LG Came Out With Its New Gram 13, It’s Ultraportable and Powered to Impress


The notion of desiring a lightweight laptop, that also meets the requirements of a long-lasting battery and full-blown power is not a selfish need. Laptops are always going with the flow, meaning along the flow of what consumers are enjoying. More or less, this specifically relates to the big boys out there that have been setting the supreme examples. Take the Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro as examples. Yes, Apple went with some seriously thin and lovely appeal, yet skimped in some other areas, which has been the big complication with going thin. Sometimes you have to sacrifice things like keyboards and ports, which to some, can be kind of annoying and overall not worth it.

The reason we are in luck, is the new LG Gram 13 laptop series has arrived- which is impressively light, but contains all those ports and connections that you often miss, even the highest-end brands. Although LG has not been producing laptops for that long, it seems like with new models coming out consistently, everything has been getting better and better. The team at LG is truly learning the manufacturing process and exactly what customers want. So as far as the LG Gram, LG managed to correct some issues the first LG Gram 13 model had, by offering the device in 3 different sizes, all the while making these models remarkably lighter than you would expect. Pricing is also something to consider when on a budget, however these are not the low-end laptops that other brands are pushing for. But because they do the job so well, considering the two most notable features, a great battery as well as that ultra portable design, you would have to expect a bit of a higher-price.

The three options include a 13.3 inch model, a 14-inch model, as well as the largest option, the 15.6 inch model. Each Gram laptop has its own options. For example, the 13.3 inch laptop does not initially come with a touchscreen, but comes with a full HD 1920 by 1080 pixel LCD screen, and a 2.5 gigahertz Intel Core i5 7200u processor. Alongside, there are 128 megabytes of Intel HD graphics, 8GB of DDR4 RAM, and a 256GB SSD hard drive. Ports include two USB 3.0s, one USB Type-C, a microSD card slot, and an HDMI output.

Still focusing on the $1,000 13-inch model, there’s a lot to like, such as its comfortable backlit keyboard, or its highly responsive touchpad with a fingerprint reader featuring Windows Hello. You can also have this device with a touchscreen, for a hundred dollars more. For weight and battery life, the LG Gram 13 is made from a magnesium-alloy shell. Provided, that could give users a sense of having less stability than an aluminum chassis, but guys, this thing weighs just 2 pounds. Also, props to LG on spawning something so thin, all the while setting us up with a decent number ports, and even a webcam. Lastly, all of the internal components are enough to not only get an array of daily tasks done, but with 11.5 hours of battery life, any on-the-move worker could travel with this guy and not worry about the dreaded power warning. As mentioned, more model options are there for the taking, just expect the Core i7, 512GB SSD, and 16GB of memory to cost ya quite a bit more dough.
