New year new Laptop. -
Originally I was looking into getting an Asus Zenbook because that was the only laptop on the market that was made out of metal other than the MacBook. Then I started looking into the Dell XPS 15 but that was way out of my price range. I came across a Website called GearBest last year where I purchased my second 3D Printer and I found a company called Xiaomi that apparently is very popular in China. The price was solid at $1150 shipped and an all aluminum build like I wanted. After watching a documentary made by VICE about Shenzhen China I now understood why there is such a difference in price and I was hooked on Chinese products. Quality does not need to be sacrificed. What I bought is a Xiaomi Notebook Pro with an 8th Gen i5, 8GB Ram, 256 GB SSD running Windows 10 and a 8 hour battery life. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Looks very similar to a MacBook Pro. Now if you love iOS than this is not for you. But if you're a Windows guy like me and you want a well built laptop I highly recommend this laptop and brand.
