Linux and older generation processors should bring down costs significantly for the Chinese manufacturer.

While major manufacturers like Toshiba and Fujitsu are exiting the notebook business, Chinese companies like Xiaomi are seeing it as new market opportunity. Previous rumors have already pointed to a family of Xiaomi notebooks by early 2016, though the manufacturer has yet to announce official models.

More recently, however, a message allegedly from the team responsible for the development of the Xioami notebook is claiming that the new series will carry the Mi label and have Inventec as the ODM. Suppliers are also stating that Xiaomi will have two notebooks - one for the 12.5-inch category designed by Inventec and one for the 13.3-inch category designed by Compal.

The same Chinese source says a 15.6-inch model could also be in development with the following specifications:

  • OS: Linux
  • Processor: Intel, Core i7 Haswell
  • RAM: 8 GB RAM
  • Graphics: Nvidia, GeForce GTX 760M with 2 GB VRAM
  • Display: 15.6-inch, Full HD, 1920 x 1080 resolution display, LED backlight
  • Price: Under 3000 Yuan

By waiving the latest technology from Intel and Nvidia, Xiaomi can keep costs as low as possible. The notebook is expected to sell for as low as 430 Euros if the rumors prove to be true. Additional images and details on the Xiaomi notebook can be found on our earlier report.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
