    Meh specs.

    Only good thing is the weight.

    • +9 votes

      It got a lot of positive votes last time. I like the 16:10, 500 Nits, weight and apparent 72wh battery. No stock near me tho.

      •  

        I agree. It's actually pretty good for the price, especially if you are looking for portability

          The only benefits I see in this laptop are

          1. The 16:10 screen
          2. 72wh Battery
          3. Weight
          4. Chassis material

          Unfortunately the rest of the specs are a trade-off , which can limit it's long term usability.

          i5 quad-core CPU
          8GB RAM non-upgradeable
          256GB SSD

          If you can find a Yoga Carbon in store at Officeworks it might be a better option long term due to it's 16GB RAM and 512GB SSD

      If U have a play at a Jbhifi store, feels so cheaply made. Even though chassis is carbon fibre supposed to be… Just felt Soo cheapish.. Didn't particularly like the keyb also.

      Edit: to be fair that was last year's model and apparently the 2021 has lots of improvements.

        Can't compare … But yes, the lightest 14" laptop in the world won't feel like a nice solid chunk of milled aluminium ..

        And I actually thought it felt pretty awesome for a 999 gram laptop

    •  

      Just had a look at the 17" model… Damn 1.35kg

      Thats as heavy as my 13" spectre. Either there's going to be super flex on these or super crazy materials to warrant the $3k price tag

      •  

        You definitely experience some flex because it's super thin and made of carbon. My Sony Vaio 13" is also made of carbon and I can feel the flex

          A legendary machine ahead of its time! I loved mine.

            @mitch01: I miss Sony’s designs. They really made the coolest stuff for a long time.

        •  

          The 2021 model has a magnesium chassis not carbon fibre, I've got the 16" and there's not much flex.

      •  

        Feels pretty good & solid to me for the weight ..

      •  

        Yeah the sweet spot is definitely the 1.1kg 16", i got the i5/16gb model for 2K on prime day and love it.

    If only 16gb RAM …

    Scores 88% on notebookcheck … So very good

    I got the 17" 2021 Gram and it's been great.

    For me I don't really value performance that highly as I know I'm not going to be gaming or doing highly intensive tasks so I'm alright sacrificing performance for potentially better battery life.

    Where the laptop exceeds expectations is the display - 17" laptops are harder to come by as it is, LG add a 16:10 aspect ratio which is great. Screen is nice and bright and I'm liking the colours.

    The minimal bezels and weight of the unit is top notch also. A 17" that is portable has been my dream laptop and so far I'm liking it and have no issues.

      I got one too, its fine. My only regret is they did an offer for the 16" … but hey the 17 is better.

      The only slight quibble, the speakers are not as good as a mac and the random bloatware installed by lg. the screen is a real step up to anything else I've seen available.

      Can U comment on typing experience when the laptop is on your Lap for the 17" 2021 model?
      I tried the 2020 model last year typing while on my lap for a good 5mins and it wobbled like a headbanger.

      I have been watching reviews on this year's and noticed good improvements on screen, keyboard and tighter hinge?

  •  

    is the ram upgradable?

    •  

      Unfortunately the RAM is not upgradeable

  •  

    One of the few really good Windows laptops.

  •  

    Upgradeable storage?

  •  

    I like LG Gram laptops except the keyboard in the 16 inch one I tried felt "crunchy". My finger joints actually felt bad afterwards. But reviews say that there is variation between 14, 16, and 17 inch versions.

    Pulled the trigger.

      Nice … I am still tempted … but hard to bite the bullet .. but at $1200 it's pretty solid
