LG’s Gram laptops have always been designed to be light and thin, and now the company has released it a new “SuperSlim” model that’s a strong competitor to Apple’s MacBook Air in terms of portability (through engaged).
LG is officially calling its new laptop the Gram SuperSlim (formerly the Ultraslim), which the company touts in it press release as the “thinnest LG Gram ever”. It’s just 0.43 inches thick – thinner than the M2 MacBook Air – and has a 15.6-inch OLED display compared to Apple’s 13.6-inch IPS display. Oh, and LG’s is also lighter at just 2.2 pounds, compared to the MacBook Air at 2.7 pounds.
LG’s Gram Superslim is now available, and it starts at $1,699.99 with a 13th generation Intel Evo Core i7-1360P processor, 16 GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 512 GB SSD. It also features three USB-C ports (two with Thunderbolt 4 support and one USB 4 only) and a headphone jack.
The better deal costs $1,999.99: with a spec bump up to 32GB of RAM and 2TB of SSD storage. LG will also throw in its external USB-C 16-inch +view Portable monitor if you buy a new SuperSlim before May 14.
It’s worth noting that while the SuperSlim has an OLED screen, the currently available models only have 1080p resolution. Apple’s smaller MacBook Air has a higher-resolution 2560 x 1664 display and still looks great, even if it’s not OLED. Personally, at the price LG has set for the SuperSlim, I’d like to hear more about another rumored 15-inch ultraportable laptop option.
LG first showed off the SuperSlim at CES in January alongside the rest of its Gram lineup, including the company’s regular 14, 15, 16 and 17-inch options, along with the colorful featherweight LG Gram Style laptops that , like the SuperSlim, also contain an OLED screen and have a starting weight of 2.2 kilos.
