The best alternatives to the Apple MacBook Pro 15

Florian Wimmer (translated by Katherine Bodner), 02/09/2018

PowerBook. 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. Updated January 2018.

The MacBook 15 is Apple’s ultimate answer if you are looking for high performance in an (Apple) notebook. Apple has equipped the MBP 15 with a high-performance 45-W quad-core processor and a dedicated graphics card from AMD. The Radeon Pro 555 or 560 are mid-range GPUs and their gaming performance can be compared to that of Nvidia’s GeForce MX150. The starting price for the MBP is $1800, which includes 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB of SSD storage. At its best – with 2 TB of PCIe SSD storage and a 3.1-GHz quad-core CPU, the MBP 15 costs around $4000. So we will be looking at top-quality multimedia and workstation laptops from the world of Windows that can compete with these specifications. You may also be interested in the following roundups:

Update 01/2018: For more clarity, we have decided to separate the lists of the top Windows alternatives for Apple’s MacBook Pro 13 and 15. 

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").

Editors' Comments

Apple has given the MacBook Pro 15 an overhaul. Here is a list of Windows alternatives, including powerful multimedia all-rounders and top-level business devices. A lot has happened here in the past few years: The MacBook Pro 15 now has quite a lot of competitors to deal with.

1st - Lenovo ThinkPad P51

Lenovo ThinkPad P51
Lenovo ThinkPad P51

Lenovo’s ThinkPad P51 features the same case as its predecessor but has received some internal upgrades. In addition to a high level of performance that is available for prolonged periods of sustained loads the devices offers a rigid and robust case and excellent input devices.

The high-resolution 4K display was a positive surprise. Unfortunately, Lenovo does not quite manage to equip all of its devices with high-quality panels but the P51’s 4K display is certainly one of the best and highly recommendable. Decent brightness, no PWM, high color accuracy and high color space coverage. A calibration tool is included, but it failed to improve the display’s accuracy on our review model.

2nd - HP Spectre x360 15t

HP Spectre x360 15t
HP Spectre x360 15t

The HP Spectre x360 15t is a wonderful convertible. It offers an extraordinarily well-made case, great input devices and good battery runtimes. But you should be aware that the display (like that of the MacBook Pro 15) is quite reflective and therefore difficult to use outdoors, and that the case shows up fingerprints quite easily. The HP Spectre x350 15t can also become quite warm during use. The dedicated graphics chip even allows you to play simple games. At just over 2 kg (~4.4 lbs), the device is a little heavier than the MacBook Pro 15. 

Nonetheless: The many advantages and great flexibility of the HP Spectre x360 15t make it a worthy opponent.

3rd - HP ZBook Studio G4-Y6K17EA

HP ZBook Studio G4
HP ZBook Studio G4

The ZBook Studio G4 is HP’s attempt to squeeze high-performance into a compact case. Its predecessor, the Studio G3, suffered from high temperatures and while the Studio G4 is certainly not one of the cooler devices we have seen it is significantly better than its predecessor. The case is very well made and offers high-quality input devices. Our review unit was equipped with the optional and quite decent 4K DreamColor panel. That said the only difference to the regular 4K panels seems to be in software.

It does have one major downside, though: the DreamColor panel is incompatible to Nvidia Optimus, which means the ZBook G4’s dedicated GPU is always enabled. Unsurprisingly, this had a striking effect on battery life. It also lacks some features we would have expected from a portable workstation, such as WWAN or a smart card reader.

4th - Schenker Key 15

Schenker Key 15

The Schenker Key 15 offers plenty of performance packed into a compact metal case. It features the same 45 W TDP i7 CPU class as the MacBook Pro 15 as well as a GeForce GTX 1060 GPU and an optional high-contrast 4K panel.

That said we find the lack of Thunderbolt 3 rather disturbing, and the battery turned out to be quite poor as well. Nevertheless the Schenker Key 15 can be a viable alternative for those on a budget.

5th - Lenovo ThinkPad P51s

Lenovo ThinkPad T570
Lenovo ThinkPad T570

The ThinkPad P51s is the smaller and lighter alternative to the bigger ThinkPad P51 workstation. Keep in mind that this model features a ULV processor instead, and is thus incapable of achieving comparable levels of performance as processors with a higher TDP. Plus, clock speeds were throttled on battery. If you don’t mind these limitations the P51s offers excellent input devices, long battery life, and an impressive case worth a closer look.
