LG gram 14
LG Gram 14 has a 14-inch WUXGA display with a resolution of 1920 × 1200 and IPS technology against glare. LG claims to cover 99% of the DCI-P3’s color gamut, which should provide vibrant colors ideal for any media professional. LG said the new Gram range focuses on portability, shown at its 999 grams.
It comes with a 12th generation Intel Core i5-1240P processor, coming with Intel Iris Xe Graphics, in i7 or i5 configuration. It can also be configured for the Nvidia RTX 2050 graphics processor, which was released specifically for low-end devices, suggesting there will be more power than the Intel GPU option. The Gram 14 is also Intel Evo certified, meaning it has passed a rigorous set of tests set by Intel, ensuring it’s ultra-portable design and fast boot time.
The laptop comes with 8, 16 or 32 GB of LPDDR5 memory and NVMe Gen 4 memory, in 256 GB or 512 GB. Gram 14 will be available in three colors: Snow White, Obsidian Black and Charcoal Gray.
The LG Gram 14 has a starting price of £ 1199.99 and can now be brought from the LG website.
LG gram 16
Moving on to the next laptop in the range, the Gram 16 is also Intel Evo certified, coming with a 12th generation Intel i7-1260P processor. It has the same Intel Iris Xe and Nvidia RTX 2050 graphics options as the Gram 14, and comes with either an 80Wh or 90Wh battery, the former coming with the internal GPU and the latter with the external GPU. LG claims that it can last up to 20.5 hours during video playback, although we will certainly check the battery when we send it for testing.
The 16-inch WQXGA IPS anti-glare display has a resolution of 2560 × 1600, with 99% DCI-P3 coverage and 350 nits. This laptop weighs more than its younger brother, 1.19 kg, making it a less portable option. Comes with 16GB LPDDR5 memory and up to 1TB NVMe SSD storage.
The LG Gram 16 has a starting price of £ 1349.99 and can be found on the LG website. Also available in the same three colors as Gram 14, Snow White, Obsidian Black and Charcoal Gray
LG gram 17
The largest laptop in Gram’s latest range, the Gram 17 features a 17-inch WQXGA IPS anti-glare display, with 99% DCI-P3 coverage and a resolution of 2560 × 1600. It also has a 16:10 aspect ratio, making it an ideal device for performance.
The Intel Evo laptop has a 12th generation Intel Core i7-1260P processor and an Nvidia RTX 2050 or Intel Iris Xe graphics processor. It has up to 32 GB of LPDDR5 memory and up to 1TVB NVMe SSD. LG claims that the battery can last up to 12 hours with regular use and 17.5 hours during video playback, although we will certainly verify these claims once we receive a test model.
In terms of weight, it’s no surprise that this is the heaviest laptop due to its large screen, 1.35 kg. The LG Gram 17 has a starting price of £ 1499.99 and is available for purchase from the LG website.
