Anyone with experience installing on Xiaomi's new laptops? Anticipating some driver issues. Ill risk converting the new notebook into a (very good looking) doorstop for the sake of the forum if Im the first

Hmm I'm quite interested in this.

They make some nice looking laptop, if there are not much issues with Linux in general I will consider buying :P

haven't started yet - its a great laptop and integrates with phone and peripherals. windows single language pack only (and in china). just bought a phone by xiaomi. runs their android distro, unlocked out the box and easy to root. but they went with windows on their notebooks....

Are there any rumors or tests from the Chinese speaking forums already ?

Haven't even heard or read about Xiaomi Laptops yet :?

They're expanding for "our common good" (affordable, cheap - yet up-to-date hardware) - I like that :)

Well here's a review of Xiaomi laptop in case anyone not aware of what we're talking about

Apart from being a macbook clone, which may not necessarily be a bad thing...one thing I really hate about most laptops now a days is the macbook inspired butterfly keyboard.

I'm not sure how you guys feel about a keyboard like that but I'm a programmer myself and I often have finger strains due to short key travel when typing for long periods.

Only laptop that I think still has classic tactile feeling keyboards are the Lenovos, but boy are they expensive :P
