u cant use english because all windows 10 laptops in china are a special version of windows 10 which supposedly help chinese government monitor the devices, and you cannot use other languages on it. i lived in china and had a laptop there, and there is no way to change the language.

Hi, great vid, I recently bought this great laptop, my current problem is the chinese windows its pre-installed with.

My question are:
1. What version of windows 10 english are you using now? PRO 64bit?
2. How to access the chinese key? Can I still use the windows chinese key to activate to an english windows 10?
3. What windows version iso file to download from MS website to be able to use my chinese key if possible? windows 10 home?
4. Where can I download the right mi notebook pro drivers? are you required to install it or can the windows 10 OS download the drivers for you?
5. Would you recommend to do a fresh install a windows 10 64bit pro?

Thanks!!

ZesT MRIDEEP says:

Can you please do a guide on how to replace the thermal paste on the gpu and cpu? I wanna do this when i get it but there are no guides anywhere

Александр Мамошко says:

So maybe you know… when i7 16gb ram will be available?

MarkuzChronos Tech in HD says:

the latest zenbook is better than that..

Gong Qiyuan says:

If this laptop features TB3 and QHD display. I will get it. ( From the review of 8th core, TDP unlocked i7-8550u is at the same performance level of i7-7820hk, but you should do this on your own risk, mi book pro can run at 35 watts with acceptable heat ).

Bloodpact Guild says:

>Calls it “pro”
>Literally everything about it is consumer grade, right down to the OS
>Charges according to the prior and not the latter

Samuracom Technology says:

That coupon code has expired!!!!

joro353 says:

i7 8th gen/16GB, dedicated GPU, excellent cooling, low noise levels, and premium materials for $1099 is a steal. The only thing of concern is support.
