Xiaomi might be known to many as a maker of smartphones, but the company also dabbles in other kinds of products, such as laptops. In fact just recently Xiaomi has taken the wraps off their latest computing efforts in the form of the Mi Notebook Pro, which judging by the design and the way the company has advertised it, is looking a lot like Apple’s MacBook Pro.
In fact this is actually not the first time that Xiaomi has launched a laptop that looks similar to Apple’s products, just last year the company launched the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air, which based on its name is clearly positioned to take on Apple’s MacBook Air. That being said in terms of specs, the Mi Notebook Pro will feature a 15.6-inch Full HD display and will sport the latest Intel i7 quad-core processor.
It will support up to 16GB of RAM, 1TB of SSD, and will come with an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU. There is a fingerprint sensor built into the laptop’s trackpad, a 3-in-1 card reader, a couple of USB-C ports, some regular USB ports, a HDMI port, and it is priced starting at around $980, which makes it a lot cheaper than what Apple is asking for its MacBook Pros.
No word on a release date, but there’s a good chance that we’ll never see it released outside of China anyway.
