LG Gram
The LG Gram Display performance is decent, with a little brightness of 311 nits, and a contrast ratio of 1030:1 with acceptable viewing angles. Achieving a CCT average of 6613K, a grey-scale average deltaE of 3.22, and average deltas between 2.5 and 3.0 across the saturation and ColorChecker tests. DeltaEs below 1.0 are accurate and anything below 2.0 is great. You can get the LG Gram from Amazon for $1000.

The display is a typical ultraportable panel: it’s a 13.3-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a basic 60 Hz refresh.

The LG Gram comes with an inter Core of i5-8250U processor, although you can configure the system up to the i7-8550U. The laptop comes with a storage of 256GB SSD and a RAM of 8GB, and a 13-inch 1080p display, with an enormous 72 Wh battery.

As for the durability of the LG Gram state that the laptop passes the MIL-STD-810G test suite, with shocks up to 20Gs and drops from over 1.2 meters.

Weight is where the Gram’s portability comes in. The overall dimensions and footprint are like other laptops, the webcam can remain above the display, so no nostril-vision like you get with the Dell XPS 13.

At 15mm thick it is not thin either but around the same mark as other laptops, and the thickness allows the laptop to include a full-sized HDMI port and two full-sized USB ports.

But the major feature of the LG Gram isn’t the internal hardware, the major selling point of the LG Gram is its portability, its weight.

The LG Gram 13 weighs just 965 grams (2.12 pounds), well below the typical 1.2 to 1.4 kilograms for a laptop of this size and class, and it’s noticeable. So the LG Gram is way lighter, with a good level of hardware inside, the portability of the LG Gram is much more standout from the rest. With such a light laptop like the LG Gram, you are wondering about what it is built with. The entire chassis is constructed from a magnesium alloy,

The LG Gram connectivity consists of a USB 3.0 Type-C port and a microSD card slot, along with a charging port. The LG Gram doesn’t include Thunderbolt 3 on the 13-inch models – we all need external storage to save the document or some order things, I think the microSD card slot was added because of this, not that space won't be enough it would, just for saving purpose.

The LG Gram also comes with a fingerprint reader integrated into the power button, it comes with an inbuilt speaker, which can get blocked easily when using the laptop on your lap.

Lightweight and compact, yet durable, LG gram laptops feature powerful processors and extended battery life, which means lots of freedom to roam while staying connected!
