Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air, A Windows MacBook Alternate
One of the reasons why I love Windows is the choice you have. There is plenty of variety when it comes to Windows-powered devices. You have the Microsoft Surface line if you want to go all fancy and expensive and you can go all the way down to as low as $400 laptops. The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air is a great example of what I am talking about.
Yes, it is named like a MacBook Air and the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air does look like one. So if you wanted a premium device that looks and feels like a MacBook but want windows then the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air would be the device for you.
The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air has the potential of being a Windows version of Macbook. The laptop is a premium device and it only costs $750. That is pretty low as compared to a similar Apple product. Plus the difference is not that much.
Key features of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air are as follows:
- Windows 10
- 13.3/ 12.5-inch
- slim body design
- 1080p display
- 1-megapixel webcam
- backlit keyboard
- USB Type-C charging port
- gold or silver
