The Chinese company Xiaomi has unveiled their new Mi Notebook Pro line at the Mi MIX 2 and Mi Note 3 launch event earlier today. The new notebooks are powered by Intel’s 8th generation CPUs and come with a 15.6-inch display protected by 3rd generation Gorilla Glass. Memory specs go up to 16 GB DDR4-2400, while storage options include SSDs with capacities between 256 GB and 1 TB. All the variants also pack the MX150 GPU from Nvidia.

The Mi Notebook Pro is marketed as a serious alternative to Apple’s MacBook Pro. In this respect, Xiaomi has increased the keyboard area on the Mi Notebook Pro by 19% compared to the MacBook Pro. The darker aluminum chassis is quite thin, and Xiaomi had to design a new extra-large cooling system in order to prevent overheating.

Other features that come standard with all variants include:
•    3-in-1 SD card reader
•    two USB Type-C ports
•    HDMI port
•    two USB 3.0 ports
•    3.5 mm headphone jack
•    Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.x
•    Harman Infinity custom-built speakers with Dolby Atmos certification
•    backlit keyboard and trackpad with fingerprint sensor
•    60 Wh battery with quick charge support (charges 50% in 35 minutes)
•    14.2 x 9.59 x 0.62 inches size and 4.29 pounds weight

Xiaomi only revealed the price for 3 variants and mentioned these will only be available in China for the time being:
•    Core i7/16GB RAM ~ US$1075 USD
•    Core i7/8GB RAM ~ US$981 USD
•    Core i5/8GB RAM ~ US$859 USD

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
