LG Gram 2017 models now up for sale in the US
It was reported in December that the LG Gram ultrabook family would recieve Kaby Lake, fingerprint scanners, and Thunderbolt 3. While the CES unveiling revealed the first two leaks were true, the same was unfortunately not so for the Thunderbolt 3 port (which turned out to be only USB Type-C). Nevertheless, the LG Gram series look to be a strong set of ultrabooks with 13, 14, and 15-inch variants as well as options for non-touch or touch displays. The models are now on sale in the US for US$1000 and up.
The cheapest model is the LG Gram 13 (non-touch) which should retail for $US999 and packs an i5, 256GB of SSD storage, fingerprint ID, and a 60Wh battery. The 14-inch and 15-inch models will cost you another US$200 for the same specs but with a larger screen. All models can be upgraded with up to Core i7 CPUs, 16GB of memory, and 512GB storage. The maxed-out Gram 15 is still a fairly reasonable US$1699, however. Looking at the models, the 14-inch seems to be the sweet spot in terms of size and portability. Though it's an inch bigger than the Gram 13, they managed to only increase its weight by 0.07 lbs. In comparison, the 15-inch Gram is 0.33 lbs heavier than its 13-inch brother.
