Key features of Xiaomi Air 12
As the name suggests, Xiaomi Air 12 has a 12.5-inch IPS screen which is Full HD. This means that you will be presented with more than good image detail, wide viewing angles, and vibrant colors. The thin chassis hides a Skylake processor – Intel Core m3-6Y30 dual-core (0.9GHz – 2.2GHz). This ULV CPU is paired with Intel HD Graphics 515 GPU, 4 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of SSD storage. As you may guess, this combination of hardware provides the needed performance for your everyday tasks and is also suitable for office work.
Additionally, the 1.29 cm thin construction also comes with a 37 Wh battery (5000 mAh) and while this may not sound like a lot. Think again – it is a 12.5-inch ultrabook with an ULV processor, which uses passive cooling. Considering the latter facts, a 37 Wh battery unit is not that small, is it? Also commendable is the fact that Xiaomi has managed to fit a USB Type-C port and a full-sized HDMI port, too.
Last but not of least importance is the fact that this machine comes with Windows 10 OS pre-installed so that you will not have to spend more on buying an OS. For more information or to purchase, you can use this link: Xiaomi Air 12.
