The company rolled out an updated variant with Kaby Lake chipsets and a fingerprint scanner, and Xiaomi is now setting its sights on the MacBook Pro with its latest laptop, the Mi Notebook Pro. Xiaomi has paid attention to details with the Mi Notebook Pro. That aside, it sports a minimalist design that looks like machined metal, though we can't say for sure. "The display is 15.6" with a resolution of 1920 x 1080. With aluminium alloy and magnesium alloy composition, the Mi Notebook Pro is both sturdy and light.

Powering the Mi Notebook Pro are Intel Kaby Lake processors, with customers able to choose from up to a Core i7-8550U or a Core i7-8650U paired with up to 16GB of RAM and up to a 256GB SSD.

It's been well over a year since Xiaomi released its first laptops (if you even remember at all), and for some reason, the smartphone maker has chose to make more. But Xiaomi has also launched yet another laptop that rivals Apple's Macbook line, known as the Mi Notebook Pro. In addition to this, the Mi Notebook Pro also features a 3-in-1 SD card slot, two USB Type-C ports, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a full-sized HDMI port, and two USB Type-A ports (USB 3.0 and USB 2.0). Any 15-inch "pro" laptop deserves a higher-res screen (even if it's something less than 4K), and you're going to notice the lack of pixels on a 1080p display that big. It is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on top. The keyboard is also precision designed by resizing keys for accurate typing. It also supports Microsoft Windows Hello.

Intel eight generation Intel Core i7 processor.

The Mi Notebook Pro will go on sale in China for ¥5,699 ($840) for the variant with the Core i5 and 8GB of RAM. The other two variants with Core i7 8GB RAM and Core i5 8GB RAM will be available for RMB 6,399 (or approx Rs 62,732) and RMB 5599 (or approx Rs 54,889).
