LG Gram 17

LG’s Gram series laptops have been always the vision of light and slim notebooks. Just recently, the company announced the world’s most lightweight 17-inch laptop. The LG Gram 17 comes with a 17.3-inch screen and weighs only 1.33 kg and has a thickness of 17.8mm.

The LG Gram 17 is actually thinner than most 15-inch notebooks. It is even comparable to the weight of the Dell XPS 13. Although the 17.3-inch screen itself will occupy a large desktop area, it is undoubtedly a plus point for making it easier to carry.

The LG Gram 17 uses a silver-magnesium-aluminum body. The screen resolution is 2560×1600. The core features include the Core i7-8565U, UHD Graphics 620, 16GB DDR4-2400 memory and 512GB SATA SSD. In essence, the LG Gram 17 is still designed for office workers.

As for the other features, the Gram 17 supports an 802.11ac WiFi+ Bluetooth module, three USB 3.0 Type-A interfaces, and a USB Type-C interface for charging. It also includes HDMI, microSD card slot, headphone jack, infrared camera, and fingerprint recognition, supporting Windows Hello. Thus, almost all mainstream connectivity options are available.

In addition, this year’s Gram series has a high-capacity battery, which can reach 22.5 hours on the LG Gram 13.3 inches as well as on the 15.6 inches. As for our protagonist, the LG Gram 17 can reach 19.5 hours. Unfortunately, the LG official did not disclose the actual battery capacity of this version.

The LG Gram 17 will be sold at a price of $1,699, which looks like a rather competitive price for a laptop that weighs like a 13-inch machine, yet features a 17-inch display panel.

      If MacBook Pro with depth of 1.5cm can use 8559u LG with 1.7cm (which means there is a place for cooling the cpu) can do it , TDP is not an excuse.
