Lenovo has introduced a new 13.3-inch notebook that is very clearly aimed at the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air that was made official in China yesterday. Dubbed the Air 13 Pro, it happens to be quite similar to the 13.3-inch Mi Notebook Air in a number of areas.
Like the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air, the Lenovo Air 13 Pro is powered by the 6th Gen Intel Skylake i5-6200U processor and features a 13.3-inch IPS display with 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution. It also includes 4GB of RAM, 256GB of PCIe SSD storage, discrete NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics, 802.11 ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB Type-C port, and 1W stereo speakers.
Some of the other highlights include an HD webcam, 46Whr battery, fingerprint recognition, and a backlit keyboard. The Air 13 Pro weighs in at 1.29kg and has a really thin 1.48cm profile. It is now up for pre-registration in China for 4999 Yuan ($750), which is identical to the Mi Notebook Air 13.3-inch. However, the price is going to go up to 5499 Yuan ($825) once the pre-sale closes.
