Xiaomi’s RedmiBook 14 is the budget laptop you’ve been waiting for


Alongside the launch of the Redmi K20 series, Xiaomi announced the RedmiBook 14, the first laptop from the sub-brand. Xiaomi has launched several notebooks over the years under its own brand, and the Mi Notebook Pro, in particular, has a similar design and hardware like the MacBook Pro for half the price.

The Redmi sub-brand, however, is all about the budget segment, and the RedmiBook 14 starts off at just 3,999 RMB ($580). For that price, you get a notebook with eighth-gen Intel Core i5 CPU, 256GB SSD, and 4GB of RAM. You can also configure the notebook with a Core i7 CPU, 512GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM, with that particular option costing 4,999 RMB ($725).

What makes the RedmiBook 14 stand out is the fact that both models feature NVIDIA’s GeForce MX250 GPU. You also get two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port, 3.5mm jack, and Wi-Fi ac along with Bluetooth connectivity.
