Xiaomi Tackles the MacBook Pro
« on: September 12, 2017, 12:18:59 pm »
Xiaomi (pronounced show-me) is a huge manufacturer of Smartphones and over a year ago they branched out into the laptop market. They did quite well with their first generation, but they are back with a new machines that is aimed squarely at the MacBook Pro. They have a lot of performance available in their 8th-Gen Quad-Core Intel CPU, GeForce graphics and an SSD. That is nothing new for an Ultrabook, but what Xiaomi does is add a bunch of ports that we all want. They have an SD Card slot, two USB-C ports, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, a headphone jack and more.

   Xiaomi's 1.95kg-heavy machine comes in three flavors: the 6,999 yuan (about $1,070) top model packs an i7-8550U chip with 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD; then there's a 6,399 yuan (about $980) model with an i7-8550U chip, 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD; and finally there's a 5,599 yuan (about $860) base model packing the same RAM and SSD but with a lower-end i5-8250U processor.Source: Engadget
