The LG Gram line of laptops are known for their featherweight designs, and the 2021 lineup continues the trend.

LG unveiled 5 new models during this year’s virtual Consumer Electronics Show including models with 14, 16, and 17 inch displays. The two smaller sizes are also available in convertible tablet configurations, with touchscreen displays and 360-degree hinges that let you flip the screen around for use in tablet, tent, stand, or laptop modes.

All of the new laptops are powered by 11th-gen Intel Core “Tiger Lake” processors with Intel Iris Xe graphics, and they’re all lightweight notebooks – the smallest weighs just 2.2 pounds, while the largest is just 3 pounds.

Prices range from $999 to $1,999 depending on the model and configuration, and the laptops are available in the US starting February 12, 2021 while the 2-in-1 convertible models will be available in mid-March.

You can find detailed specs in the table below, but in a nutshell the notebooks come with a choice of three screen sizes, and if you don’t need a 17 inch display you can opt for a convertible model that has a 360-degree hinge, touchscreen display, and support for pen input.

All of the laptops have 16:10 aspect ratio displays – for the 14 inch models, that would be a 1920 x 1200 pixel screen, while the larger models have 2560 x 1600 pixel displays.

The 2021 LG Gram laptops are also the first in the family to feature slim bezels around all four sides of the display for a higher screen-to-body ratio than previous generations. And as expected, the new LG Gram 16 and LG Gram 16 2-in-1 notebooks will replace the previous-gen 15.6 inch models in LG’s laptop lineup.

All of the new laptops are available with up to 16GB of LPDDR4x memory, they all have dual M.2 2280 slots for PCIe NVMe and/or SATA SSDs, and they all feature Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 Gen 1, headphone, and microSD ports as well as fingerprint readers, and backlit keyboards.

Here’s an overview of some key features for each of the new laptops:

  1. Interesting how the 14 inch 2-in-1 features increase the weight by 1/2 pound, or about 22%.

  2. Disadvantages:
    – Screen refresh below 90 Hz (everything below is budget)
    – no 4k resolution (120Hz not only gaming, but responsiveness in working with the media)
    – RAM Limited to 16 GB (in next year even MacBooks will have more RAM – now everyone is complaining about 16gb )
    – HDMI 2.0 (instead of 2.1)
    – Without USB 4 (DisplayPort 2.0)

    If they correct this, I will be the first to buy. I’m not the only one

  3. The 14″ model should have a resolution of at least 1440p to have a useful scaled resolution, other then that, the lineup looks good.
