Engadget: Xiaomi’s first laptop is the $750 Mi Notebook Air.
It wouldn’t be a Xiaomi event if it was just announcing one product. In addition to the new Redmi Pro smartphone, the Chinese company threw in a huge surprise by launching its first-ever laptop line, the Mi Notebook Air, running on Windows 10. It comes in two sizes — the powerful 13.3-inch and the portable 12.5-inch — and both feature a slim body, a 1080p display with slim under-glass bezels (while still managing to fit in a 1-megapixel webcam), a backlit keyboard, a USB Type-C charging port plus a minimalistic metallic design — in gold or silver, naturally — with no logo on the outside. The best part of all? The top-spec model costs just 4,999 yuan or about $750.
