LG Gram 2018 – Review!

Today we’re talking about one of the lightest laptops packing some serious power that I’ve ever used. This is the new LG Gram and a big thanks to LG for sponsoring this video. I’ve always been a big fan of the Gram line for it’s portability and feature set, but they’ve made some very welcomed improvements this time around!

Internally, we have an Intel 8th Gen i7-8550U CPU, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, and even Thunderbolt 3! As for the display, here was have a Bright and vivid 15.6-inch Full HD IPS LCD Touchscreen that looks great all around and the fact that all of this here is packed into such a slim and light body is absolutely insane.

Check out the full video below –

As far as build quality goes, the nano carbon magnesium full metal body is not only premium, but exceptionally durable when compared to conventional laptops, without compromising its weight. The LG gram has passed seven industry standard tests to prove its military grade durability and while that may not always mean much to everyone, you’ll appreciate it in the long run.

They’ve also packed in some great features here, one of which is relocating the HD webcam to the top bezel of the display, a much better location that previous iterations having it in the bottom hinge. There’s a very nice backlit keyboard as well with 2 stages of brightness, which works great when working in low light situations, and a smooth trackpad that supports four-finger multitouch as well. And Thankfully we have a nifty fingerprint sensor built into the power button as well that works seamlessly with Windows Hello. Oh and there’s even a Micro SD card slot as well.

The speakers here are located on the bottom, but do have a nice and full sound given the size and everything inside of it and to top if all off, this thing is built for those who are constantly on the go. As I mentioned, this laptop is super lightweight. and with a 72Wh Lithium Battery you can get up to 16.5 hours of battery life depending on your use. Think about it, you could easily use this laptop on a single charge during an entire cross-country flight. No problem at all.

This specific model may be big in size and power, but I’m pretty happy with the performance here. I know I probably wont be editing any massive 4K video on it, but that’s perfectly fine with me. It’s a great all around travel laptop that really holds its own up against the competition. Coming in at just 2.41 lbs, it’s a no-brainer if you’re looking for something with better power and battery than a standard ultra book or laptop, without sacrificing portability.

Overall though, this is a solid laptop. Sure you won’t be crushing extreme video workflows on here, or doing any hardcore gaming, but for most all productivity for most all people, the LG Gram is a definitely contender to look at. But let me know what you think about it in the comments section below!
