LG has officially unveiled their newest ultra portable notebook, the Gram 14, at CES. The new notebook is incredibly slim and light which is always a good thing when you’re lugging it around with you in client calls the entire day.
LG is claiming that the Gram 14 has 23 to 24-hours of battery endurance on a single charge, though take that claim with a grain of salt – the Korean company got that number using a decade-old benchmark, MobileMark 2007. A newer benchmark pegs the actual battery life of the Gram 14 at 17 hours on a single charge, which is far more reasonable (and realistic) than the original 24-hour claim. Why LG would make such an astounding claim with an outdated benchmark we’ll never know.
Aside from the lightweight chassis, the new notebook comes with Intel’s Core i3, i5 and i7 Kaby Lake processors, up to 512GB of SSD storage, 16GB of RAM, a full HD IPS touchscreen display, microSD slot, USB Type-C port and fast charging – 3 hours of battery life with a 20 minute charge.
No idea if this particular notebook will hit our side of the world, though it starts at 1,420,000 won, which is around 59K in our currency.
