Following announcements on TVs, a cooking range, and a standing vacuum, LG is bringing to CES 2021 its line-up of five new Gram laptops.

LG Gram laptops have long been defined by being light, portable, having a good battery life, and I’d like to add, a nice sexy finish. This time around, LG has them with 16:10 aspect ratio screens to give us a bit more screen real estate.

All of the LG Gram laptops are Intel Evo Platform verified, powered by an 11th Gen Intel Core processor with Iris Xe Graphics and LPDDR4x memory. Three of them come with 80Wh high-density batteries to ensure longer periods of use between charges.

Intel's Evo platform, which was announced in September last year, means that notebooks that are branded "Intel Evo" will meet certain standards of performance and experiences. For example, Evo notebooks with Full-HD displays will have to be able to provide over 9 hours of battery life in "real world" usage on a single charge. They must also be able to fast charge (four hours usage in 30 minutes of charging), wake from sleep in under a second, support Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 4, and be powered by Intel’s 11th generation Core (Tiger Lake) processor with Intel Iris Xe graphics.

The five new models, the LG Gram 17 (model 17Z90P), LG Gram 16 (model 16Z90P), LG Gram 14 (model 14Z90P), LG Gram 2-in-1 16 (model 16T90P), and LG Gram 2-in-1 14 (model 14T90P) all feature slimmer bezels and larger keyboards and touchpads for faster, easier typing without compromising the portability of these compact devices in addition to the larger screen. Despite the larger screen, the LG Gram 17 weighs just 1.35kg.

The two new convertible models come with a stylus pen compatible with Wacom AES 2.0 for enhanced navigation and control for a smooth, precise writing and drawing experience.

Visitors to LG’s virtual CES 2021 showroom will be able to view the new laptops from January 11 to 14.
