What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Gram! I bought the LG Gram January 2019 and it's the best new-computer experience I've ever had. Zero learning curve. It's light, fast and sooo long-lasting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice big screen so far, so good. i really like the screen size for a laptop. also, images seem clear, colorful, etc. i really like longer battery life than i'm used to on a laptop it seems pretty fast, except when windows is updating. it's very light. perhaps something that might reduce it to 4 stars (I don't know if it's the computer or me) is when i'm typing if often get sent to somewhere else. i have not yet determined if i touch another area (the touchpad, or a wrong key, etc.) inadvertently so can not blame lg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from documentation & specifications need details Nice, quiet & lightweight. Please have the executives, product manager, technical writers, & web developers coordinate to correct and expand the documentation details. For example, an outstanding feature is that this laptop has not one, but two M.2 slots. The existance of these "dual M.2 slots" are omitted in the specifications and basically stumbled over in the description. Another blaring omission is the type of M.2 slots and particularly the type of memory that should be used. Does it support NVMe? Similarly, there is sparse information regarding cpu memory upgrades. How much is soldered to the motherboard? How much is in the single socket? Presuming, 4MB soldered, what is the maximum memory that can be added to the single socket? Can one add 16MB for a total of 20MB? If 16MB is the total max, can one add 16MB to achieve the 16MB max limit (leaving 4MB unused), since a 12MB memory module is rare if non-existent. Will you send me new rubber feet as those are no longer sticky after pulling them off to access the upgrades? Thx for the details!

Average battery of the model based on Mobile Mark 2014 is up to 18 hours. However it still depends on the running programs on your computer, for example rendering high resolution videos will most likely require more power consumption. ^AC
