Reviews for the LG Gram 17 2023 17Z90R

2023 LG Gram 17 Review (NVIDIA RTX)
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
For 2023, LG updates the insanely slim and light magnesium alloy gram 17 Pro laptop (model 17Z90R) with NVIDIA RTX 3050 graphics and an Intel 13th gen Core i7 processor. At 3.2 lbs. / 1.45kg, the gram 17 Pro is among the lightest laptops on the market with dedicated graphics. It has a 17” QHD+ VRR 144Hz matte wide gamut display, plenty of ports including Thunderbolt 4 and a 90Whr battery for long runtimes. It might lack the horsepower of the Dell XPS 17 or 16” MacBook Pro, but if you need a lightweight carry and long battery life more than max performance, it’s worth a look.

80% LG Gram 17 Pro (2023) review: Serious power, seriously light
Source: Tom's Guide English
The LG Gram 17 Pro (2023) is a powerful ultraportable with strong battery life that remains deceptively light despite the inclusion of a beefy discrete Nvidia GPU. The full keyboard and large display make working and browsing the web feel comfy, and when you want to unwind the screen and speakers make movies look and sound great. The power of a mid-tier 13th Gen Intel CPU and GeForce RTX 3050 GPU allow you to play a wide variety of games on this laptop too, though you'll need to dial down the settings if you want to achieve the high framerates that 144Hz display can deliver. Still, there are some drawbacks that keep me from recommending this laptop without reservation. The power cable is way too short, for one, which feels especially frustrating when the rest of the laptop's design is so good. The LG Gram 17 Pro's performance is also a little underwhelming compared to competitors of similar size and price. The configuration of Dell XPS 17 we tested last year, for example, can be yours right now for roughly the same price ($1,999) and it offers better performance (thanks to a more powerful CPU and more RAM) than the Gram 17 Pro. However, Dell's laptop has a lower-resolution screen, a lower-quality webcam and weighs nearly 2 pounds more. If you like macOS, Apple's 16-inch MacBook Pro is also a compelling alternative. While it costs more ($2,499 to start) and is heavier than the LG Gram 17 Pro, with a smaller screen, Apple's 16-inch Pro is much speedier, offers better battery life and better speakers. However, you won't be able to play as many PC games on the MacBook Pro unless you want to deal with the hassle of getting Windows-only games running in macOS. But for my money, you can't do better than the LG Gram 17 Pro if you want a discreet 17-inch Windows ultraportable that can do a bit of everything (work, gaming, content creation) you can take pretty much anywhere.

50% LG Gram 17 Pro (2023) review: a good idea, poorly executed
Source: Digital Trends English
It’s hard to recommend a laptop with so many technical glitches. I trust that LG will get them fixed, but in the meantime, I’d be a bit wary. Regarding its performance, battery life, and display, the Gram 17 Pro is a solid laptop. It would be a great choice for multitaskers and light creators. Its keyboard is uncomfortable, though, and its touchpad is too small. And its chassis doesn’t have the same dense rigidity that I’ve come to expect from the best laptops. Given its premium price and its unreliable performance, this is one 17-inch laptop that you probably want to pass up for now.

LG Gram 17 (2023) Review
Source: USA Today English
The LG Gram 17 is proof that huge laptops serve a purpose. It won't fit in cramped spaces, but the large display is absolutely wonderful to use on a desk, conference room, or coffee shop. It's bright, easy to read, and provides tons of space for viewing multiple applications at once. LG also delivers on value. The Gram 17’s base MSRP of $2,000 isn’t inexpensive, but it snags you an impressive Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB solid state drive, and Nvidia RTX 3050 graphics. Comparatively, the MacBook Pro 16 M2 starts at $2,500 and the Dell XPS 17 starts at $2,949, yet both ship with a smaller 512GB solid state drive. However, the Gram 17 would be better served by additional USB-A and USB-C connectivity, and a full-sized SDXC card reader. It looks and feels mundane, as well. Thankfully, LG’s pricing makes these flaws easy to forgive. The Gram 17 delivers a combination of screen size, pricing, and performance that’s difficult for competitors to match. It’s a practical choice for people who want a big-screen performance laptop without an equally massive price tag.

17.00":

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.
