This time, Xiaomi tried a new thing by launching a device in an entirely new category them. As always Xiaomi compared their product with Apple.

So, it looks like Apple products have some good specs (better clock speed, better battery) than Mi Notebook but the Mi Notebook is not trash. It carries the same processor, the same amount of RAM and it’s light and smaller than the MacBook air and it actually costs way less that the Macbook Air. The Apple Macbook Air costs around 999$~96,900Rs and Mi Notebook costs around 749$~50,000Rs. So, in that case, Mi Notebook is a way better option (on paper).

We have to wait to see how the Mi Notebook performs in the real life scenario and how it handles the day to day tasks and gaming, will it heat up???
