Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi has taken the stage to launch their new thin and light notebook – the RedmiBook Air 13, an obvious MacBook Air clone at cheap. Redmi has entered into the laptop market for few years and has been bringing in quite a lot of new laptops for its native market, mostly focusing on the budget range as its parent company brings in a bit more premium ones.
So, the new RedmiBook Air 13 is a 13.3-inch display laptop along with a good 2560 x 1600 pixels screen resolution and a trending 16:10 aspect ratio. The laptop’s display is sick as it also covers 100% sRGB color gamut and having 300nits of peak brightness makes it usable in almost all conditions, still a good overall display for a budget MacBook Air clone.
Interestingly, Redmi has opted to go for the fanless 10th Gen Intel Core i5-10210Y processor that gives up to 4.5GHz Turbo Boost with all its 4 cores and 8 threads. It comes paired with 8GB or 16GB RAM along with a respectable 512GB of SSD storage.
Even though having a low power drawing CPU, Redmi has implemented an all-copper heat dissipation module for better cooling and also comes with a dual-outlet design for better heat dissipation. Much expectedly, for connectivity, you get the latest Wi-Fi 6 along with Bluetooth 5.1 support.
However, on the battery front, a little sacrifice is done as the new RedmiBook Air 13 comes with only 41Wh battery that is said to last about eight hours of usage. Mostly, this is done to maintain the laptop’s slim profile as it weighs just 1.05kg and measures only 12.99mm in thickness.
Redmi has kept the ports simple with just two USB Type-C ports responsible for charging the laptop with the paired 65W USB-C adapter and there’s also a 3.5mm headphone jack on the right side. Obviously, the RedmiBook Air 13 has a metal unibody design and runs on Windows 10 OS.
The RedmiBook Air 13 with 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD has been priced at 4,899 yuan ($705 or Rs. 52,756) while the 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD variant costs 5,199 yuan ($748 or Rs. 55,986). As for availability, the laptop is already for pre-orders in China wherein a deposit of 100 yuan has to be made while it will officially go on sale from 17th August.
