The Best Alternatives to the Apple MacBook Pro 16 and Pro 15

July 2020 Update. Apple's MacBook Pro 15 offers very high performance. But the world of Windows also has several interesting devices to offer in the area of high-performance 15-inch notebooks. Read on to find out more about our top competitors for Apple's high-end laptop.
Florian Schmitt (translated by Katherine Bodner),

Goodbye, 15-inch MacBook Pro, we’ve had a great time. You’ve been replaced by the MacBook Pro 16 that is supposed to put an end to the keyboard woes of yore.

The MacBook Pro 16 is Apple’s universal weapon in search of ultimate (Apple) notebook performance. It features hexa or even octa-core Intel processors supported by a dedicated AMD GPU, either a Radeon Pro 5300M or a 5500M. Both are mid-range GPUs offering enough performance for enjoying not too demanding games smoothly in FHD.

Prices start at $2,399 for the base model with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD and go all the way up to almost $7,000 for the fully-specced high-end model. Potential Windows competitors are thus other high-end multimedia and workstation laptops. The following Top 10 lists might provide some further insight:

Given that the MacBook Pro 15 is still on sale by various outlets brand-new and at reduced prices we are including it our comparison as well.

The following table contains potential MacBook Pro competitors running Windows that have been reviewed in the previous months by Notebookcheck. Devices introduced more recently are ranked above older ones in case of identical scores. The table can be sorted by clicking on the respective header columns, and it can be filtered as well.

1st – Dell XPS 15 9500

Dell’s XPS 15 is a staple in the world of 15-inch MacBook Pro competitors. The high-quality notebook features long battery life and can be configured to your individual liking. It comes with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a display with decent color accuracy, and is easy to upgrade.

Based on past experiences we would be hesitant in regard to the Core i9 SKU. The predecessor’s cooling system was overwhelmed by the Core i9, and the CPU in return not much faster than the Core i7. More details on this once we’ve had a Core i9 SKU in review.

Nevertheless, the Core i7 model offers more than enough power for demanding tasks, and is a great competitor to Apple’s largest MacBook Pro thanks to long battery life and high-quality speakers.

2nd- Lenovo ThinkPad P53

Lenovo ThinkPad P53

The Lenovo ThinkPad P53 is a traditional workstation laptop and thus much heavier than Apple’s MacBook Pro 16. Its case may be incredibly robust and of superb quality, but it lacks the MacBook Pro’s trendy styling and design. Audio quality is also mediocre at best, but in return it features an excellent keyboard, high GPU performance if required, great maintenance options, and an extensive manufacturer warranty.

As expected, a 4K display option is available, and the laptop can even be equipped with an OLED panel if so desired. We failed to find any major flaws with the ThinkPad P53, and it remains a worthy alternative to Apple’s MacBook Pro 16 as long as you don’t mind the weight.

3rd – Lenovo ThinkPad P1

Lenovo ThinkPad P1

The ThinkPad P1 is a high-end workstation made by Lenovo and a worthy alternative to the MacBook Pro 15. Its incredibly high-quality case, its excellent input devices, its plentiful connectivity, its great upgradeability, and its significantly improved GPU performance should be a very welcome update for all those users that are still working with the previous model. In addition, it can be equipped with up to 64 GB of RAM and comes with a three-year warranty in some countries by default. Additional benefits further reinforcing the high-quality first impression include its quiet cooler and its matte and very bright display.

Unfortunately, CPU performance is worse than on the 2018 ThinkPad P1, and the display fails to fully cover the sRGB color space. Battery life is also mediocre at best. However, given that its pros outweigh those few cons as well as the fact that for a workstation laptop, the P1 is surprisingly lightweight, it still deserves our full endorsement.

4th – Acer ConpectD 7

Acer ConceptD 7

Acer’s ConceptD series is a brand-new lineup of laptops for power users such as designers, video, audio, or photo editors. The Acer ConceptD CN715 secured a decent rating of 86 %, which allowed it to enter our Top 10 list. For around $2,000 you get a good-looking modern device with a level of performance akin to gaming notebooks.

