Best Macbook Clones

Some of the most well designed and sleek looking computers available are Macbooks, especially the MacBook Pro line. Because of this, many PC manufacturers are looking to imitate the sleek design and speed associated with the Apple laptop. While the MacBook is an elegant and powerful laptop, it is rather pricey, and some people prefer to use Microsoft based operating systems. This is where the HP Envy line of products come in.

At first glance, you can see the obvious similarities between the MacBook Pro and the HP Envy line. Both laptops feature smooth lines and a minimalist approach to keyboard and port connections, and both have sleek shiny metal exteriors. While most Windows based laptops are covered in buttons and switches, the HP Envy has pared these keys down to little more than the keyboard.

The MacBook Pro line, in addition to being a visually attractive laptop, also boasts speed and processing power; the HP Envy is no different. Both laptops are offered with the ability to create your own perfect computer. You can upgrade everything from processing speed, to RAM, to hard drive space, and even the type of keyboard you prefer. Additionally, both laptops are available in a variety of sizes; they start out with 13″ screen sizes and go all the way up to 17″ screen sizes.

Interestingly enough, both laptops use the Quad-core Intel Core i7 processor in either 2.4GHz or 2.45GHz speeds. And while neither laptop is a slouch in performance, the HP Envy actually outclasses the MacBook Pro in a few ways. The maximum RAM upgrade available for the MacBook is 8G, but the HP Envy fully doubles that by offering a maximum RAM of 16G. Another way that the HP Envy bests the MacBook is in available hard drive space. While the MacBook offers either a 750GB Serial ATA @ 7200 rpm hard drive, or a 512GB solid state drive, the limit for the HP Envy is a whopping 1.05TB 7200 RPM Dual Hard Drive (a 300GB solid state drive and a 750GB @ 7200 RPM drive).

While the Envy’s base price is far lower than that of the MacBook Pro, it is easy to start upgrading memory and hard drive space to the point that you’ve gone far beyond the MacBook starting price. That said, the HP Envy series was designed to be a Windows answer to the styling and power of the MacBook Pro series, and it has done an excellent job. If you are looking to purchase from the HP Envy series consider using a hp coupon code to reduce costs.

    Almost all people do not have enough budget to buy macbook (although we know that this kind of gadget is too expensive). That is why they would prefer to buy imitation, which can be a good quality also! Thanks for the information about imitating this gadget!

    I believe if you can’t afford the macbook pro and apparently are sensitive to hypes, then don’t buy a macbook clone, that will only show people you can’t afford the real thing.
    I would not mind buying a laptop with these specs, but I would not want one that tries to look like a macbook pro.

    Many choose to have macbook for themselves because of its stylish design and advanced features. I guess having some options that buyers can choose from would really be helpful for everybody who will be interested to buy similar kind of gadget at more affordable price.

    I do like the manner in which you have framed this specific matter plus it does supply me a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, coming from everything that I have seen, I simply just wish when other reviews pack on that people remain on point and don’t start on a tirade associated with the news. All the same, thank you for this outstanding piece and whilst I do not necessarily concur with this in totality, I value the viewpoint.
