My employer provides a macbook pro with retina laptop with core i7, 16GB ram and an SSD drive. It is an awesome laptop. I am able to run 2 VMs, glassfish, mysqld, IntelliJ IDEA at the same time. The specs are here: https://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/. The 15‑inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is just 0.71 inch thin and 4.46 pounds.

Is there a equivalent non mac/windows laptop in terms of hardware specs, weight, thickness?

I am looking to buy a slim, light and beefy laptop just like the MacBook Pro but dont want to spend 2K USD.

Thank you.

@iceblitzed, Thanks. The ASUS laptop you posted is a powerful laptop. It is 10lbs though. I am looking for something around 5 lbs. Just updated my post.

I'm a big Mac fan (and use one here at the office) but the MSI GS60 and 70 both make me seriously reconsider. As do the Lenovo Y40 and Y50. They're all very attractive pieces of hardware, are very slim, and absolute beasts.
