LG Electronics has made available in the U.S. its latest high-performance LG gram notebooks, which first appeared earlier this month at CES 2018.
The new 15.6-inch model (Full HD IPS display) is equipped with the latest 8th Intel Core i7 processor, up to 16GB DDR4 memory and an up to 1TB solid state drive. It also offers a second SSD drive slot for even more internal storage for large video files.
Its USB Type-C port offers all-in-one functionality that enables users to transfer data, display content, and charge connected devices through a single cord. Thunderbolt 3 allows for compatibility with Mac products, supports data transfer up to eight times faster than USB Type-C and enables transmission of 4K/5K content to exterior displays.
At 2.4 pounds, the notebook features a 72Wh battery that allows longer use without plugging in, lasting up to almost a full day on a single charge.2What's more, the new LG new gram model has passed seven U.S. military MIL-STD 810G durability tests for resistance to impact, pressure and temperature. This improved durability is achieved by the Nano Carbon Magnesium full metal alloy body.
The LG gram 15Z980 comes equipped with Windows 10 Home (64bit) OS, a backlit keyboard and built-in DTS Headphone:X technology to provide the effect of 11.1-channel surround sound.
