Xiaomi has introduced a couple of products in the laptop market including the Mi Notebook Pro and Mi Notebook Air and not it seems that the company is entering into the gaming segment of the laptop market with the Xiaomi Mi Gaming laptop. That is the actual name of the product if you were wondering.
The Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop is powered by an Nvidia GTX 1060 which should be more than enough to run modern games at 1080p. Other than that you get a 7th generation core i7 CPU with 16 GB of RAM. The laptop has a 15.6-inch screen and the brushed aluminum body for that premium feel that you expect from a $1400 laptop. Keeping in mind the price, you are getting some decent specs.
For storage, you get a 256GB NVMe SSD, and a 1TB hard disk, which should be plenty for your gaming on the go needs. A gaming laptop would be incomplete without RGB lighting and so the Xiaomi Mi Gaming laptop comes with an RGB keyboard.
If you are not interested in spending that much on a gaming laptop then there is a GTX 1050 Ti version as well which will cost less. With this version, you get 8 GB of RAM instead of 16 and a 128 GB SSD. HDD capacity is still the same so you do have mass storage, only your primary boot drive will be affected.
