Reviews for the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13.3 2016

85.9% Xiaomi Mi Air (13.3-inch) Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Successful debut. Xiaomi delivers its first product into the notebook field with the Mi Notebook Air. The Chinese manufacturer does not do things in a small way and wants to play in a league with established competitors. You can read in our detailed test review whether the upstart can perform such a feat or not.
70% Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13 review
Source: PC Advisor English
If importing the Xiaomi laptop then installing Windows 10 doesn't put you off then the Mi Notebook Air 13 is a decent choice. It offers great build quality and the specs mean great performance, namely thanks to the Nvidia graphics card (a rare thing) even if the processor is an old generation. Our main gripes are the lacklustre battery life and lack of an SD card slot.

This is the larger and more powerful 13.3″ Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air. It’s powered by a Core i5 6200U, 8gb of DDR4 clocked to 2133Mhz, 256GB Samsung NVMe SSD and Nvidia 940MX GPU with 1GB of DDR5 ram for 3D. It’s got switchable graphics so depending on what you’re doing it will use the Nvidia GPU or Intel 520 iGPU.
