Last month, LG announced the lineup for LG 2021 Gram Laptops, which came with internal upgrades and a new, improved design. In total, the company unveiled five models – Gram 14, Gram 16, and Gram 17.
While LG already revealed the models last month, it hadn’t announced the pricing or availability details. Now, the three models of the LG 2021 Gram laptops lineup are available for purchase in the USA.
LG 2021 Gram laptops to feature 16:10 aspect ratio and backlit keyboards
The new LG 2021 Gram laptops lineup features a 16:10 aspect ratio display in all of the models. Moreover, the models also come with a new ‘four-sided slim bezel display’ while offering a 90& screen-to-body ratio.
As the name suggests, the Gram 14 features a 14-inch display, while Gram 16 and Gram 17 feature 16-inch and 17th-inch screens respectively. All three models sport 8GB/16GB LPDDR4x RAM with up to 2TB NVMe SSDs. Additionally, the Gram 17 model comes with an IPS panel with a 2,560 x 1,600p resolution.
All of the models in the LG 2021 Gram laptops lineup are MIL-STD-810G compliant and come with Wi-Fi 6 connectivity, fingerprint readers, and backlit keyboards.
All three models also come powered by the Intel 11th-gen Tiger Lake i3 processor along with Iris Xe graphics or UHD graphics. The devices are certified through the Intel Evo program, meaning the laptops are capable of offering at least nine hours of battery life.

LG Gram series to be super-lightweight and easy-to-carry
When the laptops were unveiled last month, the LG 2021 Gram laptops lineup was tipped to feature super-lightweight laptops with a focus on portability and easy to carry around.
While the new 2021 models couldn’t live up to the promise, but the laptops are still some of the slimmest and lightest laptops around. The Gram 14 model weighs just 999 grams while Gram 16 weighs 1.19 kg and the Gram 17 weighs just 1.35 kg.
The Gram 14 is priced at just $999 while the Gram 16 and Gram 17 are available for $1,299 and $1,799 respectively. More news is expected to come out soon on the availability of these devices in the Indian market.
Interestingly, LG is also expected to launch two 14-inch and 16-inch variants with a 2-in-1 form factor, meaning they will support stylus pens. According to LG, the new series will come with higher-resolution displays that cover 99% of DCI-P3 color space. The company also reworked the touchpad and keyboard, which are likely to be larger and offer an easy typing experience.
