Xiaomi Enters Laptops With Mi Notebook Air

E-mail Print PDF

So the rumours were correct after all-- Xiaomi is indeed set to further rival Apple with the Mi Notebook Air, a slim premium Windows notebook with an aluminium body similar to the MacBook Air.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook AirThe Mi Notebook Air comes in 2 sizes, 13.3- and 12.5-inch. The larger version is, predictably, the more powerful, featuring an Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce 940MX mobile graphics card that Xiaomi says runs Dota 2 at 85fps at HD resolution. Making the notebook even more similar to the latest MacBooks is the USB port of choice, Type-C.

Meanwhile the smaller 12.5-inch version carries an Intel Core M3 CPU, integrated graphics and a 128GB SSD, but can beat its larger sibling at battery life-- its battery has enough power for 11-and-a-half hours of use on a single charge, unlike the 9-and-a-half hours of use provided by the battery inside the 13.3-inch notebook.

IDC EMEA PCs

Helping improve EMEA PC shipments are notebooks, with declines stabilising at -1.7% Y-o-Y, the first Y-o-Y comparison not impacted by Bing shipments. Notebooks actually drive W. European shipments with 4.1% growth, the result of demand from the commercial segment bringing about EMEA commercial notebook growth of 3.7%.

However consumer markets remain on the decline due to a difficult market created by the now familiar combination of volatile exchange rates, oil price fluctuations, macroeconomic and political developments.
