Mi Notebook 14 and Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition on Thursday, made their debut in India as Xiaomi’s first laptops in the country. Both laptops come with 10th-generation Intel Core processors and include optional Nvidia GeForce graphics.
The new addition to both these laptops has to be the Mi Blaze Unlock feature, which lets users unlock the system by placing a Mi Band 3 or Mi Band 4 near the laptop without having to put in the password.
The Mi Notebook 14 features a 14-inch full HD (1,920×1,080 pixels) display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The notebook runs on a 10th-generation Intel Core i5 processor, coupled with up to Nvidia GeForce MX250 graphics and 8GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 512GB of SATA SSD.
The thin bezels paved the path for the exclusion of the webcam in this notebook. The battery, Xiaomi claims, can offer up to 10 hours of usage on a single charge.
There are various points of similarity between the Mi Notebook 14 and the Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition. The 14 Horizon edition also features a 14-inch full-HD (1,920×1,080 pixels) anti-glare IPS display and comes with a screen-to-body ratio of 91 percent 60Hz refresh rate.
However, this edition notebook has 10th-generation Intel Core i5-10210U and Intel Core i7-10510U processor options, paired with onboard graphics or Nvidia GeForce MX350 GPU and 8GB of DDR4 RAM.
The notebook features 3mm bezels which again lead to the exclusion of a built-in webcam. However, Xiaomi is offering a bundled USB webcam with notebooks. Xiaomi has added a new feature for this notebook called the Mi Smart Share, which offers one of the fastest file transfers.
The laptop comes packed with a 46Wh battery that offers to deliver up to 10 hours of service on a single charge.
The Mi Notebook 14 price in India has been set at Rs. 41,999 for the base 256GB SSD model and the 512GB SSD model is priced at Rs. 44,999. The Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition starts at the price of Rs. 54,999. Both the Mi Notebook 14 and Mi Horizon Edition will go on sale from June 17 through Amazon, Mi.com, Mi Home stores, and Mi Studios.
