Below you can see a comparison chart of 3500U and 8250U.
Like the Redmibook 14, it has a 14-inch display with an 81.2 percent screen-to-body ratio. For audio, Dolby DTS audio support will also be included.
Another unique feature is the cross band file transfer feature. Features announced earlier this year allow you to transfer files between Xiaomi, Oppo, Vivo phones and laptops without file size limit. It will work like Apple’s Airdrop.
Xiaomi is challenging other high-end premium laptops brands with the same specs as the new Redmibooks. In fact, the upcoming Ryzen redmibooks are sure to get back the performance they paid for.
At the moment, a laptop with a Core i5, 8GB of RAM, and an SSD costs around $ 100,000, while Redmibooks will start at around $ 650,000, and in the laptop world, Redmibooks will be PtoP laptops.
