Move over Amazon, Flipkart, and Snapdeal…Paytm is the new synonym for exclusivity. The new device in the tech market that is creating quite the buzz is the Korean giant, LG’s, Gram 14 series of ultra-thin laptops.

Unveiled to the world at the Consumer Electronics Show held earlier this year, the Gram 14 is so light that even your gram can hold the Gram! Weighing just 980 grams, it boasts of being the most light-weight in its category.

Display & Body

The 14” screen has an impressive full HD display of 1920x1080p. With its slim bezels, you know why the laptop weighs so less, and looks so elegant. The magnesium alloy body of the Gram 14 adds to the aesthetic appeal of the laptop, as does the Gold/ Black colour that it comes in. Oh, and it also works to add to Gram’s durability, making it a good option for a little rough and tough use.

Performance

This is one beautiful device with equally beautiful specs. It is powered by the robust and every other laptop’s envy- Intel’s 6th Generation i5 processor which clocks a speed of 2.3GHz and a Turbo speed of up to 2.80GHz. Here, you have to choose between the 4GB RAM/128GB (black) variant and the 8GB/256GB (gold) one. Originally priced at ₹94, 990, Paytm offers it for a discounted price of ₹84, 449 with an additional cash back of ₹8, 000 if you use their given promo code. If you are looking at the 4GB variant, the price tag is a lighter ₹79,990. With the Intel HD Graphics 520, you can effortlessly see your zombies die without constant glitches or lags.

Coming to the OS, Gram 14 comes with Windows 10 out-of-the-box, so you can get started on all your presentations and other work as soon as you get the laptop booted. Which brings us to its next highlight-it takes the laptop only 1 Mississippi (if you know what I mean!) to boot. So no waiting time there, people!

The Audio Experience

Gram 14 gives you a sound output with less noise and distortion so that when you plug in your headphones, you know that Adele is Adele and not some random singer with a prickly voice.

Reader Mode

If not your Kindle, tab, or Smartphone, then your laptop surely doubles up as your reading medium. For all you bibliophiles who swear by their reading time, Gram 14 comes with a Reader Mode that adjusts the screen light and contrast to reduce eye fatigue. Very considerate Gram is, just like a gram.

The LG Gram 14 series incorporates an HD webcam and a battery that LG says will last for about 7.5 hours! Connectivity options are plenty; you have Wi-Fi, an Ethernet port, Bluetooth, two U.S.B 3.0 ports, one U.S.B 2.0 port, and one for HDMI.

Yes, LG is not that big a name when it comes to the laptop industry with brands like Dell, Apple, Lenovo, Samsung, Acer, etc. taking away the major market shares, but perhaps the Gram 14 series will be the comeback vehicle for LG in India.
