This $540 USD Xiaomi Laptop Means Serious Competition For Apple's Macbook Air

The Chinese tech giant targets budget-conscious youths.

Do you recognize Xiaomi’s Mi Notebook Air? Yes, the smartphone maker’s new laptop range means war with Apple’s Macbook Air. The $46 billion USD tech giant dominated China’s mobile sector with its cheap cellulars and now turns its gaze to portable computers.

The laptop will be available in two models – an advanced 13.3-inch and cheaper 12.5-inch – to retail at $750 and $540 USD, respectively. Billionaire CEO, Lei Jun, announced:
