Overall, the new gram notebooks are easily the lightest and most portable notebooks that we have ever tested. Some old problems still remain, but if portability is your utmost priority, the gram notebooks are pretty hard to beat. They offer a lot of portability, but with relatively very little compromises.

That said, our pick of the trio has got to be the gram 14 because it offers the best blend of performance and portability. It is just about the right size, slightly bigger than the gram 13, but not too big as to become cumbersome like the gram 15 could be. But perhaps more crucially, it benefits from having a larger 60Wh battery, giving it a whopping battery life of over 9 hours in our intensive test - or over two times as long as other comparable notebooks. If you have to constantly be on the move, this is the ideal notebook for you.

We think the LG Gram 13Z970 is tough to beat as a premium 13.3-incher. Configured with the same basic specifications as our review model, the competing Dell XPS 13 (2016) and the HP Spectre 13 are at least $100 more expensive, yet don’t offer a touch screen. You can get a touch screen with the Dell, but you'll have to pony up even more. And if you don't particularly care about tapping and swiping on your laptop, you can get the LG Gram 13Z970 without a touch screen for $899.

The LG Gram is a competent laptop that puts mobility first and foremost. Aside from maybe the Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon, there are few notebooks that successfully trim the fat like this. But, then again, the Dell, Lenovo, and HP options are nicer to use, prettier, and are built from more luxurious materials...and, in the scheme of things, they're pretty light, too.

The LG gram 13 is a featherlight midrange laptop that won't kill your budget. A competent performer, it's worth considering if you value portability and battery life above all else.

Between the screen that bounces with each touch and a housing that feels hollow, the price tag doesn’t match the build quality of the LG gram 13 despite its incredible battery life.

Thanks to some helpful extras, a slim, lightweight design and double-digit battery life, the LG Gram makes a fine everyday, all-day travelling companion.

The LG Gram is a superthin PC with a flat keyboard, dark screen and webcam that focuses on your chin. Sure, you get 10 hours of battery life, but why power such a miserable experience for 10 hours?
