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.

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

hope this helps
