LG reveals new high-end monitors and laptop

LG has revealed four top-end monitors and an ultra-compact  laptop ahead of their full CES 2016 showing.

The annual Consumer Electronics Show takes place in Las Vegas from January 6 to January 9, and as always, LG has provided a sneak peek at some of the items it will have on display.

LG will be showing off four high-end PC monitors at the show, the first two of which seem particularly well-suited to gamers.

One of these will be the LG 34UC88, a 34-inch, 21:9 curved monitor with a QHD resolution and Thunderbolt 2 connectivity. Elsewhere, the LG 27UD68 is a 27-inch monitor with an Ultra HD, or 4K, resolution.

Both of these monitors will feature AMD’s advanced FreeSync technology, which adjusts the refresh rate of the monitor to match your PC’s graphics card. The result is smoother gameplay and fewer visual artefacts.

On a more professional front, LG has the 34UM88. This is a 34-inch 21:9 UltraWide monitor aimed at photographers and graphic designers who demand precise image reproduction.

The LG 27UD88 is a 27-inch 4K monitor with one particular stand-out feature – USB-C port technology. This will enable users an easy way to connect their laptops to an external monitor while also using it as a power source, using just a single cable.

Perhaps a little unusually, LG has also lumped a new high-end laptop in which this monitor splurge. The LG gram 15 packs a 15.6-inch screen into a form factor that LG says is “barely larger than a conventional 14-inch laptop.” LG also claims its the lightest 15-inch laptop in the world at 980 grams.

Sixth generation Intel Core processors should ensure it’s not light on performance, however.

Expect to get the full lowdown on these new items at the beginning of the New Year.
