    I looked at the Samsung mentioned above at Best Buy today. It was almost 3 pounds! I don't know where the 0.8 KG stat came from? The Zenbook 3 was much lighter.

    The Gram seems like my best bet but I want to buy in a brick and mortar and nobody has them. Not Best Buy. Not Microcenter.

    You shure it was the right one (13" and not the 15")

    3 lbs would almost be double what they claim... even an OEM can't lie that bad

    From Samsung's webpage:

    Maybe it wasn't 13 inches but I showed the salesman what I wanted in the post here that that is what he showed me. The screen looked the same as the Zenbook but I didn't compare carefully. Pretty sure it was 13.

    It felt heavy to me so salesman scanned it. It is also possible he gave me package weight.

    I wish I could find a gram in a store to try out.

    LG confirmed to me Gram 13 only available online. Not carried by brick and mortars. I won't spend 1000 bucks without at least seeing one and playing with it a little.

    Still haven't found my light weight ultrabook. Looking for 8th gen i5 or i7 processor with hdmi out, vga out (or an adapter) usb c and usb a.

    I read a bad review on the Asus Zenbook saying screen too glossy and too dim. Acer swift 5 also got a bad review. I like LG Gram but no 8th gen processor. The new quad core 8th gen low voltage processors are supposed to be great! I'd like to keep it around 1kg. Must be under 2.8 pounds. Any ideas?
