CES 2017 | LG updates the Gram family with Kaby Lake processors
No less than eight LG Gram laptops received Kaby Lake processors and DDR4 RAM, next to 256 or 512 GB SSDs. The most impressive is the 13.3-inch, 2.1-pound model with a Core i3-7100U processor and a 60 Wh battery, capable of providing 24 hours of autonomy on a single charge.
LG Gram might not be very popular, mainly due to the pricing of these light notebooks, but they definitely stand out from the crowd. Introduced back in late 2015, the LG Gram family now features Intel Kaby Lake processors and can provide up to an entire day of autonomy on a single charge.
Out of the eight models now available, the only one to provide the amazing battery life mentioned above is the 13.3-inch one. Its variant with a 60 Wh battery weighs 2.1 pounds and is powered by the Intel Core i3-7100U processor. The lightest models feature a 34 Wh battery, and come with the Intel Core i5-7200U processor insider for both the 14-inch and 15.6-inch size. The display of these portables offers 1,920X1,080 pixels in all three sizes available. The internal storage space available is provided by a 256 GB or 512 GB SSD.
Advertised as "All Day Gram," these ultralight portables do not come cheap, their prices starting around $1,100 USD and going all the way up to $2,000 USD. We will get back to them as soon as LG reveals their US launch details, so stay tuned.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
