LG introduced its Gram series a couple of years back, and with it, they attempted to correct the flaws they have always been suffering from.

With the Gram series, LG had attempted to strike a balance, and till now it has done a commendable job. Come CES 2018, LG has planned to expand its Gram series by introducing some interesting new laptops all powered by Intel’s 8th Generation Processors from the i5 and i7 range. Full internal specs about which exact processor in the family is the Korean giant planning to use is up for debate, there are, however, few things which are sure to sweeten the prospective deal already.

The devices will be based on Windows 10 with an SSD installed and an option for secondary SSD. LG has promised less than 10 seconds boot time in these devices.
