LG may not be as well known for its Windows 10 notebooks, but the company’s Gram line-up are some of the lightest ultrabooks you can buy. Today at CES 2017, the company announced a refresh of its LG Gram notebook range, and all of them will be packing Intel’s latest 7th generation Kaby Lake processors.

Microsoft is assisting LG with the promotion its latest Gram notebooks. The company says that both the 13.3-inch and 14-inch models weigh as little as 2.1 pounds, while the larger 15.6-inch notebook is only a little heavier at 2.4 pounds. All three notebooks will support up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 512GB of onboard solid-state storage.

As well as being very lightweight, there are only tiny bezels on the new LG Gram notebooks, which should provide owners with a near-edgeless touchscreen. The notebooks also come with a 60W battery that the company claims could allow the 13.3-inch version to run for as long as 24 hours from one battery charge. We are a little skeptical of this claim, but we imagine that the battery life for these notebooks is still pretty high given their more efficient processors.

Both the 13.3-inch and 14-inch LG Gram notebooks will include a Daylight Mode, which will help when using the laptops to outside in sunlight by increasing the screen brightness. The 15.6-inch version will also include a Thunderbolt port, as well as additional USB Type-C ports for charging other devices.

The LG Gram range will be available in three metallic colors, dark silver, shiny white and metal rose. Unfortunately, LG has yet to announce any prices or a release date for the new notebooks, but we hope to have that info in the very near future.
