Xiaomi's first notebook runs Windows, is powered by Intel Skylake processors, and starts at just $525 USD.

The long-awaited Xiaomi notebook is finally official, and it looks like one by Apple, even has a name currently used by Apple, only that comes with Windows and is cheaper. According to Xiaomi, two configurations of the new Mi Notebook Air will hit the Chinese market later this month, starting around $525 USD.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air comes in two sizes, namely 12.5 and 13.3 inches. The smaller one is driven by an Intel Core m3 processor, 4 GB memory, and one 128 GB SSD. Since this is an entry-range model, it uses the integrated graphics adapter. The 13.3-inch Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air is powered by an Intel Core i5 6200U processor, next to 8 GB RAM, 256 GB SSD storage, and a dedicated graphics adapter - the NVIDIA GeForce 940MX GPU with 1 GB GDDR5 memory.

While the smaller Mi Notebook Air promises up to 11.5 hours of autonomy on a single charge, the 13.3-inch model has a shorter battery life - around 9.5 hours, according to Xiaomi. Both run Windows 10 Home and are expected to retail for $525 USD and $750 USD in China. Unfortunately, there is no information on their international launch yet, but we will let you know as soon as we find out anything about it.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
