Real Photos and Price of Mi Notebook Leaks

by Habeeb Onawole 18

We’ve been getting bits and pieces over the past few weeks about the Mi Notebook, but what we have today is more than bits and pieces. It’s a real life image to whet your appetite.

A real life image of a man using what appears to be the Xiaomi Mi Notebook was posted online today. The image shows the side view of an all-metal PC which fits the description of the Mi Notebook, although the Mi logo is not visible. The picture also shows the Mi Notebook sporting very thin bezels.

From the image we can confirm it will indeed have a USB Type-C port for charging. There’s also a full size port beside it which should probably USB 3.0.

Previous leaks revealed the price and a new bunch of specs. The standard version will cost 3999 Yuan (roughly $600) and will feature a low power Intel Core-i5 processor, 8GB DDR4 RAM, and 256GB of SSD storage.

The Mi Notebook Pro on the other hand will feature a 15.6″ screen, an Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor, an NVIDIA GTX 970M 4GB DDR5 graphics card, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and 512GB of SSD storage all for a 6699 Yuan (roughly $1000) price tag.

There’s also a spec comparison sheet which compares the Mi Notebook Pro to other PCs such as the Lenovo Yoga 700, an Asus ROG PC, and the Macbook Pro. While it isn’t the cheapest on the list, it still holds the award for value for money seeing as it offers more storage than the  Lenovo and Macbook Pro and has the same graphics card as the ASUS ROG. The sheet also shows that the Mi Notebook Pro will be able to offer up to 6 hours of battery life.

    Ok… so we have a low-end / bureautic version at $600 and a gaming version at $1000. Can’t see no “Xiaomi-esque” agressive pricetag here.

  • Ionut Johnny

    1000 $ is a very good price for those specs, I bought my laptop with the same specs with almost 2000 $.

    • Muhammad Yasir

      you know how to throw money :p

      • Ionut Johnny

        No, I was preparing to move to UK for a long time so I bought what I use most of the time to relax and being economic 😀

  • Muhammad Yasir

    too expensive !

    • Faisal Shaharyar

      you wont get a laptop with nVidia 970M within $1200. let alone $1500.
      the closest one we get in India is around $1400 but with 8 GB RAM, nVidia 960M, and 128 GB SSD.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        ROG … that brand name is costly AF.
        so i can understand.

        • Faisal Shaharyar

          so can you share any details of a laptop which is 75% similar to the performance level of $1000 xiaomi machine and costs around $1200.

          • Stefanus Alfian

            errr Lenovo Y50

          • Stefanus Alfian

            you say only performance right? Lenovo Y50 faster than that

          • Faisal Shaharyar

            is it slim and whats the price have looked into that?

      • Stefanus Alfian

        and know they use gtx940m dude, don’t have to much hope on not reliable leak

  • roni24

    very expensive
    lenovo laptop is cheaper, even in my country near to my home
    forget about it

    • Zenkada

      send me that laptop and price

      • Stefanus Alfian

        yeah lenovo more cheaper in my country, y50 around $988,22 (price when y50 out in my local store)

        • Zenkada

          I just looked for lenovo notebooks locally and similiar notebook I can find for 1200€. But if I add taxes and fees to Mi notebook, I end up at the same price.

          BTW: Are you watching conference? Their are talking about Mi Air now.

          • Stefanus Alfian

            yeah i see it, and still cheaper lenovo

            but 1 point i like was the slim body of the notebook

  • ull

    it will be difficult to attack lenovo but it seems to me it’s still cheaper than the thinkpad family with the same specs
    however, there are some unknowns : quality of the whole laptop, quality of the screen and if there is a dual boot preinstalled linux version. Is the first version with nvidia optimus version and how would it cope with linux ?
