The portable filtering Xiaomi copying the Macbook Air
Xiaomi is one of the Chinese companies which is gaining attention more and more in recent months, for better and for worse. On the one hand the great success of its Android devices has enabled it to expand into other sectors. Furthermore, it is not doing any good to the topic we have from Chinese manufacturers.
And since China seems to only know out “tributes” that are too much like Apple products, and if recent rumors are true, this is just the beginning. A leaked images show that Xiaomi are preparing their own laptop and this is very much resemble the Macbook Air, both in its slim design and color.Only the orange company logo makes a difference.
Doing again Xiaomi
Inside you will have an Intel Core i7-4500U accompanied by 16 GB of RAM, all in a format 15 Inch 1080p; not bad hardware, but the best price would be around $ 499 if it would ideally positioned against the competition. Why buy an Air if we can get the same for less money, many will think so.
The problem is that the only reason Xiaomi can do this sort of thing is “diplomatic immunity” that China gives; as this device out of those boundaries (if it comes), it is expected that Apple will give full attention of his lawyers against this. From Xiaomi may think that does not matter anything, but if they really want to become an international reference sooner or later then they have to play with (or rather, USA) international rules, and that is when they can find a catalog compound clones which cause legal headaches.
Rumor has not lasted long. It has been confirmed that the pictures in this article are modified to show Xiaomi logo. The company prepares a laptop which is something that has been listening for a long time, but it seems we’ll have to keep waiting for confirmation.
