Xiaomi has launched a new version of its Mi Notebook Laptop 15.6-inch model in China. The new version has as its distinguishing feature from other models, the eighth-generation Intel Core i3 processor at its heart.
The Mi Notebook 15.6-inch laptop is already available in several variants having either the eighth-gen Intel Core i5 and eighth-gen Intel Core i7 chipset paired with 4GB RAM and 8GB RAM on some models. This new model is equipped with 4GB DDR4 memory as well as 128GB SSD. The laptop also comes with expandable storage slot that adds 32GB to the internal storage.
On the design aspect, the Mi Notebook 15.6-inch continues the no logo design of previous Xiaomi laptop models. The laptop is light and portable, just 19.9m thick despite using an all-metal casing. It is equipped with a 1080p display, dual fan cooling system, with 2+2 heat pipe layout to ensure stable performance. However, the arrangement of the keyboard has some redesign. The new Notebook now has a dedicated numerical keypad with dedicated keys for the calculator, browser, and scroll lock. The Mi Notebook is also equipped with dual 3W speakers and Dolby Audio surround sound technology. It comes pre-installed with genuine Microsoft Office and Xiaomi’s own sync assistant.

These include USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI interface, two USB 3.0, headset jack, three-in-one card reader, etc. The laptop is priced at just 3399 yuan ($491) which makes it the cheapest N15.6-inch Notebook around. Buyers can even get further discount by depositing 100yuan now and see that grow to 400 yuan by 11.11 when they will complete the payment to get it for just 3,099 yuan ($448). It will ship on November 11. We believe the laptop will be available soon outside China.
