Xiaomi’s new notebook, Mi Notebook Air, created quite a buzz on Wednesday when it was announced, because of the specifications and it’s price.Shortly after Mi Notebook Air was unveiled, Lenovo announced a laptop dubbed Air 13 Pro. The new laptop will have a Intel I5-6200U processor with a 13.3-inch IPS display. The new laptop called “Lenovo Air Pro” has been spotted online at Jingdong’s J online store.
The laptop weighs 1.29kg compared with 1.28kg on Mi Notebook Air and having a thickness of 1.48cm. Equipped with 4GB RAM and 256GB of SSD storage. It also includes a 2GB NVIDIA GT940MX graphics card.
One feature that distinguishes Lenovo’s laptop from that of Xiaomi is fingerprint recognition. Fingerprint recognition is a useful feature and its absence on Mi Notebook Air can possibly tilt the tide in Lenovo’s favour. Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air might not have the fingerprint recognition feature but the laptop does have the ability to unlock via the Mi Band 2, enabled by the laptop’s Bluetooth v4.1 connectivity.
Lenovo’s Air 13 Pro is already available for pre-registration with a price tag of CNY 4,999 ($750), which is exactly the same as the price tag on 13.3-inch Mi Notebook Air. We must mention that the price will go up ($825) after the pre-sale.
In terms of competition, we all agree that both laptops offer really good features for a price that is quite lucrative. So what you would buy, Mi Notebook Air or Lenovo Air Pro!? Comment us below.
