Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air was launched in August last year in the company's home market China. This notebook is a real challenger to the iPad Air as it has stunning hardware specs and a sleek design.
Xiaomi has now released a new upgraded version of the device with a few improvements. The new Mi Notebook Air 13.3 comes with a 4G LTE modem in it and the seventh-gen Intel Core i7 processor. This one is said to provide 10% improvement in the performance. It also comes in another version with the upgraded seventh generation Core i5 processor. The 12.5-inch model of the Mi Notebook Air has the seventh-gen Intel Core M3 processor. This processor is said to offer 12% performance improvement in comparison to the previous generation Core M3 processor.
Apart from the innards, the other upgrade that is a notable addition is the inclusion of the fingerprint recognition technology in the latest edition. The fingerprint sensor is added to the upper right corner of the trackpad.
Under its hood, the Mi Notebook Air comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB PCle SSD hard drive that can further be expanded. It has custom AKG speakers too like the yesteryear models. The latest and upgraded Mi Notebook Air comes with inbuilt NVIDIA GeForce MX150 graphics card and up to 2GB GDDR5 memory standard.
