Xiaomi isn’t new to the laptop space and sells a few models in its home market of China. Now, the company has refreshed its previous offering to maintain an edge. Dubbed as the Mi Gaming Laptop, it intends to offer a perfect balance of specs and price.
Under the hood, Xiaomi has made some key improvements in all departments. For starters, the gaming laptop comes with a display that supports 144Hz refresh rate for smoother gameplay. Quick Cooling thermal management system ensures performance isn’t affected with intensive tasks or extended usage.
It comes with a 15.6-inch Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) anti-glare display, narrow screen bezels, and a brushed aluminum chassis. There are heat vents on both sides along with an array of ports that include four USB 3.0, HDMI 2.0, Ethernet, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The base model comes with a 9th generation Intel Core i5-9300H processor with a base frequency of 2.4GHz and Turbo Boost of up to 4.1GHz. Along with this, the base model is powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and an 8GB DDR4 RAM. On the storage front, the base model has a 512GB PCIe SSD.
The high-end option features a 9th generation Intel Core i7-9750H processor with a base frequency of 2.6GHz and Turbo Boost of up to 4.5GHz. Also, it sports NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and 16GB DDR4 RAM.
The backlit keyboard is divided into 4 sections with each key having 1.8mm of travel. This includes five programmable keys. A 55W battery powers these internals and Xiaomi claims it can provide 4.5 hours of video playback or web browsing on a single charge.
The whole package comes with a starting price of CNY 7,499, or about US$ 1,068. It’s currently restricted to China and we doubt it’ll be coming to other international markets anytime soon.

Lenovo launches the ThinkBook 14 and ThinkBook 15
Perfect for enterprise users
Months ago, Lenovo launched a new series of laptops — the ThinkBook. Compared to the ubiquitous ThinkPad, the ThinkBook caters to the enterprise market. The series’ launch opened with two new laptops, the ThinkBook 13s and the ThinkBook 14s. Without missing a beat, Lenovo has already expanded the ThinkBook family. Meet the newest members — the ThinkPad 14 and the ThinkPad 15!
Like the ThinkBook 14s, the ThinkBook 14 has a 14-inch narrow-bezel FHD screen. Inside, the laptop carries up to a 10th-generation 6-core Intel Core i7 processor and an AMD Radeon 620 GPU. It has 4GB of DDR4 memory optimized with Intel Optane. For storage, it has up to 1TB of PCIe SSD and 2TB of HDD storage.
Additionally, the ThinkBook 14 features a backlit keyboard with Skype for Business hotkeys. For security, it offers Smart Power On and a ThinkShutter cover for the webcam. The laptop’s 57Wh battery can last up to 12 hours. Alternatively, a 45Wh variant comes with Rapidcharge.
On the other hand, the ThinkBook 15 offers much of the same features as the ThinkBook 14. However, the laptop comes with a larger 15-inch narrow-bezel FHD screen. Because of its larger size, the keyboard fits in a number pad. Also, instead of an AMD Radeon 620 GPU, the laptop features a slightly upgraded AMD Radeon 625 GPU.
Lenovo reveals new Yoga lineup at IFA 2019
A Yoga for everyone
IFA 2019 is underway in Berlin, and Lenovo has more to offer than ever before. Apart from their revamped lineups of devices, they are also proud to introduce new additions to their famed Yoga lineup. These devices now bring an increase of power and performance, brighter and more colorful displays — all in a portable design.
Headlining the new additions is the Lenovo Yoga C940, the powerhouse 2-in-1 designed for creators and creative professionals. The Lenovo Yoga C940 comes with up to a 10th generation Intel Core i9 processor, supercharging workflow and performance. There is an option to get the device with the NVIDIA GTX 1650 to boost overall graphical performance, especially for video editors. Along with a 4K VESA DisplayHDR display, you can expect more accurate and vibrant colors, as well.
Along with the Yoga C940, Lenovo also revealed the Lenovo Yoga S740, a more all-around 2-in-1 device. Unlike the Lenovo Yoga C940, this device caters to those looking for everything compacted in a ultra sleek form. It offers the same features and hardware options as the Yoga C940, but centered around productivity and gaming.
Finally, IFA 2019 will also see the launch of the Lenovo Yoga C640 and C740 for professionals and productivity users. These two devices focus heavily on delivering top-grade performance to perform a multitude of tasks. What also sets these two apart is the inclusion of a physical privacy shutter for smarter security options — especially when you’re scared of the deep web.
As of writing, there are no pricing options and release dates yet for all of these devices.
