RedmiBook 13

Familiar appearance, different screens

Whether it is RedmiBook 14, RedmiBook 14 sharp dragon version, RedmiBook 14 enhanced version or the latest RedmiBook 13, the same design language is used on the A side of the fuselage. The slogan "Redmi DESIGNED BY XIAOMI" also appears on the body A of RedmiBook 13, so the RedmiBook series has formed a more unified style in design, and "Redmi DESIGNED BY XIAOMI" is one of the labels of RedmiBook notebooks.

 
Redmi DESIGNED BY XIAOMI

For a long time, a number of RedmiBook products have gained a large number of users by virtue of solid workmanship and conscientious use of materials, and this excellent gene has also been extended to RedmiBook 13. What the editor gets is the classic moonlight silver color matching, and the fuselage is made of metal with outstanding texture. After more than 500 sandblasting adjustments, the exquisite frosted texture can be felt when the fingers touch the fuselage.


At the same time, the appearance design of the whole machine is more round and smooth, and the four corners adopt wedge-shaped edge-closing design, which makes the four sides of RedmiBook 13 more thin and exquisite. With the metal grooves polished on the front, it is easy to open and close with one hand. Through sophisticated design, the RedmiBook 13 all-metal lightweight fuselage is only 1.23kg and the front of the fuselage is smaller than a piece of A4 paper. It can be put into a vegetable bag when you go out, so it is no longer a "heavy burden" to take your computer out.


Xiaomi brought Xiaomi MIX, to consumers in 2016, which ushered in the era of full-screen smartphones, and the editor also acquired a MIX, at that time. At that time, it always attracted a lot of people's attention. Now full-screen mobile phones have become commonplace, and full-screen notebooks have come into our daily work and life.

In keeping with the trend of the times, Redmi brings a more extreme comprehensive screen in RedmiBook 13, with an ultra-narrow edge design on the B side of the body and a 13.3-inch 1080p full HD anti-glare screen with a screen share of 89%. In order to protect this screen from infringement, it uses a customized capsule protection framework, which is sturdy and reliable, and has passed the 50kg multi-point stress test, so that it is no longer afraid that the early summit in Beijing will crush the computer.

At present, the top, left and right frames of many full-screen notebooks on the market can be very narrow, but they still have a big chin. In order to solve this problem on RedmiBook 13, it uses Bent180 °packaging technology, which folds the screen circuit board to the back of the screen and compresses the width of the lower frame to 9.96mm, making the full screen more worthy of the name. Unfortunately, RedmiBook 13, like other RedmiBook products, still does not have a camera in pursuit of a narrower frame design, but the laptop camera is not used frequently, and the camera-free design prevents privacy disclosure to some extent.

In addition, the rebound strength and feel of the RedmiBook 13 keyboard are relatively good, and there is no loose feeling when typing every day. The D side is equipped with a large area of heat dissipation hole, which can effectively control the machine temperature when used with the cooling fan. The side of the fuselage is also equipped with 2 USB 3.1s, full-size HDMI and 3.5mm ear holes, so you don't need to carry a converter when you go out.



The 10th generation of Intel Core i7 is blessed to meet the needs of work, office and entertainment

The RedmiBook 13 is equipped with the tenth generation of Intel Core i7 Mel 10510U processor and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 independent graphics card. Xiaobian gets the highest configuration, which uses i7Mu10510U with 8GB DDR4 2666MHz memory. This processor is the successor model of i7Mui 8565U, which has been improved on the basis of the previous generation. The full-core Rui frequency can reach 4.3 GHz, and the single-core maximum Rui frequency can reach 4.9GHz. At the same time, it has also achieved a balance in terms of performance and power consumption, and has become the standard processor for many brands of high-end lightweight books.


NVIDIA GeForce MX250 is also everyone's familiar face. RedmiBook 13 is equipped with a full blood version of MX250, adopts Pascal architecture, TDP 25W, has 2GB GDDR5 memory, and is able to run mainstream online games such as "League of Legends" and "Fortnite".


The editor uses two mainstream running software, PCMark 10 and 3DMark, to test the performance of RedmiBook 13. Among them, the score of PCMark 10 is 3910 and the score of 3D Mark is 1249. In terms of score, it is easy to deal with daily work and meet the needs of office entertainment in leisure time. With 512GB SATA SSD, you can read and write data quickly, making the boot and software run faster.



Light and thin books will face a very important problem, that is, heat dissipation, especially the RedmiBook 13 in such a thin body also installed i7mur10510U and NVIDIA GeForce MX250 unique display, but also need a good heat dissipation system to drain the heat out of the fuselage faster, so as not to cause the processor to reduce the frequency and affect the user experience.



In order to test the heat dissipation, the editor uses FurMark to test the single roaster. Due to the direct baking machine after running points, the temperature of the fuselage in front of the baking machine is 35.6C. After more than ten minutes, the highest temperature of the fuselage is 45.9C. RedmiBook 13 performs well in the temperature control of the fuselage. This is because it uses a customized 0.1mm ultra-thin "wing" fan and uses a new sLCP space-grade material. Compared with the traditional 50-blade plastic fan, the "wing" fan has 74 blades, which can provide more wind while keeping quiet during operation, and cooperate with the 6mm diameter double heat pipe design and 100% all-copper heat dissipation module to form a "hurricane" professional heat dissipation system, leaving RedmiBook 13 in such a light and thin fuselage. It also has excellent heat dissipation effect.

Locate the mobile office center and fully integrate into the big ecology of Xiaomi AIoT

At the annual meeting of Xiaomi on January 11 this year, Lei Jun said that the core strategy of Xiaomi for the next five years is "mobile + AIoT" twin engines, while Xiaomi should firmly fight a protracted war. Now, RedmiBook 13 has become a mobile office center through a series of hardware and software optimizations.


First of all, thanks to Xiaomi mutual transmission, in the RedmiBook 14 Ruilong version, the author has already experienced the "Smart + connected" application on laptops. Thanks to this function, the multi-terminal transmission between notebooks and mobile phones is realized, and the files transferred at the same time are unlimited in format, quantity and size, and can also be transferred in the state of no network, allowing users to bid farewell to the data line completely. to achieve wireless information exchange.

When transferring files using RedmiBook 13, as long as you open the Smart + connected app on the desktop, you can drag and drop the file, or click on the file / folder you want to send, and right-click "transfer to each other using Xiaomi". If you want to use your phone to send files to RedmiBook 13, simply turn on the "Xiaomi transfer" function on the top menu, and then find RedmiBook 13 on the file sharing page to transfer files.


It is understood that all models after the RedmiBook 14 sharp dragon version will be pre-installed with the "Smart Internet" application, which can use the Xiaomi intertransmission function, and the previous model users will need to download the "Smart Internet" application on their own. After the editor installs the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14 with Smart Internet, it is easy to transfer files to and from RedmiBook 13.

Although RedmiBook 13 is not equipped with fingerprint unlocking, it can also be unlocked without inductance through the sensing key function based on Modern Standby technology. The computer can be unlocked using Xiaomi bracelet 3, and the screen will be locked automatically when people leave, ensuring data and privacy security.

Bottom line
