storage
  • US$596: Intel Core m3-8100Y processor, 4 GB of memory, 256 GB internal storage
  • US$640: Intel Core i5-8200Y processor, 4 GB of memory, 256 GB internal storage

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?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
