Xiaomi Debuts ‘Mi Notebook Pro’ to Take on Apple’s Macbook Pro

Last year, Xiaomi took a shot at Apple’s MacBook Air with its own ‘Mi Notebook Air’ laptop running Windows with a full-HD display, full-metal body and type-C USB charging. Now, the Chinese manufacturer is taking on the Macbook Pro with its new ‘Mi Notebook Pro’, featuring a 15.6” display and is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor with up to 16GB RAM and an Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics chip (via TechCrunch).

The newest machine includes a fingerprint sensor inside the trackpad, three-in-one SD card support, USB-C and regular USB ports, a headphones jack and a full HDMI slot. Xiaomi wasted no time highlighting that this selection offers far more options than the latest in Apple’s own Macbook Pro series.

Release-wise, it looks like another China-only product unless we hear otherwise from Xiaomi.

Xiaomi’s Mi Notebook Pro starts at $858 for an i5 chipset with 8GB, while the i7 version comes with 8GB for $980 or 16GB for $1,072.

The company has also tweeted a direct comparison of the Mi Notebook Pro with the Apple MacBook Pro. Check it out below and tell us what you think.
