Gaming is essential these days. We have gaming phones, gaming PCs, and now, gaming laptops. Xiaomi has released a new gaming laptop in China with 3 variants. Considering what Xiaomi gives us with their phones, we can expect that a laptop from them will impress us in those same ways. Let’s take a look at where each variant differs from each other:

While there aren’t many changes in the design if we compare it to its predecessor, the spec sheet is where it gets interesting. Things which are common in each of them are a 15.6-inch display with a screen-to-body ratio of 81% and a 144Hz refresh rate which provides a smooth experience. Here is the variant wise comparison:

The Base Variant

The 1st variant has a Full HD display with 144Hz refresh rate as I mentioned above and is powered by the 9th-gen Core i5-9300H processor, 8Gb of RAM, and has a 512GB PCIe SSD. It has the Nvidia GTX 1660Ti for your gaming needs. The laptop has a 55WH battery and will come with Windows 10 out-of-the-box. Price of the base variant is 7,499 yuan which converts to Rs.75,000.

The Mid Variant

The 2nd variant has the same Nvidia GTX 1660Ti GPU, same Full-HD display with 144Hz of refresh rate, a same 55HW battery, and has the same 512GB PCIe SSD. The things where it differs from the base variant is the RAM, the processor, and obviously the price. It has 16GB of RAM, a 9th Gen Core-i7 9750H processor and is priced at 8,599 yuan which converts to Rs.86,400

The Top Variant

The 3rd and the most high-end variant has Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB PCIe SSD, 55HW battery, and is powered by the 9th gen Core-i7 9750H processor. Has the exact same Full HD display. The top variant is priced at 8,999 yuan which is Rs.89,000 in Indian currency.

Coming to some more things which the 3 variants have in common are Bluetooth 5.0, 1 microphone port, 1 ethernet port, 1 headphone jack, 1 HDMI port, a 1MP HD webcam, dual band WiFi, Dual 3W speakers which support Dolby Audio. My most favorite part of this laptop is that it has a glass touchpad, and a backlit keyboard which supports 4 colors. Cool right?

The laptop is a beast. With the specs, we can see how it would perform even under heavy usage. What we don’t know, is that will this laptop ever come to India or not. Xiaomi didn’t launch the Mi Gaming laptop in India which was launched last year. Considering that, I think the chances of it arriving in India are pretty slim. But I do hope that things change this time.
