The LG Gram is the world’s lightest 17-inch laptop. The way it combines such large display with a weight lighter than laptops of smaller screen size is amazing. This shouldn’t make you think that the LG Gram is all about screen size, there is a lot of power packed behind the large screen and light weight. You can see it in person in stores like Costco that sell laptops and other electronic devices.
At 2.95 pounds, the LG Gram has a chassis big enough to accommodate the most powerful internal components. The level of graphical display it offers content creators is amazing and it allows a lengthy work time due to a strong battery life. Gamers are not left out from enjoying the wide display the LG Gram offers, as you enjoy a great experience in that regard.
Although the design might feel boring to some and the touchpad can be quite uncomfortable, but this doesn’t affect the lovely experience if offers. Also, it is little bit on the high side in terms of price and it doesn’t offer the touch screen option if you like that option.
Let’s take a deeper look into its specifications so you can get a more comprehensive picture on what if offers.
The LG Gram 17 is not the most pleasant looking laptop in terms of design. It offers a plain look, as it comes in a dark-gray slab from a magnesium-carbon alloy. It doesn’t spot features and doesn’t put enough effort into sleekness. Its 2.95 pounds weight isn’t obvious at first glance when you realize its 0.7-inch thick. It is amazingly light for its 17-inch and weighs in less than most ultraportable laptops.
The moment you pick up the Gram 17, you are bound to be awed at how light it is, giving its screen size and thickness. LG reduced the screen-to-body ratio in order to achieve this light weight. It comes in a 15 by 10.5 inches measurement, which is like most 15-inch laptops.
One of the biggest reasons to buy the LG Gram 17 is the display level it offers. It comes with an excellent display which is what it has over most lightweight LG laptops. It offers a 4K resolution with 2560 by 1600 pixels and a WQXGA screen, with a 16: 10 aspect ratio. The brightness level it offers is a lot more than you will need at its maximum level, while it also offers great colors.
It doesn’t offer touch screen input, which means you have to settle for input via the keyboard and scrolling via the touchpad and they are not the best.
In terms of performance, the LG Gram offers great battery life and a good performance on the balance. Its processor is the eighth-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, and it works quite well as it has no problem with switching between the usual daily tasks.
It comes with an Intel UHD 620 GPU and that is quite enough for occasional gamers and light video editing. The battery life is quite great, as it offers close to 15 hours when it was ran through the battery test.
The LG Gram 17 is great laptop for travel that require a large screen as its lightweight is great. LG did really good in combining display without having to make carrying it unbearable.
