What is the lightest 17 inch laptop

No longer the lightest: LG Gram 2020 14 to 17 inch notebooks with Ice Lake

As always at this time, LG has announced the new LG Gram family with a press release in the newsroom, which will be shown for the first time in Las Vegas at CES 2020 in early January. In contrast to previous years, LG has apparently crushed the 13-inch notebook, the 14-inch notebook 14Z90N takes the lead in the lightweight competition with 999 grams, but has to face the two Acer Swift 5 and AsusPro B9 notebooks announced for IFA 2019 with 950 to 990 Give grams or 880 grams of beaten. All the more so since Acer has also integrated an optional dedicated Nvidia MX250 GPU into the 990 grams, which the LG Gram series lacks.

The 17-inch 17Z90N, the 15.6-inch notebook 15Z90N and the 14-inch 2-in-1 14T90N are probably still the lightest of their kind at 1,120 grams to 1,350 grams, and all of them have new tricks up their sleeves in 2020. It is very commendable that LG continues to rely on a wide variety of connections. For the first time, all 4 offer Thunderbolt 3 as standard, plus there are two or 3 USB-A ports, HDMI and one of the rare micro SD card slots that apparently even supports UFS. The already very good 72 Wh batteries of the predecessors have been increased to 80 Wh in the two largest models. Also new is not only Intel's Ice Lake CPU with Iris Plus GPU (except for the 2-in-1 with only UHD option) but also the change to two NVMe M.2 SSD slots from SATA in the predecessors.

Specifications

All previously known specifications are linked below, apart from the well-known dark silver, all 2020 LG Gram notebooks will now also be available in white. LG has not yet revealed prices and availability, but that will probably be made up for at CES. Presumably, the LG Gram 2020 family in Europe will again only be marketed in Spain, where it can at least be easily imported via Amazon Spain.

As a tech-enthusiastic youngster with an assembling and overclocking past, I still worked as a projectionist with the good old 35 mm film before I professionally entered the computer world and for 7 years as a Windows client at the Austrian IT service provider Iphos IT Solutions - and looked after the server administrator and project manager.
