The 2019 Mi Notebook Pro takes inspiration from its predecessor with a minimalistic design, and a logo at the front. It comes with a dark grey finish on a metal body and the package measures 19.9mm in terms of thickness. The Mi Notebook Pro (2019) also comes with a dual fan cooling system and heat pipes for excellent temperature management. It has dual 3W large cavity speakers.
As for ports, the new high-end Mi laptop has two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet port, HDMI interface, and a headset jack along with a 3-in-1 card reader as well. It’s fair to say that this is a minimal upgrade over the 2018 version of the Mi Notebook Pro with Xiaomi mainly making marginal improvements along with a processor upgrade on the new version. This was also the case with the Mi Notebook Air 2019.
