Top 5 Apple MacBook Pro alternativesIf Apple's latest laptops seem to be lacking in power, here are five machines that won't let you down.
These are the top five MacBook Pro alternatives. When Apple unveiled its newest laptops, the Pro part was seemingly de-emphasized. Let's see what else is out there. At #5, the Lenovo ThinkPad T 460. 32 gigabytes of RAM, that's something no new MacBook Pro can do. This 14 inch Thinkpad had that option, and it comes with a touch screen, plus a fingerprint sensor. Lenovo claims up to 18 hours of battery life, which is pretty dang sizeable. And number four, the Razer Blade Pro. Razer's last Laptops are positions to be gaming laptops, so you know they pack a punch. The Razer Blade Pro is a 17 inch beast, with a 4K touch screen, and up to 2 terabytes of storage. This laptop is also pretty thin, under an inch thick All of that is going to cost you. The Razor Blade Pro starts at around $3700. And number three, the Microsoft Surfacebook. Microsoft upped the ante with its newest Surfacebook with an Intel i7 processor, and a new GPU that is twice as fast as the previous version of the Surfacebook. Unlike the Mac Book Pro, the Surface Book has plenty of ports and it can operate as a tablet. At number two the Alienware 13 R3. This is a 13 inch laptop that is powerful enough to handle VR for the [UNKNOWN] and the HTC Vibe. You can also get the Alienware 13 with an OLED touch screen but that puts the starting price at around $2,100. One of the downsides to this laptop is it has just two regular USB ports, but that's two more than on the MacBook Pro. It also weighs a hefty five pounds, but you want power, right? And at #1 is a Dell XPS XPS 4K Touch. We're spotlighting the XPS 15 version here. It starts at 999, but that model gets you no touchscreen and that resolution is only HD. Adding in a 4K touchscreen, an Intel i7 processor And an [UNKNOWN] 960 graphics card brings the price up to around $2100. The 15 inch version of the Mac Book Pro starts at $2,250 so the XPS could be a better deal. There's a good chance that you aren't watching this part but if you are I want you to know that you're my favorite. I always liked you. I'm Iyaz [UNKNOWN] and I'll see you online. [MUSIC]
