Ruggedly Lightweight Laptops

The LG Gram 15Z980 Combines Sturdy Construction with a Low Payload

— February 7, 2018 — Tech
South Korean electronics giant LG has gone ahead and introduced a high-tech new laptop, dubbed the LG gram 15Z980, that promises military-grade durability as well as an exceptionally lightweight form factor

This particular laptop weighs in at only 2.4 pounds, but its compactness doesn't take away from its computing power, which takes advantage of an Intel 8th generation Core-i7 processor. Perhaps even more impressively, the laptop's thin construction doesn't take away from its hardiness, seeing as how it is capable of surviving being dropped and even being exposed to extreme cold and heat.

For too long now, the pursuit of lightweight laptops has required customers to compromise on solidity and ruggedness, but the LG gram 15Z980 is making that a thing of the past by giving laptop owners the ability to enjoy a featherweight computing machine that can also survive the most rugged of uses.
