The Xiaomi RedmiBook Pro 14 features a 14-inch and 16:10 display, Intel Tiger Lake processors, plenty of ports and even an NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU in some cases. Third-party retailers have already started selling the laptop too, although for far more than Xiaomi prices it in China.

Xiaomi only launched the RedmiBook Pro 14 a few days ago, during which it also revealed the RedmiBook Pro 15. Currently, the company has only released the two laptops in China, where they are available to order for as little as CNY 4,449 (~US$728), or CNY 6,299 (~US$976) for the 15-inch model. Nonetheless, AliExpress and Banggood are already taking orders for the RedmiBook Pro 14.

Predictably, the retailers are selling the laptop at far higher prices than Xiaomi is in China. AliExpress is more price-competitive than Banggood, although the RedmiBook Pro 14 still costs at least US$999.99 on the former. However, that entry price only gets you an Intel Core i5-1135G7 and no dedicated GPU. If you want the latter, then you must pay US$1,129.99 on AliExpress, or US$1,259.99 for a dedicated GPU and a Core i7-1165G7 processor.

By contrast, the RedmiBook Pro 14 starts at US$1,049.99 on Banggood and rises to US$1,299.99 for the Core i7 and NVIDIA model. To recap, the RedmiBook Pro 14 has an aluminium alloy chassis, a 16:10 aspect ratio display, 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB PCIe SSD. Additionally, the display operates natively at 2,560 x 1,600 pixels and supposedly supports 100% of the sRGB colour space. Xiaomi quotes up to 15 hours of battery life between charges, although we would be surprised if the device can last that long on its 56 Wh battery.

Xiaomi is yet to confirm if it plans to release the RedmiBook Pro 14 globally. Typically, the company does not sell its Mi or Redmi laptops in Europe, the UK or the US, though. Hence, third-party retailers like AliExpress and Banggood may be the only viable options for the RedmiBook Pro 14 and, by extension, the RedmiBook Pro 15.
