Xiaomi is aiming to be your one-stop shop for pretty much anything. A few years back, this Chinese tech giant touched the laptop market with the Mi Notebook Air. Today, they’re doing things differently.
The company is turning its notebook game up a notch with the launch of the new Xiaomi Mi gaming laptop. And from the looks of it, it seems like Xiaomi got it right on the first try — something that isn’t really surprising for a company of its caliber.
The Mi Gaming Laptop looks a little identical to the Mi Notebook Pro, although this one is slightly chunkier to presumably improve the thermals. But still, you can tell that Xiaomi did its best to make it look as elegant as possible.
Speaking of sleekness, the Xiaomi’s first gaming laptop comes with Intel Kaby Lake processors and NVIDIA’s 10-series graphics cards. To cool things down, it is equipped with two fans.
Mi gaming laptop will be available in different configurations. From an Intel Core i5 or i7, a GTX 1050 Ti or a GTX 1060, up to 16GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD, and 1TB of HDD.
The screen sizes vary 12.5-inches, 13.3-inches, and 15.6-inches. And of course, it wouldn’t be a real gaming laptop without the RGB keyboard and 5 programmable macro keys.
Inputs wise, the Mi gaming laptop has four USB 3.0 ports, two USB Type-C, and HDMI port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack with a high-powered amplifier. Xiaomi is also highlighting its speakers that were tuned with Dolby Atmos.
The Xiaomi Mi gaming laptop will be available in China starting April 13. Prices start at RMB5,999 (~Php50,000) for the GTX 1050 Ti, 8GB RAM, and 128GB model. It can go up to RMB8,999 (~Php75,00) for the GTX 1060, 16GB, and 256GB SSD model.
