Xiaomi Laptops. Something as simple as that, a simple Xiaomi laptop, is what many of us have wanted for years. High-end laptops at laughably low prices, but how easy (or hard) was it to get one of them?
The Xiaomi laptop, or Xiaomi laptops in general, broke the market from the first moment they went on sale and began to become popular worldwide. The value for money they offered in terms of features, design and versatility was unbeatable, and still is to this day. They are often compared to Apple Macbooks for their quality, but at a fraction of the price.
– SYSTEM AND KEYBOARD ADAPTED TO THE SELECTED LANGUAGE –Buying a Xiaomi laptop was an almost impossible task. First they were in Chinese, then they took a month to arrive.
Even more complex was if you wanted a Xiaomi Laptop from Europe with warranty. It was also impossible to get a laptop in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian or Portuguese.
You've noticed that I was speaking in the past tense so far, right? Welcome to the present. Finally, Xiaomi laptops arrive worldwide from Xiaomi Home, the only official Xiaomi store with worlwide reach to sell the prestigious Xiaomi laptops with warranty.
Shipping from Europe to Europe or from Factory to Worldwide. Adapted to English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian or Portuguese, both in terms of system and keyboard. To understand 100% this process, read on.
Xiaomi laptop: its arrival all over the world
Finally, the day had arrived. Xiaomi laptops arrived on the world market without you having to take any risk. Now, you can take your Xiaomi laptop, with delivery in 3-7 working days, or you can also opt for the option from the factory, with delivery in 2-4 weeks.
This second option sometimes allows big savings over the delivery option from Spain. If you're not in a hurry, then that's what you get and even cheaper.
Both delivery options for your Xiaomi laptop come with an "all-inclusive". Nothing else changes apart from the delivery time. You will never have to pay customs, you will always have your 1 year warranty at no cost to you.
Xiaomi laptops: what about the keyboard?The Xiaomi laptop you will receive, either with shipment from Europe to Europe or from Factory to Worldwide, will be adapted to the language chosen by you (English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian or Portuguese), both system and keyboard. How do we do it? We have three different solutions:
One is to add a professional sticker that we incorporate for free on all Xiaomi laptops. It is barely visible. In fact, if you didn't know it was there, you wouldn't even see it.
The second option, when available, also includes a free keyboard cover in the selected language. What is this? Well, it is very thin silicone sleeve that you put on top of the keyboard. It is near invisible once it is on. It instantly converts ALL keys to the chosen language. And t also keeps the inside of your Xiaomi laptop clean, preventing dirt falling to the key holes.
Here are some pictures so you can see how visible and how good it looks:
The third and last option is that basically, if you are already used to typing without looking at the keyboard, do nothing. The keys will ALL be set to English, so they will be there where they have always been, and you don't really need to do anything else. So, that said, up to you guys and girls! More info here.
Book Pro 14 and Book Pro 16: Xiaomi laptops worldwide
We are here in front of the two most recent laptops of the entire Xiaomi line. Part of the Book Pro line, revolutionary for its OLED touchscreens and state-of-the-art processors.
Protagonists of a great evolution for its innovative OLED touch screens, with a wide color scale and better brightness than any other laptop. Also with the inclusion of the latest version of AMD's AM4 chip (Ryzen 6000U) or the newest Intel, generation 12 (Alder Lake).
Moving on to the display, the Book Pro 14 features a 14″ inch Super Retina OLED touchscreen display in 2.8K resolution, while the Book Pro 16 has the same display but at 16″ inches and in 4K resolution. Yes, this is the first Xiaomi laptop to feature a 4K display, the most premium personal use resolution.
The smaller Book Pro 14 has 5 versions, 3 with Intel processors and 2 with AMD Ryzen. In the case of Intel, there is the i5-1240P option, either with Intel Iris Xe graphics or an integrated NVIDIA GeForce MX550 GPU, and the i7-1260P option, which has a powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 graphics card.
For the Ryzen versions the difference is found only in the processor, as the graphics will always be the reliable AMD Integrated Graphics. The first option has a Ryzen 6600H, while the other comes with a 6800H, which is significantly faster.
