Xiaomi Launches The Mi Notebook Pro

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro with 15.6-inch display, Intel Core i7 chipset launched: Price, specifications

The newly announced Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro also features a fingerprint sensor bundled within the trackpad, has special cooling system to keep it running and surprisingly, the entire launch event was spent comparing the new laptop with the Apple Macbook Pro directly to showcase how superior it is.

The nomenclature of the Mi Notebook Pro is very similar to the MacBook Pro, has a 15.6-inch 1920 x 1080 px display and the top-end variant is powered by an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16GB RAM and a Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics chip.

Xiaomi entered the laptop markets a year ago with the launch of the Mi Notebook Air. This also means the laptop comes with support for Windows Hello. The tech allows the Mi Note book Pro to charge up to 50% in 35 minutes. There is no word right now whether the Notebook Pro will launch in the global markets or not hence, how much of a threat the Xiaomi laptop will be to the MacBook Pro is yet to be seen. Xiaomi has compared the ports to only 4 thunderbolt ports and a headphone jack of the MacBook Pro. The new design easily cools down the laptop.
