Xiaomi's Mi Notebook Pro takes on Apple's Macbook

As of now the laptop is meant to sell only in China which means that it will run a Chinese version of Windows 10

In fact, Xiaomi called out the MacBook Pro by name when announcing its latest computing powerhouse, and made many comparisons to Apple's bestseller. A Core i7/16GB RAM configuration will set you back the rough equivalent of $1,075 (6999 yuan), but it's probably wise not to expect United States availability anytime soon. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Xiaomi plans to bring the Mi Notebook Pro to the United States (at this time).

It comes with a fingerprint scanner which is embedded in the touchpad. The Mi Notebook Pro is wrapped in magnesium alloy material. Like the Mi Notebook Air, which initially was only available in China, a similar approach towards the Mi Notebook Pro is expected.

The company has introduced this new generation laptops via their official Twitter handle with a few images of this stunning Mi Notebook Pro laptop. The laptop measures 360.7 x 243.6 x 15.9 mm and weighs 1.95kg.

- Compared to the MacBook Pro, the Mi Notebook Pro has a 19 per cent larger keyboard area.

The Mi Notebook Pro sports a 15.6-inch display which has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top for added support.

If that wasn't enough, the Mi Notebook Pro will also borrow elements from popular smart devices, which in this case translates into the inclusion of a fingerprint sensor built into the laptop's precision trackpad. 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. In terms of storage, the laptop up to a 1TB PCIe SSD for ultra-fast performance. It also features Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card making it the most powerful laptop on paper along with a bunch of nifty features. The speakers sport Harman Infinity tag.

The Core i7 processor and 16GB RAM variant will feature a pricing of 6999 Chinese Yuan ($1074 or Rs. 68,630 approx). The laptop is powered by 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor clocked at 4GHz, and there is an Intel Core i5 variant as well. It's unlikely the notebook will be available outside of China.
