The South Korean firm has announced new LG Gram ultrabook for CES 2018. Like Samsung with the Notebook series 9 that we saw recently, LG does not have too much catalogue in personal computers, but what has highlights in some aspects. In this case for its lightness and mobility.
The name of LG Gram is well chosen because the low weight stands out on the other features, which with the update that is announced are not minor. The firm will commercialize three models with a screen size of 13.3, 14 and 15.6 inches with tremendously adjusted respective weights of 965, 995 and 1095 grams.
The screens are multi-touch with Full HD resolution, and its chassis is made of a magnesium alloy and carbon fibre, which in addition to lightness offers resistance to the MIL-STD 810G military standard. Intel Core 8th Generation processors shimmer inside. And you know what it means, the first time that Intel brings the quad core to the ‘U’ series for the lightest computers on the market.
LG will offer configurations with 8 and 16 Gbytes of DDR4 memory, and for storage, one or two solid state drives to PCIe. Attention to their autonomy because LG cites that with one of the selected batteries of 72 Wh, the equipment will be able to work from 19 to 22 hours. With Windows 10 pre-installed will be displayed at CES 2018 where availability and price will be announced.
Seeing these LG Gram, the Samsung Notebook 9 series and the multitude of ultraportables that we will see at the fair in Las Vegas with a similar configuration, comes to mind the recent announcement of Windows on ARM. What uninformed user can spend 1,000 euros on those computers seeing what is coming …? It’s up to you.
