  • Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro takes aim at Apple again

The company said that the Mi Notebook Pro is way more powerful than its Mi Notebook Air which was released a year ago. The Mi Notebook Pro uses a magnesium alloy chassis that gives it enough strength to survive hits and drops that it may encounter during regular usage.

It has a 15.6-inch 1080p display, which is probably the weakest link in this setup. Xiaomi is also releasing a premium Ceramic edition of the smartphone with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

The Mi Notebook Pro will be offered in several variants, with the most high-end one being powered by the eighth generation of the Intel Core i7 processor built on the Kaby Lake architecture. The two more models price is RMD 6,399 (roughly Rs 62,000) and RMD 6,999 (around Rs 68,700). The two smartphones were confirmed to launch before the launch event itself, but the Mi Notebook Pro announcement came as a surprise to many.

Xiaomi punts the Notebook Pro as light and thin - with the laptop measuring 15.9mm thick and weighing 1.95kg. The screen is protected by Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 and seems rather durable, in addition to being able to display around 72 percent of the NTSC color gamut.

The graphics on the laptop is managed by Nvidia GeForce MX150.

The Mi Notebook Pro comes packed with state-of-the-art technology and has a slick design that should help it compete with other Windows laptops as well the Apple MacBook Pro. "We designed a special cooling system, in order to get temperature evenly distributed and maintained", said Lei Jun in his keynote.

It also features Harman Infinity speakers, along with Dolby ATMOS support.

Pricing for the new Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro will start at around $858 for the i5 model with 8GB of RAM, the top model with the i7 and 16GB of RAM will cost around $1072. Units with less RAM and Core i5 CPUs are available at lower prices. On the connectivity front, the device support two USB Type-C ports, HDMI port, two USB Type-A ports, 3-in-1 SD card slot, WiFi 802.11 ac, and 3.5mm headphone jack.

The base model of the laptop will be priced at $980 which is half the price of Apple Macbook Pro.
