Design

This laptop has a sleek design and an ultra-lightweight body. Thanks to its magical material, LG succeeded in reducing the weight of the laptop to just over 1 kilogram. It used magnesium alloy, which has been increasingly used in portable laptops.

The LG Ram 17 doesn’t have an impressive look, starting with the lack of the Gram logo on the lid. There isn’t anything eye-catching about the design of this laptop.

It features wide, plain, dark silver surfaces, which offers a pleasant, smooth finish. In addition, the bezels surrounding the display is quite thin.

There is a large deck below the full-size keyboard, which included a Numpad, as well as a touchpad. The touchpad also acts as a fingerprint reader that you can use to log in with Windows Hello. However, there isn’t an IR camera option of login with facial recognition.

Not just that, you may also worry about build quality. The lid easily flexed when there’s pressure applied to it. The same thing happens to the keyboard, it will bounce up and down when you press on it. While this doesn’t affect the typing efficiency, it does raise a question of the durability of the laptop in the long term.

In addition to the Thunderbolt 3 port, the laptop sports all the important ports you may need. These include two USB-A 3.1 ports on the right side, a dedicated microSD card tray, a lock slot, and a headphone jack.

The left side of the laptop houses another USB 3.1 port, the Thunderbolt 3 port, and an HDMI input.

Display

The LG Gram 2020 sports a large screen that measures 17 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels. Overall, the display is colorful, bright, and sharp. The one downside of this screen is its flashy surface that will result in a reflection problem in bright rooms or outdoors.

Testing with a colorimeter shows that the screen of the LG Gram 17 clocks 104 percent of the sRGB color gamut. This score is lower than that of Microsoft’s XPS 17 that clocked at 132 percent and the MacBook Pro that clocked at 114 percent.

In addition, the display’s maximum brightness is 332 nits, a bit lower than the average max brightness of a laptop (379 nits).

Performance

Featuring 16GB RAM and an Intel Core i7 chip, this laptop can easily handle two dozen tabs on Google Chrome so that you can browse the web, view various pages, and do a lot of things at the same time. It chugged along instantly without any lags even after streaming multiple YouTube videos at 1080p. It’s not a laptop for gaming but you can rely on the Gram 17 for heavy workloads.

It gets good benchmark performance scores but it’s powered by a U-series chip, so it won’t be as fast as other models of the same size. On Geekbench 5, it scores 3,439 points, which is lower than the average score of a laptop (4,041).

While excelling in multitasking, the laptop struggled in a video transcoding test where it took 23 minutes, 59 seconds to convert a video from 4K resolution to 1080p resolution while its predecessor took only 19 minutes and 18 seconds. To compare, the average premium laptop takes about 18 minutes and 39 seconds to get the job done.

Battery life

The LG Gram 2020 doesn’t have a good battery life, lasting only 7 hours, 10 minutes whiles its predecessors could run for 12 hours straight.

In comparison, the Microsoft XPS 17 has a battery life of 9 hours and 5 minutes while that of the MacBook Pro is 10 hours and 55 minutes.

All in all, the LG Gram 2020 offers an unmatched lightweight experience for those who want a big laptop but hate heavy devices. It’s also great for those with heavy workloads, but it’s not a laptop for gamers.
