The Macbook Air is one of the best looking, slimmest laptops on the market today. It is also one of the most popular, so it makes sense a competing like Xiaomi company is releasing its own copy.
The Xiaomi laptop will come in two forms: a version with an 11-inch display and another with a 13-inch display. This device is virtually portless from what we can tell, with the only exception being a single USB Type-C port.
The Xiami laptop is rumored to launch with an Atom processor, but this isn’t the case unless Xiaomi is planning a cheaper model to accompany higher end devices. Leaked information claims the Xiaomi Macbook Air clone might come with a Skylake i7 processor with 2 cores, running at 2.50GHz and boasting a Turbo speed of 3.10GHz. The same information also alleges 8GB of RAM. Furthermore, these laptops will be powered by Windows 10, but don’t expect a touchscreen here. Some might view this as a downside, but we’re cool with the traditional take as long as the price is just right.
At the end of the day, we hope the product isn’t an exact clone of the Apple Macbook Air and that it’s affordable, seeing as this is coming from a Chinese company hoping to have comparable success in the PC market as it did with its mobile ambitions.
This is not the first time Xiaomi has decided to jump into the world of Windows. The company’s Mi 5 Android smartphone is destined for a Windows 10 Mobile variant, but there’s no word on when we should expect to see it. Furthermore, the company released the Mi 4 Windows 10 Mobile variant back in 2015.
