In addition, the flagship LG gram 17 is a CES 2020 Innovation Award Honouree.

The LG gram laptop series has been redesigned for 2020 with a minimalist, seamless, and premium design. In addition, the flagship LG gram 17 is a CES 2020 Innovation Award Honouree.

UPDATED (01/17/2020): The LG grams will be available in early 2020 at Costco Canada, BestBuy Canada, Amazon.ca and other retails for CA$1,599.99 to $2,199.99.

UPDATED (01/09/2020): Updated specifications, added weight to systems. Even though they sound heavy via the paper specifications, the LG gram laptop lineup is surprisingly light (as we experienced at CES), especially the 17-inch version.

ORIGINAL STORY:

“The LG gram series continues to lead the industry in delivering beyond expectations when it comes to portability without sacrifice. Historically, customers had to choose one feature among performance, portability and battery life. LG gram is proof that this adage is no longer true.”

Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division

With a 17-inch WQXGA IPS display, the LG gram 17 boasts a 16:10 screen ratio. This ratio allows for more space for video, photo, and document editing. The LG gram 15 and 14, on the other hand, offer up 1080p IPS displays. Both models boast a larger screen in a smaller form factor with the LG gram 15 squeezing into a 14-inch body size and the LG gram 14 into a 13.3-inch body.

The LG gram series offers up a minimalist, seamless, and premium design.

Screens aside, all three models are powered by 10th Gen Intel Core processors with Iris Plus graphics and up to 24GB of DDR4 RAM. The two larger systems featured a large 80Wh battery. LG states that the Mega Cooling System helps keep the systems cooler and quieter, even while performing more intensive operations.
