Considering your options between the LG Gram 17 and the Samsung Galaxy Book3 360, you should consider the following tradeoffs: if portability is paramount, the Samsung is a bit more portable. It has a touchscreen and a smaller OLED screen, which often offers better colors and contrast, making it suitable for media consumption and general use, especially with its longer battery life. The LG, on the other hand, is more expensive but offers more storage and memory, which can be crucial for intensive tasks. Its larger, higher resolution screen lacks touch functionality but might be more comfortable for long hours of work and multitasking. Both have similar processors and integrated graphics, which are sufficient for general use and some light engineering tasks, but neither is optimized for intensive gaming or high-end graphics work.

Sascha Mölck | August 2022
"The LG Gram 17 is a light office laptop with a large display and great battery life. The newest incarnation of the Gram 17 can be classified as a model update. LG uses the predecessor's compact, light magnesium case along with an identical port configuration (including 2x Thunderbolt 4) and keyboard. Changes can be found in the hardware. With the Gram 17 (2022), LG offers a light (approx. 1,350 g), mobile work device - and finally with a matte display."

Trusted Reviews

Adam Speight | July 2023
"The Samsung Galaxy Book 3 360 isn’t a laptop that the Korean manufacturer has shouted from the rooftops about, and it seems to have gotten little attention from anywhere. But, it is absolutely a laptop worth paying attention to. Compared to higher-priced devices, like the Dell XPS 13 (2022) and Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED (2023), it manages to offer a similar day-to-day experience despite the price difference. It’s really hard to justify the extra cash unless a boosted display is a requirement of yours."
