I’ve had the Mi Notebook Air 13 revised 2017 edition for a week now. If you weren’t aware, Xiaomi upgraded it to the latest CPU and GPU. It now sports the Kaby Lake series of CPU’s, either an i5 7200U or i7 7500U (i7 model not out yet) and Nvidia MX150 Pascal GPU with 2GB DDR5 RAM, the GPU is basically the Nvidia 1030. And then a ELAN fingerprint reader now located in the touchpad. Intel 8265 Wifi AC instead of Intel Wireless AC 8260. Can;t see any difference here with the WiFi chipset change.
The SSD is an NVMe PM961, I would say this is new, but the last batches of the 2016 Mi Notebook Air 13’s have started shipping with this faster NVMe drive.
The result is a much faster notebook, most of the benifit given to the GPU which is up in performance around 30% over the last gen Nvidia 940MX. And the CPU is around 14% faster. My review is here with the rating and a little more info. Also below, also featuring Vera the cat like my 2016 review! The 2017 refreshed model is currently selling for $979 with coupon NEWMIAIR13 here https://goo.gl/Fio4wg Expect this price to drop like the 2016 model has which is now $689