If you are a spec-driven customer, you should keep in mind that you can get similarly equipped laptops that offer a much higher level of performance. The ConcentD’s CPU thermal-throttled heavily under load, and performance was reduced even further on battery. Its main strength is without a doubt the great 4K display with high color-space coverage.

5th – Lenovo ThinkPad T15

The ThinkPad T590 is dead, long live the ThinkPad T15. Despite the new name this year’s refresh is but a minor update that brings Wi-Fi 6 but sacrifices various connectivity options in return. The lack of a full-sized SD card reader might be something most users can deal with. However, the lack of AMD processors is much worse. After all, the AMD option turned out to be the better choice on all other Lenovo ThinkPad series notebooks.

What remains is a notebook with an excellent 4K display, great input devices, and a high-quality case but somewhat poor battery life on the 4K SKU in return.

6th – Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme is a very well-equipped notebook for various use cases. The display no longer forces users into a 4K vs. matte conundrum as Lenovo finally decided to offer a matte 4K display option that, unfortunately, turned out to be very poorly calibrated by default. Its input devices are excellent but were somewhat problematic in that they sporadically failed every now and then. Hopefully, Lenovo is going to address this soon.

In addition, we have the feeling that the modern and powerful components are too much for the cooling system to handle and are thus incapable of utilizing their full performance potential. The matte 4K display draws a lot of power, and you really need to be sure you need it instead of the much more energy-efficient and thus battery life prolonging 1080p display.

7th – Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition 2020

Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition 2020
Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition 2020

A true alternative to the MacBook Pro 16 has to be one thing first and foremost: modern, sleek, and good-looking. The Razer Blade 15 Studio Edition offers all that, plus a great 4K OLED touch display with good color-space coverage.

Unfortunately, the keyboard is still not able to keep up with the current MacBook Pro generation, and there are no storage upgrade options. In return, this mobile workstation offers a lot of graphics power, fast Wi-Fi, decent battery life, a robust metal case, and modern connectivity such as Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.2 Gen 2.

All in all a well-made alternative if you want to leave the MacBook Pro behind.

8th - Dell Precision 7530

The Dell Precision 7530 is a 15.6-inch workstation. A real workhorse, which cannot keep up with the MacBook Pro 15 in terms of glamour. However, it is available with an optional WWAN module, which might be important for some potential buyers.

We primarily liked the display with full AdobeRGB gamut, good features, the robust chassis and the steady performance during our review of the Dell Precision 7530 – it is also very quiet during light workloads. This changes when you stress the system, because the fans get loud and the CPU temperature is high as well. It is also unfortunate that you only get two USB-A ports and the Core i9 processor cannot utilize its full performance potential. The screen is also a bit grainy and we detect PWM.

9th – Asus ZenBook Flip 15

If you decide to go for an Intel Core i5 SKU the ZenBook Flip 15 can be had for less than $1,000 already, but higher-priced high-performance Core i7-based options are obviously also available.

Either way, you get a high-quality Pantone-certified convertible with a robust metal case, decent performance, very long battery life, moderate emissions, a backlit keyboard, and support for stylus input. Higher-end SKUs are even somewhat capable of gaming.

The only things missing to make this perfect are a Thunderbolt 3 port and expandable storage. All in all, the ZenBook Flip 15 can be a very interesting alternative to the MacBook Pro if you are on a budget.

10th – Dell Precision 5540

Dell Precision 5540
Dell Precision 5540

The Dell Precision 5540 is basically an XPS 15 in disguise, which is great news if you are looking for a well-designed good-looking high-quality case. However, connectivity suffers accordingly, and the device is limited to just three USB ports. Thankfully, a Thunderbolt 3 port allows for adding external peripherals via adapter or docking station.

The CPU performed very well overall but could have been a bit faster, and the GPU was too slow for a device at this price point.

In return, the 4K OLED display is a great display option but it comes at a high price: battery life suffers accordingly.
