Mi Gaming Laptop 2019

Xiaomi has taken the wraps off its latest gaming laptop – the creatively named Mi Gaming Laptop 2019. The laptop packs impressive specs and has a starting price of ¥7499 (~$1080).

Design

With respect to design, the Mi Gaming Laptop 2019 looks no different from last year’s model. You have the same number of ports and vents, a 15.6-inch display with the same bezel size, and the exact keyboard layout. However, we do feel like the 2019 version comes in a darker shade of black

Specs

While the design hasn’t changed, a lot has changed under the hood. But before that, it is important to mention that the display has an interesting new feature. It is still 15.6-inches, has the same 81% screen-to-body ratio, and 72% color gamut. On top of all that, it adds a 144Hz refresh rate for much smoother gameplay.
