As the name suggests, both laptops are quite light – the 16-inch weighs 1,285 g (with eGPU), the 17-inch weighs 1,435 g. And that’s with a big 90Wh battery that’s about the size you get on an airplane. Note that the 90Wh batteries are for laptops with Nvidia GPUs, those with just an iGPU get 80Wh batteries. In any case, it is charged with 65 W.

LG has prepared some neat tricks with the webcam and AI. If you’re using a second display, like the LG Gram+View wearable monitor pictured below, it can move the mouse pointer from one screen to another, following your gaze. Another feature keeps an eye on the people behind you and automatically dims the screen to prevent anyone from looking.
