LG has announced that the new gram laptops for 2022, with 12th generation Intel processors, are now available in the United States. New laptops available today include LG gram 14, 15, 16 and 17, along with 14 gram 2-in-1 and 16 gram 2 2-in-1. The new LG gram + View, an external portable monitor designed to pair with new laptops, is also available today.
The new laptops are powered by 12th generation Intel processors, especially the P series, with a TDP of 28 W. You can go up to an Intel Core i7-1260P, which has 12 cores and 16 wires, plus graphics integrated Iris Xe. Oddly enough, LG doesn’t seem to be able to get a discreet GPU inside these laptops in the United States, so you won’t be able to use them as a gaming platform. The new models come with up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM at 5200 MHz and have two SSD slots for storage.
LG gram 14, 16 and 17 all have 16:10 displays, including their 2-in-1 versions. At 17, 16 and 16 grams 2-in-1, they have a resolution of WQXGA or 2560 x 1600. Gram 14 and gram 14 2-in-1 come in WUXGA resolution (1920 x 1200). The LG gram 15 still has a 15.6-inch 16: 9 screen and is a Full HD panel (1920 x 1080). This is the most unchanged laptop in the group: the chassis is still the same one I’ve seen for some time, and the company is just refreshing it with new interior elements. 2-in-1 models also support touch and pen input using the included LG Stylus Pen.
All laptops come with a new Full HD webcam with an IR sensor for Windows Hello facial recognition. Previous models were based on a fingerprint reader and had 720p webcams, so this is an important upgrade.
In terms of software, all laptops come with Glance from Mirametrix, an application that locks your computer when you walk away from it or dims your screen when someone looks over your shoulder. It can also move your mouse over the monitor you’re looking at, so you can move more easily between monitors.
As mentioned above, LG also released gram + View today, a 16-inch portable monitor, which is the perfect companion for the 16 gram laptop. It has the same size and has the same aspect ratio of 16:10, plus the same resolution, giving you the ideal setup for two monitors on the go.
LG gram 14 starts at $ 1,249, gram 15 starts at $ 1,199, gram 16 starts at $ 1,399, and gram 17 starts at $ 1,599. If you want one of the convertibles, the LG gram 14 2-in-1 starts at $ 1,299 million, and the 16 gram 2 2-in-1 starts at $ 1,499. Meanwhile, the LG gram + View costs $ 349.99.
