English term or phrase: aggressively priced
aggressively priced,powerful, thin and light notebook

That's a punchline in a product brochure directly following the title with the product name, therefore I need something short and sort of promotional.
I thought of "scharf kalkuliert" but that sounds a bit old-fashioned to me.

Explanation:
this would be another possibility - I think "scharf kalkuliert" is a good idea, this goes in the same direction...

or: knappest kalkuliert
or: zum Dumpingpreis (but there may be a negative connotation)

hope this helps

für agressive Rechner


Explanation:
das ist wunderbar vieldeutig ... genau wie in der Werbung gewünscht. Kann sich auf den Preis beziehen, aber auch auf Performance ...
