The Chinese company Xiaomi has been producing its own notebooks since 2016, producing four different classes for two years: a 12-inch “typewriter”, a 13-inch ultrabook with discrete graphics, a 15-inch Pro version, and a full-fledged gaming notebook. Unfortunately, for two years they were officially sold only in China. In other countries, they could only be bought from “gray” sellers, but from June 28 Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13 officially went on sale in Europe.
The international debut took place in Spanish Madrid, where Xiaomi has so far four official stores. You can also buy a laptop in Barcelona. In addition to official stores, it can be purchased at the online store and from local retailers. The price is 900 euros, which is much more expensive than the Chinese price of $ 750.
Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air 13 received modern and uncompromising characteristics. The base was Intel Core i7 and Core i5 processors of the 8th generation, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD. There is also a discrete graphics card NVIDIA GeForce MX150 with 2 GB of video memory. Xiaomi also worked on the design – the case of the laptop is made of metal and has a thickness of 14.8 mm, and the weight was 1.3 kg.
Information on the start of official sales in Russia yet, however, we can assume that after the European start the turn will reach Russia, which is one of the most important markets for Xiaomi.
Recall that in May 2017, some Russian media spread the rumor that Russia will soon begin selling laptops and TVs Xiaomi, but this did not happen. The editions argued their arguments by the fact that the devices appeared on the shelves of some official Xiaomi stores marked “soon on sale.” Laptops really were on the shelves and stood there for six months, but sales never began. In 2018, laptops were removed from the flagship store Xiaomi in Moscow on Tverskaya.
