Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro and Mi Notebook Ultra launched in India with 11th Gen Intel CPU and 65W Charging
Earlier this month, Xiaomi introduced RedmiBook 15 laptops in India. Today, the company has announced the Mi Notebook Pro and Mi Notebook Ultra to offer a more premium experience. The more expensive model has better internal components, but the identical body designs are extremely similar.

Xiaomi Mi Notebook Ultra
The Mi Notebook Ultra is the first device on our list. The new device is powered by Intel’s newest 11th Generation Core i7-11370H processor, but you can also buy a version with the same generation i5-11300H CPU, which runs at a maximum clock speed of 4.4GHz.
Graphically intensive work can be handled by the graphics processor, Iris Xe, which is included in both variants. The i7 option, though, only comes with a single 16GB RAM option; the i5 model, meanwhile, has an 8GB RAM option. There is some variation in RAM, but all of the machines share a same internal storage capacity, which is 512GB NVMe SSD.
The Mi Notebook Ultra is extremely thin at just under 18mm thick, it weighs just under 2 kg, and it is composed of durable 6-series aerospace-grade aluminium. It features a large display (15.6 inches) that delivers 3,200×2,000-pixel resolution (16:10 aspect ratio) and a 90Hz screen refresh rate. And TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light protection filters blue light without affecting the screen’s colour accuracy, Xiaomi claims. DC Dimming reduces eye fatigue as well.
The Mi Notebook Ultra includes a 70Whr battery that is said to deliver 12 hours of battery life and a backlit keyboard with three brightness levels. You can charge it with the included 65W charger, which takes only 45 minutes to fill the cell up to 50%.
The Mi Notebook Ultra contains an internal Type-C port, Thunderbolt 4, one USB 3.2 Gen 1 port, 1x USB 2.0 ports, and an HDMI port for communication.
Mi Notebook Ultra has fingerprint reader in the power button, HD webcam, 3.5mm combo connector, in-built microphone, and stereo speakers with DTS Audio compatibility, among its other advantages.
With Mi Notebook Ultra, Mi Fans get Office 2019 and Windows 10 installed by default. Even though Windows 11 will be free, the software is going to get a free upgrade.
Xiaomi Mi Notebook Pro
The Mi Notebook Pro is 17.3mm thick and 1.46 kg in weight, which is significantly smaller and lighter than the Mi Notebook Ultra, yet they are manufactured out of the same material. This is because the Pro variant features a smaller 14″ TrueLife Display with a resolution of 2,560×1,600 pixels. The Pro’s screen’s aspect ratio is the same as the Ultra’s, but the max refresh rate is 60Hz and the pixel density is lower at 215ppi.
The Mi Notebook Pro has a smaller battery (56Whr), which according to the company, only lasts an hour shorter than the Ultra’s cell and takes 34 minutes to charge.
A significant difference is in the keyboard, for example. The Mi Notebook Ultra has a 1.5mm key travel in its keyboard, whilst the Pro model has a shorter 1.3mm key travel.
The rest of the features on Mi Notebook Pro remain the same as Mi Notebook Ultra’s.
