Xiaomi is always expanding its product lineup and for the past years, they’ve become a trustworthy name, even in the laptop area. Now they seem to be prepping a brand new laptop, part of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook series. It has just leaked in GeekBench, so let’s check it out.
We don’t know much about the size or other specs, not even the diagonals. What we do know is that it’s going to rely on the current gen Intel Core i5-8265U processor, a 2018 quad core CPU, accompanied by 8 GB of RAM. The device runs Windows 10, which is no surprise and we expect the usual MacBook-style or Huawei MateBook-style design.
One thing that would be nice this time around would be an European keyboard. The scores in GeekBench look pretty solid, between the 4412 points of the single core sub test and the 12.414 of the multi core one. In 2018 Xiaomi launched a bunch of notebooks, including Core i3 cheaper versions. They even have gaming laptops out and also Core i7 alternatives.
They’re covering all bases, except for maybe business laptops. Expect metal cases, silver, rose gold and gold versions, perhaps even some more solid graphics cards as time passes.
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.
