LG announced its annual refresh of the gram family of laptops at this year's CES, and it came with big news fo the lineup, especially the gram 15 - which actually became the gram 16 - and the gram 14. All laptops in the gram family now have 16:10 displays, which means they're slightly taller than the conventional 16:9 panels most laptops still have.
In the case of the gram 16, that means the display is now 16 inches diagonally, which is why it's no longer called the gram 15. It also got a bump in resolution, now using a WQXGA panel with 2560 by 1600 pixels, just like the gram 17.
The LG gram 16 is what the company sent me to review, which is kind of perfect because I reviewed its predecessor last year. Aside from the display, the design has also been tweaked slightly, ditching the orange accents on some of the keyboard's keys and using a larger fingerprint sensor on the power button. The trackpad is also much larger than it was on the gram 15.
On top of that, there are the upgrades you'd expect with a hardware refresh, but that doesn't mean they're small. It uses Intel's new Tiger Lake processors, either the Core i5-1135G7 or the Core i7-1165G7, and those are a huge upgrade over their predecessors. especially the GPU, with Intel's Iris Xe Graphics blowing last year's Iris Plus Graphics out of the water.
I'll be doing a full review soon, but in the meantime, you can check out my first impressions of the gram 16 in the video below.
