LG Reveals New Super-Lightweight Laptops With 11th Gen Intel Processors
LG showed off 5 new Gram models at CES 2021.
LG has announced the next series of Gram laptops at CES. There will be five new models that feature a new design and some internal upgrades. The Gram 14, 16, and 17 are clamshell models, while the Gram 2-in-1 14 and 16 are convertibles.
"Synonymous with unprecedented portability and first-class performance, the LG Gram brand continues to raise the bar for the ultra-lightweight and slim laptop market," LG senior vice president Jang Ik-hwan said in a statement. "With sleeker, more refined designs and 16:10 aspect ratio displays while maintaining their light weight, our latest LG Gram lineup gives consumers the ability to enjoy better productivity and more immersive viewing experiences wherever they go."
While changes are coming, the features Gram laptops are known for are sticking around. They're called Grams because they're notoriously lightweight, and the new models follow suit; the Gram 14 is 2.2 pounds, the 16 is 2.62 pounds, and the 17 is 2.98 pounds (the same weight as its predecessor).
Gram laptops are 17 inches, and the new ones will be moving forward with the 17's 16:10 display, which offers more vertical space on the laptop than a 16:9 display. Additionally, LG has said that the new clamshell Grams have a "four-sided slim bezel design" which achieves a screen-to-body ratio of 90%. The keyboards and touchpads on these laptops have also been enlarged to help with comfort and efficiency.
Each model of the 2021 Grams will have an Intel 11th-Gen processor and can have either Iris Xe graphics or UHD graphics. All models are also certified through Intel's Evo program, which certifies that the laptop's battery has at least nine hours of life, can quickly wake from sleep mode, and more. LG claims users could see up to 19.5 hours of battery life from the Gram 16, 16 2-in-1, and 17, so the range of life will presumably be somewhere between nine and 19.5 hours.
Pricing and availability for the 2021 Gram models has yet to be announced.
