What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2 years on from buying and stil going strong I bought this 15.6" and full keyboard unit soon after it was launched and have carted it around over many flights and trips. I was concerned at first that being his light it may not hold up physically. I can say that it has held up well. I replaced the supplied charger with a USB-c charger (multi-voltage type that charges my phone and tablet) and that this works better than the supplied unit for my needs. The performance of the unit is absolutely fine for my needs which is mainly business and a few photos and browsing and I watch movies on it. All good for me. This is my 9th laptop in 20 years and without doubt, the best I have had as weight is a big consideration for me BUT I just didn't like a 13.3-inch unit which did not suit my needs. I will buy another when / if this unit gives up - I usually expect 3 years from a laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, cool, quiet, big, fast 15Z970 If you are tired of cradling a hot noisy brick in your lap, then you are probably ready to consider switching to a silent, cool piece of balsa wood. There is actually a setting to not use the fan, with an alert that performance may be diminished. Bring it on. After using this for a little over two weeks, I still grimace, expecting the heat and noise to somehow return. But they haven’t. There is also a 15” touchscreen, backlit keyboard, and surprisingly, a numeric keypad. And since the whole package weights under two and half pounds, it rests comfortably in the lap, and is easily lifted by one hand. There is an indicator light for caps lock, but not one for numlock. I recall the online reviews that measure increments of speed and screen brightness, and glad that I ignored them (do you really work in direct sunlight?). The brightness and screen reflectivity are visually (to my eyes) comparable to other laptops on the market. I do not use the sleep setting, only hibernate. It takes about ten seconds to go from hibernate to desktop. Other important things to note: The speakers are intended for intimate use. The factory setting is low volume to protect the hearing of the innocent. You have to ferret out the places where volume is controlled in order to make maximum use of the speakers. I find them adequate. The power plug is small and needs to be firmly pushed into the socket on the laptop (one online reviewer missed this). The trackpad. Oh dear. The secret to the trackpad is to feel your frustration and then spend at least five hours tweaking the Elan driver, and the Windows 10 mouse settings. Many of the settings compete with other settings, so seriously, you have to experiment relentlessly and boldly to exploit the possibilities. Here are a few things I learned. Ninety-nine percent of the time, you do not have to even go near a mechanical click, rather, a finger tap is sufficient. There are multiple settings to achieve the same effect, applying to, for example, the scrolling of long web pages and documents efficiently. Another issue concerns the off center location of the trackpad in relation to the keyboard. The trackpad is located to the left of the center of the laptop, but to the right of center in relation to the alpha keyboard. Hence, your right thumb pad will have a tendency to drag on the trackpad. There is a setting to mitigate this, and you have to find the one that works for you. Some reviews have referred to the trackpad being too sensitive or not sensitive enough. This indicates that the user did not spend adequate time with the driver settings. Personally, I find the large trackpads that are the rage now to be ergonomically a mistake. Trackpads should be small and efficient. And really, they should be centered to the alpha keyboard, regardless of the esthetics. Further, considering the light weight of this laptop, the trackpad should require light clicking, rather than the more robust clicking required by this trackpad. Similarly, reviews have critiqued the feel of the keyboard. My experience here is that over time you will adjust to the new environment. I did not find it ideal to start with, but I have been a touch typist for about sixty years and the keyboard is perfectly adequate, and something that can be adjusted to as needed. There are other nice touches. Drivers are automatically found and offered for installation. The screen brightness defaults to the middle level with turning on. This means, that if you are restoring a screen outdoors that was last used indoors, you will be able to see it. The computer functions that are controlled by the function key can be used as ‘hotkeys’ by changing a setting so that you don’t have to simultaneously press the function key. So far, LG has been very responsive in answering my questions, by both email and phone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Wonderfully lightweight, fast, good resolution. Easy to use. Too bad Windows 10 is not! Top is a bit flimsy but I'll take that for the lighter weight. Was looking for a very lightweight laptop for travel as I had a bad back. This fits the bill perfectly. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Audio driver not configure correctly After latest update. Now my laptop do not have sound output from its speakers. Device Manager shows unrecognized Audio Device. Update driver does not help with either automatic or scan the hard drive. LG Update Center shows everything is up-to-date. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome weight This is a great low weight laptop, however you give up some things, the power connector barely stays connected at all. and keyboard is subpar. But for a 15 inch screen it is far and away the lightest you will find. Some will happily live with these downfalls to have such lightweight with large screensize. These issues do not look to be that hard to improve, maybe over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value and underrated in reviews I bought this for an ultralight computer and recieved a quick, powerful and long lasting device for my needs. I surf the Web, watch videos and use it for research on my motorcycle hobby. It's construction, fit and finish are also excellent. It's software,Windows 10 and LG, all work very well. I am totally satisfied. Not one nitpick! I actually came across this by chance when I noticed a picture of someone balancing one on three fingers, while looking for a 13 inch laptop. Glad I clicked on that ad.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from keyboard problem The reason that I bought this laptop because it is light. I really like this laptop because it is so light to carry around. The weight is incomparable with other brands with the same screen size of 13 inches. However, your keyboard is not well designed. it is too flat and not smooth to type. It is junky too. The size is bigger than the regular laptop keyboard. It is hard to do fast typing. Hope you will continue improving and give customers a trade-in opportunity when you have a upgrade for this model.

I would like to know if this 13Z970-U.AAW5U1 & these 13ZD970-GX50K 13ZD970-GX55K Which one is the comparable same model? I would like to know if we can upgrade the ram for 13Z970-U.AAW5U1

Asked by: PearlGates
The LG gram 13.3” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop, Model # 13ZD970-GX50K and Model # 13ZD970-GX55K are models that were not released in the U.S. so you would need to contact the LG Support enter in the countries in which those models were released to get information on them. The models that were released in the U.S. were Model # 13Z970-U.AAW5U1 and Model # 13Z970-A.AAS5U1. The difference between those models is that Model # 13Z970-A.AAS5U1 is a Dark Silver color, has a touchscreen LCD, and has a Fingerprint ID...^IFV
