Mi Notebook 14 Based on Intel 10th Gen CPUs Out Now: Starting $550

After the launch of the Renoir powered RedmiBooks, Xiaomi has gone ahead and followed it up with the Intel-based Mi Notebook 14 lineup. There are two main variants, namely the Mi Notebook 14 and the Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition. While the former comes with the Core i5-10210U, the latter also gives you the option to opt for the Core i7-10510U. Both are quad-core chips though and the main difference is in terms of the operating clocks.
