What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good laptop but touchpad sucks again I own both the 2016 and the 2017 Gram, and it is a great laptop, but please ditch ELAN as your touchpad manufacturer. That company releases terrible driver updates. The touchpad is getting worse and worse with every update. I don't know who works there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Size and weight is perfect for me. However, except that, other things are poorer than I expected. Sound is too weak, and especially, typing has a serious problem. while I am typing something, I just stops and I need to wait for a while. I guess, LG focused too much on reducing weight, so they don't pay attention that much to the stable functionality and other features. Furthermore, I requested repair for the typing problem using online request, but there is no reply and contact. I am very disappointed by the product and service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Touchscreen Notebook My wife and I bought this to replace two aging notebooks and we are so glad we did. It is light, fast - what more could you want?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Favorite ever, except for lack of pen I go through laptops, phones, tablets very quickly - usually until I find the perfect one. This is almost the perfect one: excellent battery life (lasts all day at work and into the night); so amazingly lightweight that I can walk around with it to type anywhere when taking notes; LOVE the thin bezels and the 14" screen; very fast even using Illustrator and InDesign; backlit keyboard is great and the keys have just enough travel(maybe just a tad below). The only thing I truly miss and will probably have to move on soon is the lack of a pen and digitized screen along with a 360 degree 2in1 design. I love using a pen on MS OneNote and marking up pdfs. With Windows 10 new inking ability, I miss the pen so much. Not enough to yet abandon the 14" screen, the great battery and the lightweight, but other laptops will come out with the same 14", great battery and thin bezels - maybe not the lightweight which is what keeps me with this for now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I hoped for and more Bought my LG Gram 15 three weeks ago and am super impressed. I am a CEO and carry my laptop everywhere and with this one, it is easy to do. Full manuals for download were helpful. Did the set-up myself and loaded Office seamlessly. No crashes or freezes. Super lightweight. The video of them dropping the laptop was helpful. The machine doesn't seem flimsy to me. Battery life is good, but I haven't tried it for 17.5 hours. Screen is easy to see and not a problem as I read in some of the reviews. Those comments seem like laptop envy, now that I have my LG Gram 15. Numeric keypad is slightly smaller but I have already gotten used to it, and can enter accurately for spreadsheet. Would definitely buy again. Pricing was important because technology becomes dated so quickly. Thanks LG for a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best laptop since Sony stopped making Viao I run my business from my laptop, and upgrade with each new product cycle to a top-end laptop. I was devastated when Sony went out of the laptop business, and tried a couple of other brands as replacements, but nothing measured up. Then a friend put me on the LG. It is at least as good as the Viao was. After a month of using it, I couldn't be happier.

Can I get the LG Gram with 16 mg of ram and with Windows 10 Pro as well?

Asked by: Jeffrey Scott
The LG gram 14” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 14Z970-A.AAS7U1 comes with Windows 10 Home (64 bit), but you can pay for an upgrade from within Windows 10 to upgrade from Home to Pro. You can buy the upgrade right from the Windows Store, like you’d buy an app, music, or a movie. After you do, Windows 10 will be automatically upgraded to the Professional edition and the Professional-only features will be enabled.

am i going to be able to remap the keyboard? if not will there be an nordic versoin?

Asked by: Andii
Well, that can always be done in the Windows settings, time & language, i believe it is that. In the languages part, add a language and then windows key + spacebar will change between different layouts, if they're the same shaped. I myself have a physical US-layout keyboard but change to estonian mapping and back instantly constantly. If you want to also change visually the keys, you have to buy nordic key stickers from any shop.

it will ever be sold in Italy?

Asked by: frederic
Unfortunately NOT the US version, but the Spanish version just came it on Amazon Italia. There are 2majiir drawbacks: First, the Spanish version comes ONLY with 8Gb ram and 256 Gb SSD (as far as I know you lose guarantee as soon as you upgrade it yourself), and second the keyboard layout is Spanish. The price is more or less the same, which is white unfair considering you get half the ram and storage. But that is LG politics....
