Xiaomi follows on last year's Mi Notebook Air with a take on the MacBook Pro-- the Mi Notebook Pro, a 15.6-inch laptop powered by the latest Intel quad-core i7 processor.

Mi Note ProAlso found inside the Mi Notebook Pro are up to 16GB RAM, up to 1TB SSD storage and, as an alternative to Intel integrated graphics, an Nvidia GeForce MX 150 chip. The display is clad in Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and has side bezels of just 6.25mm, with the webcam built inside the top bezel.

Connectivity comes through x2 USB-C ports, x2 regular USB ports, 3-in-1 card reader and a full-size HDMI port, while a fingerprint sensor is built into the trackpad. Another feature is a "special cooling system" featuring symmetrically distributed dual fans and a larger heat pipe to double airflow. The result, the company says, provides even temperature distribution.

So far the Mi Notebook Pro is getting a Chinese launch, with no word as to whether it will be available in European markets.
