Cons

~ Xiaomi is getting praise for using Intel i5-10 gen processors from all sides. But the processor used in Mi notebook 14 is not the latest one, Xiaomi using the comet lake processors which are old 14nm processor while other brands using ice lake chips which are 10nm based.

~ One thing you have to note that these laptops only come with 8Gb of Ram and there is no option to upgrade it. This is one of the biggest con of this laptop. Higher model of Horizon edition also comes with 8gb of Ram and it is also an un-upgradable RAM, that means it isn’t possible to add more RAM in future.

Mi notebook 14 review, Mi notebook 14 cons, Mi notebook 14 pros

~ Mi notebook 14 is a premium laptops and it doesn’t have a backlit keyboard. this is kind of a deal-breaker for most of the people, however, topmost variant(Rs.60,000) also does not have a Backlit keyboard and the keyboard is made up of plastic which doesn’t give you a premium feel while typing.

~ All models of Mi notebook 14 comes with an SSD which is a good choice over HDD but these laptops don’t have an upgradable memory slot which means if you wish to upgrade memory then you have to use External Drive

Or You have to upgrade the whole memory in the laptop you can’t add additional drives in it.which is really a bad option seeing they have also launched the 256GB variant model.

~ Mi notebook 14 doesn’t have a webcam, they give additional webcam but it isn’t suitable for all of the people. Some people like this and some don’t, they give a webcam free in the box but it is a very handy feature you have to additionally take it where ever you go.

~ Mi notebook 14 series are considered as Premium series but it lacks a fingerprint sensor, Somes brands give fingerprint sensor in mid 30’s range also at a launch event Xiaomi said you can play games in it but this laptop isn’t for gaming you can play basic games in it but Playing games in this laptop is a really bad option.

Conclusion

Xiaomi did a balanced job in it But the main question comes in mind is that who should buy it? Well if you are a mid-level employee or a college student who wants a thin and light laptop and for daily tasks than this laptops is a good choice for you but if you want a heavy gaming and heavy designing than this is not a right choice for you.
