Xiaomi Mi Notebook receives new configurations this week, as the device is now available with an 8th gen Intel processor and 128 GB of storage. The device is only available in China for starters and we have details about pricing and specs below.
Meant to compete with lower priced ASUS models and still sporting a quality case, this device starts at $581 and goes to $727. For that amount you get an Intel 8th gen CPU and SSD storage. The product goes on sale in China on August 28th and there’s no info about a launch on other markets just yet. The base version of the machine has an Intel Core i5 CPU, as well as 4 GB of RAM.
The midrange model has the same CPU, but also 8 GB of RAM, while the high end model opts for a Core i7 and 8 GB of RAM. Otherwise, they all have the same 15.6 inch Full HD screen. Storage is quite generous, with both a 1 TB HDD and 128 GB of SSD. On the graphics front, we get an NVIDIA GeForce MX110 GPU with 2 GB of VRAM. Clearly not a machine for gaming.
As far as connectivity is concerned, we have two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, Ethernet, a card reader and an audio jack. Bluetooth and WiFi are also here. The good news is that we get a full sized keyboard and also a numeric pad. The product comes in Deep Gray and White and has dual 3W stereo speakers with Dolby Audio virtual surround.
Windows 10 is the OS, with Office preinstalled.
