LG Announces 14-inch Gram 2-in-1 Convertible Weighing Just 2.5 Pounds

LG gram 02
Last week, we brought you leaked details of the LG Gram 17 ultrabook that manages to weigh in at an unbelievably light (for its size) 2.95 pounds. Today, LG officially confirmed that notebook and announced another: the LG Gram 2-in-1.

The Gram 2-in-1 is dominated by its 14-inch display, which has a Full HD resolution (1920x1080). The IPS touch display is covered in Gorilla Glass 5 for added strength/protection and features a 360-degree hinge. More importantly, the Gram 2-in-1 only weighs 2.5 pounds which makes it a boon for mobile warriors.

Powering the convertible is an unspecified Intel 8th generation Core processor. But for reference, the Gram 17 uses a Whiskey Lake-based Core i7-8565U processor. As you might expect from a device this thin and light, you won't find a dedicated GPU from AMD or NVIDIA, but instead Intel UHD graphics. You'll also be able to option the machine with either 8GB or 16GB of DDR4 memory onboard and your choice of a 256GB or 512GB SSD.

Other items of note include a backlit keyboard, one USB 3.1 Type-C port, two USB 3.1 Type-A ports, an HDMI post, and a microSD slot. The Gram 2-in-1 also includes a fingerprint reader, LG Stylus Pen (Wacom AES2.0 compatible) and is MIL-STD-810g certified.

Wrapping things up, LG includes a 72Whr battery that provides up to an amazing 21 hours of runtimes between charges. That's quite impressive for a device that weighs less than 3 pounds, but we'll take that figure with a grain of salt until we get some hands-on time with the machine.

The LG Gram 2-in-1 will be on display at CES 2019, and we're assuming pricing will be announced closer to that public unveil.
