Introducing the 2021 LG gram 17, the world’s lightest 17-inch laptop

The 2021 LG gram 17 is a CES 2021 Innovation award winner and is certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s lightest 17-inch laptop. Magnesium alloy construction with ultra-slim bezels results in a laptop that’s just 1.78 cm (0.70 inches) thin, weighing a mere 1,350 grams (2.98 pounds). It’s also surprisingly rugged, meeting the MIL-STD-810G military standard for durability.

As a laptop that adheres to Intel’s Evo platform, you can expect a combination of high performance and extraordinary battery life. The LG gram 17 is equipped with an 11th generation Intel Core processor, and Wi-Fi 6. It features a full range of ports including USB-C (Thunderbolt 4). Battery life is up to 19.5 hours on a charge.

The star of the show is its 17-inch QHD+ display, with 16:10 aspect ratio. That massive, high resolution display makes the LG gram 17 ideal for professional use.

Brilliant, professional quality 17-inch, 16:10 display

The first thing you notice about any laptop is its display. When you open the all-new LG gram 17 laptop, be prepared to be impressed. 

The 17-inch IPS panel is super-sized, offering expansive space to get work done. This laptop is a productivity powerhouse. QHD+ (2560 x 1600) resolution offers twice the pixels of Full HD, making everything onscreen razor-sharp. This also allows you to have more windows open and viewable at the same time. The 16:10 aspect ratio is ideal for professionals, showing 11% more on a page than a 16:9 display. That means less scrolling to find the information you need. 

Colours are accurate and life-like, with DCI-P3 99% colour gamut coverage, making the LG gram 17 a perfect laptop for creatives. The picture is stunning when watching videos, made even more immersive by its stereo speakers with 5W amp and DTS:X Ultra 3D audio.

Record-setting, ultra-light weight design

If you’ve been craving a big-screen laptop but making do with smaller models because you don’t want to deal with the bulk and weight, you’re going to love the LG gram 17.

A minimalist design with a magnesium alloy body, hidden hinge, and 90% screen-to-body ratio means this 17-inch laptop is just 1.78 cm (0.70 inches) thin. It weighs only 1,350 grams (2.98 pounds). That’s a world record for a 17-inch laptop. In fact, the Guinness Book of World Records certifies the 2021 LG gram 17 as the world’s lightest 17-inch laptop.

Despite the ultra-thin and ultra-light design, you aren’t giving up anything in the way of functionality. The LG gram 17 offers an impressive array of ports. It’s equipped with a full-sized keyboard with enhanced key stroke pitch, a widened 16:10 trackpad, fingerprint ID, and an HD webcam. 

Intel Evo platform certified with 11th gen Intel Core processors

The LG gram 17 laptop is certified to meet Intel’s demanding Evo platform. That means the performance of 11th generation Intel Core processors. It’s equipped with fast, LPDDR4X 4266MHz RAM. Storage is an ultra-fast M.2 NVMe 2880 solid state drive. Wireless connectivity is the latest high-speed Wi-fi 6.

Also part of the EVO standard are the ability to wake from sleep in under a second, Thunderbolt 4 connectivity, and class-leading battery life. In the case of the LG gram 17, the 2-cell lithium ion battery delivers up to 19.5 hours of use on a charge. Charging is via USB-C.

It may be the lightest 17-inch laptop on the planet, but the LG gram 17 is fully equipped for connectivity. Besides Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 wireless, you’ll find an HDMI output, plus two USB Type-A (3.2) ports, dual USB-C (USB 4.0 Gen 3×2), and an audio jack.
