LG introduces gram 17 and updates the rest of the gram line-up for 2019

LG introduces gram 17 and updates the rest of the gram line-up for 2019

The gram 17 is a 17-inch notebook that only weighs 1.34kg.

The new LG gram 17 was announced at CES 2019 and now it is finally here in Singapore.

It's the world's lightest 17-inch notebook, weighing an unbelievable 1.34kg. That's lighter than almost all 15-inch notebooks - except the gram 15, of course). It's even lighter than some 13-inch notebooks!

It's also fairly slim for a notebook of its size, measuring just 17.4mm thick. This enables it to have a good selection of ports, including three USB 3.1 ports, a single USB-C Thunderbolt 3 port, an HDMI port, and a microSD card slot.

The 17-inch display uses IPS technology and has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixel and a 16:10 aspect ratio.

The gram 17 will be offered in a single configuration and it will only come in dark silver.

Battery life Up to 19.5 hours
Price S$2.799

The gram 17 will be available by the end of May and is priced at S$2,799.

 

The rest of the gram family - the gram 13, 14, and 15 - gets refreshed for 2019. The design, ports, and features remain unchanged but they get the latest Intel Whiskey Lake processors and improved higher performance batteries that LG claims will extend battery life by up to 2 hours over their predecessors.

Since the new gram notebooks are largely similar to its predecessors, check out our review of the older gram notebooks to find out what we think about them.

Like the gram 17, the gram 13, 14, and 15 will only be available in dark silver. The gram 13 will only come in one configuration while a number of configurations are available for the gram 14 and 15.

The new gram 13, 14, and 15 notebooks will be available by the end of May. Configurations and prices are as follows:
