Best ultraportable laptop for under $1500CAD

Hi all,

Anyone know of any deals on ultraportable laptops? Criteria are:
1) Size and weight (similar to macbook air type dimensions and weight)
2) Running Windows or ios
3) Reliable (will be used for work)

Is 16GB of ram the bare minimum I should be going for nowadays? Seems like so many laptops only come with 8gb.

So far I've looked at ASUS, Macbook Air, Lenovo, and Dell XPS 13. Any others I should be considering? TIA!

If you are willing to buy used, I will have my XPS 13 in BST soon. i7-8550u quad core, 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD, QHD+ touchscreen, fingerprint reader

Thanks guys and gals, I decided on an XPS13. @mystery, it'll be for work so they need a receipt- thanks for the offer though, those are some sick specs :)

I love my Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th gen. It's the best ThinkPad I've had by far and much better than previous generation X1 Carbons.

It should be on sale these days as the 7th gen just came out, Price will be under $1,500 depending on the options. Make sure to use their Friends and Family website entry. There's a megathread on that.
