LG gram Ultraslim and gram Style laptops were just unveiled at this week’s CES. Even LG’s gram laptop line – already among the lightest and slimmest laptops around – needed to shed some holiday bulk, it seems. The electronics giant’s new gram Ultraslim laptop shaves nearly 7mm off its predecessor, bringing its thickness to a svelte 10.99mm (less than half an inch for Americans languishing under the Imperial system) despite the inclusion of a beefy 15.6” OLED screen.
A 13th-gen Intel Raptor Lake CPU delivers plenty of processing power, and an ultra-compact power adapter keeps the whole assembly juiced up. RAM ranges from 8GB to 32GB, and buyers can choose between 256GB to 1TB of storage. Two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a singular USB-C connection, and a 3.5mm audio out round out the I/O stats. Even with all these goodies, the laptop weighs just over two pounds.
Those not impressed by the LG Ultraslim can consider the other new additions to LG’s laptop line; the gram Style 14- and 16-inch variants. For the Style line, LG introduced a “glass design” that, in practice, gives the laptop shell an iridescent finish. They’ve also hidden the touchpad: at first glance, it simply looks like it’s missing, but users can reveal its boundaries by dragging a finger across the surface.
Style comes with added thickness: both laptops measure just under 16mm, though the 14-inch version is still about as light as the Ultraslim. They also retain the OLED screens and Raptor Lake CPU. The Style variants also include two Thunderbolt 4 ports, but the similarities end there: a USB 3.1 connection, a Micro SD slot, and a 3.5mm audio port round out the available connections. LG will announce pricing and availability later this year.
