    I'm about to buy myself a new laptop as I'm a student and I need one. Can't really choose between the two models up in the title. Let me tell you the specs.
    XPS 13 9360 - FHD screen, Intel I7 Processor 7500 2,7-3,5 GHz, 256 gb storage, 8 gb of RAM.
    MacBook Pro 13 - non touch bar model (2560x1600), Intel I5 7th gen. 2,3-3,6 GHz, 128 gb storage, 8 gb of RAM.

    So, what's better in your opinion and why is that?

    The price is very similar, MacBook is slightly cheaper, but it's not a big deal. Buying dongles, MS Office for Mac costs so the prices will get similar.

    As to the system, I prefer Windows cause I work on it on my computer. The only machine with OS was my IPad, but I'm planning to buy an Iphone soon. All in all, I slightly but still prefer Windows to Mac OS.

    I think I could get used to Mac because I really love the whole design of it. XPS is more than fine too but Apple is still the king of design.

    Dell.

    Better specs, better OS (objectively), not an Apple product, not tied down to using dongles.

    Decided to but the XPS. Definitely better specs, and a major factor was the OS - Windows is just more progressive in my opinion, and you can do more on it. Dell also just looks more solid in this small casing, while MacBook looks still very cool - don't get me wrong here - but it is just an unrecoverable machine. And last but not least, the dongles. You just need USB port whoever you are. So, for the people who are having same problem, I strongly advice buying Dell.
