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 the 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 means cheap. Windows alternatives can be found in the 14-inch business notebook segment and among 13-inch ultrabooks. Prices range from significantly cheaper devices to notebooks that are even more expensive.

1st

Lenovo ThinkPad T470
Lenovo ThinkPad T470

 

It is Lenovo once again, who delivers the most convincing competitor for the MacBook Pro 13. The ThinkPad T470 is one of the top models of the famous business line-up. Depending on the configuration, it costs about 1600 Euros (~$1793). If desired, it features an integrated LTE module, the usual high quality ThinkPad keyboard, many security features, good battery runtimes and even a three-year warranty.

Well, the display could have more accurate colors, and the sound of the built-in speakers could be better. In addition, it is 300 g (~10.6 oz) heavier than the MacBook Pro 13. Nevertheless, the ThinkPad T470 is a very good alternative to Apple's mobile computers.

2nd

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

The 2017 edition of Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon is also a worthy competitor to Apple's MacBook Pro 13: Its advantages are a slim case with perfect build quality, excellent input devices, high performance and long battery runtimes. As in many modern and slim notebooks, adapters are required since the device comes with only USB-C ports. At least Lenovo includes several adapters.

It is much more disappointing that the device gets quite hot and the fan is quite loud at the same time. Maintenance is also limited. However, the MacBook Pro 13 also shows many of these disadvantages. Therefore, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon can be a real alternative. However, you should also consider the steep price.

3rd

Razer Blade 2017
Razer Blade 2017

The Razer Blade 2017 is quite light (1.8 kg/~4 lb) for a gaming notebook, but it is noticeably heavier than the Apple MacBook Pro 13. If you can live with this, you will get mobile gaming in a slim and stylish case, a dedicated GeForce GTX1060 and even a matte display. Another advantage of the Razer Blade 2017 is that it features many interfaces and you will not frequently need adapters. However, an SD card reader is missing. This is disappointing and absurd. In addition, the display is quite dark and the device gets very loud under load. You might be willing to ignore the disadvantages in view of the very good battery runtimes.

The Razer Blade 2017 is also not an alternative for everyone because of its steep price. However, those who want gaming performance and can live with the mentioned differences will get a very good mobile companion.

4th

Dell Latitude 14 E5470
Dell Latitude 14 E5470

The Dell Latitude 14 E5470 represents the classic and slightly heavier business laptop in our Top 5. 1.9 kg (~4.2 lb) is quite heavy compared to the MacBook Pro 13's 1.3 kg (~29 lb). On the other hand, you will get a very good notebook, a simple, yet functional design, many security features and passable battery runtimes of 7:12 hours.

You can connect a docking station and will get many interfaces. If you do not mind the weight, you will get a great business notebook for about 1000 Euros (~$1120) or even significantly less (other configurations).

5th

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.

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 no longer necessarily the most expensive notebook in our comparison.

Acer TravelMate P658-G2
Acer TravelMate P658-G2

The Acer TravelMate P658-G2 features a plain, yet stylish aluminum case. In addition, the case is stable and hardly attracts fingerprints. Its matte display, three-year warranty, and the good battery life are further pros. However, the display could be brighter and more evenly lit. In addition, an annoying whining noise is audible from the inside in several scenarios. It is handy that you can, for example, replace drives via a maintenance hatch.

Since it even comes with a dedicated graphic card, you can play less demanding games on the Full HD screen. All things considered, the P658-G2 is a solid companion, which is significantly cheaper than the MacBook Pro 15.

Gigabyte Aero 15
Gigabyte Aero 15

Recently, gaming notebooks have become increasingly important alternatives to Apple's MacBook Pros. Primarily this is due to the fact that it is possible to pack relatively high gaming performance into very slim and light cases nowadays. This is what Gigabyte does in the Aero 15. The GeForce GTX 1060 is actually capable of running current games in Full HD without stuttering. In addition, the device does not weigh much more than the Windows alternatives from the business range. However, Apple's MacBook Pro 15 is still slightly lighter.

The Aero 15 can optionally come in a brightly colored case. In any case, the chassis is stable and the build quality is high-end. The performance is excellent. In addition, the laptop delivers a good battery life and a good and even matte display. The connectivity is decent, too. Thus, this gaming laptop really deserves a place in this list.

One of the best alternatives to the 15-inch MacBook also comes from Lenovo. The ThinkPad T570 is the direct successor and a close relative to the ThinkPad T560. As in the last year, the price range of Lenovo's high-end ThinkPad is very wide: There are models which exceed 2000 Euros (~$2241) by far, and devices 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. Unfortunately, the battery life is only average in comparison to the predecessor. Lenovo offers several supplement batteries, which allow extending the battery life.

It should not happen in this price range that the power adapter does not have a sufficiently high capacity, which causes very long recharging times, and that the case gets very hot. In view of this, you might still want to consider the predecessor.

Dell XPS 15

With the new Dell XPS 15, you can even play simple games, thanks to an Nvidia graphic card. The device with a high-end case and compact size also has a lot to offer otherwise: fast Wi-Fi, maintainability, a matte display with good contrast, and decent speakers.

The color coverage is not perfect out-of-the-box, but it can be significantly improved by calibration. The battery runtimes could also be longer. Those of you who are looking for an elegant and slim 15-inch device, have hardly many alternatives to the Dell XPS 15. However, your budget has to be high enough...

HP EliteBook 850 G4
HP EliteBook 850 G4

HP's EliteBooks have been representing solid business devices for a long time. Once again, a representative makes it into our alternative list for Apple's MacBooks Pro: the HP EliteBook 850 G4. Its high-end and stable case packs largely high-end input devices and components which make high performance and decent battery life possible. In addition, the case temperature always remains comfortable without the fan getting too loud. In addition, a 3-year warranty is included.

Is there still something which can be criticized? Yes. While the display is quite bright and matte, its black value is much too high and the viewing angles are too narrow. It cannot keep up with Apple's Retina displays in any way. In addition, maintenance requires a lot of effort. This is really too bad, since otherwise, the HP EliteBook 850 G4 is a worthy rival of Apple's MacBook Pro 15.
