More details regarding the upcoming rumored Xiaomi Mi notebook have finally surfaced.
According to Chinese sources, the Mi branded notebook will be an ODM device manufactured by Inventec. As far as the specs go, the notebook is expected to be powered by a Haswell Intel Core i7 CPU and feature a 15.6-inch Full HD display. The notebook will also be equipped with 8GB of RAM and an outdated NVIDIA GTX 760M GPU with 2GB of dedicated VRAM.
The reason behind opting for a relatively old GPU could be to cut costs as newer GTX 900M series cards would certainly cost more. Similarly, sticking to older Haswell based CPU should also allow Xiaomi to lower costs and achieve a competitive price-point. Rumors suggest the Mi notebook could be priced under 3000 Chinese Yuan, which converts to about $465.