On the other hand, the larger Book Pro 16 (which, let's remember, comes with 4K and a larger screen) only offers, for the moment, Intel options. The first option again brings the i5-1240P but only with Intel Iris Xe graphics, while the second option (it is worth clarifying that it is the best performing Book Pro) features an i7-1260P and only the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 GPU.
Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro: Xiaomi laptopsThe arrival worldwide of Xiaomi laptops implies, more concretely, the arrival of all its flagship and company. For example, the well-known laptop Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, which just in March 2021 launched its new versions.
Both the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 15 (2021) Laptop and the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 14 (2021) Laptop were launched. Being the latter, a new measure that surprised us all, and that can be very useful for those who need that extra mobility and comfort, but always with the highest performance of a Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro Xiaomi.
Regarding the latter, if we look at Google searches, it is funny to see how people search for it, with a wide variety of names. Here are some of them: xiaomi pro laptop, xiaomi mi pro laptop, xiaomi notebook pro, xiaomi mi notebook pro, xiaomi laptop pro, etc.
And it is normal, because, despite its huge fame, the fact that Xiaomi laptops had never before reached the world market officially, always gave rise to confusion. In the absence of reliable data directly from the manufacturer, having to look and rely on unofficial websites, at best, but in Chinese.
Xiaomi Redmibook Laptop: the new line of best sellersThat's right, the new Xiaomi Redmibook laptops, launched from Xiaomi's Redmi sub-branch, have been taking all the limelight for some time now, and they deserve it.
This is a very well thought-out type of Xiaomi laptop, as all its models have a perfect balance of features and materials. They have prices that are lower than those of the rest of Xiaomi laptops.
When talking about size, the Redmibook line has the largest options in this regard. It ranges from the 16.1" of the Redmibook 16 to 13" of the Redmibook 13 and the Xiaomi Redmibook Air 13, through Xiaomi Redmibook 14, the successor of the latter, the Xiaomi Redmibook 14 II or the Redmibook 14 Pro (2021) and Redmibook 15 Pro (2021) launched in March 2021.
All other Xiaomi laptops, to date, are 15.6" (Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 15, Xiaomi Redmi G, etc.), the most common size on the market, with the exception of the older Xiaomi Mi Air 13 and Xiaomi Mi Air 12.5 or the new Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 14, launched in March 2021.
Xiaomi laptops manage to meet the needs of a very wide audience, with options that fit every user profile. Let's take a look at them:
Redmibook Air 13: Xiaomi laptops worldwide
This updated version is very, VERY thin. It weighs 1.05kg and has a thickness of 12.99mm, something amazing. With a battery that reaches 11.5 hours of use, and a 2.5K screen.
It is the ideal companion for any professional or student who travels constantly. They can use their work companion (yes, the Xiaomi laptop) during these journeys. Whether by train, bus, plane, or while waiting for any of the above.
Redmibook 14 Pro (2021) and Redmibook 15 Pro (2021): Xiaomi Laptops worldwide
The Xiaomi Redmibook 14 Pro and Redmibook 15 Pro laptops. I can already tell you: they are the absolute stars of the moment. Launched in March 2021, right now they have no competitor, not even among the Xiaomi laptops themselves.
It is true that they are somewhat more expensive, but the difference in performance far outweighs the difference in price. So if you need a high-power and high-end computer, in every way, with no margin for error, this is yours.
The most powerful next-generation processors, 2.5K (for the 14 Pro) and 3.2K (for the 15 Pro) Super Retina displays. Backlit keyboard. Fingerprint unlocking. And both over 1.5kg.
Both feature 5 versions, one with Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics with Intel i5, two others with NVIDIA GeForce MX450 2GB integrated graphics, both on Intel i5 and i7. And, as a novelty, two more with Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 processors and AMD Radeon Graphics integrated graphics.
It should be noted that the Xiaomi Redmibook 15 Pro laptop is slightly superior to the 14 Pro, since it has a little more space, the class of processors is superior, the screen is slightly better, and something else, but on a minimal scale.
