LG Gram 17

 

LG's Gram 17, astonishingly light for a 17-inch laptop, delivers excellent battery life and a glorious screen. But the relatively high price, the plain design, and some quibbles with the keyboard and touchpad keep it from stardom.

Astoundingly light for a 17-inch laptop. As compact a footprint as possible for the screen size. Outstanding battery life. Excellent display. Comprehensive port selection.

Boring, plain design. Feels flimsier than the alloy body suggests. Uncomfortable touchpad. No touch-screen option. Relatively pricey.

Bottom Line: LG's Gram 17, astonishingly light for a 17-inch laptop, delivers excellent battery life and a glorious screen. But the relatively high price, the plain design, and some quibbles with the keyboard and touchpad keep it from stardom.

LG Gram 17 review: as ultra-portable as 17 inches can get

 

A giant display in a laptop that weighs just 2.95 pounds.

Beautiful 17-inch screen in a laptop so light it feels fake ; Excellent performance for everyday PC usage ; Nice selection of ports including Thunderbolt 3

There’s a lot of flex ; No dedicated GPU despite high price ; Display isn’t a touchscreen ; Truly horrendous speakers

The Gram 17 is wholly unique on the laptop market, but that also means it’s for a very specific person. A giant screen — even if it can’t be used for super intensive PC tasks — in this unbelievably light package will justify the $1,700 price for some....

LG Gram 17 review: A big-screen laptop that's incredibly lightweight

 

The LG Gram 17 has a huge screen but is shockingly light.

17-inch screen in a shockingly light design ; Monster battery life ; Runs cool, quiet, and comfortable, even under heavy loads

Squishy keyboard with some layout issues ; Awful speaker audio ; Drab design

Although LG offers lots of laptops in which portability is the primary selling point, the LG Gram 17 is the ultimate manifestation. There’s nothing else like it on the market, and it’s mostly a joy to use despite a middling keyboard and awful speakers....

LG Gram 17Z990 (i7-8565U. WQXGA) Laptop Review

 

It\'s exciting to have a 17-inch laptop that\'s as light as a 14-inch Ultrabook. This comes with some disadvantages, however, including a flimsy lid and the lack of any discrete GPU options.

performance not throttled when running on batteries;2x M.2 2280 NVMe slots, 1x DDR4 SODIMM slot;high contrast ratio with accurate colors;fingerprint-enabled Power button;crisp, high quality WQXGA display;thin and very lightweight;USB Type-C...

below average CPU performance; short-lived Turbo Boost;microSD reader only; no full-size SD reader;below average audio quality; weak bass;no Gorilla Glass overlay; very flexible lid;no touchscreen or 4K UHD options;soft keyboard keys and clickpad;no...

LG Gram 17 (2020) Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The LG Gram 17 was the best 17-inch laptop of 2019 and it's just got even better thanks to a processor upgrade, larger battery and an upgraded display

Unbelievably lightweight and ultraportable design;Superb 17-inch display ;Great battery life;Improved processor performance

Gaming performance with Ice Lake is disappointing ;Bland design compared to rivals;Annoyingly reflective screen

LG Gram 17 review

 

One of very few thin and light laptops that gets the bigger picture

Giant screen for an ultraportable ; All-day working battery life ; Not many direct rivals

Awkward keyboard layout ; Lacking in power for the price ; Who's it for?

Anyone desperate for a big-screen laptop they can carry anywhere will be well served by the LG Gram, but with performance on par with most 13in machines, it's a niche prospect

LG Gram 17 review: A super 17-inch laptop for on-the-go work

 

It's rare to find a lightweight 17in laptop that's suited to day-to-day working. LG, however, has bucked the trend with this super big-screen offering

Very light ; All-day battery ; Good keyboard and trackpad ; Great screen

Older-gen CPU ; Battery life is a way off the claim ; Doesn’t feel as sturdy and some

The only 17-incher we've used that seems made, or even well suited, to life on the road. It's powerful enough, has solid battery life, and both its connections and keyboard feel made for real work. The CPU is out of date upon arrival, though, but we're...

LG's huge gram 17 laptop might look the same but comes with various internal upgrades. Whether it costs too much is another matter
