The new LG Gram Pro line of laptops are thin and light notebook computers with big, high-res displays featuring high screen refresh rates and optional support for premium features including OLED displays and discrete graphics (on select models).

First unveiled in December, the new LG Gram Pro 16, Gram Pro 17, and Gram Pro 16 2-in-1 are now available for pre-order. But they ain’t cheap: list prices start at $1400.

The good news is that LG isn’t skimping on specs. Some models have IPS LCD displays while others have OLED screens, but all of the LG Gram Pro notebooks feature 2560 x 1600 pixel or higher-resolution displays with 120 Hz or higher refresh rates and support for touch and pen input.

They’re powered by Intel Core Ultra 7 H-series processor with Intel Arc integrated graphics, and some models also have NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 discrete GPUs. And all of the LG Gram Pro notebooks available at launch feature at least 16GB of LPDDR4x-7467 RAM and 512GB of PCIe Gen 4 NVMe storage and 77 Wh or higher capacity batteries.

They’re also ridiculously lightweight for notebooks with 176 or 17 inch displays. The LG Gram Pro 16 has a starting weight of 1.2 kg (2.7 pounds), while the LG Gram Pro 17 starts at 1.3 kg (2.9 pounds). The heaviest of the bunch is the LG Gram Pro 2-in-1 convertible, which weighs 1.4 kg (3.1 pounds).

LG’s press release announcing availability of the new models focuses on high-end configurations with 32GB of RAM and 2TB of storage. But these models are even more expensive, with prices starting at $2100 (although the LG Gram Pro 16 OLED 2-in-1 with 32GB of RAM and 1TB of storage is currently on sale for $300 off, bringing the price for that model down to $1800).

Meanwhile the lowest price I can find at the moment is $1400 for an LG Gram Pro with an IPS LCD display, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. It’s available from LG for $1400. But it won’t ship until April (nearly a month after other models are expected to begin shipping).

  1. I’ve always found it strange to offer a low end discrete GPU like the NVIDIA RTX 3050 in combination with integrated graphics. It’s only 65% faster but since it’s fabricated on an older 8nm process it uses a lot more power (Intel Meteor lake uses TSMC 5nm for the iGPU). When you consider the added cost and complexity how is that trade-off worth it?

  2. I <3 big screen in mobile device like notebok but 16-inch display and hasn’t 4k 144Hz is a bummer..
    Still no AMD option. I think LG has a deal with Intel 🙁

  3. I am not sure I get the point of a very light 16 inch laptop besides a Guinness book entry? Why can’t LG use their engineering knowhow in developing a proper 14 or even 13 inch super light laptop?
