Being a student is not that easy. You always have to run in order to get on time for class, be ready with the project before deadlines and be very flexible. Nowadays, the studying is happening mostly online, so a student will make a great use of a laptop, that could handle every task he/she has, right? At least I as a student think so…
That’s when laptops like the new 2018 LG Gram come in handy! It is a machine that could cope with all your demands, workload and everything you have to do at all times. Fully packed with hardware inside, the LG Gram is constructed in a way that it could handle hard drops/falls, so you won’t have to think that you’ll break it if you get it with you to school. I like the very idea of creating such a laptop and I fully support it. It is an all around device that is suitable for everyday situations.
What’s the laptop about?
The fact that it’s aimed at students does not mean that it is made only for that. Actually, the LG Gram 2018 is extremely lightweight, powerful, good-looking, thin and ultra-portable as a whole! With a device that weights 950grams, you’ll not even feel that it is in your hand or backpack. This is essential for people who need to carry numerous things with themselves, which makes the laptop perfect for business purposes as well. Just don’t let the fact that it is aimed at students to fool you that the price is low… that’s surely not the case.
Design and display
The LG Gram 15.6-inch laptop can offer you an impressive screen size without the weight. With gram’s innovative design and construction, this laptop weighs less than 1 kilogram (2,5 pounds), so it’s easy to take anywhere as I mentioned above. The reason behind the low-weight is the sleek metal alloy body construction of the LG gram that combines advanced nano carbon with magnesium to create a lightweight yet durable housing for the computer that’s still beautifully thin, less than 0.7″ thick.
What I like as an improvement from the last LG Gram 2017 is that they moved the camera from the lower lid to the upper one, so that people will have a better look at you, instead of your nose. I don’t know why manufacturers still continue to use this method of placement, as it is super bad… Another change is the “gram” branding on the back of the laptop, that has been changed to a LG logo and moved to the upper left corner, instead of staying in the middle.
The cutting-edge design gives the LG gram laptop a roomy 15.6″ Full HD IPS touchscreen display. It offers exceptional clarity from virtually any viewing angle and is ideally sized for work or play. The ultra-slim bezel surrounding the Full HD IPS screen not only allows more viewable area in a more compact form factor, but it accentuates the stunning picture quality in exquisite style with minimal distraction.
