LG Gram Laptop Has Some Compromises
We had a quick demo of LGs Gram ultra book at CES and now it is out in the wild with some hands-on experience. The 15.6-inch unit weighs and incredible 2.4lbs but there are some tradeoffs. First, it doesn't live up to LGs battery claims - at all. It's like the Macbook Pro of PCs. There are a few other issues that don't make it perfect, but it does have a few things going for it for sure. Check the link below for the full review.
The Gram's case is made out of magnesium alloy, but, strangely enough, it doesn't feel like metal. There's a flimsiness to it that gives off a plastic vibe. LG likely went with incredibly thin case molds to help reduce weight, but that inevitably lead to some structural issues. For example, there are air pockets galore throughout the Gram, which leads to plenty of flex, especially on the bottom of the case.
