ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA announced today an expansion in its lineup of premium, high-performance "LG gram" laptop computers – the LG gram 15 series, now available at B&H, Fry's, Microcenter and on Amazon.com.
The two new 15-inch models in the LG gram 15 series, building on the success of LG's inaugural lineup of 13- and 14-inch ultra-lightweight laptops, are perfect for the everyday user looking for a high-performance laptop that is extremely lightweight with a modern, sleek design that doesn't sacrifice screen size.
The LG gram 15 is among the lightest 15-inch laptops in the world – weighing in at a mere 2.2 pounds, yet providing a screen real estate of 15.6 inches without the weight. The LG gram 15 combines an ultra-slim form that measures just 0.7 inches thin with a durable design that stands up to everyday life with its innovative magnesium alloy construction, allowing it to be taken on-the-go with ease.
"LG is building on our expertise in consumer electronics as well as our proven leadership in both technology and design innovation to deliver our best laptops yet to U.S. consumers," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "With the LG gram 15 series, consumers will experience a full 15-inch screen size in a slim, lightweight laptop without sacrificing performance, speed, or the ever-important connectivity options."
Support for Best-in-Class Software Providers
The LG gram 15 comes fully equipped with Windows 10, including Cortana and Microsoft Edge for a more personal and productive computing experience. Despite its 0.7-inch thin profile, the LG gram delivers powerful processing power with the latest sixth-generation Intel Core processor – the Intel Core i5 or i7, depending on the model. For multimedia enthusiasts, it has a solid state drive that can be configured to include as much as 512GB of storage, more than twice the amount of the previous model, and also offers up to 8GB DDR3 memory.
Lightweight Design, High-Performance Features and Connectivity
The LG gram series provides users with the portability of a slim, lightweight laptop design without sacrificing performance, speed or access to a plethora of connectivity options. It supports the latest standards for connectivity, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology. New for this year, the LG gram 15 features a USB-C port for added connectivity and power options. Via the USB-C port, users can enjoy versatility in connectivity for data transfers and the ability to charge power on the laptop. The LG gram 15 also features USB 3.0, a micro-USB and micro-SD slot, and comes with an HDMI port, which is uncommon among laptops of this size and weight.
Following in the tradition of LG's breathtaking TV displays, the LG gram 15 also offers a rich viewing experience with Full HD (1920x1080) resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio for a more lifelike, immersive viewing experience, ideal for video viewing. The display also features LG's In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, which ensures accurate color saturation and contrast, even at wide viewing angles. With a super thin bezel, the LG gram fits a 15.6-inch, Full HD, IPS display within a revolutionary design.
What's more, the LG gram 15 boasts these additional high-performance features with the everyday user in mind:
- Instant Booting: With the LG gram 15's instant boot feature, the operating system starts up immediately when the user opens the display, whether it's totally powered off or simply in sleep/hibernation mode.
