Xiaomi last year decided to take on Apple in the laptop market, introducing

the Notebook Air as a rival to the MacBook and MacBook Air.


														
							

The Mi Notebook Pro is offered in three models, all with 8th-gen Intel Core processors, Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics with 2GB of RAM, a 256GB PCIe SSD, M.2 SATA for storage expansion, a space gray finish, and a fingerprint sensor. All come with a 15.6-inch display with a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080, which, based on my experience, is not an ideal configuration.

There’s also a full-size backlit keyboard too, as you might expect, USB Type-C, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, stereo Harman Infinity speakers, a front-facing camera, Corning Gorilla Glass, a large touchpad, and Windows 10 Home with Office Home and Student 2016 included.

The top-end Mi Notebook Pro gets a Core i7 8550U processor and 16GB of RAM. The mid-range option drops the RAM to 8GB, while the entry-level Mi Notebook Pro also drops the processor down to a Core i5 8250U.

The GeForce MX150 graphics can handle 4K output, via the USB Type-C port, up to 60Hz and up to 30Hz via HDMI. A maximum of three displays are supported. Xiaomi says that you can use two 4K monitors at the same time with the Mi Notebook Pro.
