Home » Xiaomi announces a new laptop that looks like a MacBook
And it's the first laptop that's announced to come with Intel's 8th Generation processors.

UPDATE at 23:10, September 11, 2017 – Added specs for the 3 configuration models available

Today marks the launch of Xiaomi’s latest product offerings, a smartphone that is anticipated to bring a little competition with Samsung’s Note 8 and even Apple’s rumored iPhone X, (which is going to be unveiled tomorrow), and a laptop which is the first one in the world, perhaps, to sport Intel’s 8th Generation Core i7 processors.

First unveiled at today’s event in Beijing is the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, a laptop that’s equipped with the newest 8th Generation Intel Core i-series processors, NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU, and will come on either 8/16GB configuration. Other features are detailed on the photo below.

Featuring a dark gray ‘Mac’ like design, the Mi Notebook Pro comes with a 15.6-inch display, coated with 3rd gen Corning Gorilla Glass for protection.

Slight advantages to the MacBook Pro

Although we said earlier that it looks like the MacBook Pro, it has a slightly larger keyboard profile than MBP, and it has the fingerprint sensor integrated in touch pad. It also retains the important ports like SD slots, HDMI, USB Type A ports along with a fully-functional USB Type C port used for charging and even video output.
