  • Several new LG gram laptops are available starting today.

The majority of LG's refreshed lineup of gram laptops is now available for order. LG announced five new gram laptops at CES 2021, including the gram 17, gram 16, gram 14, gram 2-in-1 16, and gram 2-in-1 14. All of the traditional clamshell gram laptops are available starting today. You'll have to wait until March for the 2-in-1 versions.

The laptops stick with the gram's theme of being thin and light. The gram 14 comes in at just 999g (2.2 lbs), which explains its name. Even the heaviest new gram, the gram 16 2-in-1, only weighs 1,480g (3.26 lbs).

The most affordable new gram laptop is the gram 14, which starts at $1,000. If you get the largest gram available, the gram 17, and opt for an Intel Core i7 processor and 2TB of storage, it'll cost you $2,000.

  • Excited for their convertible model releases. Low weight really helps making 360° hinge 2-1's less clumsy as tablets.
