After some teasing and presentations, LG’s Gram 2 in 1 device became available today in USA and South Korea. The machine is supposed to be a Lenovo Yoga contender and comes with a rotating screen. It’ll be priced at around $1600 and that’s just the starting price.
The product has already reached Best Buy over the past week, apparently. It combines a 14 inch Full HD IPS display with a laptop’s body. It can rotate up to 360 degrees and it offers touch functionality. The laptop also makes use of a Wacom stylus, letting users do drawing, write by hand and tweak gradients and directions.
4096 levels of pressure are available here. LG Electronics may have used a 14 inch diagonal here, but they’ve implemented it on a format suited for a 13.3 incher and the whole thing weighs 1145 grams. The device has an Intel 8th gen CPU, a slot for SSD storage, the latest DDR4 RAM and a fingerprint scanner within the Power button.
LG Gram 2 in 1 also has the appeal of the “military specifications”, which make it more rugged than the norm. It can take shocks, dust, high temperature, vibration, salt and more. The device comes in a config that involves the Intel Whiskey Lake Core i7 CPU, 512 GB of SSD and 16 GB of RAM. It’s also pretty light at 1.15 kilograms, compared to the MacBook Air 2018 even.
Just a few days after HP launched some Intel-based Chromebooks, they’re at it again, this time with some AMD-based models. The company introduced two educational products: HP Chromebook 14A G5 EE, coming in April and HP Chromebook 11A G6 EE, coming in February.
The 11A is supposed to be one of the first 11.6 inch Chromebooks with an AMD processor. Inside the Chromebook 11A G6 EE we find an AMD A4-9120C processor, as well as 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of eMMC 5.0 storage. It’ll come in touch and non touch versions, both of them with a 220 nit display panel and a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution.
There are two USB Type-C ports here, plus two USB 2.0 Type-A ports as well, plus an audio jack. HP included a HD webcam, a spill resilient keyboard and a 47.37 Wh battery. The product weighs about 2.8 pounds and measures 0.7 inches in thickness.
HP Chromebook 14A G5 comes in two flavors: Full HD IP or a 1366 x 768 pixel version. Optionally it has a backlit keyboard. Sadly, this one doesn’t have detailed specs, but it probably sports one of the new low power AMD CPUs. HP also unveiled an AMD Chromebook at CES 2019, a model priced at $269 and packing a 14 inch screen.
So I did a bit more looking late this afternoon on Gearbest and there is a super good deal on a 14 inch laptop for under $200!
The Jumper EZBook laptop is a mere $178 currently! That is a pretty good price considering the specs, which include the 14 inch display at 1920 x 1080 and a quad core Intel Cherry Trail Processor with 64gb of onboard storage and a USB 3 and USB 2 port.
The 10000mAh battery is also a huge bonus! So check it out today as it is on a flash sale at gearbest for only the next 8 days, and 218 units are left as of this writing.
Below is a video directly from the Gearbest folks…
Keep in mind that this is not a bleeding edge laptop, but probably adequate for use as a web or minor office chores or even college student device. See the video below for a review.
