I think many people will have heard of the product before the release of “Mi Notebook Air”. Aside from the product itself, again we see Xiaomi adopting new product categories from the technology industry. As a consumer like everyone else, I would rather choose a product of sufficient quality than a well-known brand. Today, I want to share the disassembly process of the two versions of Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air.
12.5-inch Mi laptop air
First, let’s look at some details of the 12.5-inch version. The internal structure of this laptop is very compact. They base it on the Intel Core M3 processor, which makes the passive cooling system save a lot of space.
Besides, we can see that the 12.5-inch Mi Notebook Air has a shaped battery design. The speakers are on the side. At the center of the motherboard is the Intel Core M3 processor. It is worth mentioning that this notebook computer has a self-powered M.2 SSD interface.
Compared to the 13.3-inch version, the 12.5-inch version is smaller and weighs 1.07 kg. The device is easy to transport and place and good for office users and business travelers.
13.3-inch Mi laptop air
The 13.3-inch version is more powerful than the 12.5-inch version. This laptop comes in brass and dual-fan cooling configuration with an air outlet in the hinge. In fact, for such a thin and light notebook computer. Although the place of the socket may not be conducive to heat dissipation. This may be a unique and good solution.
Besides, the 13.3-inch version also equipped with a Samsung 256G SSD. Besides, it provides users with an additional reserved SATA M.2 SSD interface, it can update which.
As for the 13.3-inch Mi Notebook Air gaming experience. I found the frames to perform well after trying some shooting and MOBA games. Perform the graphics card GeForce 940MX is sufficient for most games, while 1G of memory is useless.
Also, I tried to unlock the bracelet. By placing the Xiaomi Mi Band 2 near the standby interface of the laptop’s lock screen. This may sound full of technology. However, to achieve this function, three conditions need to meet. An updated Win10 RS1 system, suitable Xiaomi software, and Xiaomi Band 2.
The 13.3-inch version is to generate a two-screen interface with 4K resolution through the HDMI interface. Thus becoming a “three-screen device”.
Both versions use 1.3mm keypad keyboards. From a short-term perspective, it feels better than my MacBook Pro. But for long-term writing, they exhaust most laptop keyboards than any standalone keyboard. Therefore, choosing the keyboard space may be less important.
To sum up
As a thin and light notebook computer, taking into account good performance. The Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air can meet the needs of many people. Although imperfect in performance, this novelty is compact enough in body design.
