Processor & RAM: Variant 1 - Intel i5-6200U processor & 4 GB RAM; Variant 2 - Intel i7 Skylake processor & 8 GB RAM

Storage: Variant 1 – 256 GB & Variant 2 – 512 GB

Display: 13.3-inch IPS display

Weight: 1.29 KGs

Graphics Card: 2GB NVIDIA GT940MX

Sensors: Comes with fingerprint recognition (this feature is missing from Mi Notebook Air)

OS: Windows 10 



Overall Observation & Verdict

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air miss on fingerprint recognition feature however the laptop does have the ability to unlock via the Mi Band 2, enabled by the laptop's Bluetooth v4.1 connectivity. On other hand, Lenovo is much bigger & respected Brand in Laptop market. Fingerprint recognition is a huge USP and the pricing is also quite competitive. We would love to see other brands like Sony, Dell, HP catching up soon with their Air models in future. We do not know when this model will be launched in India but hoping they do so soon.
