Every product coming our way from Xiaomi has a ‘certain code’ inserted in its gene – it should become an absolute leader in its niche. This statement is valid for all niches and all products designed by this company. Many know this brand due to its smartphones and smart home products. But Xiaomi also makes great laptops. Last year it launched the Xiaomi Air 12/13. Most of the customers didn’t believe they can make competition to Apple, Lenovo, and other brands are known for their high-end laptops. But these notebooks occupy about 15% of the Chinese laptop market. By the way, it was the third after Apple and Lenovo. This was a great motivation that came in with the Xiaomi Notebook Pro sporting the 8th-gen Intel Core-i chips and many high-end specs. But the Notebook Pro has won customers’ hearts due to an ability to provide top-brand-like performance for the half price. The lowest variant of this awesome product that is equipped with an Intel Core i5 chip has got a huge discount, and now it’s offered for only $859.99 if using the coupon (code: MIBOOKPRO).
The Xiaomi notebooks have always come with a minimalistic design. The Xiaomi Notebook Pro is no exception. The manufacturer event didn’t put the logo on the top, though it’s beloved too much by customers.
The laptop sports a 15.6-inch display providing a 1080p resolution, wide viewing angle, 5.2mm narrow frame, and a screen ratio up to 81.5%. However, Xiaomi has enhanced the color gamut. Now it’s 72% NTSC in comparison to the Mi Air 13’s 50% color gamut. So the viewing experience will be the way better. The display can be hinged at 140 degrees maximum.
As we said, the Xiaomi Notebook Pro comes with an 8th-gen i5-8250U processor. It is paired with a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics, 8/16GB DDR4 (2400 MHz) memory, 256GB PCI-E / NVMe SSD (dual card slot expandable), and supports dual antenna 802.11ac Wi-Fi. This GPU is the main alternative to the GeForce 940MX. There is also an 8000mAh battery that provides a long battery life and charges up to 50% in 35 minutes due to the faster USB-C interface and 1C fast charge support. Generally, there is an HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports as well as a 3.5mm audio jack placed on the left side, while two USB Type-C interfaces, card reader, and a microphone hole are on the right. It runs on Windows 10.
