It is for the same reason that LG unveiled the 2019 LG gram models to deliver convenience with a performance that many women seek when they seek to get a better balance in their lives.
“The LG gram has beautiful displays, compelling design, and enough power for productivity. It has evolved in accordance with what consumers have been asking for – super-light laptops that pair performance with optimum portability,” says LG East Africa Marketing & Corporate Communications Manager Maureen Kemunto.
LG through its lightweight devices such as the LG gram 17 stays true to laptop’s winning formula, balancing smart technology and user demands with a level of portability.
Having been introduced during the CES, this device bridges the gap between portability and performance that any distance learner would appreciate.
The 17-inch LG gram comes with a Wide Quad Extended Graphics Array display that has twice the pixels (2560 x 1600) of a standard Full HD screen, resulting in highly detailed images with incredibly precise color reproduction. 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.
The lightweight makes it easy for users to enjoy a large-screen experience wherever they go.
Contrary to what its size might suggest, the 17-inch LG gram is a powerhouse portable workstation. With the newest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processor and up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, the laptop works efficiently and smoothly, even when running the most resource-thirsty files and apps. The laptop comes with a 256GB solid-state drive (SSD) and has an extra slot for an additional SSD, allowing double the onboard storage.
