Description

Weight and Size

It is difficult to convey a sensation in a written text, but the first time you pick up the LG Gram you get a kind of a shock, especially with the 17-inch version.


You are convinced that you have a large and heavy device in front of you, but when you lift it, the 1340 grams makes the laptop look fake.


It seems impossible to have such a light laptop actually working and even with a large capacity battery.


The weight is in fact well distributed throughout the Gram body and thanks to this it can be opened with one hand without tipping forward.


In order to have such a light laptop LG had to compromise on build quality. The materials used do not give the same feeling of strength and rigidity as aluminum laptops.


The case is entirely made of the super light alloy magnesium, but to the touch it looks very similar to plastic. This alloy is not easily scratched, but it is not very rigid, in fact the display cover, the palm rests and the keyboard flex.


Keyboard and Touchpad


Having such a large frame it was possible to insert a full size keyboard with numeric keypad on the right side.


This feature is certainly very useful if you are dealing with numbers and spreadsheets for work.


The keyboard feedback is not one of the best we have seen and is definitely not the stronger aspect of the LG Gram.


Good overall display


LG made the excellent choice to insert a display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. This makes it very convenient if you work with documents because you have more space vertically.


The 17-inch IPS LCD panel has a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. It can achieve a maximum brightness of approximately 350 nits with 98% sRGB color space coverage.


Thanks to these characteristics, you can see very well outdoors even if the screen has a glossy finish and some annoying reflections are created.


A variety of ports


LG Gram 17 is the typical example of a laptop with which you can forget to bring USB hubs and various adapters with you.


On the sides there are a total of 3 USB 3.1 ports in Type-A format, a standard size HDMI and a Micro-SD reader (a full size SD-Card reader would have been more appreciated).


The Type-C port supports Thunderbolt 3 technology, useful for connecting very fast SSD memories or external video cards.


Medium performance


It is currently available in a single configuration with i7 8565U processor, 8GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage on SSD in M.2 Sata 3 format.


These components are typical of many laptops dedicated to medium / light use.


You should not expect excellent performance in video editing or gaming, also because there it does not include a dedicated video card but (an integrated Intel GPU is used).


LG Gram is a laptop more suitable for the management of documents in portability, web browsing and mail.


Excellent battery life


The internal battery is of 72 Wh. On the 17 model there is obviously a higher consumption mainly due to the larger and more energy-consuming display, but despite this the LG Gram is able to offer excellent autonomy. With a fairly “normal” use made of web browsing, document writing and video streaming, it can easily delivers a 10 to 12 hours of use.


Low quality speakers


There are two very small stereo speakers on this laptop, which are unfortunately of poor quality.


The reproduced audio is totally absent of low frequencies and the volume, even if brought to the maximum, is not satisfactory.
