Lenovo’s lineup of new Notebooks seems a bit familiar. The Ideapad 12 and 13 Pro has specs and price that rivals Xiaomi’s very own Mi Air 12 and 13. So what is known so far?

The Lenovo Ideapad 12 has the specs and price close to Xiaomi Mi Air 12. But aside from the crude hardware listings below, the information is still preliminary. There is still no word on the type of display, Build Quality or whether it will really be as good as Xiaomi’s Notebook.

But what is interesting, is that it will come with a faster version of Skylake, a Core M5-Y630 Chip which can turbo boost up to 2.9GHz. It will also come with a smaller battery compared to the Xiaomi Mi Air. The notebook will also come with 64 bit Windows 10 Edition, non activated, probably to curve the cost.
