What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Laptop I bought this laptop for college and while I haven’t used it in a day to day classroom setting, so far I am happy with the laptop. The speakers on the laptop are a bit tinny sounding (I read about that before purchasing the laptop) and the touchpad can be a bit sensitive when scrolling (instead of scrolling up/down it will zoom in/out). Other than that this is a great laptop so far and I have not had any issues!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from so very very close............yet so far Will I recommend my beloved LG gram 13Z970 to everyone I possibly can? Absolutely, I will definitely recommend that they NOT buy one until LG figures out a few small things! I bought the 970 after having my 950 over a year and what did LG do? They made the 970 bigger? What on earth took their magnificent idea of lightness and ease of handling and ruin it by adding a completely unnecessary quarter inch around the outer edge? But thats not all!! The 970 is still LIGHTER, but BIGGER? than the 950? Still, that is not the saddest part of this tragic story!! My 950 has been a joy over and above my other computers that I would have put up against any others, until I discovered the LG gram; but oh my!! .........having letters on the keys of the keyboard is, I believe a fairly important part of a great computer? How can a company not realize that the letters "WEAR OFF" of the keys? [and the tears keep coming; I even called LG to ask what on earth? and they said, sure, they USED to have replacement labels to put on the keyboards [for a very nice price], but they were out of them and were not going to make any more??] But my 950 was out of warranty so they couldnt send me any anyway, yeh, right....... Still, I played dumb, see, my heart was set on the next generation that had a BACKLIT KEYBOARD!!! Yes! a miracle!! The ONLY thing that I needed so I would have the perfect laptop!! And surely, naturally, the letters couldnt possibly wear off of the keys, because, just being backlit would take care of that, small?, problem? BUT NO, I sit here typing on my brand new LG gram 13Z970 with the lights on BECAUSE, I CANT SEE THE LETTERS ON THE BEAUTIFUL WHITE BACKLIT KEYBOARD IN LOW LIGHT!! Sure, there is plenty of light shining out from under the keys, but once again LG forgot, yes, FORGOT, ABOUT NEEDING LETTERS ON THE KEYS OF THE KEYBOARD!! Please somebody tell me this is all just a bad dream!!!? LG? are u there? Im not getting any younger, LG?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, fast, good battery life Just bought this a few weeks ago. Super-light, has a good feel. Getting about 8 hours on the battery, though mostly I leave it plugged in. LG has an optional feature that caps charging at 80% to lengthen battery life.

can I install windows 7 on LG Gram 15Z970

Asked by: AJMAIR
You would need to do a clean install to install Windows 7 over Windows 10 on the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 15Z970-A.AAS7U1. Keep in mind that if you still have warranty on the computer, this might void your warranty. The other thing to keep in mind is that the drivers for Windows 7 are different to the drivers for Windows 10. We recommend you contact Microsoft for advice...^IFV
