First of all, the foremost laptop line from Xiaomi, the Mi Notebook Air runs on Windows 10. It comes in two different sizes – the powerful 13.3-inch and the portable 12.5-inch models. Both the laptops feature a slim body, a 1080p Full HD display with slim under-glass bezels, which still manages to fit in a 1MP webcam. There’s a backlit keyboard, a USB Type-C charging port and shows up its minimalistic metallic design – in gold or silver. No, there is any logo found outside.

The best part to take into action would be the flagship model costs just 4,999 yuan or about $750 Rs. 50,355 approximately.

Speaking about the 13.3-inch Mi Notebook Air. The model comes in just 14.8mm thick and weighs 1.28kg, compared to 17mm thick MacBook Air. It has a full-sized backlit keybaord with 1.3mm key travel, 3nits brightness and glass trackpad for precise cursor control and multi-finger gesture controls such as scrolling program switching, zoom and other multitasking features. It supports 1C fast charging technology, which could eventually take half and hour to charge the laptop to 50-percent.

The 13.3-inch model is powered by an Intel Core i5-6200U processor (up to 2.7GHz), paired with an NVIDIA GeForce 940X GPU (with 1GB GDDR5 RAM). Perhaps, this is very thinner and lighter than the 13-inch MacBook Air. You will also get 8GB of DDR4 RAM, 256GB of SSD via PCIe and one free SATA slot for expansion. While the 40Wh battery should be as good as up to 9.5 hours, and it can go from zero to 50% in just 30 minutes using the bundled USB-C charger.
