It is quite effective in carrying out that particular duty. The notebook's 11th-generation Tiger Lake CPU is more than capable of handling a variety of programs and office-based duties with ease. The black version of the LG Gram 17 costs $1,650 and has a 1TB solid-state drive and an Intel Core i7 processor. The silver version costs $1,775. These models, however, are referred to by the size of their displays rather than their physical dimensions. The following is a list of the requirements for our evaluation unit: (model 17Z90P)
The chassis of the LG Gram 17 is made of nanocarbon and magnesium, and it has silver "Gram" emblems on both the top cover and the bottom bezel. Its chassis is 14.7 x 10.25 inches, making it smaller than the chassis of 17-inch laptops such as the Dell Inspiron 17 (16.3 x 11 inches) and the Gigabyte Aero 17 measures 15.6 x 10.6 inches; nonetheless, it is still a significant presence on your desk.
Consequently, the LG Gram 17 is an excellent choice for business and school that requires regular travel to different locations. Its presence was so subtle in my bag that I hardly noticed it. When I was transporting it, I couldn't help but think that it's the type of apparatus that would be ideal to be transporting if you want to prevent injuries related to repeated strain and postural issues.
One of the issues we had with the keyboard on the LG Gram 17 that we tested in 2019 was that it was not very responsive. Because of the full-sized number pad, several of the keyboard's keys were shrunk, making it more difficult to type accurately. This issue has been resolved in the 2021 version of Gram 17.
When I was cross-checking data on many spreadsheets, having this additional space proved to be quite helpful. It's a chore that, if you don't have enough screen space, can be irritating, but I breezed through it on the LG Gram 17's display, thanks to its enormous dimensions.
The LG Gram 17 offers several connectors that should be useful in various business and educational environments. These ports include two USB-A ports, an HDMI port, and a slot for a MicroSD card. Having to wait an excessive amount of time for information to transfer to storage devices is one of the most significant factors that reduces productivity. The Thunderbolt 4 ports on the Gram 17 significantly speed up this process.
The most significant improvement made to the 2021 LG Gram is deservingly the installation of the 11th-generation Intel Core i7 chipset. The processing power made routine activities like web surfing and Microsoft Office apps a breeze. The results of our tests indicate that it is suitable for those less intense jobs; nevertheless, it is not ideal for tasks that need a lot of CPU time.
During our battery life test, the Gram 17 dominated the competition by lasting slightly over 13 hours. I was concerned that the LG's 17-inch size and WQXGA resolution display could drain the 80Wh battery more quickly than it would with other laptops because of its lifespan value. However, my concern was unfounded. Nope. LG has essentially solved the second primary customer turnoff for larger laptops: a lack of battery life. Along with its perplexing weight, this is a significant accomplishment. The LG Gram 17 has a lot to celebrate after its victory.
