Missing Features in Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition

Back-lit Keyboard In reality in India we can expect the power cut at any time and if you dint have any inverter or power backup at that time then it will be very difficult to work on the notebook if you dint have back-lit keyboard

Integrated Webcam Now a days the laptops / notebooks are coming with integrated webcam .Even you are getting the external webcam as part of this notebook its a big drawback in this product that the webcam is not integrated.

SD Card Slot Having a SD card is really important for anybody who in to videography / photography, so thats why i think it should have been in the MI Notebook aswell

USB Type-C Port There is only one USB Type-C Port available in the MI Notebook and that is also come in the variant Intel i7 which is costing INR 59999. In coming days we are going to see more and more accessories are coming in with Type-C port that is why missing out one port in all other MI notebook variant was bigger mistake

Upgradable RAM Another missing feature in MI notebook is lack of option for upgrading the . Either 16 GB of RAM instead of 8 GB or extra slot for upgrading the RAM should have been included in both variant

Gaming CPU MX350 GPU is an basic entry level gaming GPU not going to help you on playing latest AAA games with good settings.
So you can only enjoy the lite gaming in both variant of these MI Notebooks.
