Jan 12.17 Mg Consumer News: LG’s Latest and Lightest
LG's ultra-slim laptop, the "LG Gram 14," has earned a spot in the Guinness World Records as the world's lightest commercially available notebook computer, according to the S. Korean–based electronics giant.

LG’s 2017 edition of the ultra-slim (just a half-inch thick at its widest)
14-inch laptop weighs in at less than a kilogram,
with a high performance full-metal body built from strong and light nano carbon magnesium alloy. LG said this is the first time the metal has been used in an LG-branded product.

“Guinness World Records confirmed LG’s new ultralight Gram is the lightest in the world after measuring around 70 models of 14-inch laptops being sold in 25 nations,” an LG Electronics official said.
This is the LG Gram series’ second title in the Guinness Book of World Records, following the first title earned by the predecessor 15.6-inch Gram model, (39.6 centimeters), which set the record last year.

The ultralight Gram series include a 13.3-inch (33.8 centimeters) model weighing 830 grams, a 14-inch model that weighs 860 grams and a 15.6-inch model weighing 980 grams. They each offer 12 hours of battery life.

LG said it will step up marketing efforts this year to increase sales of the "Gram" laptops and another brand with a longer battery life "All Day Gram," which features a battery life of up to 24 hours,
The laptop, introduced at the recent CES (Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, U.S.0 sells for $850.
