Xiaomi has become a major client that Intel is eagerly trying to secure. Following the adoption of Intel's Atom X5-Z8500 in its Xiaomi Tablet 2 launched in late-November, Xiaomi's upcoming notebooks are expected to use Intel's Haswell-based Core processors.
With Intel's discounts and Inventec's assistance, Xiaomi's notebooks have become competitive in both pricing and quality which will allow the China-based vendor to step on an equal footing against first-tier vendors such as Lenovo, Asustek Computer and Acer.
