Surface Book vs MacBook Air vs Dell XPS 13 vs HP Spectre x360 13t: Specs Shootout Of Thin Laptops
Microsoft, Apple, HP, and Dell are the PC market's long-running rivals, Microsoft's Surface Book, which launched last year and the MacBook Air is the most inexpensive laptop in Apple's lineup, HP's Spectre x360 3 keeps getting better and the XPS 13 is Dell's best laptop so far. Each laptop brings new innovative features set to impress its users.
Microsoft Surface Book 2016
This is the work of the new Microsoft, an organization that has changed a lot on the grounds that Satya Nadella took over as CEO. It comes with a towering price but the Surface Book is an impeccable piece of technology with a mix of excellent design, top-end build quality, and high-end specifications. Battery life is amazing and there's a lot that you can do with the Surface Book model with the Nvidia GPU. Equipped with a sixth-generation i7 processor, its graphics cards may not be the best playing high-end video games, but, it may be good enough for RTS titles and Source video games like Counter-Strike.
The MacBook Air is the cheapest notebook in Apple's lineup, especially now that the 11-inch $899 MacBook Air has been retired. It has something else big going for it, promising 14 hours of battery life which makes it the longest running MacBook by far. That kind of endurance and pricing makes the Air a good option for students. It's standard definition, however, not a high-definition Retina display like the ones in MacBook or MacBook Pro. That means, from a normal viewing distance, still, you can be able to see the individual pixels on the screen, almost like you're looking through a screen door. For the Speed, MacBook Air uses Intel Core processors, currently of the previous Broadwell generation.
HP Spectre x360 3t
The HP Spectre x360 3t weighs less than three pounds and fits easily inside a bag. It is powered by the fastest processor allowed in this class of laptop, a 7th-generation Intel Core i7 dual-core CPU-with an equally blistering fast PCIe-NVMe storage drive to go with it. Alongside, you'll get a comfortable keyboard, a great trackpad, and even a set of worthwhile speakers. The Spectre x360 comes with a good set-up integrated IR camera which supports Windows Hello. Also, it comes with crisp IPS panel with 10-point touch which costs less than most other thin-and-light laptops with similar configurations.
Dell XPS 13
Dell puts a stunning InfinityEdge, nigh-zero bezel in a 13-inch laptop into the body of an 11-incher. The outside is still brushed with aluminum and the keyboard deck, carbon fiber.The Dell XPS 13 2-in-1 price tag starts at $999 for a full-HD touch screen and fueled by Core i5-7Y54 processor, equipped with 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD. Although with $1,199 configuration, that comes with the latest 7th-generation Intel Core CPUs (Kaby Lake)and offers truly epic battery life.
