5 Best Alternatives to the Newly Announced Apple MacBook Pro

Apple introduced the refreshed MacBook Pro's last week. The newly announced laptop will take on the Microsoft's Surface Book and other laptops in the same or higher price point.


After keeping the users at bay for nearly two years, Apple finally updated their MacBook Pro lineup and announced three new laptops under the premium laptops.

5 Best Alternatives to the Newly Announced Apple MacBook Pro

Before the official launch, everyone thought that the 2016 MacBook Pro's will last longer for years, same as the case with current generation MacBook's. However, that wasn't case at all. The Cupertino-giant went ahead and embedded four USB Type-C ports, which is kind of weird stuff, but we must admit that Apple is clearly looking into the future.

So, if you're not interested in getting a Type-C ported MacBook Pro, then here are the top five alternatives to Apple's latest entrant.

Dell XPS 13

The most obvious alternative to the Apple's MacBook Pro. The Dell XPS 13 comes with fairly minimal bezels and a great build quality as well. According to Dell, the XPS 13 can deliver battery life of up to 10 hours and the current generation XPS 13 features the latest Intel Kaby Lake processors.

Furthermore, this laptop has two regular USB ports, a thunderbolt 3 connector, and also the SD card reader.

Microsoft Surface Book

One of the straight forward reason to buy the Microsoft Surface Book is for its stupendous battery life. The Redmond giant claims that the machine can deliver up to 16 hours of battery life, which is insane.

The product is priced aggressively at Rs. 144,990 but offers a lot more features than the latest MacBook Pro.
