The LG Gram line of laptops are known for their slim and incredibly lightweight designs, but that doesn’t mean they sacrifice horsepower. This year LG introduced 6 new models that are powered by 12th Intel Core-P processors with up to 12 cores, 16-threads, and Intel Iris Xe graphics.

Available with screen sizes ranging from 14 to 17 inches, the lineup includes a 1kg (2.2 pound) LG Gram 14 notebook powered by an Intel Core i5-1240P processor. The biggest, heaviest model is still rather compact: the new LG Gram 17 has a 17 inch WQXGA display and an Intel Core i7-1260P processor, but a starting weight of just 1.35kg  (3 pounds).

First unveiled in April, LG says the new laptops are now available in the US with starting prices ranging from $1299 to $1599 (although I can only find some 16 and 17 inch models in stock at the moment, so you may have to wait a little longer for the 14 and 15 inch LG Gram 2022 notebooks to hit the streets).

All of the new laptops feature big batteries, support for up to 32GB of LPDDR5 RAM, dual PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs, stereo 1.5W speakers, and a set of ports that includes Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, audio, and microSD card readers. Larger models also have full-sized HDMI ports.

But there are a few differences between the models. Models with 16 or 17 inch displays feature higher-resolution screens and support for an optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 discrete GPU (which isn’t exactly a powerhouse, but which should offer at least a small performance boost over Intel Iris Xe integrated graphics).

LG also offers 2-in-1 convertible style versions of the LG Gram 14 and 16. These models feature touchscreen displays and 360-degree hinges that allow you to use the computer in laptop or tablet modes or something in between. These models also come with a Wacom AES 2.0 digital pen.

LG had previously introduced the new LG Gram 16 and 17 in South Korea, but now the company notes that they’ll be joined by 14 and 15.6 inch variants when they launch in select markets in North America, Europe, and Asia during the second quarter of 2022.

  1. The 17 inch ’21 version I had was stunning. The only issue was the cooling was poor and hampered getting the most out of the CPU.
