    Your table shows the Lenovo @ 4999RMB, but the table with the same spec shows it @ 5499RMB, typo?

    Also the Lenovo is covered in stickers and is nowhere near as sleek from the side:

    Seems like Xiaomi won this on first impressions - better spec (RAM) and nicer/cleaner design.

    Funny how both companies use the word "Air" to sell their products.

    I have no desire to buy anything from a Chinese company. A shame so few components and laptops are made elsewhere. Think before you buy.

    It says further down in the article, the Lenovo is currently listed with a discount for pre-orders, bringing it down to 4999.

    Nowhere near as clean design wise as the Xiaomi but its different looks are no bad thing.

    Although it is true that many poor quality products come from China, Xiaomi products are not typically part of that group. Xiaomi has proven themselves to make high quality products which is why many people regard a lot of their products as "Macbook" or "iPhone killers". Although I don't necessarily agree or disagree with this statement, it shows that Xiaomi, despite being a Chinese manufacturer, is still high quality.
