The rumour that Xiaomi are working on a laptop have been floating around for almost a year now, now new details have emerged detailing what the price and specifications for the device might be.
New details emerged today claiming to tell everything we want to know about the rumoured Xiaomi laptop. Apparently the device will go on sale as an affordable alternative to the new Apple Macbook with all metal body, but with a choice of screen sizes. One option will be a sub 12.5-inch model while the other a larger 15.6-inch device.
Under the hood of the laptop insiders say we will find a Intel i7 4th generation processor, 8GB RAM and Nvidia GeForce GTX 760M GPU. The screen will feature LED backlit technology with a modest resolution of 1920 x 1080.
As for the operating system, well today’s rumours say Linux will be used, but with Xiaomi’s own UI. Think of it as a Chinese version of Chrome OS made by Xiaomi with a lot of cloud apps. However, we won’t be surprised if the laptop is also ready to run Windows 10 too like the recently released Xiaomi Mi Pad 2.
Pricing for the Xiaomi laptop is said to be just 2999 Yuan, making it a very affordable laptop, especially if it does feature an alloy body.
