LG Details Gram 17, Gram 2 in 1 Device Ahead of CES 2019 Debut

By Radu Iorga

CES 2019 is coming in about 3 weeks or so and it should usher in some new products, including foldables. In the meantime some precocious companies like LG have already started announcing devices. For example, we have two new members of the LG Gram family: LG Gram 2 in 1 and LG Gram 17.

They have just been briefly detailed, but not fully specced yet. LG Gram 2 in 1 is a 2.5 pound convertible tablet/laptop hybrid, with a 14 inch screen, while the LG Gram 17 is an ultra light notebook that puts the ASUS ultrabooks to shame, albeit at a much higher diagonal size: 17 inches. It weighs a bit under 3 pounds.

We already covered these devices partially via a few leaks, but now we’re prepping for the real debut, as the press release has come in. Both newcomers feature slim bezel designs, 72 Wh batteries and fingerprint readers. They also have tough bodies, with MIL-STD 810G certification and backlit keyboards.

Both also feature Intel Core 8th gen processors 8 GB to 16 GB of RAM and 256 GB to 512 GB of SSD storage. LG Gram 2 in 1 relies on a Full HD IPS touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass protection and does Wacom input via a bundled pen. Connectivity includes a USB Type-C 3.1 port, two USB 3.1 ports, a microSD card slot and a HDMI port.

LG Gram 17 comes in dark silver or white and measures 0.7 inches in thickness. It has a Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C port, 3 USB 3.1 ports, a HDMI and microSD. There’s also a 2560 x 1600 pixel IPS display with a 965 sRGB color gamut. In spite of being so light, this device is actually big enough to also offer you a numeric keypad on the right side of the keyboard.

HP Spectre x360 Gets Two New 13 inch and 15.6 Inch versions, With Premium Specs

By Radu Iorga

HP is on fire, so fresh after unveiling an EliteBook convertible, they also debuted new models within the Spectre x360 convertible devices. The lineup is getting a new design and boosted performance, in two versions: 13 inch and 15.6 inches.

HP highlights the longer battery life and improved performance compared to the predecessors, plus promises 4G LTE with Gigabit level speeds. The design not offers an elegant “dark ash silver with copper luxe accents”. Or you can go with blue with pale brass accents. The laptops will be available next month starting at $1150 for the 13 inch HP Spectre. That one weighs 2.9 pounds and measures 0.6 inches in thickness, plus it packs a 1080p touchscreen display.

It also has two Thunderbolt 3 ports, two Type-C ports, one regular USB Type-A, audio jack and microSD. A Core i7 8th gen CPU is inside, as well as 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of PCIe storage. Quad speakers are included as well, plus a backlit keyboard, fingerprint scanner and Windows Hello IR camera. HP promises 22 hours of battery life here courtesy of a 61 Wh.

 

The 15 inch version is the HP Spectre x360 priced at $1390 and it comes with a numeric pad right next to the keyboard. Discrete graphics are here, which is something you won’t find on the smaller unit. HP Spectre x360 15 comes with up to a hexa core Intel Coffee Lake-H CPU, GeForce GTX 1050Ti Max-Q Graphics and 16 GB of RAM, plus 512 GB of storage. That’s best case scenario, since the starting price gives you a Core i7 8th gen, MX150 graphics and 8 GB of RAM. 256 GB of storage only.

On the connectivity front we’ve got HDMI 2.0, USB Type-A, USB Type-C, Thunderbolt 3 and audio jack, as well as microSD. And of course, the format is versatile between the touchscreen display, rotating 360 degree format and Windows Ink support. This can easily be used as a tablet.

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: HP Spectre Folio Unboxing and First Impressions: The Leather Laptop

By Tim

The HP Spectre Folio is a different sort of 2 in 1 device that can be used in multiple modes. It has its upsides and downsides of course, but overall is a great smaller notebook/tablet (sort of) device.

It does come with a stylus and it does have a great battery and it is a fanless device although after looking closely at the video, I have no clue how this thing is staying cool! I will have to assume HP is using some sort of black magic and hopefully Andrew over at AMDTech will be able to find out how when he does his full review.

It is available with either Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors and as tested in the video below is using a Core i7 with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of storage via NVIE SSD M2.

The price is quite steep, but this might be just what you are looking for so I thought I would share this one.

As usual, make sure to check out Andrew’s channel on YouTube for great reviews.

Now let us proceed to that video!
