LG will reveal the latest entries in its ultra-light gram laptop line at CES 2019 – the new LG gram 17 (model 17Z990) and 14-inch LG gram 2-in-1 (model 14T990), both 2019 CES Innovation Award winners.
Adding more processing power and all-around usability, the LG gram 17 balances technology and features with a level of portability previously thought impossible for a laptop this size. The 14-inch model is a 2-in-1 “convertible” laptop which conveniently folds to transform from laptop to tablet and back again, for a versatile on-the-go computing solution.
LG gram 17
While many competing products force consumers to choose between portability and performance, the LG gram 17 sacrifices neither, successfully delivering on both fronts. A CES 2019 Innovation Awards honoree, it offers speed, power and a generous 17-inch high-resolution display all within a 15.6-inch class body.
The 17-inch LG gram is equipped with a Wide Quad Extended Graphics Array (WQXGA) display that has twice the pixels (2560 x 1600) of a standard Full HD screen, resulting in highly detailed images with incredibly precise color reproduction. The display’s 16:10 ratio offers more screen real estate than the usual 16:9 format, making it ideal for image- and video-editing, viewing multiple documents simultaneously and a host of other applications. The new model is a great choice for media prosumers and business professionals who require an extremely portable large-screen laptop that provides strong performance.
Where most 17-inch laptops tip the scale at more than two kilograms, the LG gram 17 weighs in at a mere 1,340 grams to claim the title of the lightest 17-inch laptop on the market. The light weight makes it easy for you to enjoy a large-screen experience wherever you go.
Additionally, the new model features a highly efficient 72W battery that allows up to 19.5 hours of operation on a single charge, meaning you can get more done without having to worry about tracking down a power outlet. Slim and stylish, the LG gram is also tough, complying with stringent U.S. military MIL-STD-810G durability criteria covering seven resilience factors including shock, dust and extreme temperatures.
Contrary to what its size might suggest, the 17-inch LG gram is a powerhouse portable workstation. With the newest 8th Generation Intel Core processor and up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, the laptop works efficiently and smoothly, even when running the most resource-thirsty files and apps. The laptop comes with a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD) and has an extra slot for an additional SSD, allowing double the onboard storage.
The LG gram 17 incorporates a variety of features that bring more convenience to your life. The inclusion of ThunderboltTM 3 means you can charge devices, transfer files and display content via a single port. It has transfer speeds of up to 40 gigabits per second, eight times faster than a conventional USB 3.0 connection. Meanwhile, the laptop’s Precision Glass Touchpad ensures responsive control and offers four-point touch recognition. A backlit keyboard with two brightness settings makes it possible to use the laptop in dim environments.
For immersive surround sound on the go, DTS Headphone X realistically simulates the 11.1 channel array found in movie theaters. Enhancing security and saving time, the accurate fingerprint reader enables you to power on and log in simultaneously.
LG gram 2-in-1
Also new to the 2019 lineup is another CES Innovation Award winner is the LG gram 2-in-1. This creative portable computer conveniently folds to transform from laptop to tablet and back again. Presenting users with unparalleled flexibility, the LG gram 2-in-1 is sure to satisfy those seeking a truly versatile on-the-go computing solution.
The convertible model boasts a distinctive form factor with 14-inch large touch screen maintaining ultra-light weight. The unit cleverly integrates a 360-degree hinge to maximize versatility and creativity possibilities. Thanks to its unique hinge structure the 2-in-1 functions as both a laptop and tablet, letting you choose the mode you prefer. But this versatility doesn’t mean that the LG gram 2-in-1 is delicate. On the contrary, this device also meets the U.S. military MIL-STD-810G standard for durability.
The convertible laptop comes with a Wacom AES 2.0 Pen with 4,096 pressure levels and tilt detection, enabling a natural, precise drawing experience. The LG gram 2-in-1 features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which is known for its resistance against drops, scratches or bumps to help protect its gorgeous display. What’s more, the 2-in-1 convertible employs LG’s IPS display technology guaranteeing outstanding picture quality from any viewing angle. Powered by a large 72W battery, this gram can operate for up to 21 hours between charges.
Visitors to LG’s booth at CES 2019 will experience first-hand the new features of the 2019 LG gram models.
