New LG Gram Notebooks Announced

Thursday, 14 Dec, 2017

LG today announced that it is planning to unveil new gram laptops at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. There are three different models in the LG Gram range, one with a 13.3 inch display, another with a 14 inch display and one with a 15.6 inch display. The new laptop are expected to include Intel's eight generation quad core processors providing 30% of performance boost over the previous devices.

LG launched its Gram series of notebooks several years ago - in 2014 - and they've been touted as a decent MacBook alternatives since.

All the models will also feature nano carbon magnesium full metal alloy body, which is 20 percent more durable as compared to traditional magnesium products. The 2018 Gram laptops have passed seven US military MIL-STD 810G durability tests for resistance to impact, pressure and temperature.

Second glaring issue in the last gen gram laptops was the lack of backlit keyboard.

LG's new gram models are durable enough to use even in the most extreme environments, passing seven stringent US military MIL-STD 810G durability tests for resistance to impact, pressure and temperature. The precision touchpad enhances fingertip control with a smoother and more accurate pointer system.

LG gram laptops can also be bought with optional features such as Touch Screen, Fingerprint Reader and Thunderbolt 3.

The 2018 Gram laptops will feature a smaller form factor with wider screens. To offer great audio experience, LG has included DTS Headphone:X technology allowing users to enjoy multi-channel sound of up to 11.1 channels and rich 1.5W hi-fi surround sound. The gram series laptops are expected to provide users with versatility and lightweight notebooks for faster processing. LG's latest gram laptops will be available in the U.S. market starting from January 2018 with other markets to follow soon thereafter.
