[Q & A] Need a laptop for uni

I need a laptop for my uni course. I've always brought desktops because they're much harder to steal and I have never really had any need for a laptop.
Will Xiaomi be bringing out a laptop in the foreseeable future at all?

They have been doing laptops for quite a while now,under both Redmi and Xiaomi brands. The catch though is that they are not officially imported here, and nowadays grey imports are not the easiest.

I really rate the Xiaomi products and would love to get hold of one if I could. Any advice?

It's going to sound daft, as a Mi fan myself,, but I wouldn't recommend them unless officially imported. Laptops prices are all about the components,so no way to make a big price difference, unlike phones where manufacturers traditionally inflate prices, putting us in a good spot value-wise. So basically you'd be paying the same price spec for soecs (or actually more with VAT and import duties), but you'd get no local support, so if a problem develops, you're stuck. To boot,these tend to be made fof other countries,so wrong plugs, keyboards, software, the lot.

I hope Xiaomi brings all their laptops to England. I guess we will have to wait and see.

Absolutely. I was looking at their midranger gaming ones (2060/i7 based) as I was looking for one for my hobbies, and was really tempted. Would have bought it had it been sold here, as there were way too many details that made no sense (things like Windows in Chinese, which takes more than just language change to use properly, non UK keyboards, and of course no support short of sending it back the whole way). With tax and duty it went way above its local competitors, but had it been available here... Oh yes
