Reviews for the LG Gram 17 Z90N-R.AAS9U1

LG Gram 17 review: Big yet brilliantly portable
Source: Pocket Lint English
This is the only 17-inch laptop made for those after a big-screen portable rather than a huge, powerful workstation. It's ultra-light for the size, which makes it mighty impressive.

80% LG Gram 17 (2020) review: huge screen, thin chassis, impressive laptop
Source: T3 English
LG has worked wonders in getting such a big screen inside a laptop so thin, and if you add in a stylish, understated design and a decent Intel CPU, then this is a laptop well worth checking out for all kinds of uses – even with a relatively high price and built-in graphics.

Once again, the LG gram 17 is quite expensive and not perfect but if you’re looking for an extremely portable laptop with a large screen, speedy performance and long battery life then is an excellent choice. In the 17in market, it's a fantastic choice.

81% LG Gram 17 (2020) review: A lightweight productivity machine with a big screen
Source: CNet English
If you've been working from home on a 13-, 14- or 15-inch laptop and you're finding your productivity suffering by working on its small screen, you may be craving moving to something larger. An external display might make the most sense assuming you've got the room for one. But, if you need something more mobile and lap-friendly, the LG Gram 17 might do the trick because, despite its tall 17-inch display, it's incredibly light with a long battery life making it a standout in the category.

Once again, the LG gram 17 is very expensive and not perfect but if you’re looking for an extremely portable laptop with a large screen, speedy performance and long battery life then is an excellent choice. In the 17in market, there's really no beating it. Otherwise, there are plenty of cheaper 13-15in laptops available with similar or better performance. Note that our score is based on the US price of $1,849.

80% LG Gram 2020 Review: Superb lightweight ventures into Canada
Source: Mobile Syrup English
However, by and large the laptop's greatest flaw is its build quality. The flexing in the keyboard and screen, as well as the gaps when pressing the touchpad, leave me concerned about how well this laptop will hold up over a longer period of time.

The LG Gram 17 (2020) is the best 17-inch laptop you can buy for basic tasks such as web browsing and video streaming, thanks to its astonishingly light design. It may not offer a huge leap forward from the previous iteration, but the extended battery life and faster processor are welcome improvements that strengthen its hold as the lightweight champion.

Series:

LG introduced its Gram laptop to the world four years ago with the intention to produce notebook as featherweight as possible. With the same noble intention of making it as light as possible, LG has brought forward its 2020 Gram lineup into the market. The extremely light weight of the laptops is due to the fact that the laptops are built with a specially designed, innovative magnesium-alloy frame. Apart from the light weight, this new series has also retained its Gram’s hallmark feature by retaining the svelte form factor. However, this new 2020 series has gone through quite a number of upgrades to cater for the high price tag.

The new Gram series has been introduced with four models which ranges from 14 inches to 17 inches display size along with a 2-in-1 system embedded within it. This opens the possibility for users to choose the best model which caters the individual’s preference and personal interest. As far as the battery capability is concerned, it should be noted that the 14 inches model has retained a similar battery size as the Gram series predecessor which is 72Watt-hour battery. While the 15 inches and 17 inches model cater an 80Watt-hour battery, the 14 inches model is believed to be able to operate at its best with the smaller battery due to its smaller display size. As for the 80 Watt-hour battery, LG claimed that it can provide 17 to 18.5 hours battery life after full charging. However, the real experience with the battery longevity still needs some testing in real-time with real user experience.

Despite the varying battery sizes, all four models of the Gram 2020 laptops have been enhanced with a ‘Mega Cooling’ thermal management system. This is known to be able to improvise the entire user experience and the overall performance of the models. The 17 inches model is incorporated with 16GB of RAM while the other models comes in with 8GB of RAM. The 17 inches model do have some variation due to its bigger display size. Even with the display resolution, the 17 inches sports a 2560 x 1600 display while the other models carry 1920 x 1080 display. This will obviously cater for different viewing quality and user’s viewing pleasure as well. But again, the experience itself is entirely subjective depending on the taste and interest of the individual involved.

In addition to the ones mentioned above, the Gram 2020 lineups also feature Wi-Fi 6 and Thunderbolt 3 port. While some might not consider the inclusion of Thunderbolt 3 a must, those who are gamers at heart would definitely rejoice with this addition in the laptop built. The reason being is that Thunderbolt 3 allows the connection to a more powerful external GPU which is worthwhile when it comes to gaming needs for some users. So, the Gram 2020 series can cater for both personal and professional use as well.
