LG Electronics, a consumer durable major in India, today announced the launch of its new range of innovative ultraportable laptops called “Gram”. LG gram 17-inch variant weights only 2.95 pounds (1.3 kg), and is claimed to be world’s lightest laptop that offers true portability by Guinness World Records in February 2019, the company said in a statement. The LG gram loptops come with 17-inch, 15.6 inch and 14-inch variants. All three models will be available for sales online at Amazon from next week.
The 14-inch variant -LG 14Z990-V will be available for Rs 95,000, while the 15.6-inch variant – 15Z990-V – will be available for Rs 98,000. The 17-inch variant – 17Z990-V – will be available for Rs 1,26,000.
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 precise color reproduction. The display’s 16:10 ratio offers more screen economy than the usual 16:9 format, making it ideal for image- and video-editing, viewing multiple documents and a variety of other applications, it said. “The new model is a great choice for media and business professionals who require an extremely portable large-screen laptop that provides strong performance.”
Where most 17-inch laptops weight more than four pounds, the LG gram 17 weighs in at a mere one kg and is believed to be the lightest 17-inch laptop in the market. The new LG gram 17 features a 72W battery that allows up to 19.5 hours of operation on a single charge, giving users more time on the go.
