Best Alternatives For Expensive MacBook Pro: Dell XPS 13, HP Spectre x360, Dell XPS 13 2 In 1

The new MacBook Pro laptops are great laptops. However, when the money factor comes into the picture, the MacBook Pro's value may arguably be not worth it. If you're one of the people who are very meticulous in buying products that are worth every penny, here are some MacBook Pro alternatives for you.

Dell XPS 13

The Dell XPS 13 starts at $799.99 for the Core i3 version but if you want the 7th-gen Core i5 version you can get it for $999.99. These prices are for the non-touch versions so if you want a touch-enabled Dell XPS 13, you can get the Core i5 version for $1299 or the Core i7 version for $1599. Note that the non-touch models come with 128 GB storage while the touch-enabled versions come with 256 GB storage. Check on Dell's site for the specifics but as a whole, the Dell XPS 13 series is a pretty serious contender for all the laptops in the current market.

Dell XPS 13 2 In 1

The Dell XPS 13 series has recently been refreshed with 2 in 1 models. You can get the 7th-gen Core i5 2 in 1 model from $999.99 and the Core i7 version for a starting price of $1299. The Dell XPS 13 2 In 1 is quite a competition to the MacBook Pro 2016 for the sole reason that it is a 2 in 1 device and at the same time, it is also equipped with superb internals.

HP Spectre x360

The HP Spectre x360 is yet another amazing laptop from 2016. It's got a stunning look, a slim body, and top notch internals. Right now, its most recommended model is only priced at $1449 and it already offers a powerful Core i7 processor. Just like what its name suggests, the HP Spectre x360 also gives you a 360 degree of positioning system making your laptop experience more fun and more convenient.


With MacBook Pro 2016's high prices, not everyone is willing to splurge on it even if they'd want to. Although the MacOS system is quite a popular option, spending $1499 for a regular MacBook without the Touch Bar may not be an easy decision to make. Considering that you can get a fully convertible laptop with a touchscreen for lower prices, the new MacBook Pros aren't exactly your only options. Know that the 13 inch MacBook with Touch Bar is priced at $1799 and the 15-inch version is priced at $2399, as per Tech Radar. Nevertheless, the new Apple laptops are powerful devices. They're just not too affordable for other people to choose.
