MacBook Pro 14-inch vs Dell XPS 13: Which laptop wins?

The 14-inch Apple MacBook Pro quickly became one of our favorite laptops when it launched in 2021. In many respects, this is the MacBook Pro Apple enthusiasts have longed for, thanks to its powerful M1 Pro chip, vibrant display, thinner bezels and MagSafe charger. Aside from the notch above the display, we think it and its larger sibling the 16-inch MacBook Pro 2021 are Apple’s best MacBook to date.

During the October 2021 launch event for these new MacBook Pros Apple compared them against the latest Windows laptops manufactured by competitors. To help you make a more informed buying decision, we’re doing the same by comparing the new 14-inch MacBook Pro to one of our other favorite laptops: the 2021 Dell XPS 13 with an OLED upgrade.
