Superb Notebook but still no Touch Screen?

It is rumored that the Core i5 version will bare the $900 price tag, which means, it is priced close to even a true Gaming Laptop. Like its predecessor, you are probably getting a premium Notebook. However, it is still not a Gaming Notebook, considering it only has a low end Nvidia MX150. Also worthy to mention that it still doesn’t have Touch Screen, it seems Xiaomi is keen on keeping this a pure notebook.  Probably a major change change is the addition of Ports or IO’s. Also Xiaomi has advertised this to have a much bigger Keyboard Layout compared to the Macbook Pro.

There are two models to choose from, the Core i7 version will probably come out much later compared to the Core i5. Both still offers up to 256 GB NVMe SSD Storage support, which is a welcome addition.
