Lenovo sees Xiaomi coming like a heat seeking missile from its radar, so it makes sense for the company to release a device that will rival what its Chinese competitor is planning to drop on the market. The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air is quite the looker, and with the decent enough specs, it will certainly find a market in China.

Lenovo appears to know this, which could be why the company has released Air 13 in the same country. It’s a lightweight device that took cues from Apple’s Macbook Air design. The internal specifications are on point, and the price is also quite affordable. With its 2GB Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphic card, the Lenovo 13 Air will blow through some games, but struggle on others.

The device sports a 13.3-inch IPS display that is full HD, according to The Times of India. The processor here, is an Intel Skylake Core i5 beast, but if you want, it’s possible to grab the Core i7 model as well. When it comes down to the RAM, we understand the machine comes with 4GB, though we cannot say if this is upgradable.

In terms of storage, this bad boy is home to 256GB worth of SSD, so expect it to be super fast. Now, this is a machine that will set you back a cool $750. That’s the same price as the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air, but there’s a slight problem. You see, the Mi Notebook Air has the same specifications as the Lenovo 13 Air, but the Xiaomi comes with 8GB of RAM instead of 4GB.

We do like these machines, but there’s no word if they will be sold outside of Asia. We may very well have to scour eBay to get our hands on one of these.
