Competition for MacBook Pro in the form of Xiaomi

Chinese company Xiaomi is known for its smartphone production. However, it is not the only area that it focuses on. In his portfolio he has a number of great laptops. Like mobile phones, there’s no inspiration at Apple. The same is true of the new Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, which the Chinese manufacturer introduced as its flagship. In addition to inspiration, the company is also the main competitor.

The materials and machining used are top-notch

Used materials and workshop work is first-class and the company does not make small targets. The entire body is made of aluminum and the display has a protective cover in the form of a third generation Gorilla Glass. They scrambled the scratches.

The protective frame around the display, which is really thin, allows you to reach 15.6 inches, which puts it in the same category as the MacBook Pro of the same size. The overall dimensions of Xiaomi Mi are 360.7 x 243.6 x 15.9 mm and weight is 1.95 kg.

Gorilla Glass’s protective cover is a top-class, but the display itself is not worth much. First, it is shiny and secondly, it is offered in FullHD resolution only. But what you please is the intestines hidden under the chassis.

You can look forward to the eighth generation of Intel Core i7 processors with improved graphics card (Nvidia GeForce MX150), up to 16 GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 RAM and internal memory of 256 GB PCIe SSD. With such high output, more heat is produced. The machine should be equipped with a new and very efficient cooling system.

The interface is welcoming and the keyboard is comfortable

The notebook comes with a fully backlit keyboard, which is 19% larger than tan on the MacBook Pro. Writing should be more comfortable. There is also a trackpad that has an integrated fingerprint reader compatible with Windows Hello.

Compared to the MacBook Pro, Xiaomi offers more connectivity. There are two USB Type-C USB ports, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, HDMI, 3.5 headphone connectors, and a 3-in-1 memory card reader. Wi-Fi 802.11ac is wireless. The laptop also includes a 60Wh battery that lasts up to 8, 5 hours of operation.
