Conclusion – Which one you should buy?

As Mi Notebook is recently launched so there are no reviews of it by the customers. Let sometimes passed and read the users reviews on various e-commerce sites like Amazon or Flipkart (India). Apple has made the trust between laptop users with their elegant design and now others are trying to imitate him. Although Mi notebook price is much lesser then all of three laptops we compared above but the trust factor that Apple gained from its users is bigger.

If you are planning to buy any ultra light weight & thinner laptop in less price then currently you should go for Apple Macbook Air. Thinkpad X1 is very costly and in that price you could get more RAM & Storage capacity Apple MacBook.
