Xiaomi has debuted new RedmiBooks for the Indian market, the 15 Pro and 15 e-Learning Edition. However, the former is not the PC released under a very similar name earlier in 2021: it has an FHD display, whereas the 'original' has up to 3.2K panels and the option of Ryzen power. Furthermore, this new market-specific version is made of metallic-effect polycarbonate rather than actual metal.
The 15 Pro does at least have the same Tiger Lake platform as one of the Pro 15 SKUs, at least: the Core i5-11300H, which is paired with 8GB of DDR4-3200MHz RAM and a 512GB NVMe SSD in this new Indian variant.
Xiaomi hypes the new machine with "a LOT of connectivity options!"...unfortunately, USB type-C is not even one of them: it makes do with dual 3.2 Gen 1 and single 2.0 type-A ports instead, along with a 1.4 HDMI port, a LAN port, an SD card slot and a 3.5mm jack.
It has a webcam of 720p in resolution, which is not improved in its Xiaomi launches the new e-Learning Edition of the Mi Notebook 14 in Indiae-Learning Edition, as one might hope based on the name of the thing. This variant's specs are nearly identical to that of the "Pro", with the exception of its i3-115G4 processor, found in SKUs with either 256GB or 512GB SSDs.
That slight expansion in choice results in the lowest price within this new series: INR 41,999 (~US$566), or INR 3,000 (~$40) more for the top-end storage option. The RedmiBook 15 Pro, on the other hand, is INR 49,999 (~$674), and can be ordered with Windows 10 (upgradable to 11) pre-installed alongside its e-Learning counterpart from August 6, 2021 from sites such as Mi.com/in or Flipkart.
