A good productivity laptop?
Xiaomi Notebook Pro 120G seems like a great laptop, considering the features and specifications it provides for the price.
The Alder Lake Intel Core i5 12450H processor in the laptop is a competent one because it is not a U series processor that you would typically see in this segment of laptops. H series Intel processors are usually found in gaming laptops, which assures better performance than other productivity laptops on the market.
But the 120Hz display can be seen as a gimmick, and it won’t be much of use as you might not be using this laptop for hard-core gaming.
