LG gram 17 17Z90N (2020) Review Rundown
LG's 17-inch laptop uses an illuminated chiclet keyboard, with keys that offer a short stroke and clear pressure point. The gram 17's display does lack a few qualities we look for in Windows laptops at this price. Still, it offers the most compelling combination of screen size and light weight that we've seen from any laptop in recent memory.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The 2020 LG Gram 17 weighs just under 3 pounds (1.4 kilograms) Despite its tall 17-inch display, it's incredibly light with a long battery life. The keyboard's new number pad is great, but the centered touchpad might lead to accidental cursor movement. processor performance is stepped up some, thanks to the addition of a 10th-gen Intel Core i7-1065G7.
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
Despite its 17-inch format, the LG Gram 17 belongs to the group of slim and mobile office laptops. Its weight of about 1,350 grams (~2.98 lb) remains below that of most 14- and 15.6-inch laptops. In addition to the low weight, the 16:10 display represents another selling point of the laptop.
Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The LG Gram 17 has a much larger chassis and as much as four additional inches of screen real estate. Much of LG's reputation comes from its high-quality TVs, so you'd expect the Gram 17 to have above-average display quality. The Gram 17's Intel Iris Plus integrated graphics are at a disadvantage when it comes to graphics performance.
Reviewers from Techadvisor have found the following[***]:
The LG gram 17 is the best 17in laptop you can buy in the market. The magnesium alloy chassis feels sturdy even if the magnesium alloy looks and feels like plastic. The screen is pretty bendy so it's a good job it's not a touch display, but this is a sacrifice to keep the weight down. The keyboard has a springy feel with a decent amount of travel, which will likely divide the crowd.
Reviewers from Techradar have found the following[***]:
The LG Gram 17 weighs just 2.98 lbs and is just 0.7 inches thick. The laptop is packed with a top-end Intel Core i7-1065G7, but it's configured down to a 15W TDP, down from the 25W that you'll find in some more powerful configurations. Despite the flexibility of the keyboard deck, typing on this laptop is an absolute dream.
Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
LG Gram 17 is the latest example of laptop manufacturers bounding forward with Moore's Law. It packs a gorgeous 2560 x 1600-pixel display into an incredibly lightweight package. Thanks to the Intel Core i7-1065G7 CPU and 16GB of RAM, the Gram 17 had no problem loading up 30 separate Google Chrome tabs.
Reviewers from Trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The LG Gram 17 was the lightweight champion of 2019, weighing so little you'd assume it was manufactured in Hogwarts. The new 2020 model improves further on this seemingly supernatural laptop – with an updated processor, larger battery and improved display. However, LG seems to be running short of magic dust, with the benefits of the new upgrades constrained by the uniquely slender and ultraportable form factor.
