    Good laptop why the i5 8GB more expensive XD

  • the 14 inch LG gram looks good, with it was similar pried to Surface Go Laptop. I really want a laptop that is light and portable but with upgradable ram and SSD

    • +1

      Verified against MIL-STD 810G: you can drop LG Gram from 1.2m and still survive, even run it over with a motorbike LOL

  • +11

    EXTREMELY misleading advertisement about the battery
    "Battery Life measured with 50% at 150nit Brightness/Wireless On/Document work (Adobe, Excel, Word, PPT, Outlook etc.) & 50% in standby mode."

    Seriously, since when is stand by battery life?

    • +1

      not exactly or totally misleading, check it out with Choice review :) - 13 hours with max brightness, I bet you lot of laptops out there cannot delivery this exciting number, especially at this on-sale price.

      • Heard of M1 Macbooks?

        • +8

          I am using a MacBook Pro M1 to reply your comment, so, yes, I do hear about it :). But compare to LG Gram:
          - You definitely have a shattered M1 if drop by accident.
          - You definitely cannot run Windows 10/11.
          - AND, you cannot compare apple and orange really :), just get what suits your need or affordable to you.

            @webtherapist:

            • Not sure how that differs to the Gram, I'm sure both are equally tough / able to shatter
            • Once Windows 10 ARM build is better you will be able to (this might be a while admittedly)
            • If we're talking about laptops in general, they very much are comparable. If looking at Windows laptops currently, the Gram is great battery wise

            @webtherapist: "You definitely cannot run Windows 10/11."

            Not true

          • @webtherapist:

            You definitely have a shattered M1 if drop by accident.1

            Get a case… But who drops a laptop?

            I don't think this has a touch screen either…

        M1 MacBook Air…

      • +2

        If you think that 50% of the advertised battery time should be measured in stand by go for it. I think it is misleading.

        • -1

          if 13hrs in full brightness video playing aka easily over 10hrs of battery life per charge is not enough for you, you are free to choose others anyway :)

          • +1

            @webtherapist: The amount of hours isn't the point. The point is that it is deceptive advertising.

            If the laptop is in standby, it can't be used.

        • welcome to the world of "up to"

    • +1

      yeah a lot of companies are misleading about battery life and its a shame they have to lie here because this laptop has one of best battery life you can get

    Just did some research on the gram 14. The RAM is not upgradable

    Aborting purchase.

    • +1

      go 16", bigger screen and higher res + 16GB RAM and 512GB storage

      • +3

        Looking for a 14inch and $1988 is way out of my price tag

        Looking for a laptop that is priced around Surface go but upgradable ram and SSD. Similar to a zenbook but priced around $900 - $1000

        • the 14 is not that far $ from a Surfacelaptop but 2256 x 1504

      • I’ve had the 16” before and it quite frankly feels flimsy. Certainly light though.

    • Thanks for the research. unfortunate news. soldered RAM is annoying.

    • Damn, would also get one of these if RAM upgradeable or option for 16GB model, as 14in price, size, weight tick all the other boxes for me.

  • -1

    No touch?!

    • Sounds perfect. I hate it when people leave fingerprints on my screen

  • +2

    That 16" is lighter than my 13" spectre. Damn.

  • +1

    NOTE LG Gram might not be your cup of tea, but to lot of others they definitely do appreciate the military grade durability + WinTel (mainly programs for business) + long battery life. To me the durability is really rare at this price point, check Fujitsu's if you don't agree here :)

    • I mean the military grade testing to me is just a marketing gimmick, especially since their shock test involved "Functional Shock and Transit Drop whilst in packaging".

      I mentioned this in the previous LG gram deal so it's not exactly military grade durability I'm sorry to say

    The gram used to be amazing but now it's just above average for me. Yea it's got a few decent pro's and I like them but I feel they have fallen down the list recently.

    • Why?

  • +2

    If you can wait. The Lenovo Yoga slim 7 Pro Ryzen with MX450 plus oled screen is the better laptop

  • That's cheap for the 14", LPDDR4X is nice but you trade that for upgradable RAM.

  • havent seen a lg laptop for a while- good to see them back a

    I got the 17" 2021 Gram as a work laptop.

    It's been great, got it for just over $2500 and I think it's been solid. Productivity wise it handles everything that I do. At the end of the day I didn't buy it for performance , I got it for its display and portability being such a big display in such a small footprint

    I'm inbetween two sites and walking around with the Gram still boggles my mind with how light it is.

  • Any recommendation for touch screen ones around 1k mark?

    • +1

      if touch screen is a preferred option than go ahead with iPad Pro M1 ;)

      • Why didn't they make MacOS apps compatible with iPad Pro M1 ? :-(
        Maybe in the near future?

  • Damn, I just paid full price $2750 last Friday for the 16'' model at JB Hifi.

    Anyone knows if I can get the $800 difference back?

  • Paid $2000 for the 16" i5/16GB a few months ago and still love it, battery lasts me 12~13hrs on average if I charge it to 100%, although I don't need that long so have it set to charge to 80%.

    My only gripe would be the speaker volume, I need to use an app to boost it to an acceptable level sometimes.

    • How is the keyboard? My main concern is given it's weight, there maybe a lot of deck flex

      • Surprisingly very little 'deck flex' while typing, that said the keyboard is fairly polarising, some whirlpoolers say it feels clunky, but to me and others it's fine.

  • If the 16" had a 5800U I'd be all over it :(
    does anyone know if there are any similar large screen laptops (16/17") that are running the low power chips 5700U/5800U?
    Looking for a large screen with great battery life. Not too concerned about having a dedicated GPU

    • The marketing of this laptop is targeting Evo branding professionals. Regardless if 5800U is a much better CPU.

    This deal looks like it has expired. The price is back to the RRP.
