Xiaomi already sells smartphones, tablet, smart TVs, fitness trackers, hoverboards and more, but there’s still no laptop in the Chinese company’s expansive lineup. Now it looks like the long-rumored Mi Notebook may finally be ready to launch with the first leaked photo unexpectedly hitting the web on Friday.

The Mi Notebook pictured above looks a lot like Apple’s MacBook series so let’s get that out of the way first. It feature a sleek aluminum design that’s all too familiar, and the only noticeable difference is the company’s logo. And, to be honest, it looks so similar this could be a simple Photoshop job, too. Xiaomi’s been called out for copying Apple in the past, but it has also produced some unique designs with its recent products so this comes as a bit of a letdown.

According to TechWeb, the new laptop will run Windows 10 and comes in two different sizes, though the report only mentions a 12.5-inch model. It’s allegedly set to launch this sometime this summer, which could mean anytime from later this month to September. Xiaomi has been teasing a big event coming up in July, so maybe we’ll get a closer look at the Mi Notebook then. In the meantime, we’d take this latest leak with a grain of salt.
