Being very, very light.Sporting a metal alloy body made of nano carbon with magnesium, this laptop crams a 17-inch display into a chassis that weighs just under 3 pounds. That’s insane for such a big canvas. For example, the 15-inch MacBook Pro weighs 4 pounds.AdvertisementPort selection is pretty good, too, with a full-size USB port, USB Type-C, HDMI and a microSD reader.The only bummer is that the white model I played with at CES 2019 doesn’t seem to be coming to the U.S., so gray is our only option for now.You also get a sharp 17-inch 2560 x 1600-pixel display in a chassis that would normally accommodate a 15-inch laptop, so this thing is small and light. The screen is not only colorful in person, it sports a 16:10 aspect ratio, which makes it easy to see more content at once with less scrolling.Despite being so light, this is definitely not a lightweight when it comes to specs. You get an 8th Gen Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD. And you should for the fairly steep price of $1,699. Just don’t expect discrete graphics.LG is also promising up to 19.5 hours of battery life, but we’ll have to see how well that claim holds up in our tests.MORE: LG’s Rollable OLED TV R Is Beyond AmazingThere’s something really refreshing about the LG Gram 17’s sheer focus and sense of purpose.
