Xiaomi has announced a competitor to the MacBook Pro

If that wasn't enough, the Mi Notebook Pro will also borrow elements from popular smart devices, which in this case translates into the inclusion of a fingerprint sensor built into the laptop's precision trackpad.

Xiaomi's Mi Notebook Pro comes out into the markets with a 15.6 inched display which is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The company had launched its Notebook Air laptops in China only, so we could expect that the new Notebook Pro from Xiaomi will only be available in China initially then the company will make it available for other nations of the world.

Last year, Xiaomi finally made its entry into the laptop market with the announcement of the Mi Notebook Air, which was created to be a rival to Apple's MacBook. The laptop offers the users with a bright and vivid array of colors as well.

Ports: full-sized HDMI port, two USB Type-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack and a 3-in-1 SD card slot. Although the screen could have been better - and we say that on the basis of specs on the paper - the Mi Notebook Pro looks like a very fine laptop. All three supposedly have 256GB SSD as internal storage. This new keyboard is 19% larger than the original MacBook Pro.

As for the pricing, the Notebook Pro is obviously going to be more expensive than its predecessor, with the cheapest option starting from 5599 RMB ($858).

Product dimensions are 360,7 × 234,6 × 15.9 mm, weight - 1,95 kg.

The base variant of the Mi Notebook Pro has been priced at 5699 yuan (Rs.55,800 approx.), while the top end version with the Core i7 processor and 16GB RAM is priced at 6999 yuan (Rs.68,600 approx.).

Both 5GHz and 2.4GHz band (2×2) WIFI 802.11ac is available. The speakers sport Harman Infinity tag. Standard graphics include integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620, while users that require a bit more power can opt for an NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Those interested in Xiaomi's line of Apple alternatives may consider checking out their official website. As far as availability goes, details are scant, but it will be available in China soon. The same presumably holds true for the model with the current-generation Intel Core i5 CPU and 8GB of RAM, with this particular hardware still putting the Mi Notebook Pro on par with the majority of Microsoft's Surface lineup.
