Everywhere else in the world, LG laptops are something of a regularity — but reading that sentence in the United States may warrant a question mark.
Yes, LG does produce laptops and as of today, is introducing the Gram series to the United States, starting on Amazon and the Microsoft Store. Still running fifth, not sixth generation Intel Core processors, they may be slightly behind on the times, but still are venerable 13- and 14-inch systems. The lightest machine weighs 980g (2.16lbs), but still offers a 1080p display, microSD card slot and HDMI-out.
Pricing $899 for a 13-inch version with a Core i5 chip, 8GB of RAM and 128GB solid-state drive. The 14″ costs $999 with similar specs, or $1,399 for one with a Core i7 processor and a 256GB SSD.
While the build quality isn’t in the same ranks as an ASUS Zenbook, Dell XPS 13 or even a Macbook Air, LG does have a nice little offering here.
