LG Gram updated with 60 Wh battery and Kaby Lake processor for 24 hours of autonomy
LG Gram with 60 Wh battery
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.

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.
