LG Gram 15 delivers a big screen and battery without the weightThe 15.6-inch laptop ran forever in our tests, but weighs less than 2.5 pounds.
Most 15 inch laptops weighs in round 4 pounds but not the LG Gram. It weighs a remarkable 2.4 pounds. It is made from nano carbon magnesium that is tougher than the shell of conventional laptops that keeps it light weight. However, despite LG's durability claims, the laptop does feel a bit flimsy, especially the thin lid. So you wanna be careful with that. Lift that lid up and you're greeted with a nice big 15.6 full HD touch display. It's not the brightest screen so I wouldn't plan working in the sun. And it bounces so much when you touch it that using it can be a little frustrating. But at least LG put the web cam above the screen so no nostril cam this time around. The touch pad and keyboard are keyboard are decent even if the, Enter and backspace keys are a little too small for comfort, but fans of number pads might think it's worth the sacrifice. LG also added a finger print sensor into the power button so you can sign on quick with Windows Hello You get a fair amount of ports too, and including a USB C thunderbolt 3 port that can be used for charging the laptop even off a battery pack. The laptop we used is LG's top of the line $2000 with an eight gen intel core i7 processor that helped Push performance notable beyond what the 2017 model was capable of. What was more amazing was the 14-hour battery life we got in our streaming video test. I didn't get that during more typical use, but I got through a day's work without reaching for a power cord. Basically if you want a large screen, a long battery life and [UNKNOWN] travel way possible this is the answer, just be prepared to pay for it. [MUSIC].