Redmibook 14 Pro (2022) and Redmibook 15 Pro (2022):Xiaomi Laptops worldwide
The new versions of the Redmibook series introduced power improvements over their predecessors. Those Redmibooks are becoming Xiaomi's most popular and best-selling laptops. They fit everything the average user needs, at a comically low price, with excellent features, design and mobility.
Another new feature is the inclusion of versions with AMD's innovative Ryzen processors. Let's see what the new flagships of the Redmibook range bring.
The 14 Pro comes with 5 versions, 3 with Intel and 2 with Ryzen.
For the blue team, we have two versions that bring the latest generation i5-12450H processor, one with Intel Iris Xe graphics while the other with the powerful NVIDIA GeForce MX550 integrated graphics, present in Xiaomi's 2022 range. The more powerful version uses the aforementioned MX550, but with a faster i7-12650H processor.
For both offerings of the red team we find the AMD Integrated Graphics, either with the Ryzen 5 6600H or the more powerful Ryzen 7 6800H. Needless to say, these versions have the cheapest offers of the entire Redmibook line.
The 15 Pro comes in 7 versions, 3 with Intel and 4 with Ryzen.
The Intel options are similar to those of the 14 Pro: two i5-12450H versions, one with Intel Iris Xe graphics but the other with the powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 dedicated graphics designed for gaming. The version with the top-end i7-12650H processor is only available with the aforementioned RTX 2050, making it the fastest Redmibook so far along with the top-of-the-line Ryzen we'll mention below.
About them, we have the same two propositions as the 14 Pro, AMD Integrated Graphics with the Ryzen 5 6600H or the more powerful Ryzen 7 6800H. But, in a turn towards better proposals, Xiaomi added two more options with those two Ryzen processors: both have the powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050.
The version with the Ryzen 5 6600H and the RTX 2050 is a good intermediate option, with great graphics power and a mid-range processor, enough for most modern video games.
Now, if what you're interested in is better overall performance for your gaming sessions, you'll have to buy the option of that RTX 2050 with the i7 or Ryzen 7, the two most powerful Redmibook laptops to date.
Mi Notebook Pro 15 (2021): Xiaomi Laptop worldwide
If there is a Xiaomi laptop that is "THE" Xiaomi laptop, it is the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro.
The thing is, in the case of the Xiaomi Redmibook 15 Pro laptop we are already talking about a 3.2K Super Retina, which is impressive. Now, with the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 15 (2021) laptop, we have a 3.5k OLED. 600 nits. 261 PPI. Corning Gorilla Glass, and so on. Something never seen before.
Also, we suspect that beyond what the data sheet says, there must be something else that sets it apart. But on paper, that's all there is. So you decide: can you afford it? No doubt about it, this one. Is the screen quality top for you? Also this one. None of the above? Then a Redmibook.
Mi Notebook Pro X 15: Xiaomi Laptop worldwide
With this new version of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, the top model among all Xiaomi laptops, is how Xiaomi seeks to set the trend in the field of ultrabooks, with some of the most advanced features seen so far in a laptop of this type, so thin and weighting just 1.9kg.
The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021) has an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, with 4GB of video memory, our best offer aside from the very powerful RTX 3060 of the Redmi G. The biggest difference with that laptop is that our Pro X 15 is a much more practical laptop: not as heavy and with better battery capacity and ergonomics.
I can talk about the 15.6" OLED Super Retina display on 3.5K resolution, or the 32GB of DDR4 4266MHz RAM memory, the 11.5 hour lasting battery and many more for hours. The Pro X 15 is the fastest Xiaomi aside from the Gaming line. It comes in such a stylish package that we can say that this is Xiaomi's ultimate laptop.
Mi Notebook Pro 14: Xiaomi Laptop worldwide
If you want a 14 inch laptop, this is one of the best option you can have. The same question as with the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 15 and Redmibook 15 Pro arises: is this enough to justify its price premium?
Both laptops offer Intel i5 and i7 processors, but the Mi has a processor from Intel's H class, notably more powerful than the Redmibook 14 Pro's G class. Besides, the price difference between the 14s is not as steep as the 15s.
