    LG just released its 2018 LG Gram 15 Full HD IPS Touchscreen Display, Intel Core i7 (8th Gen), 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD, 2.5lbs, Ultrabook model 15Z975-A.AAS7U1:

    Mobiletechreview just did a review on it:


    Benchmarks:
    PCMark 8 Home Accelerated: 3259
    PCMark 10: 3329
    3DMark Cloud Gate: 8390
    3DMark Ice Storem Extreme: 50106
    3DMark Sky Diver: 4522
    Cinebench R15: 40 fps (by Amazon reviewer)

    Price: $1999 (Amazon)
    https://www.amazon.com/LG-gram-Thin...54eadb3eb2aa92f198c6b&camp=1789&creative=9325

    Note: Make sure you get the 2018 model. It has the web cam on the top of the screen and also features a finger-print reader and a Thunderbolt 3 port.

    There is also an unboxing video here (sponsored by LG), but it does not give much additional information:

    Thanks for that. It looks like the 15.6" laptop is not to difficult to open and would support up to 2x2TB SATA SSD drives. Unfortunately I don't see any option for a matte display. :(

    Touch screen displays tend to be glossy. It is possible that the non-touch screen versions (listed below) have a less glossy display:

    One Amazon customer answers the question: "Does this laptop have a matte or glossy display?" with "It’s on the glossy side. "

    I've had hands-on with the Gram 15Z980. The display is glossy ... reflective surface. You can see yourself in it pretty clearly when the display is off, just like a mirror.
