LG has announced the launch of LG gram in the UAE. It brings the world’s lightest laptop here through a partnership with Sharaf DG.
Available in white and gold, the laptop comes in 14 and 15.6-inches, and will initially be available across all Sharaf DG stores in the country.
The two models in the LG gram series are the 14Z960 (14 inches) at Dh3,999 and the 15Z960 (15.6 inches) at Dh4,399.
The name of the device is a nod to the devices’ weight, which is under a kilogram — less than the MacBook Air.
The gram has a carbon magnesium body that measures just half an inch in thickness.
“LG has a long history of developing innovative consumer electronics products and has applied that expertise with the LG gram. Through our constant drive to innovate, LG was able to implement our mastery of ultra-lightweight technology to become the first to break the one kilogram barrier for a 14-inch laptop. We are confident consumers in the UAE will respond well to this product that combines powerful performance with a lightweight design.”
