Famously called the ‘Apple of China’, looks like Xiaomi is now out to prove that they can do everything that Apple can do. So far, Xiaomi has concentrated on the mobile market and gone ahead with a lineup of smartphones and tablets only. They have also come up with a few accessories such as air purifiers, power banks, LED lights, routers etc. However, they are now set to enter the big daddy market as the first set of images of the Xiaomi Laptop were leaked out.
Surprisingly, or maybe not, the laptop on the first viewing looks exactly like the Macbook Air which has become a signature of Apple. The laptop, according to the industry sources will be powered by the Intel Haswell i7-4500U processor and will have massive 16 GB of RAM. It is possible that the tablet will not run Windows, though you may be able to install that later on. Out of the box, the laptop will come with Mi’s own Operating System, which is most likely to be built on Linux.
From a hardware design point of view, there is an interesting orange button on the keyboard which can be customised as per the user requirement. There is also a Mi logo in orange on the front and a silver Mi logo on the back. The laptop also has a Full HD 15 inch panel and is expected to cost somewhere in the region of $481. There is no expected date yet for the launch of the laptop yet.
