17.8mm

We consider a thinner chassis better because it makes the product more compact and portable. Thinness is a feature highlighted by many manufacturers of mobile devices, but it is essential for a wide range of products.
4.warranty period

1

When covered under the manufacturer’s warranty it is possible to get a replacement in the case of a malfunction.
5.width

358.1mm

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
6.Uses a fanless design
LG Gram 15 (2018) 15.6" Intel Core i7-8550U 1.8GHz / 16GB / 1TB SSD
By using power-efficient components that don't produce large amounts of heat, it's possible to create a device with no cooling fans. This results in a much quieter (or even silent) operation.

Display

1.resolution

1920 x 1080px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

141ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.screen size

15.6"

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
4.has a touch screen

6.LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixels
LG Gram 15 (2018) 15.6" Intel Core i7-8550U 1.8GHz / 16GB / 1TB SSD
The device has an LCD display with 3 subpixels per pixel, resulting in sharp and crisp images. Pixels in some displays (like AMOLED) share one subpixel to preserve space. This can result in a less crisp, slightly blurred image.

Performance

1.RAM

16GB

Random-access memory (RAM) is a form of volatile memory used to store working data and machine code currently in use. It is a quick-access, temporary virtual storage that can be read and changed in any order, thus enabling fast data processing.
2.RAM speed

2400MHz

It can support faster memory, which will give quicker system performance.
3.Uses flash storage
LG Gram 15 (2018) 15.6" Intel Core i7-8550U 1.8GHz / 16GB / 1TB SSD

4.CPU speed

4 x 1.8GHz (Intel Core i7-8550U)

The CPU speed indicates how many processing cycles per second can be executed by a CPU, considering all of its cores (processing units). It is calculated by adding the clock rates of each core or, in the case of multi-core processors employing different microarchitectures, of each group of cores.
5.internal storage

1000GB

The internal storage, also called read-only memory (ROM), refers to the built-in storage space available in a device for system data, apps, and user-generated data. With a large amount of internal storage, you can save more files and apps on your device.
6.maximum memory size

16GB

The maximum amount of memory (RAM) supported.
