Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi entered an all-new category on Tuesday with the launch of Redmi RedmiBook Pro and RedmiBook e-Learning Edition in India. Yes, Xiaomi had launched a few laptops last year but came from its premium Mi sub-brand while the new machines are the first from the house of Redmi. Those who have followed Xiaomi would know that it targets more budget conscious users with the Redmi sub-brand and the new RedmiBook series is an example of the same.

Mi Notebook 14
The Mi Notebook was launched with a 14-inch display and an FHD panel with an anti-glare coating. Xiaomi had used an Intel 10th Gen Core i5 processor as standard on all the variants, but the base model packed Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics whereas the top-end model got the Nvidia MX 250 card. All of this for Rs 41,999 was a head-turning deal last year same time and makes for a sensible recommendation even for now.
Sadly, the standard Mi Notebook 14 has been out of stock in the country for a very long time. Xiaomi’s official website is simply showing the Notify Me option and with the Redmibook launched around the same price, it won’t be surprising if the laptop silently disappears from the Indian market. Just to be clear, Xiaomi has not officially shown any intentions like that but, it’s a strategy electronics makers generally follow.
