The laptop packs Intel’s latest 11th-Gen Tiger Lake H-series processors (Core i5-11300H or Core i7-11370H) with Iris Xe graphics, either 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 3200MHz, and 512GB of NVMe solid-state storage. The Ultra variant packs a 70Whr battery with 65W fast charging support via USB Type-C.
The Mi Notebook Pro features the same Aluminum alloy chassis, but it has a smaller form factor.

On the inside, the laptop comes with the same Intel 11th-Gen Tiger Lake processors with Iris Xe graphics, 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 RAM, and 512GB of NVMe storage.

For wireless connectivity, the laptops offer Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1.
