If you willing to splurge and don't need touchscreen, go for LG gram. Light as Frisbee!

Didn't get it at SITEX, but I recently bought the Acer Swift 5 (new model with Intel 10th gen processor). Use it for work and photo editing. No regrets - under 1kg in weight and still powerful specs. I think SITEX has it bundled with Office 2019 Home & Student, slightly cheaper than buying separately
