Starting with the LG Gram 17, the top-end configuration of this ultraportable, and ultraslim 17-inch laptop now is retailing for $1,400 instead of $1,800. For this price, you’re getting quite a deal.

The LG Gram 17 also has big-time battery life of up to 19 hours, as well as an efficient processor for general productivity, support for Thunderbolt 3, and an external SSD.

The laptop is equipped with the top-range Intel Core i7-8565U processor, as well as a total of 16GB of RAM. It even has a 1.024TB SSD. This means that you’ll be able to get the most storage out of the laptop, as well as the best performance for light gaming and multitasking.

now comes in at $1,600 instead of its usual price of $2,000.

That configuration comes with an 8th-generation Intel Core i7 processor, as well as 8GB of RAM and a 258GB SSD. If you want an even cheaper Surface Book 2, you can opt for the model with the Intel Core i5 processor instead,

which is now $1,300

. Regardless of which model you choose, there’s plenty to like. We found the 13.5-inch Surface Book 2 quite impressive. We loved its keyboard and touchpad, its high-contrast screen, and unparalleled battery life.

As for the larger 15-inch Surface Book 2,

the price now comes in at $2,000 instead of $2,500

— a savings of $500. This is the best Surface Book model you can buy, as it comes with the Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM, as well as a 256GB SSD. With the addition of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 inside, it’s even great for gaming. We reviewed this model and really loved its overall performance and battery life, as well as its gaming performance.

HP Spectre x360 vs. Microsoft Surface Book 2

One of the hottest high-end laptop comparisons we made in 2017 was pitting the HP Spectre x360 against the Microsoft Surface Book 2.

In 2018, HP came back with a vengeance with a second generation of its Spectre x360 15 and further built upon that design in late 2019.

We're covering the 2018 Spectre x360 in this comparison. If you want to check out the latest versions of both of these laptops, make sure to read our HP Spectre x360 13 (late 2019) review and Microsoft Surface Book 3 review.
