The best alternatives for Macbook Pro? Check our 3 proposals


Macbook Pro is a great computer. You can read a lot about its advantages and disadvantages. But what if we are used to Windows and we can’t imagine the change of operation system or we just can’t afford Apple products?

There are many alternatives and they don’t differ from MacBook in relation to quality and efficiency. I present you  three proposals, which fulfill some conditions:

  • Intel core i7 – processor, 8MB RAM
  • Display resolution higher than full HD
  • Great battery life

HP Spectre x360

HP Spectre x360 13-w071nw

One of the best ultrabooks offered by HP. Great parameters, light construction and a possibility of using it in tablet mode – these are basic advantages. Its efficiency is also comparable to MacBook. Unfortunately it doesn’t look as nice as Apple product.

+ efficiency
+ weight, size
+ battery life
– worse display than in Macbook
– not very attractive appearance (subjective opinion)

Dell XPS 13

Dell Notebook XPS 13

In my opinion it’s one of the best ultrabooks in the market. Great display, top components and good guarantee conditions offered by Dell are basic advantages. Additionally this model has a really thin display frame, that is why the laptop is smaller than other ones with the same display size.

+ great display with a very thin frame
+ convertible version
+ good efficiency
+ door-to-door guarantee (without any additional costs)
– battery life worse than in Macbook

Lenovo Yoga 910

Lenovo Yoga 910

The cheapest alternative for Macbook. Excellent display, top components and aluminimum unibody-chassis are basic advantages. Its efficiency is also comparable to competition. A small number of ports and only one usb 2.0.  (2xUSB3.0). Additionally there is a possibility of using touch screen.

+ appearance
+ excellent display
+ battery life
+ price
– loud when overloaded
– 2xUSB3.0
– like in Macbook- expensive USB adapters->HDMI

 Short summary

As you can see, you can find a good alternative for MacBook. What’s worth emphasizing, each of the computers mentioned above is cheaper and has a good quality. All of them have touch screen, so if you want to use such a device as a tablet, consider my proposals. Do you know any better alternatives? Write them in comments 🙂
