Xiaomi shamelessly ripped off the MacBook Pro with its new laptop

Xiaomi-Mi-Notebook-Pro

Company Xiaomi announced the Mi laptop Notebook Pro, powered by Intel Core eighth generation who, according to the manufacturer, up to 40% faster chip predecessors. The new notebook comes with the latest Intel i7 8th gen processor coupled with a dedicated graphics card. To top that up, Xiaomi is using a symmetrical super cooling system to keep the temperature under control on the inside. Apart from this, for security purposes, Xiaomi is bringing its Fingerprint Sensor on the Notebook Pro which is placed into the Trackpad section. Dubbed as Mi Notebook Pro, the Chinese OEM is touting that this model basically competes with 2017 Apple MacBook Pro. It claims to have 19 percent larger keyboard area than MacBook Pro.

Let us begin with the display - the Xiaomi Notebook Pro comes out into the markets with a 15.6 inched display, which is protected with a Gorilla Glass 3.

And when it comes to connectivity, the device feature a 3-in-1 SD card slot, two USB Type-C ports, a HDMI port, two USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Senate committee to interview Trump Jr. behind closed doors
Emails show the meeting was described to Trump Jr.as part of a Russian government effort to aid the Trump campaign. He told the Senate committee how he was overwhelmed with his father's marathon campaign, according to the Times .

As for the pricing, the Notebook Pro is obviously going to be more expensive than its predecessor, with the cheapest option starting from 5599 RMB ($858). However, availability in India is not clear at this point. Xiaomi is also releasing a premium Ceramic edition of the smartphone with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A Core i7/16GB RAM configuration will set you back the rough equivalent of $1,075 (6999 yuan), but it's probably wise not to expect U.S. availability anytime soon. To offer immersive audio experience, Xiaomi has included Harman Infinity custom-built speakers which is Dolby Atmos certified. All of that hardware is packed in a rather compact body which is 360.7 x 243.6 x 15.9mm in size and weighs only 1.95kg, making the Mi Notebook Pro a relatively portable offering given its sheer hardware power. In comparison, the entry level 13-inch 8GB DDR3 dual-core i5 MacBook Pro starts at £1,249.

The Mi Notebook Pro will go on sale in China for ¥5,699 ($840) for the variant with the Core i5 and 8GB of RAM.
