Reviews for the LG Gram 14 Z970-A.AAS7U1

The LG gram 14 is a super-light, speedy laptop with top-notch battery life. It lacks that luxury feel, but is a little less expensive than some competition. If ultimate portability is paramount, it should be on your short list.

The improvements LG made to the Gram 14Z970 over the previous model make it much more than a notebook we admire for its light weight. This new version actually weighs a tiny bit less than the original, and sports slightly trimmer dimensions, too, while adding significant features. This time around, you’re getting a touch screen, keyboard backlighting, and a more rigid build. The battery life has more than doubled to nearly 16 hours in our testing, giving the Gram 14Z970 some of the best battery runtime of any light notebook we’ve reviewed. It’s also one of the very lightest notebooks you can buy, period, at just 2.14 pounds, while sporting a larger screen than many ultralight alternatives.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
