LG put some effort into creating a large-screen laptop with a compact size and a low weight. The new Gram 17 has a weight of just 1.3kg thanks to its magnesium alloy chassis and is pretty thin with a thickness of 17.8mm.
For about $1,700 you get a model with the Intel Core i7-8565U, 16GB RAM, a 256GB SSD, and a 2560 x 1600 pixels display:
This laptop uses a 2560 x 1600 pixel display, providing a good balance of detail for the size. An HD webcam and mic reside on the upper screen bezel. Inside, LG has equipped the Intel Core i7-8565U (Whiskey Lake) processor, 16GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD. Ports provided sound adequate, and Liliputing lists it as featuring a USB Type-C port, three USB 3.1 Type-A ports, a headset jack, an HDMI port, and a microSD card reader. Gigabit Wi-Fi is supported and a USB Type-C to Ethernet adapter for wired connections, says the source.
