MI is a new name which is setting down its legs in the tech world with the amazing feedbacks by the customers.

MI not only make smartphones but they play well in the field of laptop and television. Though, these Xiaomi Laptops could stand out at a better position than well-known brands such as Asus, Dell, Lenovo, and others.

It weighs 1.5kg and is less than 18mm thick. You get a 14-inch complete-HD anti-reflective display, that’s fairly dull but has good viewing angles. All 3 editions use the identical quad-middle Intel Core i5-10210U processor.

That is based totally on the ‘Comet Lake’ architecture, and have 8GB of DDR4-2666MHz RAM which is soldered and now not upgradeable. You can pick out among a 256GB or 512GB SATA SSD, and a non-compulsory Nvidia GeForce MX250 discrete GPU.

The laptop comes with a slim body but not slim as compared to its horizon edition. The design of notebook 14 is quite simple and attractive to the buyers With the Metallic finish body.

Along with it comes an anodized sandblasted coating which gives the device a strong finishing. As the body is slim so the weight of the laptop is around 1.5 KG. The topmost surfaces of the devices simply design flat with no curves in them.

In the bottom part of the laptop, there are some rubber grips that help the laptop to be stable on different surfaces. Of course, there are two grills in the corner which works as the speaker of the laptop.

Although there is no logo on the body of the laptop, at the bottom side of the screen you can see a small logo of the MI brand.

Keyboard and its Designing

There’s another Negative thing about its keyboard design that it doesn’t come with a backlit keyboard. That implies the user cannot use the laptop in the dark space.

The composition of the keyboard keys is ABS with a distance of 1.3 MM. Along with the great feature of this keyboard is, the best thing Xiaomi includes is the inbuilt dust protection for a keyboard.

There are no mumps on the keyboard as well as any extra keys on the keyboard. The power button is the part of the keyboard in a laptop.

  • Scissor Mechanism
  • 1.3mm key travel
  • Gesture support

Display Quality

The display is 14 inches long with full HD with the protection of the Anti Glare display. The display comes with matte finishing that allows you to work for hours without any distractions.

The view angle of the display is good with the sharp contrast and brightness level. Across the board, as per the budget, MI is offering a decent display. The laptop is still quite lightweight and definitely made for portability.

It packs in a 14-inch screen with 1920 x 1080 resolutions. The display is quite just like the Horizon Edition. You get a 16:9 popular issue ratio, 178-diploma viewing attitude, and five.75mm bezels at the perimeters.

CPU Performance

The Mi notebook 14 runs on a 10th gen Intel core i5 10210U processor based on a 1.6 GHz quad-core with a boost clock (up to 4.2GHz), the i5 10th gen helps well for gaming as well for decent video editing work. You can rely on this CUP for your day-to-day stuff.

GPU Performance of Mi Notebook 14

As the brand MI claims that it works with the cooling vents which are virtually spread into the whole device which keeps the device cool. The laptop comes with a massive diameter cooling fan which doesn’t make any disturbance. So this will not annoy you by making noise.

The sound quality

Mi Notebook 14 Sound Quality

Coming to the sound quality of the Mi Notebook 14 laptop,  the output turned into decent enough for a laptop and it is able to be correct enough for a room.

Since the speaker grills are underneath the laptop, quite a few of your track/audio could be misplaced in case you are using it on a flat floor. The audio via headphone jack and Bluetooth were very well and breezy.

You can pair this device with Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 if you love TWS earphones or I would say to check out Mi Super Bass Wireless Headphones REVIEW this is for bass lover!
