    This is an interesting move as the likes of Sony and Samsung are reducing their PC laptop business activity.
    Plus Lenovo and HP have been quoted as saying that the laptop market is "aggressively competitive".
    It is suggested that with the above specs and pricing Xiaomi could be as disruptive in the laptop PC industry as it has been in the smartphone arena.
    Hmm, has Xiaomi been that disruptive? I mean I've seen vodcasts from the US saying that their products are "interesting" but difficult to get a hold of. Similarly, I've yet to see anyone (other than eBayers) pushing Xiaomi over here. So I'd (charitably) chalk them up as "China only, interesting, but not significant".

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
