The 13.3-inch Xiaomi is a respectable piece of hardware for being Xiaomi's first entry into the notebook world.

It hasn't even been a month since the Xiaomi notebook first became available and users have already brutally taken it apart. Websites IT168 and GeekGadgets have images of the internals of the Xiaomi notebook with hands-videos on how to properly remove the bottom plate.

It can be seen from the teardown that system RAM cannot be upgraded while both M.2 slots are accessible for easy storage expansion. GeekGadgets concludes that the Xoami has a clean and reasonable design despite being the Chinese company's first attempt at a full-fledged notebook.

Currently, the 12-inch Xioami can be configured with a Core M3-6Y30 CPU, 4 GB RAM, and 128 GB SSD for about 550 to 650 Euros depending on the import price from online retailers. Meanwhile, the 13.3-inch version can be configured with a Core i5-6200U, 8 GB RAM, and 256 GB SSD for 780 to 850 Euros depending on the retailer.

Both Xiaomi and Huawei have recently entered the notebook market with detachables and MacBook-like options. Nonetheless, projected sales will purportedly be much lower than initially anticipated according to suppliers close to DigiTimes. The notebook market as a whole has been stagnant over the past year while gaming notebooks have been slowly on the rise.

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.
