LG's stunning lightweight ultrabooks are launching in the US from $899

The LG Gram will shortly be available for purchase from the Microsoft Store in the US. This range of Windows 10 lightweight ultrabooks from LG will be marketed as Microsoft Signature Edition to those who are seeking a portable, yet capable PC with a stunning display.

LG is positioning the Gram family of laptops against the 13-inch MacBook Air, though the company is pinning hopes on its superb 1080p IPS display. An added bonus (and what gives the laptop its name) is the weight, which measures in at just under a kilogram (980 grams), making the LG Gram lighter than Apple's entry-level laptop at 1.08kg. But there's no keyboard backlight however, which is unfortunate.

Then there's the price. From $899, you'll be able to pick up the 13-inch Gram, powered by an Intel Core i5 processor, sporting 128GB of internal storage and 8GB of RAM. The laptops from LG will be available both online and in-store at Microsoft outlets, as well as Amazon, which will also stock the LG Gram at competitive price points.
