4) Mi Notebook Pro X 15 RAM memory
This time, Xiaomi has gone all-in: the least powerful version comes with 16GB of RAM. The more powerful version comes with 32GB of RAM. Both dual-channel LPDDR4X clocked at 4266 MHz. There is a big increase of speed compared to the previous 2666 MHz Xiaomi laptops.

Very important to note is that we’re talking about ultra-fast SSD storage, which is becoming more common among mid and high tier computers and, of course, is present in every single Xiaomi laptop. As far as we know, it is not expandable.
6) Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021) design
This is a field where all Xiaomi laptops, especially those launched more recently, stand out enormously. Let’s be clear: if you start looking, you will find another laptop with similar specifications at a technical level. Now, when you ask these ones:
- Have a “transportable” weight (living up to its “portable” name).
- An elegant, slim, professional, minimalist, subtle design (can you tell I like its design? I’ll stop now, sorry!).
- And that it is constructed of premium materials (all metal).
All this “put together” in the clean and organized way of Xiaomi laptops, you can go quietly at prices ranging from double that of Xiaomi laptops, up to 3-4 times more, being their close cousins the Apple MacBook.
And even so, you will never be able to count on the reliability and confidence that what you have in your hands is a Xiaomi laptop. There’s a reason why their smartphones have become number 1 in sales Europe since their arrival, right? Well now take that, and apply it to their laptops. That said, let’s get down to business.
It has a clean and modern finish, made of pure metal to keep the equipment cool at all times. This makes it resistant to bumps, drops and scratches. The Xiaomi Redmibook 15 Pro Laptop also features a 15.6-inch screen. The difference lies in the thin screen margins, with an excellent screen-to-space ratio. Making the most of the available space and improving its appearance.
7) Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021) screen
Indeed this is the most important aspect of our beloved Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021), the screen display. Despite only being on the market for about 1 month (as of 07/2021), it has already been called by many “the best screen ever seen on a laptop.”
Xiaomi’s Redmibook 15 Pro has an incredible Super Retina display with 3.2K resolution. If that wasn’t enough, the company has decided to improve upon its milestone. This Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021) comes with a 15.6″ 3.5K OLED Super Retina display. Made with the uber resistent Corning Gorilla Glass.
And not only that, it has a brightness of 600 nits. The 3.5K resolution is exactly 3456 x 2160, which gives us a PPI of 261 dots. In addition to a screen-to-body ratio of 93%, the highest seen on a Xiaomi laptop, and probably among the best worldwide, with 3.6mm bezels.
It boasts a contrast ratio of, mind you, 1,000,000:1 with up to 1.07 billion colors and 100% DCI-P3 with a screen ratio of 16:10. In fact, it has many top quality certifications, some of which we didn’t even know about.
All of them basically honor the extreme quality of the screen, the realism and breadth of its colors, and provides a safe display for our eyes when using it for long periods of time. Finally, it presents a viewing angle of 170º and Delta E ≈ 1 (typical value).
7.1) Brief comparison of Xiaomi notebook displays
As far as screen size is concerned (and consequently, the size of the entire laptop itself), the Redmibook line has the widest range of options in this regard. It ranges from 16.1″ to 13″, between the models Redmibook 13, Redmibook Air 13, Redmibook 14, the successor of the latter, the Redmibook 14 II., or the new Redmibook 14 Pro and Redmibook 15 Pro, launched in March 2021.
The rest of Xiaomi laptops, to date, are 15.6″ (Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15, Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 15, Xiaomi Mi Gaming, Xiaomi Redmi G Gaming, etc.), the most common size in the market, except for the old Xiaomi Mi Air 13 and Xiaomi Mi Air 12.5, or the new Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 14, launched in March 2021.
This is unusual among Mi Notebook Pro laptops, which were always offered with 15.6″ screens. This is a more portable alternative for Xiaomi laptops‘ users, as the 14″ option really makes the difference and makes it a very light and comfortable laptop to carry.
8) Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021) battery
One of the highlights of the Mi Notebook range, and of all the latest generation of Xiaomi laptops, is its huge battery life. The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021) is vastly superior to all others in that it has an 80Wh battery that can last up to 18 HOURS.
According to Xiaomi, this is exactly what it says: local video playback for 18 hours, beating the old Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 2020 Enhanced Edition, which reaches 17 hours with a 60Mhw battery, meaning that the Mi Notebook Pro X 15 has the best battery life we have seen in a Xiaomi laptop so far.
And if that’s not enough, it features an ultra-fast Thunderbolt 4 type 1C (or USB-C) charging port. This will allow you to charge your Xiaomi laptop up to 50% in just 25 minutes.
In short: you’re not going to run out of juice with this Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021).
9) Connectivity and peripherals
The laptop comes with a Intel 2 x 2 WiFi card that supports 802.11ax (WiFi 6), 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz in dual-band, with a theorical top speed of 2.4Gbps and with Bluetooth 5.2 wireless technology. It has the following ports:
- Multi-function USB-C: multi-functional interface with ultra-fast data transmission, support for charging, video output, etc.
- Thunderbolt 4: ultra-fast charging
- HDMI 2.1
- 2 USB-A (USB 3.2 Gen 2)
- 1 Minijack
Moving on to the keyboard, it features a full-size layout with a 1.5mm keystroke. As for the trackpad or touchpad, it is 6″ inches (exactly 125mm x 81.6mm).
As for the rest, it supports multi-finger gesture control. It allowing us to do things like swipe up and down on the screen. A couple of interesting details are the backlit keyboard and fingerprint unlocking.
Finally, a very recent and modern aspect that the Mi Notebook includes are wearables, such as a smartwatch, a Xiaomi Mi Band, your smartphone, etc. Basically, you can link them to your Mi Notebook and if you get close, it unlocks without the need to enter the password, and if you move away, it locks automatically. Something very useful, smart and cool (uh, how many cool words). We can see it in action in the following video:
10) Camera and audio
Finally Xiaomi has put some common sense in this field, and has equipped their new laptops with cameras. No other Redmibook to date had a camera, something so necessary now that half of us work from home. Fortunately, the latest Redmibooks released, the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro 15 (2021) and the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021), all feature a camera again.
As for the audio, the speaker comes from Dolby with high quality DTS-dimensional immersive sound system with 2W x 2.
11) Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021) accessories
Accessories to finish completing your perfect kit for the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021):
- Mouse: Do you need one? Yes. Maybe you already have one around the house? Also, but… Is it as cool as the new Xiaomi Mi Dual Mode Wireless Mouse (Silent Edition)? Surely not, and it sure doesn’t have all its features either, so forget about crappy mice and complete the kit to match the gear you’re getting.
- Case: I won’t repeat myself, but yes, you need one, and a real one, not because it’s “cool”. You’ll see how funny it will be when you drop your laptop and charge it. And it fits exactly the size of the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro X 15 (2021).
- Laptop stand: this is my favorite, because yes, it’s there for more than just making you look more professional. It saves you from endless neck and back pain. Since the day I bought one out of curiosity, I have never been able to work without it again. 100% useful and necessary, and totally portable, look at the pictures and you’ll see!
