  • - Hey guys, this is Austin.

  • Last time we built an entire setup inside a backpack,

  • so today we're back here with a minimalist desk setup

  • featuring the one and only LG Gram,

  • and of course, as always, huge shout out to LG

  • for being awesome enough to sponsor this video.

  • Unlike last time, today we're using

  • the full-sized 17-inch Gram.

  • Now we did briefly check this out at CES,

  • but the idea is that you're getting

  • all of the benefits of the standard Gram,

  • just with a much, much larger screen.

  • This is a surprisingly thin laptop, though.

  • At less than three pounds,

  • it's less than half the weight of a lot of gaming laptops

  • I've been taking a look at lately.

  • You see this right now?

  • This is me holding it in one hand.

  • I would not do that with a thiccc boi laptop.

  • Don't ask what a thiccc boi laptop is,

  • (laughing) by the way.

  • That means it's properly portable.

  • I mean, you can take your Ken videos on the go.

  • So the laptop has always had a nice display.

  • The Grams have had usually good 1080p panels,

  • but this guy steps it up to a full 2560x1600 resolution,

  • which not only gives you a lot of screen real estate,

  • but importantly you get in that portable package.

  • I know I kind of keep reiterating this,

  • but that's the main reason why

  • you would go with something like the 17-inch Gram.

  • It really is the main reason why this exists

  • over something that's one of the smaller options.

  • It's just such a unique value proposition.

  • The specs are all very similar to other LG Gram models.

  • This guy has that same 72-watt hour battery

  • for pretty much all day battery life.

  • You've got the quad-core i7 processor,

  • 16 gigs of RAM as well as a 512-gig SSD.

  • And importantly, this guy does have

  • a full Thunderbolt 3 port.

  • Now that's important because

  • as you'll be seeing in a second,

  • we can do a lot of stuff with that,

  • but it also enables some additional usage

  • beyond just purely charging it

  • or using something like USB-C.

  • However, because it has such a large display,

  • we also have a lot of functionality

  • to get real work done.

  • Like Photoshop.

  • And that's real work if you're Ken Bolido.

  • So I asked Ken, could you please give me

  • a cool Photoshop file to demo the Gram with,

  • and what he does is he gives me a 1.9-gigabyte file

  • which apparently is every thumbnail he's ever made

  • all in one, like, what, how many layers is it?

  • - [Ken] 90.

  • (heavy sighing)

  • - All right, well, actually, you lied, Ken.

  • There's 83 files here.

  • I'm just gonna start disabling things.

  • What is all under, oh wow,

  • you've got, like, a lot of different things here.

  • What is, oh, that's a This Is thumb, okay.

  • I'm gonna be a little bit fair.

  • This is obviously not the way to make thumbnails,

  • but what this is is a pretty good representation

  • of a very heavy Photoshop file

  • that if you're doing a lot of layers

  • and adjustments and stuff

  • that something like this could totally handle.

  • You know what, I actually kinda like what I look at here,

  • because this has got that big 17-inch screen.

  • Can we just make this the minimal setup?

  • Like, is this just it?

  • Like, the end?

  • Is that minimal enough?

  • Fine.

  • (sighing) Let's go actually do the real setup.

  • So this is what Ken and I have cooked up for the setup.

  • It looks pretty clean,

  • but there is some pretty cool stuff here.

  • First of all is the monitor.

  • This is the brand-new LG 5K UltraWide.

  • Now to be fair, with a 17-inch screen,

  • you don't really need an extra display.

  • However, because we have the desk space for it,

  • I feel like it's always nice to have

  • a little bit of extra screen real estate.

  • The panel itself is top-notch.

  • With a 5120x2160 resolution,

  • not only is it a 21:9 UltraWide,

  • but almost more importantly than that,

  • it is a very accurate display.

  • So not only do you have the full DCI-P3 color space,

  • but it also supports HDR 600,

  • which is really important because

  • when you're working with stuff like photo and video editing,

  • you want your screen to actually look color-accurate,

  • and that's something you definitely get,

  • albeit at a little bit of a price. (laughing)

  • it has HDMI as well as DisplayPort,

  • but right now we're taking advantage

  • of the Thunderbolt port.

  • Now this is really nice because with that single cable,

  • the Gram not only display a 5K output,

  • but we also have a couple of extra USB ports on the monitor

  • and it has a full 85 watts of power delivery,

  • which is more than enough for the Gram

  • as well as most other fairly powerful laptops.

  • What really pushes it over the top

  • is the graphics card.

  • This is the AORUS RTX 2070 gaming box.

  • We've got a ton of use out of the older RX 580 eGPUs.

  • What's cool about this is that of course

  • it is an external graphics card,

  • it supports Thunderbolt 3, but the best part is,

  • it now has those sweet, sweet RTX graphics.

  • Again, with a single Thunderbolt cable,

  • we are powering the Gram, but instead this time

  • we're running it directly to our external GPU

  • which is then going out via DisplayPort to our monitor.

  • And not only is this giving us

  • a ton of extra graphics horsepower,

  • but it also enables some fun new things, like gaming.

  • I guess like getting real work done, but, uh, gaming!

  • So while we should be working,

  • if you want to, say, I don't know,

  • play a game or two like Apex,

  • it actually is totally playable here.

  • Now of course that is because we have Thunderbolt

  • and the RTX 2070, I'm running this way,

  • but (laughing) playing at the full native res

  • of the monitor, 2560x1600, mostly on Medium settings,

  • we're actually getting a good, like, 50 frames per second,

  • and that's on the internal display.

  • We'll actually be a little bit higher

  • if we were, say, using an external monitor.

  • Dude, Thunderbolt's the best, man.

  • I mean, sure, of course you can use this

  • to be productive and get work done,

  • or you can play games.

  • For the keyboard, I like using the one built into the Gram.

  • Not only does it have a nice feel, but it also is backlit.

  • On the mouse side of things, though,

  • we have the Logitech MX Master.

  • This is the go-to mouse for a lot of people, though.

  • Not only does it support Bluetooth

  • as well as connecting via USB dongle,

  • but on top of that you've got a ton of extra functions

  • like some cool extra buttons,

  • and it is a very ergonomic mouse.

  • We also picked out this little retro steampunk lamp,

  • as well as we have our Nixie tube clock

  • that we unboxed on an episode of Mystery Tech

  • a little while ago,

  • but mostly the coolest part of this whole setup

  • is the LIFX Beam,

  • and these are a bunch of strip things

  • that you can attach.

  • They're all magnet,

  • actually, are they magnetic? - Yes.

  • - I dunno, I just think they look cool.

  • They're fully RGB-addressable.

  • One of the nice things is you can kind of do them

  • in any kind of orientation.

  • They come with the little corner pieces

  • so you can kind of build a little bit of a setup here,

  • although I think the L with the monitor,

  • I think it looks nice.

  • You be the judge, did Ken get these on straight?

  • So that is our minimalist setup.

  • As always, links to everything including the LG Gram

  • will be in the description,

  • and since you're bored on YouTube right now anyway,

  • why don't you go check out our second channel, This Is.

  • Not only do I make videos over there every Monday,

  • but Linus and Ken have also made videos on it,

  • and they're much better than mine.

  • Although I probably shouldn't say that on camera.

  • They're almost as good as mine.

- Hey guys, this is Austin.
