It seems Xiaomi is keen to produce every type of hardware you can think of, now adding a gaming laptop to its roster of devices.

The aptly named Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop is the company's first foray into performance laptops - up until now Xiaomi has only made 12.5-icnh, 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch ultrabooks.

The Mi Gaming Laptop is a 15.6-inch device with a 7th gen Intel Core i7 or i5 CPU, a 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD and either an Nvidia GTX 1060 or an Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti. The more capable i7/GTX1060 model comes with 16GB of RAM, while the i5/1050Ti units will have 8GB.

That cooling comes at the expense of weight - the Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop weighs a pigly 2.7kg - that's quite a lot more than contemporary rivals from Asus or MSI.
