LG Gram Is The Company’s First Foray Into Ultrabook Scene In The US

The LG Gram comes in two sizes, 13.3-inch and 14-inch, and will be offered in two color variants (Snow White and Champagne Gold). Both of these models sport a sleek and lightweight design that only measures 12.5 mm at its thickest point and tips the scale at 2.16lbs.
