I wanted to buy a laptop for me and my budget is $700.
I want a laptop which has the specs similar to the Mac book Pro.
I don't need a Retina Display.
Please help me a decide a good laptop.
I don't want to buy the macbook because they are exceeding my budget by about 1500 dollars .
Any help would be appreciated.
an Ultrabook, which is what you are searching for. Macbook competent in every aspect and comes cheaper for sure. You can check similar notebooks from samsung/asus/acer/lenovo/hp/toshiba/dell under the name "ultrabook".... Just be sure to choose a version which comes with a SSD drive to have similar operation as a Macbook.
