And the Gram's build allows for it to fit a 14-inch screen into a chassis that would normally be expected to hold a 13-inch display, though 13-inch and 15-inch models are also available.

LG's new gram models are durable enough to use in the extreme environments, passing seven stringent USA military MIL-STD 810G durability tests for resistance to impact, pressure and temperature.

Pricing data isn't available just yet, but LG says to expect the new 2018 Gram models to be available in the U.S.in January.

LG Electronics said on Wednesday, December 13, that it plans to inject its super thin and light LG Gram laptops with eighth-generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors in 2018.

Fitted into its svelte and strong frame is a 72Wh battery, which LG claims will last for a day's use on a single charge.

Moving on, the laptops feature a backlit keyboard and precision touchpad. They passed seven US military MIL-STD 810G durability tests, meaning they should withstand "extreme environments" and the torturous actions of kids.

All the models will also feature nano carbon magnesium full metal alloy body, which is 20 percent more durable as compared to traditional magnesium products. Unlike other compact notebooks that achieve lower weight or smaller size by minimizing interior space, LG's gram series offers a second SSD drive slot for even more internal storage for those large video files. The upgraded fan is even quieter and emits less heat than before. The machines come with touchscreens, fingerprint readers, and Thunderbolt 3 ports as standard equipment.

Availability is promised to start in January in the U.S., though no price range has been mentioned yet. LG's new IPS In-cell Touch technology allows for more delicate, accurate onscreen haptic control without color shift when touching the display.
