Source: Pocket Lint English
The LG Gram 14 is one of the best laptops out there if your two priorities are battery life and a having something you can carry around all day. It's a bit vanilla by design, but that battery life is the key sell here.

The LG Gram 14Z980 is exactly as the name implies: super lightweight, making it ideal for those working on the go. But priced at £1,200, that portability suddenly hangs heavy.

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.

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 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).

77.5%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
