Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro vs Macbook Pro: Pricing and Specs Comparison

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. Additionally, it packs with Nvidia's new Geforce MX 150 chip.This chip is by far the most powerful graphical integrated chip by Intel which Xiaomi's Notebook is offering. The notebook is Xiaomi's answer to the 2017 Apple MacBook Pro, and boasts a lighter, thinner design.

It also comes with a SSD which means everything will be faster, you can even expand your storage later. However, it costs three times the original price in China and India which is the primary focus for Xiaomi.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro vs Macbook Pro: Pricing and Specs Comparison

Regarding the specifications, the Mi Notebook Pro has a 15.6-inch display with has a Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 for the protection of the notebook screen. The fingerprint sensor is located on the top right corner of the touchpad, and is powered by Microsoft Windows Hello. "We want to provide good and affordable products that are of high values, sounds very simple but it's hard to do", said Xiaomi's founder and CEO Lei Jun while presenting the new laptop. However, let us first take a look at the specifications and features of the Xiaomi Notebook Pro. The Mi Notebook Pro uses a magnesium alloy chassis that gives it enough strength to survive hits and drops that it may encounter during regular usage. Xiaomi was also keen to point out the 1.5mm key travel on its backlit full-size keyboard, and admittedly, I've yet to get used to the shallow key travel on my new MacBook Pro since its arrival two weeks ago.

The battery promises 60Wh of power, along with support for 1C quick charge.

The weight of this laptop is 1.95 KG.

Dual Harman Infinity custom speaker setup of 2.5W each.

The Core i7 processor and 16GB RAM variant will feature a pricing of 6999 Chinese Yuan ($1074 or Rs. 68,630 approx). After several anticipations and leaks, Xiaomi's two smartphones were expected to unveil today at the launch event. 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 U.S. availability anytime soon. These aren't exactly mind-blowing prices, but not that it matters, as the machine will only be available in China when it goes on sale on September 15th.
