It’s hard to call any of this a design flaw, because it’s clear the designers had a clear objective in mind. They wanted to build the lightest 15 inch laptop on the market. They achieved that — but the question is whether that weight loss is worth the tradeoffs.
LG's New Laptop Just Might Be The Lightest 15 inch Laptop Ever Made
Apple isn't the only company that knows how to build an unbelievably thin and light laptop.
The LG Gram 15, announced at CES on Tuesday, is possibly the world's lightest 15-inch laptop. At 2.16 pounds, it's lighter than Apple's new MacBook Pro — the 15" version of which weighs 4.4 pounds.
The Gram 15 is also thin — 0.6 inches, to be exact — and extremely durable, thanks to its magnesium alloy construction.
