In the introduction of the new Xiaomi 13 phones, it was noted that an important innovation is coming: the first desktop computer of the Asian company. And this is resolved and therefore, Xiaomi enters another segment where it has not had a presence in the market until now.
The name of the new equipment is Xiaomi Mini PC, which leaves no doubt that we are talking about a small device (especially 112x112x38mm) and this is, obviously, aimed at countering Apple’s Mac mini. But for this, he decided to bet on Windows 11, due to the positive experience that this Microsoft work has already had in its use on laptops.
Aesthetically, this model has a striking black color and square shape. aluminum to avoid problems with temperature (and associated sound). The truth is that there isn’t much surprise in what can be expected aesthetically, I’m expanding a lot of connections in the case (in addition to using Bluetooth 5.3 and WiFi 6). These are:
- Two HDMI connections
- Three USB Type-A 3.2 ports
- Two USB Type-C (Thunderbolt 4)
- A USB type A 2.0
- gigabit ethernet
- Headphone jack
The hardware of this Xiaomi desktop
The surprise came here as the vast majority of the data relates to the use of AMD components, but in the end Xiaomi decided to keep the usual way of working with computers and chose Intel. In this way, the processor is Core i5-1240P twelfth generation, capable of operating at a maximum frequency of 4.4 GHz. This provides excellent musculature when used in combination. 16GB RAM.
For storage, there has been a recourse to a decision. 512GB SSD which is more than enough to store information without having to constantly resort to the cloud. And by the way, it must be said that graphic It’s the one built into the processor itself, so no special one is used (which means games aren’t its maximum target). The thing is, we’re talking about something Intel Iris Xe more than solvent in normal use.
Price and availability
In the first case, it must be said that the news is very good, because in return this Xiaomi Mini PC costs the stock market about 505 euros, that’s not exactly ugly. Currently, there are no different versions according to colors or different memory possibilities – this is something that should not be overlooked. Additionally, you’ll have to wait for the company to verify (logically it does) whether this computer has left the borders of China.
