Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect laptop I've had mine for awhile. It's fast, the screen is great and it weighs next to nothing. Really all you could possibly ask for in a portable computer or even a desktop. Mine has traveled a lot and it is very durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what really expected it to do. Absolutely great, specially on two things: weight and battery life. I'm used to ipads, MBAs, and macs in general. It is lighter than even the 11" Airs, ipads with Bluetooth keyboards. Yes, you do get over 16 hours, of course I only had music playing while typing with email and a few other things in the background. Amazing!!! Works for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great! Really good screen, fast, laods quickly I am not sure why this lightweight laptop computer has had less than glowing reviews. There is some that talk of the lid (screen) flexing - well on a laptop this thin, I expect some flexing. I have tried one that when you press on back it shows through on screen. If you want a cast iron laptop, please buy one. Screen and color on this are good. I find the 2 level backlit key board easy to see, and comfortable to use. Trackpad works well, and have had no issues with scrolling, clicking etc. Load times are great. Battery life is excellent. I compared this against another brand "gaming" laptop with similar processor, ram, AND with addition of a 4 GB dedicated graphics card - and was surprised to find load time, boot time, and program accessing time, all to be faster on the LG Gram. I also have run some older - but still graphic intensive games - on the Gram, and it has performed flawlessly. And, it is remakable how light weight this computer really is. Despite the light weight, I find it to be a great performing laptop with great screen, light, easily portable, with great battery life. I do think it is a bit pricey - along with many laptops today - but seems to give good value in this price range of computers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best laptop of my life (i had more than 10...) It's not the cheapest but there is no lighter laptop with such a large screen that will provide you so much power. It is pricy but it delivers quality: Reliable, fast and well designed with great keyboard and connectivity. Awesome for advanced users or a programmer like me. It makes the Apple laptops look obsolete... Use it and see by yourself. Before buying it, I owned and tried almost all the different brands with various success. My next laptop will also be a LG Gram. It is great for traveller and people who needs significant power and battery life in a super light device: 2.4 LBS or 1 Kilogram. You can't beat that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Beyond Expectations Was curious, it was returnable, but love it and kept it. Weight is remarkable, solid, not a blemish through 7+ months of constant travel, beautiful screen color, perfect touch response, track pad, microphone, finger reader. Rarely use the mouse with it. Much faster than expected. Battery lasts all day at a normal brightness. Rarely worry about it any more. Runs cool even under load. LG software is unobtrusive and seems very well done. I wanted a top line travel laptop or tablet. Preferred laptop form factor. Cost was not an issue, but after working with this model for a month, there was nothing to criticize or upgrade for.

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.
