Updated:3 years, 7 months ago

New Delhi, Oct 23 (ANI): Apple gadgets have always been a dream for every gadget lover in the world but what holds one back is perhaps the cost that one has to pay. Besides latest iPhones, Apple’s MacBook Pro also stands among the most popular gadgets by the South Korean giant. But if you don’t want to break your bank, there are still a handful of impressive alternative laptops, which might be suitable to your taste. Most of them are equally powerful – if not more so – and just as aesthetically refined as Apple’s product. Dell XPS 13 is considered as the “most obvious and direct alternative” to the MBP. It flaunts a 13-inch display with minimal bezel, has a great keyboard, good trackpad, solid construction, and attractive design. Its 10-hour battery life and Intel’s 7th generation (Kaby Lake) processors make it a generation ahead of Apple’s newest MacBook Pros. HP’s newly updated 13-inch Spectre X360 boats an edge-to-edge display that has a fully rotating hinge. It houses a quad-speaker, a spacious and responsive trackpad as well as both traditional USB Type-A and forward-looking USB Type-C ports. The gadget claims to give a 15 hours battery life on a single charge. Among the other features include an IR camera which supports Windows Hello, so you can unlock the computer with one look. Asus ZenBook 3 is a much more cheaper MacBook alternative sporting a sleek stylish chassis, 12.5-inch display. It also boasts a single USB-C port and angles itself as a competitor of the Apple offering. It also packs Core i5 processor and built-in Intel HD Graphics 520 GPU. Its battery life is just an hour less than Apple’s 10-hour capacity as well. Acer Swift 7 is one of the first Kaby Lake-powered laptops, and one of the thinnest ever made at just 9.98mm. Despite its thinness, the device packs a lot of features into its 1.1kg shell. It boasts a 7th-generation Core i5-7300U processor, up to 8GB of RAM, 256GB of SSD storage, a 13.3in IPS Full HD panel. The battery is equally impressive and runs 9-hour. The laptop comes with two USB-C ports and 1280 x 720 webcam.
