I would definitely have liked at least one USB Type-C port, an SD card slot, a faster NVMe SSD, and a backlit keyboard, but I think the package is reasonably well balanced overall. The Horizon Edition (Core i7 variant) is of course faster and sleeker, but it's more expensive by around 33 percent, which makes the standard Mi Notebook 14 well worth considering.

Starting at around Rs 43,999, the Mi Notebook 14 offers pretty much the same configuration and experience as it does on the higher-end variants of the device. As such, for the sake of making any buying decision easier, we're going to recommend the entry variant of the device as opposed to the upper-end MX250 dedicated GPU variant.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook 14 can be your pick if you are looking for a laptop in the price range of Rs 40,000 to Rs 50,000. The device comes with an Intel Core i5 processor and also performs quite well. It comes with a matte finish display and also enables users to enjoy casual gaming. The only things missing out is a backlit keyboard and an in-built webcam. But it is still better as compared to the other laptops which offer Core i3 processors in the price segment.

The Mi Notebook 14 leaves a good impression initially with its full metallic design, the Full HD matte finish display is yet another interesting trait. The battery life is outstanding, runs as much as 10 hours. The combination of the Intel Core i5-10210U with the discrete Nvidia Geforce MX 250 is great for a price of Rs 49,999 not to mention you get a faster 512 GB SSD storage instead of a mechanical HDD.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
