Xiaomi has recently launched a range of Mi Air Notebooks that are touted as being ultra-thin in terms of their overall thickness. Just for comparison, the weight of the 12.5-inch Mi Air Notebook is 150gms lesser than the MacBook Air from Apple.
The new Mi Air Notebooks have three major variants based on their configurations. The difference is primarily in the processor fitted on them though some changes in the storage capacity can be noticed as well.
At the higher end is the one with the 8th generation Intel Core i5-8250U CPU. This is combined with 4GB RAM and 256GB storage. And then, there is a variant with the same 4GB RAM and 256GB storage but with the Intel Core i5-8250U processor. And at the lower end, the processor remains the same Intel Core i5-8250U, and the RAM 4GB, but the storage is 128GB.
The 12.5-inch display is full HD and the bezels have been kept thin at 5.71mm. There is a 13.3-inch display variant of the Mi Air Notebook available as well. Some of the additional features include a full-size keyboard and a multi-touch trackpad. The ports provided include a USB Type-C port, two USB Type-A ports, and a 3.5mm audio jack. On the battery life, there is a fast charging facility that can charge the laptops to 505 power in just 35 minutes.
If you are used to watching videos/movies on your TV or other big screen by connecting to your laptop, the Mi Air Notebooks may disappoint you since there is no HDMI port.
For the Chinese market, these Mi Air Notebooks have been priced at CNY4,299, 3,999 and 3,599 respectively. If converted these prices will be between Rs 44,000 and Rs 37,000. Gold and silver are the colours in which these laptops are being released by Xiaomi. While these notebooks have been launched in China, Xiaomi is yet to announce when it will come to India.
