At Mi Mix 2S launch event at Shanghai, Chinese giant Xiaomi revealed their first-ever gaming laptop. The Mi Gaming Laptop sports a clean, brushed aluminum finish and measures 20.9mm at its thickest point. Like every other gamer-oriented product, Xiaomi has added RGB lighting to four different zones around the laptop’s body. The keyboard also has its own RGB lighting and comes with features like 30-key rollover and five programmable keys.
The Mi Gaming Laptop features a 15.6-inch Full HD panel with a 72% color gamut and slim 9.9mm bezels. In terms of connectivity options, the Mi Gaming laptop provides users with four high-speed USB 3.0 ports, two USB-C ports, an HDMI port, and a 3.5mm jack with its own high-powered amp. Equipped with stereo 3W speakers, the laptop has also earned the Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Audio certifications.
As a gaming laptop cooling is very important, Xiaomi has implemented their own 3+2 design for the heatpipes and four air exhausts with two fans to provide active cooling. Under the hood, the Mi Gaming laptop is powered by Intel’s latest Kaby Lake Core i7-7700HQ processor and it’s available in two versions. The base version carries a $960 price tag and comes with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, 8GB of memory, a 128GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive. The high-end version goes for $1,440 and boasts an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060, 16GB of memory, a 256GB NVMe SSD, and a 1TB hard drive. The Mi Gaming Laptop will go on sale in China from April 13.
