Xiaomi Mi Notebook 14 Review (256 GB)

Mi Notebook 14 Review

Before buying any laptop, we have to see Display size, Resolution, Processor, Processor speed, Memory, Storage, Battery life, Weight, Audio, and Graphics card.

After reading this post about Mi Notebook 14 review, you will get all knowledge to buy a Mi laptop or any other laptop.

You can buy any laptop, but before buying you need to check the above specifications. Now we will see the full specifications for Mi Notebook 14 (256 GB),

Mi Notebook 14 (256 GB) Specifications:

1. Display size:

As we come to Mi Notebook 14 (256), it has a display size of 14-inch. The display size is more than enough for normal users.

All Mi laptops have only a 14-inch display size. If you need a 15.6-inch display size, then you can go with other laptop brands like HP, Dell,……………

If you are interested in only Mi Notebook 14 series then you have to compromise in display size.

2. Resolution:

Screen resolution is also important in laptops. You must also check screen resolution before buying.

After Mi Notebook 14 review, we noticed that all the Mi laptops have (1920X 1080 ) Full HD screen resolution.

Some laptops have (1280 × 720 ) HD screen resolution. The Full HD resolution has better video quality than the HD resolution.

So better to prefer (1920X 1080 ) Full HD screen resolution on other laptops also.

3. Processor:

The processor plays a key role in laptop performance. So if a laptop has a better processor, then it has better performance.

As we come to gaming, the processor performance is the most important thing in gaming performance and handling.

All non-horizon Mi laptops have an intel core i5 processor, but one of the Mi horizon laptop has an intel core i7 processor.

For gaming and editing purposes, the i7 processor gives better performance than the i5 processor. So if anyone is interested to buy a laptop for gaming, then better to prefer the i7 processor laptop.

The i5 processor can handle up to medium level gaming and editing.

4. Processor speed:

The processor speed also matters in laptop performance and speed. Having more processor speed helps to give quick and better performance.

The processor speed determines how quickly the CPU initiates the instructions.

After Mi Notebook 14 review we have found that all Mi non horizon laptops has 1.6 GHz processor speed.

But the Mi Notebook 14 horizon laptop with an i7 processor has a 1.8 GHz processor speed, which is a little bit more quick performance than a 1.6 GHz processor speed.

5. Memory:

Generally, all Mi Notebook 14 series laptops have 8 GB RAM. The RAM also matters in laptop performance and multi-tasking.

The 8 GB RAM is sufficient for normal usage and normal gaming usage. For heavy gaming, you must need 16 GB RAM rather than 8 GB RAM.

6. Storage:

The storage really matters for office users and students. But most people thought that some laptops have a 1TB HDD which twice the storage than Mi laptops.

Mi Notebook laptops don’t have any HDD storage all Mi laptops have SSD storage capacity. As we compared with storage, the 1 TB HDD has more storage capacity than 256 GB SSD and 512 GB SSD.

But as we compared with speed and performance SSD performs well than HDD. The HDD has moving parts to store data in it, but SSD has chips to store data.

The SSD uses less battery power than HDD, the SSD is quick than HDD, the SSD doesn’t lose any data if the laptop was dropped, but in HDD when the laptop was dropped if any moving parts in HDD were damaged, then we cannot recover data.

The laptop will get heat if you are using HDD storage. So for gamers also better to take SSD storage than HDD storage.

7. Battery life:

Office users mainly need good battery life laptops. All most all Mi laptops will give you a battery life of Up to 10 hours.

For any type of users 8 to 10 hours battery life is needed. Some laptops have battery life up to 12 hours and 15 hours.

If you need more battery life, then better to go with those laptops than Mi laptops.

8. Weight:

So many users ignore the weight of the laptop. Before buying a laptop, you have to check the weight of the laptop and choose the less weight laptop.

On an average, all Mi laptops have 1.5Kg weight. If you buy other brand laptops, then before buying check the weight of the laptop.

9. Audio:

Audio quality is also important in any laptop. The Audio quality is matters when you are watching a movie or listening to songs.

After Mi Notebook 14 review, we found that all Mi laptops have Stereo speakers with DTH Audio processing. Before buying any laptop ones check the speakers or audio description.

10. Graphics Card:

The Graphics card is mainly useful for gamers or game lovers. Having the best graphics card will give the gaming experience more realistic and attractive.

If you are a game lover better to choose a high graphic card laptop for better graphics and game experience.

And the graphics card is really doesn’t matter for normal users, students, and office users. The normal graphics card is more than enough for the above types of users.
