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.

NVIDIA GeForce MX550: Entry level dedicated graphics card based on the TU117 with GDDR6 memory.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

70%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
