Korean electronics giant LG is well known on the market for its amazing televisions, smartphones and many other appliances. However, it looks like the giant company is also a computer manufacturer.
This is a fact that probably not so many people know, especially American shoppers, because LG has only sold their laptops in a few other countries.
Well, it looks like the company is prepared to attack a more crowded market, releasing their new laptop in the US for the first time. The series will start with some incredible models, one-13inch and two-14-inch devices.
Each of these models will have slim, lightweight bodies, full HD IPS displays and Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors.
The new LG Gram 13 and LG Gram 14 models will be available starting with the price of 899 dollars, going up to 1,399 dollars. LG named its new model “Gram,” because it weighs only 980 grams.
To be added that the new Gram is lighter compared with Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air, but it is not the lightest model on the market. Lenovo’s LaVie Z still has the first place.
Moreover, the 1,399 dollars model comes with a 14-inch display and it is powered by a fifth-generation Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB of Ram and a large 256GB SSD flash drive. It is probably a coincidence, but the new Gram looks like Apple’s MacBook models, stating from the island-style keyboard to the minimalist exterior. However, this is a style that many other brands have adopted before.
Probably, the main attraction on this laptop is its weight. Not to mention that the lightweight laptop also includes a Core i7 processor. To be mentioned that the chassis is made of lithium magnesium and carbon magnesium alloys. Moreover, the Gram comes in a color that was never met on the market, a color that LG calls Champagne Gold. This color gives the laptop a warmer look, instead of having a silver, black or grey body.
The display on the laptop is a 1,920×1,080 IPS screen and it doesn’t have a touchscreen capability. Moreover, it works on Microsoft’s newest operating system, called Windows 10.
