LG made a 15-inch gold MacBook

New, 107 comments

Apple's new MacBook is slim, light, and especially fetching in gold, but its small screen may not be big enough for everyone. If you're one of those people looking for a larger screen, but still want a slim and light computer, LG may have just what you're looking for. Its new Gram 15 laptop has a 15-inch display, is only 0.6 inches thick, and weighs a scant 2.16 lbs. That's light enough for LG to make the claim that the Gram 15 is the lightest laptop in its size class. Oh and it comes in a strikingly familiar gold finish.

Of course, it's not quite the same as a bigger MacBook: the Gram's IPS display is 1080p resolution and it runs Windows 10 instead of OS X. It comes with a USB Type-C port, but also has HDMI, USB 3.0, microUSB, and microSD slots. The laptop is powered by Intel's sixth-generation Core i5 or i7 processors and LG claims battery life of "up to 7 hours."

We weren't hugely impressed with the 14-inch version of the Gram, and found it made too many compromises in order to attain its ultra light weight. LG hasn't said how much the Gram 15 will cost or when it will be available, but we'll be sure to put it to the test when it is.
