LG Gram 17 (2021) Review

The new LG laptop had been anticipated for quite some time. It is really a great laptop that had been advertised way too much over the top. But does it really live up to its name, or have they overhyped it? Well, there are always two sides to a coin, so you are about to figure out what are the positives and negatives of this laptop.

“The LG Gram 17 is one of the best 17-inch laptops you can buy.” This is what the claim had been made. This seems to be very true because the laptop is exceptionally light and fast when it comes to performance. The battery life of the laptop is also good, and it is truly mesmerizing to look at. However, it does feel a bit flimsy to be perfectly honest, but that is just a personal outlook. The cost also seems to be too high for the range of features that are being offered in this laptop.

LG Gram 17

We looked at the LG Gram 17 configured with a Core i71165G7, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB PCIe solid-state drive (SSD), and a 17-inch 16:10 display with a WQXGA (2,560 x 1,600) resolution. The LG Gram 17 lives up to its promise of packing a large display into a light chassis. It weighs just 2.98 pounds, which is remarkably light for such a large laptop.

In overall dimensions, the Gram 17 is 14.97 inches wide by 10.24 inches deep by 0.70 inches thick, compared to the XPS 17 at 14.74 inches by 9.76 inches by 0.77 inches. As another comparison, the HP Envy 17 is 15.71 inches by 10.2 inches by 0.76 inches and weighs 6.02 pounds (note that the Envy 17 has a 17.3-inch display). Clearly, LG accomplished something special here.
