Xiaomi on Thursday said it will soon launch a new variant of the Mi NoteBook 14 in India. This will have a lower price, will have a 10th Gen Core i3 processor, and will come with a regular built-in webcam. The rest of the specs are likely to remain similar to the current Mi NoteBook 14.
At the moment there are no details on the price of the next Mi NoteBook 14 with Core i3 processor. But the price of the Mi NoteBook 14 with Core i5 can offer some clues. Currently, Xiaomi’s most affordable Mi NoteBook 14 costs Rs 41,999. The Core i3 variant is likely to be priced close to Rs 35,000, although it is likely that it would be something between Rs 40,000 and Rs 35,000 because apart from the CPU and webcam, Xiaomi may not change much in Rs 41,999.
Xiaomi India boss Manu Kumar Jain tweeted the details of the upcoming Mi NoteBook 14 along with his image. The tweet noted that the Mi NoteBook 14 will ship with a Core i3 processor and 256GB SSD. The accompanying image showed that the laptop will have slightly thicker bezels around the screen and a built-in webcam. The image also notes that the laptop will weigh around 1.5kg, similar to the current Mi NoteBook 14 powered by Core i5.
In other words, the Mi NoteBook 14 will take care of one of the biggest user complaints about the laptop: it’s the lack of a built-in webcam. Currently, Xiaomi ships it with a free external webcam that can be connected to the laptop.
While we will see what the Mi NoteBook 14 brings to the table and at what price, if Xiaomi doesn’t change the laptop much and costs it around Rs 35,000, it should become one of the best laptops in its segment. When we looked at the Mi NoteBook 14, we found that it was a very capable laptop with good hardware, including an SSD and 8GB of RAM. It’s keyboard and build quality is pretty good too, even if the trackpad is smaller.
A Mi NoteBook 14, with the same screen and design we’ve seen so far, a 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM and the Core i3 processor at a price of around Rs 35,000 will be extremely convincing. At the moment, it is unknown when Xiaomi will launch the new laptop. But if Manu is tweeting about it, it is likely that the new Mi NoteBook 14 will arrive within a few weeks.
