Along with its ‘bezel-less’ flagship, the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, the company has just announced a new variant of its laptop, the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro, which comes with Windows 10 OS. Both of these announcements occurred during the company’s press event in China, and as we’ve already covered the announcement of the Xiaomi’s new flagship smartphone, it’s time to take a look at the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro. This notebook is made out of metal, and it packs really powerful specs on the inside, it comes with the world’s first batch of 8th generation Intel Core i7 processors, which, according to Xiaomi, perform 40 percent better than the previous-gen Core i7 chips.
Now, this new notebook also comes with an all-new cooling system, it sports a symmetrical cooling system with double inbound and outbound airflows, which are supposed to cool down this notebook in no time, even if you’re using it heavily and have no intention of stopping anytime soon.
