We have more details about the new LG Gram 2-in-1 laptop, thanks to Best Buy.
Just a few days after we posted the first image of the upcoming 14 inch convertible notebook, Best Buy put up a web page showing that a model with an Intel Core i7-8565U processor, 16GB of RAM, and 512GB of solid state storage will sell for $1500.
Update: The Best Buy web page has been taken down.
There’s no word on the release date, but LG has a habit of announcing new LG Gram laptops a week or two ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show and beginning to sell them sometime in the following months.
For the most part, the Best buy listing is in keeping with what we already knew about the laptop, but now we have more details about the spec sheet, and it turns out the notebook will weigh 2.53 pounds, which makes it a little lighter than expected (I’d initially heard it would be a 2.6 pound notebook).
Here’s a run-down of the specs and features:
- 14 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel touchscreen display + 360 degree hinge
- Wacom AES 2.0 pen
- Intel Core i7-8565U processor
- 16GB DDR4-2400 memory
- 512GB SSD
- Fingerprint reader
- 2 x USB 3.1 Type-A ports
- 1 USB 3.1 Type-C port
- Headphone jack
- Gigabit WiFi
- USB C to Ethernet adapter
- microSD card reader
- Backlit keyboard
- 12″ x 8.3″ x 0.7″
- 2.53 pounds
The laptop has a magnesium alloy case, relatively slim screen bezels, and a webcam located above the display.
The LG Gram lineup has been around for a few years, and typically features thin and light notebooks that weigh… about a kilogram (2.2 pounds). LG has been stretching the name recently to include slightly heavier machines, but even the upcoming LG Gram 17 weighs less than 3 pounds, showing that the company has remained surprisingly consistent with its commitment to lightweight, portable notebooks with a variety of screen sizes.
But the LG Gram 2-in-1 is the company’s first convertible tablet-style model, and at 2.5 pounds, it’s one of the lightest 14 inch convertibles around.
