Xiaomi releases the Mi Notebook Pro

Apple MacBook Pro is one of the most popular laptops of our time, at least in the western parts of the world. It’s neat and clean, thin and light design with powerful specifications make it the ultimate choice of professionals.

Being a luxury product and often carrying a hefty price tag, MacBook Pro hasn’t found much success in countries like Pakistan where companies like Dell, Acer, Toshiba, and more are the dominant players in the laptop market.

However, if you want something similar to MacBook Pro in terms of size, weight, performance, and style, you may find it in the newly released Mi Notebook Pro by Xiaomi.
