Xiaomi’s Latest Laptop Targets Apple’s MacBook Pro

Xiaomi entered the notebook market last year with its My Notebook Air that was designed to target Apple's MacBook in name and design. This year the Chinese company is shifting its focus to Apple's MacBook Pro with the launch of its own My Notebook Pro. The My Notebook Pro includes a 15.6-inch (1920 x 1080) screen with narrow bezels, the latest quad -core i7 processor, up to 16GB of RAM, up to 1TB of Nvidia GeForce MX150 SSD storage and GeForce MX150 graphics.

There is even a fingerprint sensor built into a precision trackpad, a 3-in-1 card reader, two USB-C ports, two standard USB ports and a full-size HDMI port. Xiaomi is quick to point out that this is a more diverse mix of ports than Apple's own MacBook Pro, which only features four USB-C Thunderbolt 3 ports. The specs certainly look good on paper (apart from a 1080p screen ), but we'll have to take a closer look at the laptop to find out more.

Xiaomi is pricing its My Notebook Pro at 6399 yuan (980 dollars) for the base model, but it is unclear when and where the laptop will be available. Xiaomi previously started selling its My Notebook Air in China, so it is likely that the Notebook Pro will be limited to China initially.
