The screen measures 13.3 inches, like the Apple computer , and has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels, an aspect ratio of 16:10, a standard brightness of 300 nits and 100% coverage of the sRGB color profiles.
Equipped with the Intel Core i5-10210Y processor with Turbo Boost up to 4.5 GHz and 512 GB SSD , the RedmiBook Air 13 is available in two editions, with 8 GB or 16 GB RAM.
