Well, the Chinese maker Xiaomi is great at copying everything and this time they have copied the name of a famous laptop by Apple. The new laptop by the Chinese company is called Xiaomi Notebook Air that comes with an Intel Core i5 processor inside. In terms of design, the laptop is similar to the Mi Notebook Air powered by Intel Core M3 processor. Both have a 12.5-inch display.

Xiaomi Notebook Air Price
The Xiaomi Notebook Air has been launched in China for CNY 3,999 and is yet to be launched in India. If it launches in India it would probably cost Rs 40,500 approximately as that is the Indian currency equivalent of this Chinese product. It is up for pre-sale in Mi.com and JD.com. Only one colour option is available and that is silver. Customers can pre-order the gadget by paying CNY 100.
Now what is left for us to see is when would it be launched in India. If they do, will they be able to capture the market in the laptop segment just like they were able to in the mobile world, is something only time will tell. As of now there is no news on its official launch in India.
