Xiaomi Notebook May Come In Three Display Variants

by Joe 13

We have been hearing a lot about the upcoming Xiaomi Notebook PC. In fact, we have already come across the detailed specifications of a 15.6-inch model, which will be powered by the fourth gen Intel Haswell Core-i7 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M.

However, the new Xiaomi Notebook may have more than one display variant. According to reports, there are two other smaller variants as well, namely a 12.5-inch model, which will be made by Inventec as confirmed earlier and a 13.3-inch model made by Compal. The smallest version, namely the 12.5-inch Xiaomi Notebook should enter mass production sometime in April next year.

As for the 15.6-inch model, we already have the specifications of the device, thanks to an earlier leak. They are as follows:

  • Operating System: Linux
  • Processor: CPU series Intel Core i7 4th-generation family
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Screen size: 15.6-inches
  • Screen Resolution: 1920×1080
  • Screen technology: LED backlight
  • Graphics chip: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M
  • Memory capacity: 2GB
  • Price: 2999 Yuan ($466)

As you can see, the specs are pretty impressive for the price tag. However, one thing we have to note here is that these chips are a couple of generations old. The Core i7 is from the fourth generation Haswell family. Currently, we have the sixth generation Skylake Core chips. Moreover, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760M graphic card was released way back in 2013, which means by next year it should be pretty old.

As a result, like Hexus pointed out, it looks like Xiaomi is going to use chips that are a couple of generations old to keep the price down. This should help the company cut down the cost of the laptop and price it aggressively. Plus, the use of Linux instead of Windows will help it avoid hefty licensing fees.


Moreover, it is said that the Notebook will feature Macbook like design with all metal chassis and a thin body. Good looks, powerful specs and a reasonable price should help the company make its mark in the PC industry.

    No DVD/Blu-Ray unit?

    • Muhammad Yasir

      lol , use a usb connected one

      • PaulBV

        Nah, I’ll stay with a another laptop manufacturer.

          if the bray is mandatory for you then you should not opt for this one.But if you have second thoughts only about the cpu and graphic card then I suggest you should take a second look.i7 cpus are pretty powerful,even 2 gen behind(technically one because the 6th gen is rolling now) and with 8gb and independent graphic card 99% of all applications will be done easil with that 1% to be gaming.

          For me the most important thing,if these are actually the specs, is the battery and whether the metal chassis will provide sufficient air cooling and be silent,if they want the macbook feel…

      hehehe, really? in 2016? use the web instead…

      • PaulBV

        Hehe in 2016 with a 2013 CPU :)) Also, there are some of us who really use a Blu Ray unit and don’t stick only to web BD-rips

        • Marcelo Capillé

          Yeah PaulBV, OK, I know some people still use BRay, in this case I don´t see this unit as an option…
          knowing it´s a low-weight unit, having a disk reader increases the price and weight…
          and as for the 2013 specs, you get a very low sticker price, I don´t see that as a problem… if I wanted a 2016 CPU + GPU I´d pay 3X the price… fine with me…

    • Zenkada

      I hope that it doesn’t have one, so weight and price can be lower.

  • Muhammad Yasir

    as long as i can run Win 10 64 bit and do medium setting 40+ fps stable GAMING on it … IM ALL SOLD !

    • Zenkada

      Well, it seems that it will have low specs as article says to lower the price, so I don’t thing it will be good choice for gaming. And why would somebody put Windows on his machine?

      • Muhammad Yasir

        for GAMES , duh !

    • paranoid_gr

      With an i7,8gb ram and an independent 2gb graphics card you can 40+ fps on most common games, like LoL,2k16 and stuff, even if these are last years specs.But don’t expect to play heavy games on ultra high res.Gaming is a desktop area and will remain

    But with that kind of old processor spec, other big brand also will sell cheap because they want to clear up the old stock.

    I think older by 1 generation should be cheap enough.

    Don’t be so stingy with spec, like this xiaomi will ruin its reputation. So far everybody still got impression that if they buy xiaomi brand they will get good hardware spec with very cheap price.
