6. Xiaomi Air 13 Notebook: Start on Clean slate
The laptop that went viral in the past years, Xiaomi Air 13 is here again. With a price range of $805, this is one of the go-to laptops in the market. We bet that this beauty right here will be featured in every list of top laptops available on the internet. And thus, that is why, after examining the notebook carefully, we have placed it in the list of 10 Best Chinese Laptops 2018 (Early).
Xiaomi surprises us with Air 13 laptop. It’s Intel i5 CPU is remarkable. The Dual-Core 2.3GHz can be overclocked Up to 2.8GHz. The GeForce GT 940MX Graphics Card can & will handle high-end games very well. Along with an 8GB RAM & 256GB storage capacity, it still has an expandable memory slot.

4. VOYO i7 Notebook: Elegant Performance
So, here’s a question. Is it really possible to get a gaming laptop under $1000, even under $750? Yes, it is. VOYO i7 Notebook is such a Chinese notebook that provides mid-end gaming performance under a stupendous price tag of $733.08. Furthermore, it’s an extremely light built for a 15.6-inch gaming machine as it weighs only 1.7kg and occupies a space of 37.50 x 24.50 x 1.80 cm. The 180mm thickness is exceptional making this 15.6-incher a sub-notebook instead. Despite being dedicated to gaming, the laptop is a pure metal beast. Things can get pretty hot while gaming because of that metal chassis. We recommend you to get a laptop cooling pad if possible.
Regarding performance, this machine blows all the above competitors in the list of top 10 Chinese laptops/notebooks of 2017. On the front, we have a simple yet enormous 15.6-inch Full-HD display. The 6th Generation of Intel Core i7 6500U categories it as a high-end notebook along with eight gigs of RAM and 1TB SATA HDD. The selling point is the GPU which is Nvidia GeForce 940MX (2GB). You might get a sub-notebook with this GPU under $750, but it won’t have a Core i7 6500U. However, the hardware is enough to do mid-level gaming such as running GTA 5 on medium settings, Witcher 3 on low, Watch Dogs 2 on medium, and some old games on the highest settings. The laptop could have been an absolute hit if VOYO had provided 4GB graphics memory.
Great performance along with a slim built is the reason why we have selected this notebook at no.4 in our list of 10 Best Chinese Laptops 2018 (Early).

- Nvidia GT 940MX
- Core i7 6500U
