Time Out Dubai Staff
In 2017, the average adult now spends roughly 11 hours a day in front of some sort of screen. Whether that’s your mobile phone, tablet, television, e-reader or PC monitor. Getting around town, socialising and even your work life is almost entirely dictated by what technology you have with you.
If you’re an out-and-about sort of worker, heading to one of the many brilliant spots in Dubai serving up free wi-fi (they are almost literally everywhere) can be an ideal way of spending a day getting stuck into some serious spreadsheet action. But who wants to spend their day lugging a 3kg laptop supplied by work around town? No sir, the lighter the better – we want to almost forget we’re carrying a lappy when we arrive at a trendy, shared workspace coffee shop. Again, the lighter, the better – in fact, give us the lightest laptop on the market – such as the LG Gram.
Ever since LG first unveiled its innovative LG Gram line-up in 2014, the LG Gram is still considered the world’s lightest. In fact, it is an even more lightweight LG Gram. Despite the stronger performance, durability, and strongest battery life (long-lasting 60Wh), LG gram is still the lightest laptop. It offers true portability and a lighter weight.
The LG Gram (model 15Z970-T) enjoys a slim and compact body. The 15.6-inch display has a compact 14-inch body. A slim bezel helps the large display fit into a smaller body. This combination of slim bezel and compact body ensures high portability wherever users go. And for immersive viewing, the LG gram provides a borderless screen with narrow bezel on all four sides. It offers a much wider screen and more rewarding visual experience despite its small body frame.
The body frame combines Nano carbon, a cutting-edge material developed by LG, and easily formable magnesium, more commonly used in electric cars. The materials have been carefully chosen for their strength and resistance to external shock.
With the LG Gram’s Full HD in-plane switching (IPS) display (1920 x 1080 resolution), it provides amazing picture quality through outstanding color accuracy, visual contrast and clarity for a richer viewing experience. The laptop also provides two levels of backlighting, making it much easier for work.
When users push the power button, the keyboard’s backlight welcomes users when they prefer to work in a dark environment as the keyboard brightness easily adjusts to two levels. In addition, the advanced Reader Mode software offers customised screen conditions for reading, providing ideal conditions by minimising exposure to harmful blue light and reducing eye fatigue.
Thanks to the most up-to-date 7th Generation Intel® Core™ Processor and up to 512 GB SSD as well as DDR4 memory, the LG Gram offers the utmost performance for productivity and creativity. And Windows 10 offers new features, creating virtual desktops, snapping up to four apps on the screen and advanced pop-up notification to support multitasking during work or play.
Finally, the 141 percent larger fan with Silent Mode introduced with the Intel® DPTF (Dynamic Power Thermal Framework) is in direct control of fan spinning. It helps to reduce heat and minimise noise and is a perfect fit for a much-needed silent work environment.
If you’re more of an at-home gamer, though, you might want to have a look at the LG UltraWide 34UC79G monitor.
There have been times when gamers have wished for a wider screen every time they played a riveting PC game. However, now it is game on time with LG’s latest innovation – the LG UltraWideTM 34UC79G monitor – which promises a smooth, stutter-free experience in a sleek curved frame.
The LG 21:9 UltraWideTM 34UC79G monitor is designed to offer the ultimate gaming experience. As the world’s first 144Hz IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWideTM gaming monitor, the 34UC79G combines a blindingly fast refresh rate with advanced one millisecond Motion Blur Reduction.
The monitor boasts seamless image transitions without annoying afterimages and the IPS display delivers accurate colour expression from any angle without distortion. With features such as Black Stabiliser and Dynamic Action Sync, the 34UC79G is specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s gamers.
Black Stabiliser provides extra clear contrast, allowing viewers to detect darker objects hidden in hard-to-see areas. Dynamic Action Sync reduces input lag so that users can enjoy fast-paced gameplay without any delays. What’s more, the inclusion of AMD FreeSyncTM offers smooth gameplay without any stuttering or screen tearing.
The monitor also offers a crosshair option, which adds a fixed target to the centre of the screen to increase accuracy during FPS games and a mouse line hook to prevent drag resistance caused by its cable. With the monitor’s curved shape and immersive 21:9 aspect ratio, the 34UC79G presents a world-class gaming experience for fans of FPS, RTS or MMORPG.
34UC79G also includes a number of practical design features that fit well into a gaming station setup without hindering gaming such as tilting, adjusting the height and the mouse line hook which minimises tangled cords.
As for the ultimate gaming experience, a whole new era has been introduced with the new free sync mode that kills of the tearing and stuttering in the gamer’s experience. In addition to the Black Stabiliser, which detects objects including enemies that are hiding in dark areas, this will potentially be a winning feature for gamers.
The LG Gram and UltraWide 34UC79G are available now at all leading electronics showrooms and leading hypermarkets across the UAE.
