Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop – the first gaming laptop from Xiaomi
The laptop was introduced in March 2018. Outwardly, he is very similar to his fellow pro-series, but the differences are significant.
In addition to a pleasant appearance and minimalist design, we note that the gadget can be used not only as a game but also as a working tool. For example, to process a photo or video. At the same time, the product remains quite budgetary. Note also the fact that Xiaomi Mi Game Laptop is released in two trim levels, but more on this we will stop later.
Design and ergonomics
The notebook differs from previous models in dark gray, almost black color. Another specific feature is the multi-colored three-level illumination of the island keyboard. The very same keyboard is recessed into the case – due to this, the dimensions of the laptop have been reduced. Also, the laptop allows you to simultaneously press up to 30 keys.
The fingerprint scanner on the touchpad, as it was on the pro, is not here. In general, the design and shape are very similar to the already familiar Air and Pro.
Port configuration is successful – they are located on both sides. There are all necessary and for all occasions.
The manufacturer says in the presentation about the new cooling system. On the case, there is a special “tornado” button – to turn on the rapid cooling of the iron, when necessary. I would like to note that the notebook itself is almost not heated.
