Okay, before you get all up in arms about that headline: yes, I understand there are lighter laptops than the LG Gram family. The Surface Pro comes in at about the same mass, and Lenovo's crazy YogaBook from a year or so back, well that's in a class by itself. But the LG Gram is, to me, the best blend of portability and usability if what you're going for is the lightest possible backpack.
I first reviewed the LG Gram last spring, and LG has been busy building out the family ever since. In fact the updated model I had handy for this quick look, the 13Z975, isn't even top-of-the-line anymore: it's been supplanted by the 13Z980 and 15Z980, recently reviewed right here at Windows Central. But the 975 packs enough updates over my 2017 review device –touchscreen, fingerprint scanner, and 8th-gen Core i7– that I thought it deserved a quick revisit. And having used it as my daily driver for a few days, it's gonna be tough to get used to the comparatively clunky monster that's next up on the review roster!

So does the 15" model still have no competition in its weight class? I had hoped someone else would take it on - or at least come up with something 50% heavier...
