Thin and light laptops aren’t as rare as they used to be, but LG continues to make some of the thinnest and lightest around, especially if you’re looking for a compact notebook with a big screen.

The company’s new LG Gram Pro line of laptops, for example, includes a 16 inch laptop with a starting weight of just 2.65 pounds, and a 17 inch model that starts at 2.87 pounds. But LG isn’t skimping on specs: the new LG Gram Pro series also feature high-res displays with 120 Hz or faster refresh rates, big batteries, and optional support for discrete graphics on select models.

While the LG Gram lineup has been around for years, the Gram Pro name is new this year. And the first three models in the LG Gram Pro portfolio are the LG Gram Pro 16 (16Z90SP), LG Gram Pro 17 (17Z90SP), and LG Gram Pro 16 2-in-1 (165T90SP).

Specs vary depending on the model, but all three are compact notebooks that come with 14th-gen Intel Core Ultra 5 or Core Ultra 7 processor options, up to 32GB of LPDDR5x-7467 memory, and up to 1TB of PCIe Gen 4 NVMe solid state storage (there are two M.2 slots for storage).

All three models also feature two Thunderbolt 4 ports, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 ports, an HDMI port, and an FHD IR camera with support for Windows Hello face recognition.

The laptops have dual cooling fans and, despite their lightweight designs, all models feature 77 Wh or higher capacity batteries.

The 16 inch models are available with a choice of 120 Hz, 2880 x 1800 pixel OLED or 144 Hz, 2560 x 1600 pixel IPS LCD displays, while the 17 inch model only comes with a 144 Hz, 2560 x 1600 pixel display panel.

And the clamshell models are available with an optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR6 memory. Models with discrete graphics also come with a larger 90 Wh battery. LG says the 16 inch 2-in-1 is only available with Intel Arc graphics and a 77 Wh battery.

All three models come with LG Gram Link software, which is designed to let you connect the Windows notebooks to an Android or iOS device for file sharing, photo transfer, and screen mirroring. There are a growing number of apps that do that though, so LG is trying to make its “link” app stand out by leveraging the AI features of Intel’s new chips to “intelligently categorize” photos stored on LG Gram laptops and allow you to search for photos by keyword.

While the LG Gram Pro laptops are the most impressive entries in the LG Gram 2024 lineup, the company is also launching four other non-Pro models, with screen sizes ranging from 14 to 17 inches and starting weights ranging from 2.42 to 2.98 pounds.

The standard LG Gram laptops lack support for discrete graphics or OLED displays, but they should also have lower price tags.

  1. No AMD alternative.. No USB4.. No 4k display.. I like this company but notebook sector need fresh personel.

  2. Wait, is LG or anyone else at this point selling laptops that do screen mirroring with an iPhone?
    If you know one, post it. Thanks

  3. After experiencing a 120Hz display on my Lenovo, I would never want to go back to 60Hz. I’m glad more companies are embracing 120Hz+ displays. I find it easier on my eyes, probably cause it’s smoother.

  4. I wish that the Fairphone 5 wasn’t so expensive for US consumers.

    I don’t understand lightweight laptops. Laptops aren’t super portable, they are just pc that is easier to move around. Weight should not be an important factor for laptops, as we have tablets and phablets for portability.

    1. Depends on use cases, these laptops are for business users, more like a presentation binder with papers (even size is pretty close, paper ones are ~15-16 inch usually). Edit or review some documents, drill some sheets and BI, show a presentation to a partner, reference some guides and papers.
      Try to carry modern 16″ MacBook Pro around if you run a medium size business.
      Regular mortals sit in another niches: low end typewrites for students and your typical office workers, portable workstations for developers, gaming laptops for obliviously gamers, tablets for media consumption, and so on.
