Redmi recently debuted in the Indian laptop market with RedmiBook e-Learning Edition and RedmiBook 15 Pro. Here’s a review of the affordable e-Learning edition.
The laptop features a robust and minimalistic flat design with a matte finish, which seems to be inspired by MacBooks. However, it has a polycarbonate build, which is a con.
The RedmiBook e-Learning Edition features a large 15.6-inch display with an anti-glare coating and FHD resolution. Viewing angles and colour accuracy need improvement.
The laptop features a chiclet-style keyboard with a scissor mechanism and a 1.5mm travel distance, which enhances the experience. However it misses out on a backlight.
The trackpad is bigger than the ones found on the Mi NoteBooks, which helps in comfortable navigation. It also comes with support for gestures.
Redmi has fitted two speakers of 2W each on either side of the laptop. They are tuned by DTS audio and offer decent output.
The 11th-gen Intel Core i3 processor is backed by Intel UHD graphics, 8GB RAM, and up to 512GB SSD storage. The performance is good for light to medium usage.
The RedmiBook e-Learning Edition runs Windows 10 Home. It is also upgradeable to Windows 11, which is a bonus.
The RedmiBook e-Learning Edition features a 46Wh battery with 65W fast charging. The battery lasted 10 hours on medium usage and charged fully within an hour.
The laptop features two USB 3.2 gen 1 ports, HDMI 1.4 port, USB 2.0 Type-A port, a 3.5mm audio jack, SD Card slot, RJ-45 port, and Kensington key lock.
The RedmiBook e-Learning Edition is great for students who are not likely to push it to its limits. If you are a professional looking for a powerful machine, give this one a skip.
