Lenovo vs Apple

Lenovo vs Apple

In many ways, comparing Lenovo with Apple is a case of comparing apples to oranges. On paper, it would seem that the devices have many similarities – both Lenovo and Apple produce laptops and desktop computers for personal and commercial use – but in truth, Apple and Lenovo approach the same goal with different philosophies. Despite the fact that these differences make a true head-to-head comparison tricky, there are still factors that we can look at to weigh one against the other.

Lenovo vs Macbook

The first thing worth mentioning in any comparison between Lenovo and Apple's Macbook range is choice. Though numbers vary year-after-year, Apple typically offers three different Macbook models: the Macbook, Macbook Pro, and Macbook Air. These individual models are often available with different screen sizes, but not always. As such, users have few choices when it comes to Apple laptops. In some cases, there may only be five or six individual laptops to choose from when considering Apple.

Lenovo's laptop range, by comparison, offers ample choice. In fact, Lenovo is the number one PC vendor in the world. With the ThinkPad, IdeaPad, Yoga, and Chromebook Series of laptops, Lenovo offers devices at all price points, suitable for all users. Whether you are a student, professional, or gamer, Lenovo has a device to suit your needs and budget – there are dozens of devices to choose from. When it comes to product options, flexibility, and budget, Lenovo is the superior choice to Apple.

Yoga vs Macbook

There is no denying that Lenovo offers a greater selection of laptops than Apple, but if Lenovo is unable to beat or match Apple at its own game, then simply offering a greater volume of products isn't enough to meet consumer needs. For this reason, it's also worth comparing individual models. Thankfully, Lenovo devices compare favorably against Apple's Macbook.

In third-party reviews, Lenovo's Yoga Pro 3 is shown to be directly comparable (if not superior) to Apple's Macbook in nearly all metrics. This includes storage capacity, processor power, display size, graphics, and more. Additionally, the Lenovo Yoga 3 offers greater flexibility than Apple's Macbook, as it includes more input and output ports, including media slots. Apple's Macbook uses proprietary ports (such as Thunderbolt) in lieu of universal ports, limiting its usability.

OS X vs Windows

As with individual model comparisons, third-party reviews show that Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system is directly comparable to Apple's OS X El Capitan in many ways, if not better. For multi-tasking, personal assistance, user interface, and special features, Windows 10 is regarded by many parties as the superior choice to Apple's operating system. Combining the best features of Windows 7 and Windows 8, Microsoft's Windows 10 OS is designed to provide a more rewarding user experience by making tasks easier and more intuitive than ever.

Of course, OS X and Windows 10 already have loyal fans. If you are considering a Lenovo laptop or desktop computer, it may be because you are already a Windows user. If this is the case, you are sure to like the new features found in Windows 10. The Start menu is back, which you may already know, but a number of new features are offered as well, including Microsoft's personal digital assistant, Cortana. With Cortana, Microsoft brings the voice recognition and usability of "OK Google" and Apple's Siri to Windows for the first time.
