This Laptop has a metallic body, which is a bit different from than Apple Mac edition and the metallic body ensures durability. The best thing about this Laptop is that it is a plain lid, there is no branding on any side, which provides an amazing and classy look. The company had promoted themselves only on a single side, which is inside the screen, where users will be able to see a small Mi logo.

Performance

The performance of a laptop depends on the features provided by the company and we have experienced some amazing features of Xiaomi smartphones and we can also expect this thing from their laptops. The amazing advantage of the Xiaomi laptop is that if you want some more advanced features then you can switch to an i7 processor, where you will be able to see the difference of just Rs.5,000. Many peoples are asking that is it worth switching from the processor i5 to i7? Then let me clear that there is only a big difference, which is Hyperthreading that will help to increase the multi-threaded tasks. 

If you are looking for a more advanced photo editing feature then it doesn’t have any means because you will not get anything new in the i7 processor. The best thing we experienced about this laptop is that we don’t have faced any lags or other issues after using it for a long time of work, it was working very smoothly. Yes, it gets some heat but it is common to have the heat after using it for long hours but there was no glare. This laptop comes with Windows 10 operating system and comes with some inbuilt apps. The only issue we found is that it has a very low audio output, as we expect something louder from our laptop. But if I talk about my total experience then I am pretty satisfied with this Laptop because of its amazing performance. 

Battery

If we are talking about battery life then let me tell you that you don’t need to compromise on it. It has a battery life of 8 – 10 hours without any interruption, so you don’t have to stop your work just because of the battery issue. This is the key highlight of Xiaomi Notebook Horizon. It comes with a 65-watt power adapter to charge the laptop, which can charge it very quickly. The battery is very impressive and it is my personal experience. 

Keyboard

This laptop comes with a classy look keyboard, which has a smooth finish and easy-to-operate functions. It has ABS texture keys, which are durable and very convenient to use. There is a distance of 1.3 mm between every key and there is also a dust protection layer on the whole keyboard so that we don’t need to clean the keyboard again and again. 

Trackpad

This laptop has a multi-touch trackpad, which makes it very convenient to operate all the functions with ease. The functions like swipe, scroll, zoom in, and zoom-out are quite smooth and it will help to stay on the right track. Overall, the trackpad is smooth to use and the cursor will perform as you want.

It doesn’t matter how much time you use, it will keep the laptop warm.
