Mi Notebook

This is the Mi notebook that we think will sell the most. Priced at ₹41,999 for the base variant at the time of launch this laptop is the best bang for the buck. The base variant of the MI notebook comes with an i5 intel 10th generation processer and 8GB of Ram and a 256GB SSD for storage. Sadly, the base variant of this Mi notebook doesn’t get Nvidia graphics. Users will have to make do the intel UHD integrated graphics. To get the Nvidia dedicated graphics users will have to get the variant that has the 512GB SSD storage. That variant is priced at ₹47,999. There is another variant of the same Mi notebook that comes with 512GB SSD but has no Nvidia graphics and is priced at ₹44,999. 

The Mi notebook has a 14-inch anti-glare display which makes it perfect to be used in places that have a lot of lighting. When it comes to port selection the Mi note book has 2 x Type-A USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports. A USB 2.0 port. 1 HDMI port. 1 headphone jack and a power outlet port. The laptop also has a Scissor Mechanism ABS Texture with 1.3mm key travel which Xiaomi is claiming to give users a better typing experience. There is Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band wifi. The trackpad supports multi-touch gestures. The battery on the Mi notebook is 46Wh Battery which Xiaomi is claiming will give up to 10 hours of battery backup. One thing to note is that the Mi notebook doesn’t have a webcam built-in like most notebooks. Instead, a separate camera will be shipped to the customers.
