LG has announced the latest lineup of the LG Gram series of laptops, now available in 14-inch, 16-inch and 17-inch screen sizes. The main focus of this ultrabook range is, of course, light weight and portability. To back up this claim, LG is advertising that the LG Gram 17, which features a 17-inch display, weighs just 1.35 kg — an impressive feat by all means. The lightest of the lot is the LG Gram 14, which weighs under a kilo at 999g. LG says that its new generation Gram laptops are also just 16.8mm thick, but that might not set any records. It further claims no performance compromise — the Korean electronics giant advertises up to 11th gen Intel processors, LPDDR4X RAM and integrated Iris Xe graphics to boot.
LG Gram 17, 16 and 14: price, availability
The exact dates of availability of the new LG Gram 17, 16 and 14 laptops have not been announced by the company, and the new range still shows ‘coming soon’ on the official LG India website. However, LG has claimed that once units arrive, the LG Gram series of laptops will be available at all authorised online and offline retail outlets in India. LG has not announced SKU specific prices, either, and stated instead that the range’s pricing starts at Rs 74,999. More details should be listed here once the laptops are officially available.
The LG Gram 17, 16 and 14 laptops are powered by either the Intel Core i5-1135G7 or the Core i7-1165G7 processors. Base configurations come with 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB M.2 SSD for storage, and the LG Gram 14 (model number 14Z90P) starts off with a 1920 x 1200, 16:10 IPS display. It covers 99 percent of the DCI-P3 colour gamut, and offers a refreshed backlit keyboard and trackpad for ease of usage. LG claims up to 25.5 hours of battery usage with the Gram 14.
In terms of connectivity, the LG Gram 14 gets two USB-C 4.0 ports with DisplayPort and Thunderbolt support, along with a full-size HDMI and a 3.5mm audio port. Other features include the fingerprint sensor integrated in the power button, and DTS:X Surround certified laptop speakers. The laptop also comes with military grade durability certification.
The LG Gram 17 (17Z90P) and Gram 16 (16Z90P) come with 2560 x 1600, 16:10 IPS displays, and both are offered in Core i5 and Core i7 configurations with the above mentioned processors. Performance specs go all the way up to 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and 512GB SSD, making it apt for ultrabooks. The 17-inch laptop is certified to offer 19.5 hours of battery life, while the Gram 16 offers 22 hours. They get the same number of ports, speakers, trackpad and durability ratings, while the keyboard itself is the same but with an added number pad.
