Despite its very thin construction, the LG gram 17 is stable and complies with the US military standard MIL-STD-810G, which defines seven criteria for resistance such as extreme temperatures and shock resistance. Unfortunately, LG also does without an external graphics card due to the lack of space, so only the GPU of the Intel CPU is used.
The second model is the LG gram 2-in-1, which is a notebook that can also be used as a tablet thanks to its foldable display. It can also be operated with a pressure-sensitive pen. It is equipped with a FullHD touch display, an Intel Core of the 8th generation, up to 16 GB RAM and a maximum 512 GB M.2 SSD. The interfaces include USB 3.1 Type C, two USB 3.1, an HDMI port and a microSD card reader.
Price and market launch of both models have not yet been announced.
