Last year, Xiaomi launched the first laptop set in India with the Mi NoteBook series. All of these performed very well. A year later, Redmi follows in its footsteps with two unique laptops. RedmiBook Pro and RedmiBook e-Learning Edition are driven by the demand for affordable computers caused by pandemics. Here’s everything you need to know about them.
The RedmiBook Pro has a minimalist design, a brushed metal finish on top, a Redmi logo and a polycarbonate body. It weighs 1.8 kg, but the distribution is very good. Available in a single color of charcoal gray. The thickness is 19.9 mm.
The screen extends to 15.6 inches and has full HD resolution. On top of that is a 720p HD webcam with two microphones for better audio capture. On the other side is a wide keyboard with 1.5 mm keystrokes and a 100 square centimeter trackpad with Windows Precision driver and gesture support.
The 46WHr battery powers the RedmiBook Pro, which is said to provide up to 10 hours of battery life. It can be charged quickly at 65W, and 50% refueling takes about 33 minutes. There are two 2W bottom firing speakers for 4W combined output along with DTS audio processing.
The RedmiBook Pro features the latest 11th generation Intel Core i5-11300H Tiger Lake processor with a maximum frequency of 4.4GHz and Intel Iris Xe graphics. There are 8GB of soldered DDR4 RAM (3200MHz) and 512GB of NVMe SSD. Storage is upgradeable and the Mi Store will be able to offer upgrades. Neither model has keyboard backlight, Thunderbolt 4, or Intel Evo certification.
The RedmiBook Pro is priced at Rs 49,999 and will be available in Flipkart starting August 6th. Banks are proposing to include discounts of up to Rs 3,500 on HDFC cards.
RedmiBook e-Learning Edition
Looking for something more affordable? The RedmiBook e-Learning Edition was also announced today. Very similar in most respects, but the biggest difference is the Intel Core i3-1115 G4 chipset. There is also a 256GB SATA SSD variant in addition to the 512GB NVMe SSD model.
The RedmiBook e-Learning Edition is priced at Rs 41,999 for the 256GB variant and Rs 44,999 for the 512GB variant. It will be available on Flipkart from August 6th. Bank offers include discounts of up to Rs 2,500 on HDFC Bank offers.
Xiaomi says it will follow the RedmiBook laptop with higher-end Mi NoteBooks in the coming months.
