Xiaomi Mi Air 12 Revisited – Aesthetics versus Performance
So how reliable is the Xiaomi Mi Air 12 and how did it fair being my daily driver for 3 months and still counting. Here are my impressions
The video below is my revisiting or re-reviewing of the Xiaomi Mi Air 12 and find out what I think about it, any issues or problems that might have appeared recently or is there any reliability issue with this Notebook.
So far, this is still the best laptop I have tested of 2016. Basically looking not just on performance but overall.
Apparently, for Xiaomi, Looking good comes at a price. This is what I describe the Xiaomi Mi Air 12. The Xiaomi Mi Air on on word “Beautiful”, but underneath that is some underutilized Power and Performance. It’s sad really since, it is a really great laptop. The Keyboard and Touchpad is great, amazing display, great speakers, connectivity, you name it. It is an all in one laptop and a macbook killer I might assume. But the underclocking of the CPU is really annoying, which means you don’t get 100% all raw performance. On my earlier videos, It as the last on Video Encoding Performance and seriously lags behind compared to the Cube i7 Book. But a good thing is that it runs cool all the time. 30°C Idle, and around 50-55C on load is the best for any traveler. If you don’t need 100% performance all the time, and want an all around Notebook, then the Xiaomi Mi Air 12 is still the best choice.
