Reviews for the Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G

70% Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G Review: All About That Display
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G seems better suited for work than entertainment, and for those who just want a compact PC at home or in the office, not a laptop to use on the go. There are a lot of compelling bullet points on its product listing, most notably the high-res, high-refresh-rate, 16:10 display. Xiaomi has chosen well in terms of core hardware too. However, actual usage revealed a few weak spots – the keyboard, trackpad, port selection, fan noise, and battery life. These might not seem like huge deals, but if you aren't satisfied with even one of these things, long-term usage can become frustrating. Priced at Rs. 76,999, this version of the Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G is not as easy to recommend as its predecessors. You could get a competent gaming laptop, or a much lighter ultraportable, or a 2-in-1 with a touchscreen for the same amount. The MacBook Air (M1) is also available for not too much more. Any potential buyer will have to consider whether they want the very specific combination of features and the performance that the Notebook Pro 120G offers.

70% Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G review: a well-built all-rounder
Source: 91mobiles English
The Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G is priced at Rs 74,999, and for its asking price, brings quite a bit to the table. It has a few niggles like thermal management and screen brightness as well, but on the positive side, stands out in many other aspects. Its classy design, good colour reproduction, ergonomic keyboard, decent performance and 100W charging are some of the advantages. The laptop works well as a daily workhorse for office and college use, and the dedicated Nvidia MX 550 graphics combined with the 120Hz, colour-accurate screen lend it some cred as a laptop that can serve up basic gaming, colour correction and light editing work as well. The Notebook Pro 120 model that bears the same specs except for the dedicated graphics is cheaper by Rs 5k, but I think that difference is marginal at this price range, so the 120G does come across as a compelling option.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.4 kg:

In former time,s this weight was typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, often 15 inch laptops weigh as much.


Xiaomi Tech was founded as a Chinese smartphone producer in 2010 and soon reached high market shares in its home market. Although Xiaomi is not one of the Top 5 smartphone manufacturers worldwide in 2016, it is nevertheless one of the big global players in this market segment.

Since 2015 there are many reviews. The ratings have been above average since 2016.

70%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
