The Xiaomi Air 13 Laptop is on sale

Wanting to get your hands on a lightweight but powerful laptop for 2017? The Xiaomi Air 13 might be in your radar.

The Xiaomi Air comes in two varieties: a 13.3-inch version, and a lighter 12.5-inch model. The 13.3-inch version is more powerful, with an Intel Core i5 processor, a 256GB SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce 940MX mobile graphics card that Xiaomi says makes it capable of playing video games like Dota 2 at high frame rates. It also features a Type-C USB socket which is absent in its smaller sibling. But while the 12.5-inch model only has an Intel Core M3 processor, integrated graphics, and a 128GB SSD, it has the 13.3-inch model beat on battery life — Xiaomi says it lasts 11-and-a-half hours on a single charge, in comparison with the nine-and-a-half the bigger model is capable of.
