Xiaomi unveils new sleek ‘Notebook Air’

Chinese electronics firm Xiaomi is entering the laptop market by releasing two good-looking models of Mi Notebook Air.

Created to compete with Apple’s Mac, the Mi Notebook Air comes with a 13.3-inch laptop, and a smaller 12.5-inch version.

The heavier 13.3-inch model is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor and has featured specs like a 256GB SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce 940MX mobile graphic cards that enables the laptop to play video games at high frame rates.

Meanwhile, the less featured and lighter 12.5-inch version only has an Intel Core M3 processor, a 128GB SSD and an integrated graphics. Although the 12.5-inch is the less powerful version, it has a longer battery life of 11.5 hours compared to the 9.5 hours of the bigger model.

Both laptops feature a thin body, a 1080-pixel display with thin under-glass bezels, a backlit keyboard, a USB Type-C charging port, and a simplistic metallic design in gold or silver.

The bigger Mi Notebook Air is priced at 4,999 Chinese yuan or around $750 while the smaller version is priced at 3,499 yuan or around $525. Both will make its debut in China on August 2, but it is yet to be known if the two models will be available worldwide.
