Engadget Review

The LG Gram 17 is an impressive display of what laptop makers can achieve if they focused solely on shaving pounds and inches. It’s incredibly thin and light for something packing a 17-inch screen, and is a gorgeous canvas for movies and multitasking. But it lacks the power you’d need for taxing tasks like video editing or serious gaming -- things people actually want a big screen for. If you’re looking for a big laptop to carry around when you travel, but don’t need it to handle anything too demanding, the Gram 17 is a solid choice. But most people would be better served by a more powerful 15-inch notebook.
