Head-To-Head: New Apple MacBook Pro Vs. Lenovo X1 Carbon



At the starting point, with eighth-gen Core i5 and 8 GB of RAM, Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon is easily the more-affordable option. That notebook currently has a starting price of $1,139, versus the 13-inch MacBook Pro, which is priced at $1,799 to start. You'll pay higher prices for both laptops to get Core i7, additional RAM and, for the X1 Carbon, the higher-end display options. The 15-inch MacBook Pro, meanwhile, is in another pricing league altogether with its starting price of $2,399.
