Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro is an amazing laptop that is renowned for its processing power. However, today we are going to test the laptop by putting it head-on against Dell XPS 15-inch. Apple and Dell’s laptops are both of premium quality and comparing them to each other will tell us whether the 15-inch MacBook Pro or Dell XPS 15-inch is worth our money.
One of the things that Apple is renowned for is the design that it uses on its devices. The 15-inch MacBook Pro is the best laptop Apple has to offer and it should come as no surprise that it’s equipped with a sleek design. To make things even better, Apple’s laptop is also lighter than all its predecessors.
Even though Dell XPS 15 also ships with a cool-looking design, it pales in comparison with the 15-inch MacBook Pro. Apple has the advantage because its laptop is thinner by 150g and the design is simply stunning.
Under the Hood
There are two models of Dell XPS 15 that interested customers can purchase. The first one is powered by an Intel Core i5 chip while the more expensive model is fueled by an Intel Core i7. Furthermore, Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro is only available with an Intel Core i7 under its hood and while this might not be a bad thing by any means, it does imply that there isn’t an affordable version of the laptop.
Moving on to memory, the 15-inch MacBook Pro is available with 16GB of RAM under its hood. On the other hand, Dell XPS 15 comes with either 8GB or 16GB of RAM. In terms of graphics, Dell XPS 15 ships with Nvidia’s GTX 1050M and 4GB of GDDR5 memory while Apple’s laptop offers a Radeon Pro 555 and 560 GPU alongside 2GB of graphics memory.
From the looks of it, Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro takes the cake when it comes to design but falls short in terms of specs. Dell XPS 15 is better because customers can purchase a more affordable version of it while Apple fans are restricted to a couple of customization options.
