The $1,799 MacBook Pro 13 vs. the $650 Acer Swift 3: Guess who wins?

Apple’s MacBook Pro 13 just came out, and it already has a tough adversary. That foe is not the usual high-end, high-priced Windows workhorse like the Dell XPS 13 we just tested, as great as it is.

That’s not a typo. The Acer Swift 3 costs. When we reviewed the Acer Swift 3 (see page 37), it surpassed all expectations by keeping pace with laptops far bigger and more expensive. And sorry to say, the MacBook Pro 13 is in the same pickle as those other powerhouses. Keep reading and weep, Apple.
