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.

The second edition of the TravelMate P648 features a significantly less spectacular design than for example: It is rather a normal work device than a design highlight. At the same time, the carbon-fiber reinforced plastic and aluminum convince with stability. Moreover, the device is quite cool and quiet. The TravelMate P648 delivers good performance. However, you have to accept a slightly spongy keyboard. University students and schoolchildren will get a powerful notebook. The unspectacular look is a matter of taste.

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.

Dell XPS 13

Thanks to its small dimensions and light weight, not only is the Dell XPS 13  a suitable rival for the Apple MacBook Pro 13, but also for the MacBook Air 13. This year you only get a processor update, and Dell will probably launch a new chassis at the CES next year. This does not sound like a lot, but the processor is much faster than before and the GPU is also a bit more powerful compared to the previous model. The surface temperatures are a bit higher at some spots, but it is still comfortable. Overall, the 2017 XPS 13 is still a great subnotebook and a serious contender, but you have to live with the glossy screen.

Have you already been waiting for a slim, stylish subnotebook for a long time? If so, Asus might have the right offer for you with the Zenbook UX3430UQ: the 14-inch device is an excellent high-end business subnotebook with great input devices, excellent display, low emissions and long battery life of 8:47 hours. Moreover, it features a fingerprint sensor and TPM 2.0. However, the GeForce 940MX is dispensable. The iGPU variant for 1200 Euros might be the better choice for many users. It allows saving money and is certainly sufficient for everyday tasks.

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.

1st

Gigabyte Aero 15X

The Gigabyte Aero 15X replaces its sibling Aero 15. Differences are limited to the graphics card, because the Aero 15X features the GeForce GTX1070 Max-Q. You still get a lot of gaming performance in a very slim and comparatively lightweight chassis. However, the Apple MacBook Pro 15 is still a bit lighter.

You can get Aero 15X in a colorful case, which is well-built and sturdy. The performance is excellent, the battery runtime is long and you even get a matte panel. The port selection is decent as well, so this gamer really deserves a spot in this list.

Asus ZenBook Pro UX550VD

You might want to avoid the Asus ZenBook Pro UX550VD if you often use the webcam for video calls or the like: The VGA resolution is just outdated. Otherwise, however, Asus offers a really good multimedia device with a bright and matte screen, decent battery runtimes, good system performance, and really good speakers. We also like the aluminum chassis.

You should not be very sensitive to noise, because there is significant coil whine (at least on our model) and the SSD produces noise as well. This should not happen on an expensive laptop. You should test the laptop before the purchase if possible, but the ZenBook Pro UX550VD is certainly a good alternative to the MacBook Pro 15 thanks to its good aspects.

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.

Lenovo ThinkPad T570
Lenovo ThinkPad T570

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
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...
