The LG Gram Arrives In The US
LG has been a celebrated household name in consumer electronics - the South Korean tech giant is recognized by their strong line-up of solid smartphones, home appliances such as televisions, washing machines, and refrigerators, as well as peripherals and accessories. Now, the company is debuting its premium Ultrabooks to the West to capitalize on the momentum and success of Microsoft's Windows 10. Meet the LG Gram -- an ultra lightweight laptop that wants to go head to head with Apple's MacBook Air and Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro.
LG had named its latest laptop as Gram for its ultra lightweight -- it's lighter than even an 11-inch MacBook Air at 980 grams or 2.16 pounds. The company even priced it rather competitively against Cupertino's range, with starting suggest retail price going for $899.
The Gram starts out with an Intel Core i5-5200U processor clocked at 2.2GHz that can boost up to 2.70GHz. It comes with 8GB of DDRL RAM and its storage goes with a 128GB SSDR SATA 3. Its 13.3" Full HD display is powered with an Intel HD Graphics 5500, and it comes with DTS Sound enabled speakers. Ports and connections are fairly straightforward with a standard HDMI slot, two USB 3.0 ports, a microSD port, an Ethernet port, an audio jack and a DC-in jack. Battery life based on MobileMark 2014 can go up to 7.5 hours of usage.
A step further up the ladder will yield a bigger display at 14 inches, with the weight still retained at 980 grams. Specifications are somewhat similar to the 13-inch variant, although it now comes a carbon magnesium and lithium magnesium body, as well as a Wolfson DAC to deliver Hi-Fi audio. It will also come with a $999 SRP.
Lastly, the top offering for the Gram comes with the same 14 inches Full HD resolution, but it now comes with an Intel Core i7-5500U clocked at 2.4GHz that can boost up to 3.00GHz. Storage also receives an upgrade coming at 256GB SSD SATA 3. The price would be a bit steep at $1399.00.
The LG Ultra would prove to be a welcomed addition to the world of ultrabooks as it brings superb processing performance without the bulk and weight that come with other full-sized laptops. Amazon is now offering all of the three variants now. However, stocks are fairly limited, but more are expected to come along the way.
