Longevity matters

One of the significant advantages of laptops is that they can be used independently from a power outlet since they run on battery power. Due to this, it's incredibly important that laptops last a reasonable amount of time on a charge so that you can actually get a good amount of work done with them. Most laptops will range between 4-7 hours of life on a full battery charge, and this can change based on factors like screen brightness, screen size, and how taxing your activity on your system is.

The 2020 refresh of the LG gram 17, one of LG's newest laptops, has an excellent 17 hours of battery life thanks to the 80Wh battery, which is considerably larger than the 72Wh one found in the original device. Also contributing to the increased longevity is the new Intel 10th-Gen i7-1065G7 CPU, which runs more efficiently than older processors and thus, uses less power. This processor also enables the device to work with Wi-Fi 6, which is the latest Wi-Fi standard that improves connection speed and stability substantially.
