While it's debatable as to how similar-looking the Mi Notebook Pro and the MacBook Pro are (naming convention aside), Xiaomi wasn't exactly helping by dedicating a keynote slide to mocking the lack of mainstream ports on Apple's machine.

The highlights of the Mi Notebook Pro are that it contains the fingerprint sensor for a biometric authentication. "The display is 15.6" with a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

It is packing a current generation Intel Core i7 quad-core CPU, up to 16GB of RAM and NVIDIA's new GeForce MX 150 GPU. The 8GB Intel Core i7 version costs ¥3699 which converts to around £430. The laptop is powered by 8th generation i7 processor, supports up to 16GB RAM and 1 TB SSD storage. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Xiaomi plans to bring the Mi Notebook Pro to the United States (at this time). Additionally, glass front of the Mi Notebook Pro has been bolstered by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

The only color variant available now of the Mi Notebook Pro is Black. "We designed a special cooling system, in order to get temperature evenly distributed and maintained", said Lei Jun in his keynote.

It comes with a fingerprint scanner which is embedded in the touchpad. Besides, it also comes with a Harman Infinity custom built speakers and Dolby Atmos certification. Each key is evenly spaced out and is also backlit. Any 15-inch "pro" laptop deserves a higher-res screen (even if it's something less than 4K), and you're going to notice the lack of pixels on a 1080p display that big.

Xiaomi also took a jab at Apple, with its laptop featuring more ports than the Macbook Pro - an SD card slot, a data USB C port, a full function USB C port, a full sized HDMI port, 2 USB 3.0 ports and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. The standard variant of the Mi Notebook Pro comprises of an Intel Core i5 Coffee Lake processor with 8GB RAM. It starts from CNY 5,599 to CNY 6,999. The mid-range option drops the RAM to 8GB, while the entry-level Mi Notebook Pro also drops the processor down to a Core i5 8250U.
