This family of light portables comes with Broadwell processors, Windows 10 without any trace of bloatware, and a design that makes it a direct competitor for Apple's MacBook air.

Although LG already launched a few laptops in the past, the company had portables for the US so far. The LG gram lineup is the first one to hit the US market and also comes as a Microsoft "Signature Series" family. This means the gram laptops only come with "pure" Microsoft Windows 10, without any bloatware.

The new LG gram laptops mentioned in the press release use Broadwell processors and start at $900 USD. The 13-inch model uses an Intel Core i5-5200U processor, 8 GB of memory and 128 GB of SSD storage. The 14-inch LG gram can be acquired with a Core i5-5200U processor and 128 GB of SSD storage or with a Core i7-5500U and a 256 GB SSD under the hood. They start at $999.99 USD and $1,399.99 USD.

The ultralight LG gram laptops weigh around 2.1 pounds and use a body made of carbon magnesium and lithium magnesium that is only 0.5-inches thin. They can be already purchased from Amazon and will also hit Microsoft stores in the US soon. For more details, please check the official press release below.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
