Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, today announced the official launch of its Xiaomi Notebook Air Quad-Core 17 version which comes with a 5999 Yuan ($945) price tag. Just like its predecessor, this laptop comes without any logo on its outer surface which will leave many guessing. However, there is a conspicuous “Mi” branding on the bottom bezel of the display.
This device comes in gray color coupled with black keyboard and bezels. It is only 14.8mm thick and weighs a paltry 1.3kg which makes it conducive to carry around. It is equipped with a 13.3-inch screen and the bezels are only 5.59mm thick, though the bottom bezel is a bit thicker. This version of Xiaomi Notebook Air uses a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and it has a display resolution of 1920 × 1080. Its 170-degree wide viewing angle coupled with an 80.1% screen-to-body ratio ensures that users have a pleasant display.
For the hardware, the Xiaomi Notebook Air Quad-Core i7 version is equipped with an 8th Gen. Intel Core i7-8550U chip coupled with 8GB DDR4 RAM and 256GB PCle SSD. It also has an inbuilt NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GU with 2GB DDR5 memory. The battery is a 578Wh large density battery for a lasting usage time. USB-C interface, 2 x USB 3.0 port, HDMI interface, 3.5mm headphone jack, and microphones are some of the available interfaces for connectivity.
This product will be available on the 27th of February by 10 o’clock which happens to be the same day that the second batch of Xiaomi Mi TV4 will be on sale.
