LG Gram 17 (17Z90N-V)
PCQuest|March 2021
The LG Gram 17 mobile office laptop comes with a huge 17-inch screen. Despite having large screen LG kept it light and thin, only 1.350 KG weight and 17.4mm thick. At the first look, it gives me impression of being a heavyweight laptop, but it feels featherlight when I pick it up. But what about durability and performance? Let’s check out

Build quality

LG Gram 17 has an elegant design and slim case built out of magnesium alloy which keep is lightweight and enhances the durability. The dark silver-grey case has a smooth matte surface that is not at all susceptible to fingerprints. Despite having 17.4 mm thickness, it looks sleek. There are no noticeable sharp edges. The hinges allow to open the screen up to 140 degrees and it holds the display tightly in position.

17-inch Display

The 17-inch screen IPS display with 16:10 format and offering a native resolution of WQXGA (2560x1600p). It has a contrast of 1077:1 and brightness of 354 cd/m². The screen delivers vivid colours and clear imagery without any distortion at any angle.

Working on the screen is pleasure, with its superb colour reproduction. Text appears sharp and viewing any video or image remain steady even from any angle. But the reflective display surface, make it difficult usually in outdoor conditions.

One thing which I missed with the LG Gram is touch capability which we can find with most of the Windows laptops at this price.
