Despite a very limited product range, Apple has managed to offer notebooks for almost every field of application. So far, they have strictly kept out of the budget range. When looking for comparable Windows computers we quickly realized that this is rather difficult and only 5 model series offered any alternatives. Minor compromises are definitely necessary, be it size, display resolution, weight, or the hardware used. Otherwise, using Bootcamp Windows on Mac computers is the only alternative left. Since many advantages of Apple notebooks will be lost if you do so, it is probably in exceptional cases that this would be a better option.

Editors' Comments

The new MacBook Pro 13 is available with optional OLED bar, which aims to ease the use of compatible programs. Even without this bar, Apple offers a slim and powerful notebook, which, however, is by no way cheap. Windows alternatives can be found in the 14-inch business notebook segment and among 13-inch ultrabooks. The prices range from significantly cheaper devices to notebooks that are even more expensive.

1st

Lenovo ThinkPad T460s
Lenovo ThinkPad T460s

It is Lenovo once again, who delivers the most convincing competitor for the MacBook Pro 13. The ThinkPad T460s is the unofficial flagship of the famous business line-up. It comes with many options and is available from 1400 to way over 2000 Euros (~$1603 to ~$2290) depending on the configuration. If desired, it features an integrated LTE module, a very light case with only 1.3 kg (~2.9 lb), the usual high quality ThinkPad keyboard, many security features and even a three-year warranty.

Well, the display could be brighter, and the connectivity should include a USB C port. Moreover, the ThinkPads are traditionally rather more decently designed than designer pieces. All things considered, the ThinkPad T460s is a great business notebook, which more than deserves the title "Best MacBook Alternative".

2nd

Dell XPS 13
Dell XPS 13

Thanks to its small dimensions and low weight, the Dell XPS 13 is not only a suitable rival for the MacBook Pro 13, but also for the MacBook Air 13. This year's model is still a contender for Apple notebooks. It can score with impressive stability and great input devices. While the Full HD display does not shine in brightness and color coverage, it is still a good display. A QHD display with touchscreen is also offered. In Apple notebooks, you will look for a touch-sensitive display in vain.

3rd

Actually, the Acer TravelMate P648 is a business device, but it also is suitable for demanding schoolwork and university students. The handy 14-inch device houses a fast SSD, a contrast-rich display, and great input devices. The battery lasts above 9 hours in the Wi-Fi test. This should be long enough for a day at the university or school.

Optionally, an LTE modem is available in case the Wi-Fi network is unreliable in the auditorium. However, the case is not as slim and light as a subnotebook's and the design is quite plain. If you can accept this, you'll get a great notebook for work.

4th

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Lenovo has managed to create an even lighter device: The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is one of the lightest and slimmest notebooks in our comparison with a weight of only 1.2 kg (~2.65 lb). However, it is even more expensive than the ThinkPad T460s and hardly available for less than 2000 Euros ($2290). In return, you will get a very mature notebook with good input devices, long battery life, high performance, and three years warranty.

The ThinkPad T460s also provides all that, yet for a better price and several aspects, for example the keyboard, are even better. Its bulkier case makes more upgrade options possible. The ThinkPad X1 Carbon is primarily interesting for those who do not need to save money, and look for a very slim and light business device for the briefcase.

5th

Dell Latitude 14 7000
Dell Latitude 14 7000

The Dell Latitude 14 7000 represents the classic and slightly heavier business laptop in our Top 5. However, the laptop from Dell's premium business class can easily exceed 2000 Euros (~$2290) depending on the configuration. Thanks to its slightly bulkier case, the Latitude 14 is also the easiest to maintain and certainly brings an excellent keyboard and a good display, which, however is glossy in the touch variants.

A wide range of connection interfaces, the high performance, silent and cool operation and the fast Wi-Fi are further advantages of the Dell Latitude 14 7000. However, you have to accept a slightly limited battery life of 5:46 hours in the Wi-Fi test, which might be too short for some users.

Discussion

 

 

 

Apple has also revised the MacBook Pro 15. Windows alternatives can be found among powerful multimedia all-round devices of the upper class or in the business segment. And here, too, a lot has happened in the past years: In the meanwhile, the MacBook Pro 15 has to compete with many rivals and it is not necessarily the most expensive notebook in our comparison any longer.

1st

The Toshiba Tecra Z50-C is a good offer for a high price. While the business notebook is not as elegant as the subnotebooks in our top list, it can score points with good connectivity and a premium 15.6 inch display. In addition, energy demand and, therewith, temperature increase and system noise are quite low. Thus, the laptop is perfectly suitable for use in the library. The input devices are great. However, several cutting-edge interfaces are missing and the speakers are quite poor. In addition, you should consider expanding the warranty since the standard warranty is only 12 months.

One of the best alternatives to the 15-inch MacBook also comes from Lenovo. The ThinkPad T560 can easily exceed 3000 Euros (~$3434), thanks to extra features, and faster components. However, there are also models for 1400 Euros (~$1602). All models share the flawless ThinkPad keyboard, many security features, and very good battery runtimes. As in all ThinkPads, the design is functional, yet very robust.

Slightly more modern USB interfaces would have been advantageous for the notebook. Thanks to its high system performance it is a worthy competitor to Apple's top dog.

3rd

At first glance, HP has made a very competitive bundle with the EliteBook 850 G3: A stylish metal case meets high-end input devices, fast hardware, and low noise and temperature emissions. What else does a business customer wish for? Well, we had actually expected a better display in view of our configuration's price (about 1700 Euros, ~$1932). While the Full HD panel impresses with its sharp and bright image, the TN panel makes for low contrast and narrow viewing angles. Moreover, the colors could be better.

In return, the notebook delivers high performance and a decent Wi-Fi battery life of 7 hours and includes 3 years of warranty.

The first buyers of the Dell XPS 15 faced bugs and BIOS updates. Too bad, since Dell has damaged the reputation of their actually elegant, slim, and light 15-inch device with that. Today, the core components work without any problems. However, the battery runtimes still cannot keep up with that of the Apple MacBook Pro 15.

One of the advantages of the Dell XPS 15 is the case: The small display frame in particular is appealing. The display itself is also impressive and can be easily calibrated. Thanks to a GeForce GTX 960M, it can run games, the fan is quiet and maintainability and connectivity are also good.

If you are not dependant on long battery runtimes, you should consider the Dell XPS 15 as a MacBook alternative.

5th

Although Acer's business notebook for about 1200 Euros (~$1374) does not have a great design, you'll get a lot of value for your money and it does not have real weaknesses: The TravelMate P658 M 537B comes with a solid case, many interfaces and security features, and can be easily expanded. The IPS display is bright and the battery life is long.

Only the sound system is not satisfying and the battery cannot be removed from the outside. However, we can still recommend the Acer TravelMate P658 tothose with a low budget as a relatively cheap alternative to the MacBook Retina 15.
