Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air Takes Bite Out of Apple

...

Xiaomi entered the laptop market today with its Mi Notebook Air, a lightweight computer that arrives in China on Aug. 2.

The 13.3-inch model sports a Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics card, Intel Core i5 processor, 256GB PCle solid-state drive (with expandable SATA SSD slot), and 8GB DDR4 RAM—all in a 2.82-pound package.

If you're looking for something even more sleek, Mi Notebook Air also comes in a 12.5-inch variant, with an Intel Core m3 processor with integrated graphics card, 4GB RAM, and 128GB of expandable SSD.

Each machine—available in gold or silver—run Windows 10 out of the box. Plus, MIUI users can tap into the Mi Cloud Sync feature for access to contacts, text messages, photos, and notes stored in the cloud.

The larger model, which lasts 9.5 hours on a single charge, will retail for about $750; its smaller sibling, with an 11.5-hour battery life will cost $525.

"High-performance notebooks are typically very bulky, while thinner, lightweight notebooks are usually not as powerful," Xiaomi said in a press release. "Mi Notebook Air has not compromised on either performance or design."
