Verdict

1. Why not use i7-12700H?

  • This is a misunderstanding. The thin and light notebook uses the strongest processor, which does not necessarily improve performance. The most important thing is to see how many W performance is released.
  • After comparing the test data of a brand’s thin and light 35W i7-12700H with the Xiaomi Book Pro 14 2022’s i5-1240P, we found that the same 35W performance is released, and the performance of the two processors is almost the same.
  • Of course, compared with the previous generation i7-11370H, the i5-1240P has nearly double the multi-core performance advantage and 13% single-core performance advantage.
  • Therefore, on the thin and light notebook with a 35W performance release, there is no need to worry about whether to use the i7. The i5-1240P can provide the same performance at a much cheaper price.

2. 9 hours of battery life

  • The Xiaomi Book Pro 14 2022 has a measured battery life of 9 hours in the PCMark 10 modern office scene, which is considered an upper-middle level among the 12-generation Core thin and light notebooks. Don’t forget that this OLED screen is brighter than most business laptops.

3. Heat dissipation capacity

  • Xiaomi Book Pro 14 2022 is equipped with a hurricane cooling system with dual fans and dual heat pipes. When the i5-1240P was tested at 35W power consumption, the temperature was only 82 degrees, and the noise was not obvious at this time.
  • With the top OLED screen, the best pressure-sensitive touchpad (or one of them) for Windows notebooks, excellent performance release coupled with a thinner and lighter body design, and the first touchscreen notebook in Xiaomi’s history, it can be said that Xiaomi puts All that can be given to Xiaomi Book Pro 14 2022.
