    I need a netbook which weighs 1 kg MAX. Not. one gram more. In fact I would prefer under 2 pounds. I need at least one standard usb port. I don't care if it has usb c or not.

    I am not interested in a 2 in 1 nor a tablet with a keyboard. I prefer keyboard comes with and has standard attachment to screen. 1080p is fine 13 or 14 inches.

    Must be Windows 10 with i5 or i7 preferably with newer tech like skylake. SSD must be fast but needn't be huge 128gb+ is fine.

    Must have backlit keyboard.

    I haven't been able to find anything meeting criteria. Can you help? Thanks so much.

    Acer Swift 5 Coffee Lake is an upcoming model that nicely fits. Might want to see in person

    The Samsung NP900X3N might be worth a look.

    However, the battery capacity is embarrassing.

    They said 4.5 hours over at Notebookcheck, which seems respectable given that when you built a notebook this small, there's not enough weight to increase the battery size.

    there are 3 I know of

    The Vaio S weighs almost exactly 1 Kg 2.33 Lbs (1.056 Kg). It is available I7 and PCIe 256 SSD.

    I will have to do more research but thanks so much for great recommendations! From what I've read so far the LG gram sounds spectacular but of course I will want to find one at a brick and mortar to check out. To be honest all 3 sound great but the LG has the security chip which is appealing. Looks like I will have to spend over a thousand dollars to get what I want but then so does a smart phone.

    Anybody know any reason NOT to go with any of the 3 above? All I need is 4 hours light use screen on battery life.

    Vaio is unknown to me. Samsung uses a tiny battery. LG Gram is quite expensive.

    Swift 5 Coffee Lake also has a fingerprint scanner... I'll be glad if Acer houses at least the 41Wh battery

    Acer is appealing because I would like to spend under a thousand dollars but if it isn't out yet it is vaporware to me at this point. I need a new computer now.

    Does the LG Gram power cord have a heavy brick charger? I need to carry cord too so if it is heavy it defeats my purpose.
