LG’s Gram line of laptops has always been designed to be light and thin, and now the company has launched a new “SuperSlim” model it’s a serious competitor to Apple’s MacBook Air in the portability department (via Engadget).
LG is officially calling its new laptop the Gram SuperSlim (formerly the Ultrathin), which the company touts in its Press release as the “thinnest LG Gram ever”. It’s just 0.43 inches thick – thinner than the MacBook Air M2 – and has a 15.6-inch OLED display compared to Apple’s 13.6-inch IPS display. Oh, and LG 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 it from $1,699.99 with a 13th Gen Intel Evo Core i7-1360P processor, 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and a 512GB SSD. It also has three USB-C ports (two with Thunderbolt 4 support and one USB 4 only) and a headphone jack.
The best deal is $1,999.99: with specs bumped to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD storage. LG will also launch its 16-inch external USB-C +see Portable monitor if you buy either new SuperSlim before May 14th.
It’s worth noting that while the SuperSlim has an OLED display, currently available models only have 1080p resolution. Apple’s smaller-screen MacBook Air has a higher resolution 2560 x 1664 display and still looks great, even though it’s not OLED. Personally, at LG’s pricing for the SuperSlim, I’d love to hear about another 15-inch ultraportable laptop option. it’s the rumor.
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, as well as the colorful featherweight LG Gram Style laptops which, like the SuperSlim, also include an OLED display and have a starting weight of 2.2 pounds.
