With the start of the Mi Festival, we saw a bunch of deals and offers along with some new product launches. What caught our attention was the Mi Notebook Air. Based on the queries we received, I assume a lot of us were waiting for this device to launch. Now, both the Mi Notebook Air 13.3 and 12.5 are officially here in Nepal.

Mi Notebook Air is an ultrabook that looks sleek and aesthetics wise is similar to MacBook. The only thing that says it’s a Mi Notebook is the Mi branding on the front instead of the MacBook branding.  Ultrabooks are perfect for those needing a light and portable computers for their daily work. Among the two, the smaller 12.5inch Mi Notebook Air is the lighter one but the weight difference between the two isn’t that significant.

Mi Notebook Air 12.5

Mi Notebook Air 12.5, as the name suggests, comes with a 12.5 inch Full HD display(1080 x 1920) with the pixel density of 176ppi. The ultrabook weighs just 1.07kg with aluminum construct making it lighter than the Macbook Air.

It is running on Windows 10 Home Edition.

Conclusion

There is only a handful of Ultrabooks in Nepal and they are slightly pricier than the rest laptop bunch. Xiaomi Mi Notebooks looks great aesthetically and there’s no competition for its lightness. Specifically, the Mi Notebook Air 12.5 which weighs just 1.07Kg. But for the price of lightness, you are getting a fairly underpowered processor which might not be adequate if your work needs a little more power.

The Mi Notebook 13.3 is also a pretty good pick but if you look elsewhere then the Dell XPS 13 can be a great alternative or you can just get the Apple MacBook 13.3 Air.

All and all these notebooks were targeted for the people who want a lighter computer for their daily commute without breaking their back carrying a hefty laptop. Xiaomi Mi Notebooks can be a perfect pick for anyone who has to travel and work.
