Computers LG gram 17 and LG gram 2-in-1
Where most 17-inch laptops tip the scale at more than two kilograms, the LG gram 17 weighs in at a mere 1,340 grams to claim the title of the lightest 17-inch laptop on the market. Additionally, the new model features a highly efficient 72W battery that allows up to 19.5 hours of operation on a single charge1, meaning users can get more done without having to worry about tracking down a power outlet. Slim and stylish, the LG gram is also tough, complying with stringent U.S. military MIL-STD-810G durability criteria covering seven resilience factors.
Also new to the 2019 lineup is another CES Innovation Award winner is the LG gram 2-in-1. This creative portable computer conveniently folds to transform from laptop to tablet and back again. The unit cleverly integrates a 360-degree hinge to maximize versatility and creativity possibilities. Thanks to its unique hinge structure the 2-in-1 functions as both a laptop and tablet, letting users choose the mode they prefer for their favorite activities such as browsing the web, watching videos or creating and viewing content.
But this versatility doesn't mean that the LG gram 2-in-1 is delicate. On the contrary, this device also meets the U.S. military MIL-STD-810G standard for durability. The convertible laptop comes with a Wacom AES 2.0 Pen with 4,096 pressure levels and tilt detection, enabling a natural, precise drawing experience. The LG gram 2-in-1 features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 which is known for its resistance against drops, scratches or bumps to help protect its gorgeous display. ■