Mi Notebook Pro X 14: Xiaomi Laptop worldwideIf we told you that the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 14 is one of the best 14 inch options in the business, that's because the Pro X 14 is THE best option within the range.
This laptop is basically an improved, more powerful version of the Pro 14. It's less powerful twin has a fairly standard 2GB NVIDIA GeForce MX450 GPU, the Pro X 14 sports a powerful 4GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050. With such graphics card you can play most, if not all new games, in mid to high settings.
Well, true to the 14's tradition, the Pro X 14 manages to keep a sleek, lightweight and easy to carry design. With a small 14-inch 2.5K screen, a thickness of just 16,5 mm and a weight of 1,6 kg this laptop is much more practical than the Pro 15 or even the Redmibook 15 Pro. If you want a practical but very powerful laptop, this the best we can offer.
Redmi G: Xiaomi Laptop worldwideThis laptop is a very interesting proposal among Xiaomi laptops, with an interesting gaming design that features a backlit keyboard, big fans and a stylish cover. With a powerful processor and a more powerful GPU, this power intensive laptop is great for gaming.
The rugged, aggresive style is setup in a way for Xiaomi to install all the power inside. Given that we expect you to play your favorite news games with it, Xiaomi has to make the laptop big. It has massive fans that keep it very cool.
The all-powerful Redmi G is a big statement by the folks at Xiaomi: sporting a very fast NVIDIA GeForce GTX 3060 GPU you can play any new game in high to ultra settings. A graphics card of this kind will give you access to the best, most realistic games.
The processor options, a i5 and a Ryzen 7 can make this a true battlestation: video editing, gaming, rendering, etc. You can open as much programs as you'd like with this laptop: it won't slow down.
You'll be hard pressed to find many Xiaomi laptops (or any other laptop) as powerful as this one for a better price.
Redmi G (2022): Xiaomi Laptop worldwide
The newest and fastest in Xiaomi's Gaming class, the Redmi G brings innovations in display, processor, graphics card, design and cooling. Competing with gaming laptops from giants Asus or Gigabyte but at a better price, Xiaomi is emerging as a great choice for gamers around the world.
With a 165Hz display (i.e. capable of displaying 165 FPS) ideal for competitive gaming, the fluidity and quality of this panel is the highest in the entire Xiaomi range, far surpassing the previous 144Hz of the old Xiaomi Gaming range.
Following the future, the Redmi G is only offered with graphics cards with Ray Tracing and NVIDIA DLSS technologies, the new standard set by NVIDIA for graphics processing. Capable of better reflecting light to give a more realistic image quality, this type of "NVIDIA RTX" graphics cards are the most powerful in the world.
As for the processor, there are only offers with 12th generation Intel processors, the latest and most powerful so far.
The laptop comes in three versions. One with an Intel i5-12450H processor and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 dedicated graphics card. The other two versions both feature the Intel i7-12650H processor, considerably faster than the i5.
The latter two come with either the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 or the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti dedicated graphics. The "Ti" version is the best of the entire Xiaomi gaming lineup so far, making it the most powerful of all our laptops.
Xiaomi Laptop: conclusion
What we like most about the Xiaomi laptops is their high power and modern designs. Thin margins and premium all-metal finishes. With very comfortable sizes that make them very flexible to carry.
In turn, the incredible battery of all Xiaomi laptops cannot be overlooked. The average battery life is 12 hours of use. They charge 50% of their batteries in 30-35 minutes, thanks to their ultra-fast charging systems.
In terms of power, in 95% of cases, Xiaomi laptops feature high-end CPUs. Combining between Intel i5 and i7, and Ryzen 5 and 7. With speeds of up to 4.8GHz among the newer CPUs. High power and speed are common trends among Xiaomi laptops.
With powerful GPUs such as the NVIDA GeForce RTX 2050, NVIDA GeForce RTX 3050, NVIDA GeForce RTX 3050Ti, among others. Our gaming laptops have graphics cards with up to 6GB of video memory.
Finally, the best part about Xiaomi laptops is clearly the price-quality ratio. The finish, materials and performance of the Xiaomi laptops are great for the price. There is no other laptop on the market that offers so much quality for so little.
