TL;DR: The slim, 17-inch LG gram laptop is on sale in the PCMag Shop for just $1,499. (That’s $200 less than what you’d pay on Amazon or the LG website.)


Lightweight laptops are excellent for on-the-go productivity, but as our friends at PCMag have mentioned, it’s common for manufacturers to sacrifice display size for portability. 

Not with the LG gram 17Z990. Its sleek frame and display are ample at 15 and 17 inches wide, respectively, but it weighs a mere 2.95 pounds, making it the lightest laptop of its size (and even lighter than some smaller laptops). 

Its secret? A special metal alloy design featuring a combination of nanocarbon and magnesium gives it the look and feel of a metal laptop, minus the bulk — and at a fraction of the price, provided you buy yours from the PCMag Shop.

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. First, some important specs: The 17Z990 is remarkably strong for its weight, having been deemed military-grade durable after passing seven industry-standard tests. Inside its made-to-last frame, you’ll find a powerful 8th-generation i7-8565u Quad-Core Processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and a 72Wh Lithium Battery that lasts nearly 20 hours on a single charge. What’s more, its display boasts a stunning 2560 x 1600 resolution, and it comes equipped with the latest Windows operating system.

LG customer Photoaddict writes:

“I am a Mac lover, and have everything that Apple makes. But when I went to buy a 3rd laptop for photo editing I decided to buy the LG Gram 17 inch, after researching various laptops for weeks. I absolutely LOVE the LG Gram. The screen colors and resolution are great! It’s fast, and the finger print recognition instead of a password is wonderful. I am very happy with my choice.”

You’d pay $1,699 for the LG gram if you bought it on Amazon or directly from LG, but we found it on sale for a mere $1,499, saving you $200.
