Xiaomi prepping laptop with magnesium-lithium enclosure

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is reportedly working on a new laptop with a chassis made of magnesium-lithium alloy. DigiTimes heard the notebook will arrive later this year and claims the chassis will be made by a China-based joint-venture established by Taiwan-based thermal management solution provider TaiSol Electronics and Japan-based ShinSho.

While magnesium-alloy is more expensive than aluminium, it has the advantage of being very sturdy yet a lot lighter than aluminium. A magnesium-lithium alloy with 10 percent lithhium has a density of just 1.4g/cm³, versus 2.7g/cm³ for aluminium.

ODM production of this particular laptop will be handled by Inventec, which was also one of the two providers Xiaomi used last year for its first laptops.
