The LG Gram Laptop has been selected as one of the Best Laptops of 2019 by U.S. magazine Consumer Reports.

Consumer Reports recently selected the best laptops by classifying notebook PCs into five size groups –- 10- to 11-inch, 12- to 13-inch, 14-inch, 15- to 16-inch, and 17- to 18-inch. The evaluation was carried out based on data such as users’ brand trust and satisfaction in addition to the results of rigorous product tests.

The LG Gram 14 was selected as the best product in the 14-inch product group. The evaluation team said that the LG Gram weighs about 2.2 pounds (about 997 grams) and is lighter than other notebooks of the same size. As a result, the LG Gram scored the highest points in terms of portability, one of the three evaluation items that also included ergonomics and performance.

The evaluation team also noted that the LG Gram delivers a powerful performance with the Intel Core i7 processor, storage space of 512 GB and 8 GB memories and last for up to 15 hours with its battery. The LG Gram 17-inch model was also chosen as an alternative to Acer's Nitro 5 model considered the best product in the 17- to 18-inch group.

Consumer Reports has also named Microsoft's Surface Go the best product in the 10- to 11-inch group. Overall, Apple's laptops yielded the best results with MacBook Air ranking first in the 12- to 13-inch group and MacBook Pro beating other 15- to 16-inch laptops.
