Laptop buyers in China will undoubtedly be intrigued by the new range of RedmiBook Pro models that have just been launched by Xiaomi. Three RedmiBook Pro 14 SKUs are currently listed on the JD.com retail site and there are also three variants of the RedmiBook Pro 15 laptop for shoppers to choose from. The Intel-based RedmiBook Pro laptops, which have metal cases and are Wi-Fi 6 capable, come in “starlight grey” that unsurprisingly looks suspiciously similar to the “space gray” of an Apple MacBook Pro. The key specs for the Xiaomi RedmiBook Pro laptops are as follows:
- RedmiBook Pro 14: Intel Core i5-1135G7, Intel Xe iGPU, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, 2.5K display – 4,699 yuan (US$728; although this model has a temporary launch price of 4,499 yuan (US$697))
- RedmiBook Pro 14: Intel Core i5-1135G7, GeForce MX450 dGPU, 16 GB RAM, 512 GB SSD, 2.5K display – 5,299 yuan (US$821)

The RedmiBook Pro 15’s 3.2K display should make the laptop appealing to gamers as it also features a variable refresh rate from 60 Hz to 90 Hz while the RedmiBook Pro 14 is restricted to 60 Hz. The larger RedmiBook Pro also comes with a larger battery: 70 Wh vs. 56 Wh. Both of the MacBook Pro mimics feature MIUI+, Windows 10 OS, a fingerprint sensor, and 100% sRGB coverage. Port connectivity is limited to 1x USB 2.0 and a 3.5 mm jack on one side and 1x USB Type-C, 1x HDMI, 1x USB 3.2 Gen1, and 1x Thunderbolt 4 on the other side. The RedmiBook Pro 14 is available to pre-order now and goes on sale on March 4, and pre-orders for the Pro 15 begin on March 6 with sales starting on March 15.
