LG unveils next year's monitors and laptops ahead of CES

Get ready for new Ultrawide 21:9 monitors, 4K screens and a lightweight laptop.

LG announced three classes of products on Tuesday that it will be showcasing at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. First up, LG announced a trio of new models for its 21:9 UltraWide line of monitors. They'll all sport 3440- x 1440-pixel screens and ThunderBolt 2 connectors. The The UC98 and UC88 models both feature curved screens, while the UM88 will not.

In addition to LG's wideload screens, it will also debut a pair of 4K monitors: the UD88 and UD68 series, both of which will include USB-C connections. Finally, LG plans to roll out the Gram at CES. It's a 15.6-inch laptop running Windows 10 on a 6th Gen Intel chipset that somehow weighs just slightly over 2 pounds. For comparison, the 13 inch MBA that I'm typing this post on weighs just under 3 pounds.
