Xiaomi takes on the MacBook Pro by adding back some ports

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro vs Macbook Pro: Pricing and Specs Comparison
Derrick Tucker | 12 September, 2017, 00:44

The company recently made a bevy of announcements which included the new Xiaomi Mi A1 smartphone, which the company had no problem comparing to the iPhone 7 Plus, the Mi Mix 2 and now a new Notebook that will take on Apple's MacBook Pro.

We called the Notebook Pro laptop from Xiaomi "the gen-next laptop" for a reason. Its 15.6-inch display only has a resolution of 1080p, which seems a bit out of step with other high-end machines these days.

The new Mi Notebook Pro will directly compete with the Apple MacBook Pro. In addition, Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro has an improved keyboard, a Harman Infinity custom speakers and Dolby certification.

This year, Xioami has targeted Apple's MacBook Pro line with the recently announced Mi Notebook Pro.

Western Alberta unemployment rate up slightly from July
The Bank of Canada noted earlier in the week that wage growth had been "more subdued" than historical trends have shown. The lowest unemployment rate was in Quebec City, Quebec at 3.8%, and the highest, in St.John's Newfoundland at 15.1%.

Not a whole lot of details are known about the product save that it is likely to be released in China first at a retail price of 6399 Chinese Yuan (US$982). The set of connectors of Mi Pro Notebook includes two USB Type-C and USB 3.0, one HDMI, a slot for three types of SD memory cards and a 3.5 mm audio Jack. Apart from these, Mi Notebook Pro also comes with a fingerprint sensor in the touchpad itself which is powered by Microsoft Windows Hello. The Xiaomi Mi Note book Pro is available in Dark Gray color variant. Gone are the days where you would have to rely on just two cores because Intel's latest lineup gives you command at 4 cores and 8 threads. The dual 12MP rear cams can produce 2x optical zoom and bokeh effects, also sporting OIS, while the under-glass fingerprint sensor sounds way more exciting than it looks.

Moving on, the keyboard is backlit and the company has claimed that the keyboard area is 19 percent larger than the MacBook Pro.

As for the pricing, the Notebook Pro is obviously going to be more expensive than its predecessor, with the cheapest option starting from 5599 RMB ($858).

The top-end Mi Notebook Pro gets a Core i7 8550U processor and 16GB of RAM. The notebook starts off with a price of 5,599 CNY (RM 3,609.90) for the Core i5 model.
