Xiaomi Air 12 laptop review: Like a MacBook, but a third of the price – Ars Technica UK

If you’re in the market for a compact laptop and have an eye on style there’s one obvious choice: the Apple MacBook. Unfortunately, while the MacBook is a desirable piece of kit, its starting price of £1,250 for a mere Core m3 processor and 8GB of memory is hardly what you’d call good value.

While there are Windows alternatives to the MacBook—Microsoft’s Surface and Dell’s XPS 12 spring to mind—few are based on the same compact 12-inch laptop form factor, or cost substantially less money. Chinese gadget maker Xiaomi wants to change all that with the Xiaomi Air 12, a MacBook-style laptop that retails for a third of the price. Not only does the Air 12 feature a remarkably similar industrial design to Cupertino’s offering, it boasts similar specs too. It’s almost too good to be true.
