Seems like a great deal. If I'm not mistaken, this is the newer version with better battery life?

Thanks OP!

No, it doesn't. This is a regular, old fashioned laptop Smilie

Entirely different product. But can you find a Surface with these specs at this price with the Keyboard?

Costco's return policy will let me buy this, try it for a few weeks, and return it if for some reason I really don't like it, correct?

LG Gram is lighter (2.4 lb vs 2.67 lb) and yet with a larger screen (15.6" vs 13.3") and a larger battery (72 Wh vs 52 Wh). Plus, XPS 13 has terrible camera placement that shoots up your nostril. In terms of ports, XPS 13 has DisplayPort Type-C & Thunderbolt 3, but LG Gram has USB 3.0 Type-C, HDMI, Ethernet & Micro SD slot.

Thanks I just thought the XPS was a more premium product but after looking in there is no competition

I'm wondering this as well because I just bought two elephants and want to make sure that this will make it.

On a serious note, this laptop is a sweet deal at this price....!LMAOLMAOLMAO

I wouldn't call this laptop "rugged" by any means, but for what it's worth, LG claims this has passed military grade durability standards. Multiple reviews mention the laptop having a bit of a flex, but LG claims that's intentional, to help deal with mechanical shocks.
