Even though LG seems set to showcase the new convertible at CES 2019, retailers like Best Buy are already listing the device for a starting price of $1500. The official product page shows everything we can expect from the first Gram 2-in-1 including Whiskey Lake-U with no 4K UHD options whatsoever.

We reported early last month that LG may be in the midst of refreshing its super-light Gram series of laptops for the 2019 calendar year. Now just a few weeks later, LG has confirmed the existence of at least one of the laptops: the 14-inch Gram 2-in-1 (14T990).

The official landing page for the Gram 2-in-1 shows the system in all its glory with a similar chassis design to the discontinued Gram 14. The MIL-STD 810G certification returns along with the the matte gray color scheme. New to the series is the Gorilla Glass 5 touchscreen for improved rigidity and the 360-degree hinges for added versatility.

The convertible form factor will carry some drawbacks. When compared to the traditional Gram 14, the Gram 14 2-in-1 is slightly thicker (0.7" vs. 0.6") and slightly heavier (1.15 kg vs. 0.970 kg). Even so, 1.15 kg is very light and even lighter than the MacBook Air 2018. LG Gram laptops are notable for being some of the lightest Ultrabooks in the market and this latest iteration will continue the trend.

The LG Gram 14 2-in-1 is now available for $1500 USD with a Whiskey Lake Core i7-8565U CPU, 512 GB M.2 SSD, 16 GB of DDR4 RAM, and a FHD display. Check out the official product page here for more information on the convertible.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
