Next year Xiaomi will be making its entry into the laptop market with a lineup of notebooks that promise a good price/performance ratio. DigiTimes received word that Intel is giving Xiaomi a special deal on its laptop processors, for every chip Xiaomi purchases, Intel will reportedly throw in a free tablet processor to grow its presence in the mobile market:
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.
