Notebookcheck

The best alternatives to the Apple MacBook Pro 13

Florian Schmitt, Sabine Kückemanns (translated by Katherine Bodner), 02/13/2018

April 2020 Update. A Mac? No thanks. Apple's range of notebooks is as popular as ever. But there is also a good selection of similarly interesting notebooks for Windows users. Take a look at the best devices that the world of Windows has come up with to compete against Apple's portfolio.

Despite its limited range of products, Apple has managed to supply a suitable notebook for almost every area of use, avoiding only the more price-sensitive entry-level segment - at least for now. We soon noticed the difficulty of finding comparable Windows devices for the few series that Apple offers. You will have to accept small compromises such as differences in the size of the device, its display resolution, weight and the hardware used. If you are not willing to do this, you will have to use Bootcamp Windows on a Mac computer. But as this would mean losing many of the advantages that Apple notebooks offer, this will only be the best option in certain cases.

You might also be interested in the following roundups:

The following table shows a collection of MacBook competitors based on the Windows operating system that have been tested by Notebookcheck in the past 12 months. If the devices received the same rating, we prioritized the more recent review. The table can be sorted by clicking on the headlines and filtered with the search bar (for example, by searching for "matte”).

Editor's Comments

The new MacBook Pro 13 is available with an optional OLED bar, which is supposed to make it easier to use compatible programs. With or without the bar: Apple's notebook is a slim and powerful device - that comes at a certain price. Windows alternatives can be found in the area of 14-inch business devices as well as 13-inch ultrabooks. We have chosen a good selection of high-quality devices that have no need to fear comparison with Apple's notebooks. Prices range from significantly cheaper devices to even more expensive models.

1st – Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2019
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2019

Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2019) remains a formidable competitor for Apple’s MacBook Pro 13. Its lightweight and perfectly made case, its excellent input devices, its high performance, and its long battery life are some of its main selling points. Compared to last year’s model the 2019 edition supports optional WWAN. Another pro is the new low-power display that performed very well in our tests.

Our main gripe is the fact that the case can get very warm, and that the fan is running most of the time. It also offers very limited repairability and maintainability, although it shares those with the MacBook Pro 13. As such, the ThinkPad X1 Carbon 2019 can be a great alternative at a very high price.

2nd – Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 is made of high-quality material that leaves a great haptic sensation as well as an excellent visual impression. Lenovo’s build quality for their ThinkPad line was already at a very high level, but the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 seems to up the ante even further.

On the inside we find a Intel Core i7-8565U allowed to consume up to 51 W. Accordingly, the turbo boost fluctuated quite dramatically under load.

Among its qualities are the new speakers that offer a much-improved audio experience when compared to other ThinkPads as well as its plentiful connectivity, albeit the omission of a card reader is definitely a downside. Keyboard, track point, and touchpad remain as good as ever, although key travel has been reduced slightly, and might require some getting used to from experience ThinkPad typists.

Performance-wise the ThinkPad X1 Yoga 2019 was neither improved nor downgraded. The cooler, on the other hand, was modified slightly and is now running less frequently resulting in lightly warmer surface temperatures than before.

3rd – Dell XPS 13 9300

Dell XPS 13 9300

Dell’s Dell 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. As an alternative to Apple’s MacBook 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.

4th – Lenovo Yoga C940

The Yoga C940 is a convertible that can measure up to the best of the best. It offers enough performance to be considered casual-gaming-capable, a high-quality display, an integrated stylus pen, and powerful speakers. Its emissions have been improved, and the bright display is another quality worth mentioning.

On the flip side are poor connectivity and a highly reflective display without any other display options. If you are not looking for a notebook but would also consider a convertible the Yoga C940 can be a great MacBook alternative.

5th – HP EliteBook x360 830 G6

The HP EliteBook x360 830 G6 convertible is definitely worth its high asking price. It offers comfortable input devices, great connectivity, and great battery life.

We were not particularly fond of its below average CPU performance, although we should add that we did not notice that too much during everyday use. Thus, the EliteBook x360 830 G6 is a more than viable alternative to Apple’s MacBook Pro 13.

6th – Lenovo ThinkPad T490

Oops, they did it again. Lenovo's ThinkPad T490 is yet another great alternative for Apple’s MacBook Pro 13. It is one of Lenovo’s flagship business models and can cost up to $2,000, depending on configuration. It offers an optional LTE modem, the well-known excellent ThinkPad keyboard, a multitude of security features, and last but not least a very high level of performance.

The 2019 model also features a radical design change. The case was slimmed down significantly and now lacks the secondary battery. In return, you get thinner display bezels and a very well built albeit slightly less robust case. While its weight might be higher than the MacBook Pro 13’s it also features a slightly larger display.

Downsides include poor repairability and maintainability as well as high display response times. In return, you get a mostly quiet and very compact device with extensive warranty options.

7th – Huawei MateBook D14

Thanks to AMD hardware the MateBook D 14 starts at less than $700. For that, you get plenty of performance, great battery life, and decent input devices. The compact case was pretty robust and given that Huawei managed to tame the SoC the laptop does not thermal throttle.

The webcam position below the display is very odd resulting in a rather poor perspective as well as an easily covered camera lens. The device’s maintenance options were also very poor.

Overall, the MateBook D 14 is a great device for users in the market for a good-looking affordable notebook.

8th – Dell Latitude 7400

The Dell Latitude 7400 became lighter and smaller, but its performance did not suffer. Nevertheless, its turbo boost capabilities are restricted on battery.

The fan was annoying, and the display could have been brighter. Otherwise, we found no real flaws worth mentioning on this high-quality Dell laptop. Battery life was long, display bezels are narrow, and the device was fairly quiet most of the time.

9th – Acer Swift 3

Acer’s Swift 3 SF313 is an almost all-around well-made 13.5-inch notebook. It is very light yet manages to maintain a very robust base. We also liked its very bright 3:2 display, which turned out to have good color space coverage to boot. The small 13.5-inch device features the latest technology: Ice Lake CPU, NVMe SSD, DDR4 RAM, and an IPS panel. It is thus well-suited for photo editing purposes.

Upgradeability is fairly limited, though. RAM is soldered onto the motherboard, and the devices does not support a second storage device. Wi-Fi performance was comparatively poor. However, we expect this issue to be a a problem with our particular device and are hoping to receive an identical second device to repeat our tests.

Acer’s Swift 3 SF313 offers good performance, long battery life, and a great display without putting too much strain on your budget.

10th – Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1

Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1

For the XPS 13 convertible Dell took a deep sip from the cup of innovation and offers a MagLev keyboard, vapor-chamber cooling, and GORE isolation for the first time. In addition, the 16:10 display offers a rather uncommon display ratio. Speaking of which, the display is Dell’s masterpiece. It is very well calibrated and can get so bright that the XPS 13 is even usable for professional use outdoors.

The good-looking case is fairly light, offers two Thunderbolt 3 ports with Power Delivery, and a long battery life. We liked both keyboard and speakers, and the microSD card slot turned out to be fairly fast to boot. A downside for some might be the non-upgradeable RAM as well as the lack of features such as an LTE option or NFC.

All things considered the Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 remains a very interesting and attractive device if you happen to be looking for a powerful computer in a small case and don’t mind sacrificing a few features along the way. Its excellent display makes this a perfect device for professional photo editing on the go.
