    Meh specs.

    Only good thing is the weight.

      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 ..


        Imagine downvoting someones hands-on impressions.
        OzShills only ever want to hear great everything is.

        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.

    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
