I usually won’t recommend anyone buying a 17 inch laptop unless they are using it for desktop replacement or save on gym membership. But this is different. The LG gram 17 is the lightest 17 inch laptop currently in the market. How light? Just 1,340 grams.
Yes, the LG gram 17 weighs around the same as a typical 15 inch laptop. (I think some 13 inch laptop might be heavier too) That’s pretty amazing. Not only that, the body is around the same size as a typical 15.6 inch laptop. That means if you are upgrading from a 15.6 inch laptop, you can continue using your laptop bags.
And LG did not sacrifice the ports to make their laptop smaller and lighter. You still get 3 USB ports, 1 Thunderbolt 3 port, 1 HDMI port, 1 3.5mm audio port and a MicroSD card reader. And the battery life is up to 19.5 hours.
The LG gram 17 retails at S$2,799. Besides the 17-inch model, the gram also comes in 15, 14, and 13 inch models.
