LG launches Gram SuperSlim: 15-inch OLED screen, only 10.9mm thick, 998g weight

Contemporary laptops, even those not explicitly designed for thinness, boast increasingly slender chassis. Yet, some manufacturers continue to pursue even thinner form factors, exemplified by LG’s recent introduction of the Gram SuperSlim, which achieves a remarkable thickness of merely 0.43 inches (approximately 10.9mm) and a weight of a mere 2.2 pounds (approximately 998g).

The Gram SuperSlim’s exceptional slimness is largely attributed to its incorporation of an OLED panel. The device features a 15.6-inch screen with 1080p resolution and covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. Although it lacks a high refresh rate, it compensates with a swift response time of 0.2ms. Furthermore, despite its slender frame, the laptop has undergone and passed the stringent MIL-STD 810H durability testing standards.

In terms of hardware, the LG Gram SuperSlim is equipped with the 13th generation Intel Core i7-1360P, with options for up to 32GB of LPDDR5 memory and a 2TB SSD. The built-in 60Whr battery is rated for 13 hours of video playback and has received EVO certification.

The device also boasts a comprehensive range of features, including an IR facial recognition-enabled camera, a backlit keyboard complete with a numeric keypad catering to office users, and three USB-C ports, all of which can be utilized for charging, with two supporting Thunderbolt 4.

With a starting price of $1,699, the LG Gram SuperSlim is anticipated to have a domestic release. Rumors suggest that Apple may unveil a larger M2-chip MacBook Air, possibly with a 15-inch screen, at WWDC23, positioning the two devices as direct competitors. Nevertheless, for Windows users, LG’s offering is undeniably alluring.
