LG gram band | LG Gram review: Pro(Gram)ed for productivity & portability
Its build quality is sturdy, and LG claims it is military standard. LGGram has a superior display with 16:9 aspect ratio.
LG, which recently refreshed its Gram brand of laptops in India, has introduced three models powered by the latest 11th-generation Intel Core processors. The models — LG Gram 17 (17Z90P), Gram 16 (16Z90P), and Gram 14 (14Z90P) – are lightweight, with the 14-inch model weighing under one kg and the 17-inch variant weighing only 1.35 kg. The laptop’s design is clutterfree and simple, but the plastic body seems out of place in the top-end model which retails for over Rs 1 lakh. Its build quality is sturdy, and LG claims it is military standard. LGGram has a superior display with 16:9 aspect ratio. The screen has an immersive feel while working or playing games. The IPS LCD panel with WQXGA resolution makes content appear appealing. LG should have, however, opted for a screen with a matte finish to remove glares. The device comes with a Core i5 or i7 processor, along with either 8GB or 16GB of LPDDR4x RAM. The SSD option is restricted to 512GB for all models but there is an expansion slot. The prices start at Rs 74,999 and go all the way up to Rs 1,06,999. The Iris Xe graphics may not please everyone and there should have been better graphics options. It comes with a Windows 10 Home operating system, upgradable to Windows 11. The chiclet backlit keypad along with the centrally located trackpad does a good job. Overall, the feedback from the keypad and mouse is good. LG says the device lasts for around 17 hours under ideal test conditions. During everyday use, one can get around five hours with high brightness and multitasking. It has HDMI, USB 3.1 Type-C, three USB ports, microSD card slot, headphone jack and ethernet. Apart from these ports, there is also an HD webcam that produces decent images.
