Xiaomi isn’t the only Chinese company launching a new 13 inch ultra-thin notebook featuring an Intel Skylake processor, NVIDIA graphics, and a $750 price tag.

On the same day that Xiaomi revealed the Mi Notebook Air, PC maker Lenovo started taking orders for a new notebook called the Lenovo Air 13 Pro.

Like Xiaomi’s 13 inch laptop, the Lenovo Air 13 Pro features a 1920 x 1080 pixel display, weighs about 2.8 pounds, and measures about 0.6 inches thick.

It has an IPS display, features an Intel Core i5-6200U processor and NVIDIA GeForce 940MX graphics, and 4GB of RAM and 256GB of PCIe solid state storage. The notebook supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1 and features a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, and a USB Type-C port as well as a headset jack, dual microphones, and stereo 1W speakers.

Other features include a 46 Whr battery, a 720p webcam, an SDXC card reader, and a backlit keyboard.

All told, the laptop isn’t exactly identical to the Xiaomi Mi Notebook Air… it has less RAM and a slightly less powerful processor, but the same graphics card and a slightly larger battery.

While it’s unclear if this exact model will be offered outside of China, the Lenovo Air 13 Pro also looks pretty similar… because aside from some minor changes in the port arrangement, the laptop looks an awful lot like the $750 Lenovo IdeaPad 710S which the company first unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in January.
