LG Gram 2022 lightweight laptops now available for $1,299 and up

The LG Gram line of laptops are known for their slim and incredibly light designs, but that doesn’t mean they sacrifice power. This year, LG introduced 6 new models equipped with 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 range includes a 1 kg (2.2 lb) screen LG Gram 14 laptop powered by Intel Core i5-1240P processor. The largest and heaviest model is still quite 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 1.35 kg (3 pounds).

First unveiled in April, LG says the new laptops are now available in the US with starting prices ranging from $1,299 to $1,599 (although I can only find 16- and 17-inch models in stock at the moment, you might have to wait a bit longer for the 14-inch and 15-inch LG Gram 2022 laptops to hit the streets).

All new laptops come with big batteries, support up to 32GB LPDDR5 RAM, two PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs, 1.5W stereo speakers, and a host of ports including Thunderbolt 4, USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, audio, and microSD card readers. Larger models also have full-size HDMI ports.

But there are some differences between the models. Models with 16- or 17-inch screens feature higher-resolution screens and support for an optional NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 discrete GPU (which isn’t exactly a powerhouse, but should offer at least a small performance improvement 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 touchscreens and 360-degree hinges that allow you to use the computer in laptop or tablet mode or something. between the two. These models also come with a Wacom AES 2.0 digital pen.
