Productivity is the name of the game for LG's latest Gram notebooks. All five new ultra-portable laptops unveiled at CES 2021 by the Korean electronics giant come with 16:10 aspect ratio displays. Compared to the usual 16:9 screen, the squarish 16:10 display offers more screen real estate. Hence, you don't have to scroll as much while editing a document. In addition, the screen bezels are narrow on all four sides.
In a nutshell
- 14, 16 and 17-inch ultra-portable notebooks
- 16:10 aspect ratio displays
- All models are certified for Intel Evo platform
- Larger keyboard and touchpad
The latest Gram laptops maintain the series' reputation for portability — hence the “Gram” moniker. Take the three new clamshell models for instance. The 14-inch (14Z90P) is just under a kilogram, the 16-inch (16Z90P) is around 1.2kg, and the 17-inch version (17Z90P) is 1.35kg. More importantly, the battery capacity in these laptops either remains the same as last year's models (72 watt-hour) or has been increased slightly (80 watt-hour).
The other two new Gram models — the 16-inch (16T90P) and the 14-inch (14T90P) — are 2-in-1 convertibles that can seamlessly switch between tablet and laptop forms. They come with a stylus pen compatible with Wacom AES 2.0 standard.
As you'd expect, the LG Gram notebooks are powered by the latest Intel 11th-generation processors. They are also Intel Evo computers, which basically means they are fast, responsive and have the latest features, such as Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 4.
As with most of the products announced at CES, the pricing and availability of these LG laptops have not been revealed.
