LG is launching its range of Windows laptops for the first time in the US, kicking things off with the slim and light Gram series.
Available in two sizes and a range of configurations, the new laptops are lighter than the MacBook Air. The 14-inch variant weighs only 2.16 lbs — that’s 0.8 lbs less than Apple’s offering, but a wee bit more than 2.03 lbs MacBook.
Both the 13-inch and 14-inch versions are only half an inch thick and feature a 1080p IPS display in a carbon magnesium and lithium magnesium chassis.
They also come with HDMI and USB 3.0 ports as well as slots for microSD cards.
If you’re interested in the 14-inch model, you can choose between an Intel i7 2.4GHz processor with a 256GB SSD for storage, or an i5 2.2GHz chip with a 128GB SSD.
Both variants pack 8GB of RAM, along with a Wolfson Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) for high-quality audio output. LG promises up to 7.5 hours of battery life.
The i7 model costs $1399.99, while the i5 version will run you $999.99.
For $899.99, you can get the 13-inch model with an i5 processor, but without the DAC.
