LG’s Gram line of laptops have always been designed to be lightweight and thin, and now the company has releasedthat’s a strong competitor to the likes of Apple’s MacBook Air in the portability department ( ).
LG officially calls its new laptop the Gram SuperSlim (formerly), which the company touts in its as the “thinnest LG Gram ever.” It measures just 0.43 inches thick — thinner than the M2 MacBook Air — and has a 15.6-inch OLED display compared to Apple’s 13.6-inch IPS one. Oh, and LG’s is also lighter at just 2.2 pounds, compared to the MacBook Air at 2.7 pounds.
LG’s Gram Superslim is available now, and itwith a 13th-gen Intel Evo Core i7-1360P processor, 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM, and a 512GB SSD. It also features three USB-C ports (two with Thunderbolt 4 support and one USB 4 only) and a headphone jack.
The better deal comes in at $1,999.99: with a spec bump to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD storage. LG will also throw in its external USB-C 16-inchif you buy either new SuperSlim by May 14th.
It’s worth noting that while the SuperSlim has an OLED screen, the currently-available models only have a 1080p resolution. Apple’s smaller-screened MacBook Air has a higher 2560 x 1664 resolution screen, and still looks great, even if it’s not OLED. Personally, at the price LG has set for the SuperSlim, I’d like to hear more about another 15-inch ultraportable laptop option.
LG first showed off the SuperSlim in January at CES alongside the rest of its Gram lineup, including the company’s regular 14, 15, 16, and 17-inch options, along with theLG Gram Style laptops that, like the SuperSlim, also include an OLED screen and have a starting weight of 2.2 pounds.
