81.9% LG Gram 13Z980-A (i5-8250U) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
Under a kilogram. The LG Gram 13 lives up to its name by being one of the lightest 13.3-inch Ultrabooks currently available. It's not without some sacrifices, however, as its barebone set of hardware features and fragile lid stand out as key disadvantages.

In closing, much like its predecessors, the new gram notebooks, with its light weight and long battery lives, are ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time running around, or anyone who just wants an ultra-light notebook.

LG Gram hands-on review

From first impressions, it seems the LG Gram would make the perfect laptop for a student. It’s ultra-light, the 14in version is big and comfy enough to work on all day. And it should last all day too.

80% LG Gram 13 Review
Source: Techspot English
We really wish LG offered an out of the box Core i7 configuration with 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD; that’s often the sweet spot for high-end laptop hardware, but you can only achieve this through your own upgrades. With that said, the options LG does provide are still decent, and there’s enough value to make it a great buy, especially for those that crave portability.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620. Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
8250U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
13.3":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Mainly, bigger-sized tablets and convertibles weigh as much.


LG:

LG Electronics Inc. is a subsidiary of the LG Group. LG is the world's second-biggest maker of televisions and third-biggest maker of mobile phones. With its headquarters in South Korea, the company has 75 subsidiaries worldwide that design and manufacture televisions, home appliances, and telecommunications devices. LG is an international laptop manufacturer of medium size with few reviews.

After a few years, LG largely withdrew from the laptop sector. In the smartphone segment, LG is a medium-sized manufacturer (not among the Top 5 in 2015 and 2016).


80.48%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
