For now, Xiaomi’s announcement only concerns the Chinese market. RedmiBook computers are not yet announced in Europe for the moment, but we must admit that their technical characteristics do indeed make them want to land in our countries.
Three screen diagonals are on the program – 13 “, 14” and 16.1 “- for a chassis that looks similar throughout the series (except for the dimensions). The weight is between 1.2 kg for RedmiBook 13 and 14 and 1.8 kg for the RedmiBook 16. The screen, for its part, has fairly thin borders (3.26 mm) with an image occupancy rate compared to the chassis of 91% The nature of the panel is not specified, but it is a safe bet that it is of IPS type and that it offers a Full HD definition.
On the technical side, the brand trusts AMD and its Ryzen 4000 Renoir. The configurations can thus be proposed as well with a Ryzen 5 4500U as a Ryzen 7 4700U, with the key performance that promises to be high. The RAM is limited to 8 GB in the most accessible versions but can also be 16 GB on certain variants. Finally, the storage is entrusted to a 512 GB SSD and the 13 “version can also accommodate an optional 1 TB SSD. Xiaomi advances a battery life of 12 hours with a USB-C recharge. The battery can also be recharged to 50% in just 38 minutes.
Availability in China is scheduled for June 1 at rather aggressive prices between € 440 excl. Tax and € 570 excl. Tax, depending on the configuration. If they land in France, these laptops will confront the Acer Swift 3 , Huawei MateBook D14 and other Honor MagicBook 14 – references also declined in several diagonals. These different competitors are also offered with similar configurations and at equally aggressive prices. Count 650 € for a MateBook D14, in Ryzen 5 3500U, however.
