Reviews for the LG Gram 14 Z970-A.AAS7U1

LG gram review: The lightest family of notebooks you can buy
Source: Hardware Zone English
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.

LG gram review: The lightest family of notebooks you can buy
Source: Hardware Zone English
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.

Hands-on with the new ultralight LG gram notebooks
Source: Hardware Zone English
LG marked its return to the notebook scene last year with the incredible gram 15 and gram 14 notebooks. Of the two, the gram 15 is arguably more impressive. Because even though it has a 15-inch display, it weighed a scarcely believable 980g, which, believe it or not, makes it even lighter than an 11-inch MacBook Air. This made it extremely popular amongst users who wanted the larger display of a 15-inch notebook but without the associated heft.

80% LG gram 14 (2017)
Source: PC Mag English
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.

80% LG Gram 14 (2017) Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
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 HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series). 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.
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.

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.

1.71 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.


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%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
