Have you ever wanted to have a super cool computer that can match Apple’s design? There is now a cool computer out from Xiaomi. With a MacBook laptop look but for a cheaper price! It’s called the Xiaomi Air 12.
It’s having a 12.5 inch IPS screen with 1080p resolution, processor is Intel Core m3-6Y30 Dual-Core, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 128 GB SSD for fast speed, AKG speaker, Front facing camera, Bluetooth 4.1 and HDMI! It’s running on Microsoft Windows 10 Home OS. It also comes with a USB Type-C port which is ten times faster than USB 2.0!
The battery in Xiaomi Air 12 is 7.4V/5000mAh 37Wh that supports fast charging! The front facing camera is a bit low in resolution only 1.0MP available. It also is a pretty light full metal body laptop. Weight is 1.07kg. And it’s only 12.9mm thin. And the display has Edge-to-edge protective glass. On the side it also has a 3.5mm headphone jack!
Something that has been annoying me with the current laptops is many feels very much plasticky. Not the premium feel that Apple has been able to give. But it now seems like there is a strong competitor out on the market that will challenge Apple’s MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers!
I am currently using a slim Macbook Pro and an Acer Predator laptop as my two main computers. And something that annoys me with the laptop is how it’s three times as large and heavy. It’s good that Apple is getting some serious competition on the market. With this laptop costing around half the price of what the OLED iPhone 8 will cost!
I am curious to see how it will perform in heavy tasks as rendering videos. If the intel core processor can challenge the more pricy MacBook Air. Of course Apple has more optimised software because they both design their hardware and software to work together. Do you like the design of this computer? Would you like more ports?
