Reviews for the LG Gram 17Z90P-K.AAB8U1

LG Gram 17 Review: PRO Size, AIR Weight
Source: Pocketnow English
This is the 17-inch LG Gram, the company's latest and most powerful laptop, and proof that I'm glad they didn't pay attention to my emails. See I told them not to send me this machine. I chose a smaller variant for review because I felt there was just no way I could like this behemoth of a machine, and well.. Let's just say I was wrong in most things. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow, and this is our full review.

80% LG Gram 17 review: Slim and sophisticated
Source: It Pro English
17in laptops have become a comparatively rare sight in recent years, but the LG Gram 17 reminds us why they still have a place in modern business. Large without being unwieldy, this expansive ultraportable blends a superb screen and a great battery life with all the features you could want. That slim frame means it’s let down slightly by underwhelming multi-core performance, but providing you’re not planning to push it too hard, the Gram 17 more than makes up for this deficiency with its other qualities. Whoever said that bigger doesn’t mean better clearly never saw this laptop.

80% LG Gram (2021) Review: Refined, but still flimsy
Source: Mobile Syrup English
In my eyes, the biggest drawbacks with the LG Gram (2021) are its flimsy construction and the extra bloatware, neither of which necessarily ruin the experience. It’s still an excellent computer despite those things (and at least if you take the time, you can remedy the bloatware issue).

80% LG Gram 17 (2021)
Source: PC Mag English
With these issues addressed, the 2021 Gram 17 is a much improved and nearly complete package. The only big-screen buyers who might want to look elsewhere are gamers and content creators, who are better served by the excellent Dell XPS 17 or deluxe gaming rigs such as the Alienware m17. Not only is the Gram 17 light, but it's also pleasing to the touch and easy on the eyes. The massive screen is complemented by a comfortable keyboard and touchpad. Throw in a reasonable asking price and more than enough power for everyday office tasks, and you easily have an Editors' Choice winner for general-use, giant screen laptops.

85% Lg’s Latest Gram 17 Makes A Stellar Case For 17-Inch Laptops
Source: The Verge English
There are few 17-inch laptops to choose from and even fewer models that are as lightweight as this one. This year’s LG Gram 17 is unique in the sense that it’s more powerful than ever, but it doesn’t give up its portability. Oddly enough, the only competition it faces at the moment comes from within LG. The 16-inch Gram is lighter and less expensive, yet it features the same design, screen size, port selection, battery capacity, and specs (aside from having significantly less storage) for $1,399. You can find one that has the same 1TB storage as the Gram 17 for $1,599. If the Gram 17’s $1,799 price is too expensive, at least you have an alternative that’ll likely deliver the same great results.

100% LG Gram 17 (2021) review: Light it up
Source: Expert Reviews English
The 2020 LG Gram 17 was a great laptop but the 2021 model is even better. LG has made small improvements everywhere you look while doing nothing to undermine the attraction of the original. It’s still ludicrously light and portable for a 17in laptop, but this year’s version has better battery life, improved connectivity and faster performance. If you hanker after something that works just as well as a mobile workhorse as it does a desktop replacement, it’s pretty much the perfect solution. The only thing that might give you pause is that the LG Gram 17’s new sibling, the LG Gram 16, is cheaper and slightly more portable, while still offering a decent expanse of screen space to play with. Choose either one, though, and you’re highly unlikely to be disappointed.

LG has improved the two main complaints we had about the previous gram 17 meaning the 2021 model gains full marks. It's the most well-balanced 17in laptop on the market right now.

2021 LG gram Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the redesigned 2021 LG gram 17, also available in 16” and 14” sizes. It’s still an impossibly light magnesium alloy Ultrabook, but it has a more angular design, 16:10 aspect ratio WQHD+ displays across the size range and Intel 11th gen processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics. The display is now wide gamut with full DCI P3 color coverage. The laptop has a backlit keyboard, fingerprint scanner embedded in the power button, Thunderbolt 4, and a roomy 16:10 aspect ratio MS Precision trackpad.

100% LG Gram 17 review (2021): a super-light laptop for premium portability
Source: T3 English
Who knew you could get a laptop this light and this large? And to top it all, the LG Gram 17 (17z90p) offers high-end performance and a screen to die for. Unless you specifically need a touchscreen, 2-in-1, or a gaming laptop, you won't find finer for this form factor at this price.

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.

Intel Iris Xe G7 96EUs: Integrated graphics card in Intel Tiger Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 12 architecture with 96 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model. The Tiger Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm+ process at Intel.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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).
