CES 2018 | LG Gram ultrabooks with 8th generation Intel Core processors coming to the US next month
Those fans of the ultrabook sector who are not into portables made by Apple or Asus will be happy to hear that the new Samsung Notebook 9 models will not be alone at next month's trade show in Las Vegas since the updated LG Gram lineup will also be on display at CES 2018. Even better, LG has just announced that these ultralight notebooks will go on sale in the US by the end of January.
Introduced back in 2014, the LG Gram has already reached a level where many reviewers consider it to be the best machine in its niche. According to the official press release, "the LG 2018 gram laptops push the boundaries of portable computing with improved mobility and durability, as well as upgraded processors and more versatile functionality."
While the specs and features are expected to be similar to those of the updated Notebook 9 ultrabooks by Samsung, the new LG Gram models promise to deliver up to 22.5/21.5/19 hours of autonomy on a single charge (these figures are for the 13.3/14/15.6-inch models, based on 2014 MobileMark criteria).
Other highlights mentioned by LG's announcement include a boot time of under 10 seconds, a second SSD drive slot, a rugged design that has been tested to comply with the MIL-STD 810G military standard for resistance to impact, pressure, and temperature, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, DTS Headphone X for up to 11.1-channel sound, and more.
These being said, we should get ready to see the updated LG Gram next month at CES. LG will be present at booth #11100 in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, so if you happen to be there in January (9th to 12th), now you know exactly where you should go for an encounter with next year's LG Gram.
