The Best Windows Alternatives to Apple's MacBook Air

January 2021 Update. Apple’s MacBook Air is a favorite among all users looking for a small-format laptop. However, thin and light is not an Apple-exclusive any longer, and many OEMs offer numerous viable Windows alternatives to Apple’s thin MacBook Air.

The table above contains an overview over the best notebooks reviewed by Notebookcheck over the course of the past 12 months as well as still relevant and available older products. In cases of identical score the more recent device is listed first. All prices in above table and price comparisons are updated daily and can thus differ.

1st – HP EliteBook x360 1030 G7

HP EliteBook x360 1030 G7
HP EliteBook x360 1030 G7

The EliteBook x360 1030 G7 may be comparatively expensive, but with its thin display bezels, its great audio quality, an optional very bright display, and an excellent keyboard it is also of extremely high quality. Despite the fact that this is a full convertible it is relatively lightweight and thin.

Downsides include its short warranty of just 12 months, its lack of card reader, and the fact that there are no even higher quality 4K or OLED panel options. We came to expect these in this price range.

Nevertheless, if you have and are willing to spend the money and are looking for a high-quality tablet you cannot really go wrong with the x360 1030 G7.

2nd – Lenovo ThinkPad X13

Lenovo ThinkPad X13
Lenovo ThinkPad X13

The small Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Gen 1 with AMD Ryzen 4000 is a very fast premium notebook with strengths and weaknesses very similar to those of the ThinkPad T14s, compared to which it has a smaller display, keyboard, and case as well as a shorter battery life.

In addition, the ThinkPad X13 cannot quite keep up in terms of performance. In return, its keyboard is easily swappable whereas the T14s’s is part of the case.

Compared to the MacBook Air the ThinkPad offers a better connectivity, more safety features, a quiet and cool mode of operation, excellent input devices, and a good display.

3rd – Dell Latitude 7310

Dell Latitude 7310
Dell Latitude 7310

If you’re in the market for a compact notebook capable of competing against the MacBook Air you may want to take a closer look at the Latitude 7310. Compared to its predecessor, Dell further optimized its size and weight thereby creating a true high-end subnotebook. You can save even more weight by going with the optional carbon-fiber case.

In return, you have to make do with a somewhat spongy clickpad instead of a mousepad with dedicated mouse buttons. RAM cannot be expended, and the display could be brighter.

Those things aside the device does offer a lot: long battery life, quiet fan noise, no PWM flickering, and numerous safety features.

4th – Dell XPS 13 9300

Dell XPS 13 9300
Dell XPS 13 9300

Dell’s XPS 13 9300 offers a 16:10 display and an up-to-date Intel Ice Lake CPU including Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 GPU. As such, the compact convertible is a true jack of all trades, although gaming should definitely not be at the top of your list. The Dell XPS 13 9300 became much more attractive this year, particularly thanks to its design and the 16:10 display.

If you don’t depend on macOS the XPS 13 9300 can be a very tempting alternative as it offers a multitude of qualities, such as its low noise emissions, its small footprint, its flexible charging options, its long battery life and its bright display. Not all that glitters is gold, though, and the flip side are missing HDMI and USB-A ports, and an overall worse selection of ports than on previous models. Professionals might not be particularly impressed by the limited connectivity, but at least Dell continues to equip its XPS 13 with a microSD card reader.

5th – Lenovo ThinkPad T14s

Lenovo ThinkPad T14s
Lenovo ThinkPad T14s

The Lenovo ThinkPad T14s is the first model featuring Lenovo’s new model naming convention, and despite its different moniker it is the successor to last year’s T490s.

As before, you get a great business notebook with a slim, robust, a premium case, a good display, great input devices, long battery life, and low noise emissions. The new model features Wi-Fi 6, which is expected of premium notebook such as this.

Even though our final verdict on the AMD SKU is not in yet we definitely suggest opting for that one instead of the Intel model. Our first impressions of the AMD-powered model already showed a significant improvement in performance at the cost of the Thunderbolt 3 port that is only available on Intel SKUs.

6th – HP EliteBook 830 G7

HP EliteBook 830 G7
HP EliteBook 830 G7

HP improved upon its latest EliteBook 830 significantly. Among others it features a better and well-designed chassis, a comfortable keyboard, a variety of easily upgradeable components, and decent sound quality. Some details make everyday work so much more convenient, such as for example charging via USB-C of the webcam shutter.

In return, CPU performance is in need of improvement, and the list of options is fairly short. No 4K display, no eSIM, no SD card reader, and no Intel Iris graphics option either. Flexibility and configurability could have been better. 

Pricecompare

7th – HP Spectre x360 13

HP Spectre x360 13
HP Spectre x360 13

Compared to its own predecessor, the HP Spectre x360’s case is slightly smaller, and the display is slightly brighter. Accordingly, it is one of the best high-end convertibles and offers more flexibility than the MacBook Air.

A high-quality case, a comfortable keyboard, a full-sized USB port, a fast card reader, and a battery life of more than 10 hours in our Wi-Fi test are other benefits.

On the downside we noted slow response times, the lack of HDMI connectivity, and poor upgradeability.

Pricecompare

8th – Microsoft Surface Pro 7

Microsoft Surface Pro 7
Microsoft Surface Pro 7

If you already own a Surface Pro 5 or Surface Pro 6 there really isn’t any convincing reason for you to upgrade to the Surface Pro 7 as it contains minor improvements and is more of an evolutionary step rather than a revolutionary redesign. CPU performance, for example, remained practically identical. However, optional extra GPU performance is now available, as is a USB-C port.

That said the Surface Pro 7’s predecessors already performed at a very high level in many aspects, and the Pro 7 follows in their footsteps. By default it comes with Wi-Fi 6 now, features a fast SSD, and it is passively cooled and this completely silent. The Surface Pro 7 remains one of the best Windows tablets available, and thanks to a variety of great third-party keyboards it can be a worthy alternative to Apple’s MacBook Air.

9th – HP EliteBook 845 G7

HP EliteBook 845 G7
HP EliteBook 845 G7

HP’s AMD-equipped EliteBook 845 G7 is yet another recommendation over the Intel counterpart, compared to which it is faster, offers more GPU performance, and cheaper. Its keyboard is comfortable, and its battery life is decent. You can even charge the laptop via USB-C. 

Unfortunately, Thunderbolt 3 and a microSD card reader are nowhere to be found. The fan is also not particularly pleasant when it gets going. Overall, we very much liked the high-quality premium EliteBook 845 G7 a lot even though it is slightly heavier than the MacBook Air.

Pricecompare

10th – Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga

Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga
Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga

The ThinkBook 14s Yoga is a fairly lightweight convertible made by Lenovo. It remains comparatively quiet and cool, features a good backlit keyboard, and even comes with a stylus for the touchscreen.

A cool and fairly quiet convertible with good connectivity and a backlit keyboard.

Other highlights include a Thunderbolt 4 port, upgradeable RAM, and very good battery life.

Downsides include the lack of WWAN option, the fact that it does not support LPDDR4X RAM and thus slows down the GPU as a result, and the somewhat dim display that could have been brighter. Nevertheless, at $1,300 you get a pretty decent device.
