Head-To-Head: HP Spectre x360 Vs. Apple MacBook Pro

Email this CRN article



Even though it has some elements that the MacBook Pro doesn't have -- such as a convertible touch-screen display and impressive battery life -- the Spectre x360 is still the more-affordable laptop in our comparison. The 13-inch model starts at $1,090 (for Core i5, 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage). A 13-inch MacBook Pro with comparable specs starts at $1,799 for the Touch Bar version, and at $1,299 for the non-Touch Bar model (which has a notably slower Core i5 processor). 

Meanwhile, the 15-inch Spectre x360 isn't drastically higher in price than the 13-inch version, with a starting point of $1,129 (Core i7, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage). For a 15-inch Spectre x360 with Core i7, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, the price is $1,350. A 15-inch MacBook Pro with specs that are similar -- apart from the quad-core i7 processor -- is priced more than $1,000 higher, at $2,399.
