The Chinese tech giant Xiaomi today, for the first time, introduced a range of notebooks in the Indian market. Where the Mi NoteBook 14 Horizon Edition is the brand’s flagship laptop, as of now, the Mi NoteBook is a toned-down version of the same.
Both the laptops feature anti-glare FHD LCD panels with a 16:9 aspect ratio. Where the Horizon Edition gets slimmer 3mm bezels, the vanilla NoteBook 14 comes with slightly larger bezels in comparison. Both the machines miss out on a dedicated webcam, which is why the company is including Mi Webcam HD with every Mi NoteBook 14 inside the box.
The standard NoteBook 14, under the hood, gets a 10th gen Intel core i5-10210U CPU and a choice between Intel’s UHD 620 or Nvidia’s GeForce MX250 GPU. The Horizon Edition, on the other hand, comes powered with a Core i7-10510U option paired with an Nvidia GeForce MX350 GPU. Both the machines feature 8GB DDR4 RAM and 256/512GB SATA SSDs, along with bottom-firing stereo speakers and a convenient single finger lid opening design.
As far as the ports are concerned, both laptops feature two USB 3.1 ports along with single USB 2.0, a headphone jack, HDMI, Type-C ports, and, of course, a charging port. Both laptops are backed up by a 46Wh battery, which the company says can last up to 10 hours on a single charge. The company also says that the in-box 65W charger can fast charge the NoteBook 14’s up to 50% in just half an hour.
The Mi NoteBook 14 price in India starts at ₹41,999 for the baseline 256GB variant going all the way up to ₹44,999 for the 512GB variant. The Mi NoteBook 14 with GeForce MX 250 is priced at ₹47,999. The Mi NoteBook 14 Horizon Edition price in India starts at ₹54,999 for the base Core i5 trim going all the way up to ₹59,999 for the Core i7 variant. Both the laptops will go on sale starting June 17 on major e-commerce platforms as well as offline outlets.
