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 stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
