What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from light weight but feel like ebook Price wise, this should be top class but looks cheap and slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lightweight Computer with Good Battery Life The computer is lightweight. It can be carried in a backpack without realizing you are carrying it. The battery life is great as well. When I was shopping for a computer, I was specifically looking for a 15" with a numeric keypad, because I type a lot of numbers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for Productivity, Traveling or Otherwise This is the second LG Gram 15 Laptop I have purchased within a year for my company. Anytime I have a request for an extremely light and portable for working / productivity while traveling (by plane, etc.), the Gram is what I purchase. It has a very snappy processor with the i7 (2c/4t), ample storage on the lightening-quick SSD, and wonderful display. It is easy to adapt to the slightly low-travel keys and keyboard lay-out (which everyone has liked, so far). Bloat-ware is minimal, and the LG software that is pre-installed is VERY useful for this particular laptop. The trackpad is very responsive. Overall, this is a wonderful laptop that can keep up with any tasks you might need to conduct while away from your office, and is even better for after-work media consumption with its excellent display and decent-sounding speakers. One of my favorite laptops, at this time. It always runs cool and quiet (the fans are barely audible). And it is so light, it can sit anywhere while you Netflix and Chill -- resting it on your abdomen or chest while reclining on the bed is very comfortable and gives alternative ways to watch in otherwise desolate hotel rooms. Destruction tests on youtube show it can definitely survive a lot of trauma, but I find I like it so much it gets a little extra respect to keep it nice when being placed in a travel-bag, etc. Although a little on the pricey side, it is worth every penny for its speed, productivity, long battery life, and ultra-portability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Performer & Traveler I travel extensively worldwide as a generator instructor and could not be happier with my Gram! Teaching, hooked up to a generator, or just doing endless paperwork this laptop is proving to be everything I had hoped for plus incredible battery life. Thanks LG, I'm pleased and impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great lightweight laptop Screen simply died after 4 months, LG would not warranty it because they said screen had a crack. There was no crack and no trauma to laptop when we mailed them the laptop in their own packaging material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i couldn't believe that a laptop could be this light. Not that good for gaming, but very useful when carrying around, or using it at schools. Highly recommended for students who carry around heavy bags.

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.

Can I remove the back plate to install another hard drive?

Asked by: BrianNG
I did it on the 13 inch version. Just make sure to remove every screw. I almost forced my back plate apart causing a very minor bend. Once all screws are removed it's comes right off with minimal force.
