I threw up in my mouth when someone said HP.

The HP spectre x360 is a superb laptop.

The spectre pro's a good laptops, about the only HP laptops I have found that are not junk.

 

If you want a good laptop or computer that is built like the macs then the Surface line is the best to go with, I currently have a pro 4 and not had one problem with it at all.

Did not include the XPS line as he asked for looks and I do not think the XPS stuff looks as good as say the surface or like a macbook design wise

After you spend 3 hours uninstalling the phone home crap they install on it.

I'm surprised nobody mentioned the ASUS Zenbook Pro series.

Probably because the question and update seems more 'focused' towards a desktop

Asus Zenbook and Sony Vaio laptops(available in limited countries).

 

Also HP has some high end laptops.

 

If possible, always reset windows on new laptops to get rid of all the bloatware.

Of course, silly me. That must also be why laptops are also mentioned ;)

hi again,

many years passed (9 years !) since my last post in this thread.

and I want to buy a new Pc again, so the same question goes again: what are the PCs of premium quality like Mac available these days?

Thanks to all (old repliers, and future ones of course)

He didn't mention a laptop in his opening post, nor the refresher post

K. Make sure you police every other user discussing laptops then.

 

Thanks!

I don't think I missed something, but what's with the laptop recommendations, I was under the impression the OP was looking towards replacing their desktop...?

Then do it. Last I checked, PCs included many form factors.

Simple answer is look at price tag of a Mac and spend that on a PC. :p 

 

Or buy components and then waste the rest on a fancy case or two. :D

Please stop the back and forth.  Make recommendations (be it notebook or desktop)...

 

Obviously a budget would be helpful... to make any meaningful recommendation.  That should be a rule...haha.

 

Not sure where the OP went anyway.

Ok, done. :)

 

To get back towards the topic, I personally find it easier to answer specifically within the context of the opening question.

 

Even I could have thrown in a suggestion for Eurocom Laptops, had the OP asked, I didn't as I differentiate between PC and .book, or hybrid, and so on

If you get them MS Signature style, you avoid 99% of bloat.

There are only two brands that meets the criteria of quality build and great design of a Mac if a laptop PC is concerned. Those are the MS Surface Book series. And the Dell XPS series.

 

Personally I would get one of those if I ever were to switch to a laptop with Windows installed as the primary OS.

Glad you crossed out only, because that would make your statement false. ASUS and HP both make comparable models as well.

I'm glad too. Don't get me wrong. I forgot about HP Spectre etc. models.

Yep, ASSumption... Sorry. :) Matter of fact, that may be my next business laptop purchase.
