The Mi Notebook Pro will go on sale in China for ¥5,699 ($840) for the variant with the Core i5 and 8GB of RAM. It's unlikely the notebook will be available outside of China. The Mi Notebook Pro is wrapped in magnesium alloy material. A Core i7/16GB RAM configuration will set you back the rough equivalent of $1,075 (6999 yuan), but it's probably wise not to expect United States availability anytime soon. Additionally, it packs with Nvidia's new Geforce MX 150 chip.This chip is by far the most powerful graphical integrated chip by Intel which Xiaomi's Notebook is offering. The mid-range option drops the RAM to 8GB, while the entry-level Mi Notebook Pro also drops the processor down to a Core i5 8250U.
