Xiaomi Book Air 13: MacBook Air Alternative With Alder Lake CPUs

While the buzz recently was with the Redmi Note 12 Pro series that include the Explorer Edition with an insanely fast 210w charging solution, Xiaomi also announced a new laptop with the Book Air 13. Coming in with either a Core i7-1250U or Core i5-1230U processor, both variants come with Iris Xe integrated graphics, 16GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 512GB PCIe 4.0 SSD—in short, you are getting the latest hardware with it.

The Xiaomi Book Air 13 is a 2-in-1 device with its 13.3-inch OLED display that can rotate 360 degrees. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 and has touchscreen functionality, 2880×1800 resolution, and support for Dolby Vision and HDR 500.

The Book Air 13 has a 4-speaker system that consists of two main speakers and two tweeters, while connectivity options include two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports and a headphone jack. Keeping the lights on is a 58.3wHr battery that supports 65w USB-PD charging. Xiaomi managed to cram all of those in a 12mm thick chassis while keeping the weight at around 1.2kg.

The Core i5 model is priced at CNY 5,999(~Php 48.1k), while the Core i7 model is priced at CNY 6,999(~Php 56.1k). Both models are currently exclusive to China, and there’s no word yet if Xiaomi intends on making the Book Air 13 available in the Philippines.
