Xiaomi’s existing lineup of Mi Notebook laptops is quite popular. The company offers a wide range of laptops in China and they have just added two new ultra-premium machines to the lineup – The Mi Laptop Pro 14 and the Mi Laptop Pro 15.
The newly launched Mi Laptop Pro 14 and the Mi Laptop Pro 15 are high-end laptops with premium features and top-notch specifications. The laptops’ chassis is made out of 600 series aviation-grade aluminium alloy and the unibody design makes them identical to Apple’s MacBook Pro laptop.
Mi Laptop Pro 14
The Mi Laptop Pro 14 sports a 14-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. It supports up to 120Hz refresh rate and it has an aspect ratio of 16:10. Xiaomi also claims that this display is highly colour accurate with ΔE≈1.5 colour accuracy. The display also comes with TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light Certification.
The laptop is powered by the 11th Gen Intel Core processor coupled with 16GB RAM. You get to choose between either the Intel Core i5-11300H or the Intel Core i7-11370H processors. The Nvidia GeForce MX450 is optional on the Core i5 version but the Core i7 version has the discrete GPU as standard. You also get a 512GB PCIe SSD for storage.
The laptop also features a 56Whr battery with 100W fast charging support. In terms of the ports, we are looking at 3 USB Type-C ports (one of them is Thunderbolt) and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Other noteworthy features of the laptop include a backlit keyboard, a large touchpad like the MacBook Pro, and a fingerprint scanner.
Mi Laptop Pro 15
Moving on to the Mi Laptop Pro 15, it features a 15.6-inch 3.5K panel with a resolution of 3000 x 2000 pixels. This one is an OLED panel with Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
