LG is set to reveal two new laptops which have already made an impression with award judges from CES 2019, where the new ‘Gram’ devices will be revealed for the first time.
The Gram 17 claims to be a “powerhouse portable workstation” with 8th gen Intel Core processor and up to 16GB of DDR4 memory. It comes with a 256GB SSD and an extra slot for an additional storage.
