Apple's MacBook Pro is said to be the best-selling laptop as of late, but there are those who are not fans of the laptop. If you are one of those looking for an alternative to the Macbook Pro, then good news because there are plenty of other choices for you to choose from. It all depends on what you require from the laptop that you intend to buy. Forbes has given some other laptops for consumers to consider as their option over the Macbook Pro.

Razer Blade

This is perfect for those who consider gaming as their primary reason for buying a laptop. Gaming products have been a specialty of Razer for almost twenty years. They have three kinds of laptops, and the 14-inch Razer Blade is the one recommended in the article. If you are interested in screen quality, the Razer offers either a touch enabled resolution of 3200x1800 or a 1920x1010 IPS screen. It is slightly larger when compared to the Macbook, but its standout quality is that of its keyboard which uses Chroma backlighting, which will be helpful for gamers who want to utilize keys for different actions. It comes with a 2.6 GHz Inter Core i7 and 16 GB of RAM. Battery life can last for six hours.

Microsoft Surface Book

This laptop has a fulcrum hinge which lets the screen be detached as a tablet. There is Surface Pen included which is helpful when you just want to use it as a tablet. There are several choices for the consumers starting with the entry-level Surface Book which costs about $1499 and can have either an 8BG or 126 GB RAM, SSD from 128 GB up to 1TB and i5 or i7 Skylake processor. This product is good for productivity, and perfect for professionals wanting an alternative to MacBook Pro.

HP Spectre x360

Like the Surface Book, the Spectre can also function both as a laptop and a tablet. It comes with a 1920x1080 touchscreen display which is good for Windows 10.  It's one of the first to use Intel's Kabylake as its processor and it is backed by 8 GB of RAM. The Spectre is thin compared to its predecessors and has a battery of a little over nine hours when used for video streaming.
