LG Electronics Launches Latest 15-inch LG gram Notebook
A few short weeks after its unveiling at CES 2018, LG has announced availability for the first of its newest premium LG gram notebooks. The 15-inch LG gram model, which is designed as an ultra-portable product with a long-lasting battery, is available for purchase now in the U.S.
"LG continues to engineer the most easy-to-carry notebooks on the market today, while setting new industry standards for battery life and durability," Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA, said in a statement for the new gram notebook. "With the next generation LG gram, U.S. consumers will experience an innovative design that fits a 15.6-inch screen into a remarkably compact body."
The 15Z980 ships with Intel’s new 8th Gen Core i7 processor and SSD storage, LG said. LG touted the fact that the 15-inch gram essentially doubles up on storage space by offering users a second SSD drive slot, unlike “other compact notebooks” that achieve lower weight or smaller size by minimizing interior space. The SSD can be configured to include as much as 1 TB of storage and up to 16 GB DDR4 memory. Additionally, the LG gram notebook’s Full HD IPS display supports “a broad color gamut” that delivers “lifelike” picture quality, LG said.
