Best LG gram 14 accessories Windows Central 2020
The LG gram 14 is a remarkable Ultrabook, not least because of its sub 1kg weight. It's genuinely excellent by itself, but once you own one, the next step is making your experience even better with some great accessories to help you get the most from it.
- Top mouse: Logitech MX Master 3
- Portable docking: StarTech Thunderbolt 3 mini dock
- Expanded storage: Samsung EVO Select 256GB memory card
- Portable storage: Samsung T7 Touch SSD
- Desktop graphics: Razer Core X
- Keep it safe: tomtoc 360 sleeve
- Everyday carry: Timbuk2 Command
- Productivity boost: ASUS ZenScreen GO
Logitech's MX Master 3 connects via Bluetooth or the included nano receiver, and supports up to three machines at once. Tracking is accurate, and thanks to its design, this is about the most comfortable mouse you can ever put your hands-on, and it'll charge up over USB-C using the same cable as your smartphone.
Making use of the Thunderbolt 3 port is smart, especially with this portable dock. It offers up one USB-A 3.0, RJ45 Ethernet, and two DisplayPorts that can be easily carried around in your laptop bag. It can handle two 4K displays at 60Hz, and it's backed up by a solid warranty for added peace of mind.
Even with a 512GB SSD inside, you may still find yourself needing some additional storage. Samsung's EVO Select microSD cards boast fast read and write speeds of up to 100MB/s and 90MB/s, respectively, and can handle 4K video and hi-res photos with ease. You get a 10-year warranty, which is fantastic, and you can always pop it out and use it elsewhere when you need to.
Samsung's T7 Touch is fast and tiny, and the best way to add storage to your gram 17. It supports USB 3.2 over USB-C for high-speed data transfer. Not only this, but this palm-sized SSD supports 256-bit hardware encryption and comes with a 3-year warranty, as well as a built-in fingerprint scanner to keep your data safe.
The gram 14 only has integrated Intel Iris Plus graphics, which is excellent for most purposes, but if you need a little more power, then you'll want to look towards an eGPU. The Razer Core X is an enclosure for a desktop graphics card that hooks up to the laptop over Thunderbolt 3 and works in tandem with the processor in the laptop to deliver power for professional use or even gaming.
Carrying your gram 14 in this sleeve will make sure it's always safe. It has thick bumpers on the bottom two corners as well as plenty of padding along all edges for extra protection. The main pocket is soft-lined, and there are even two extra external pockets for your smaller accessories or smartphone.
The Timbuk2 Command Messenger is perfect for anyone who commutes daily or is a frequent traveler. It has plenty of room inside with padding for your laptop, two secure clips that hold the front of the bag in place securely, and it can be carried either in-hand or over your shoulder with the included strap. It's also available in a range of different colors to best match your own personal tastes.
The ASUS ZenScreen GO is a portable 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display that you can hook up to your laptop over a single USB-C cable. It also has a built-in battery, so it won't drain your laptop's power for up to four hours while being used. It's also got a USB-A adapter, but having an extra display this good is excellent for on the go productivity with your gram 14.
Making a great laptop even better
The LG gram 14 is a great laptop on its own, but accessorizing it properly makes it even better. The Logitech MX Master 3 is probably the best wireless mouse you can get right now, carrying the legendary name proudly and remaining one of the most ergonomic mice on sale today. For folks who still prefer a mouse to a trackpad, it's a must buy.
You'll want to protect it, too, and even though it's tough, you can't go wrong by popping it inside a sleeve when you travel, also if it's going inside another bag. The affordable tomtoc 360 sleeve is water-resistant and packed with soft foam to keep your gram 17 safe from the world when you leave home or the office.
It's also worth making use of Thunderbolt 3 since you have it, and even a small dock like the one from StarTech can expand your laptop's capabilities greatly. Add a couple of external monitors and Ethernet to transform the gram 14 into a full desktop workstation, whether you're at home or on the road.
