LG's new ultra-lightweight Gram laptop features some OLED screen and AI boost

Ahead of CES 2024, LG is launching new laptops in its ultra-light LG Gram and LG Gram Pro series. If you're in the market for an OLED display and better graphics, take a look at the 2024 LG Gram Pro lineup. As noted in our review last year, the biggest difference between pro and standard laptops last year was graphics – to say nothing of look and feel. For a more stark difference, we'll take a look at their more fashion-forward cousin, the LG Gram Style.

For 2024, there are the Gram Pro 16 and 17, and the LG Gram Pro 2-in-1 (more on what those two things are later). The Gram Pro 16 is available in standard wide quad or OLED displays as well as 2-in-1. The 2-in-1 also works as a laptop and tablet, with a touchscreen, a 360-degree adjustable hinge, and a chargeable wireless pen.

All are equipped with NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSDs, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards, and an FHD webcam with facial recognition. Like the LG Gram, you'll have the option of an Intel Core Ultra 5 or Intel Core Ultra 7 processor for the LG Gram Pro model. In the Pro lineup, the processors include Intel's AI Boost NPU hardware to accelerate AI tasks processed locally on the device.

The standard LG Gram series will be available in four different screen sizes (14, 15, 16 and 17-inch) and will include Intel Core Ultra processors. All of them include built-in full-HD cameras, making the little cameras especially useful for unexpected Zoom calls during work trips. But even the larger ones weigh less than your lightest pair of dumbbells—the entire lineup ranges from 2.42 to 2.98 pounds. The two largest have 2,560×1,600 displays – making them more suitable for watching video, extended reading on the Internet, or photo editing.

All new LG Gram models include the LG Gram Link app, which the company says will enable file sharing, photo transfer, and screen mirroring between your computer and an Android or iOS device. The app will use AI to categorize your photos, as well as make image search through keywords easy.
