What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Battery and Charging has a lot of problem The battery one day decided to not work properly anymore, so sometimes the laptop thinks it doesn't have a battery and turns off immediately. After a week it got worse and now most of the time, it shows the laptop does not have a battery connected to it (even though it does) So I started to use it always plugged in, and now the charger has a problem too which sometimes the laptop does not know that its plugged in. Almost a nonfunctional laptop. Can't believe it, I paid this much and this is what I got.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mainboard problem when I buy then repair When I bought this laptop as new ( not refurbished ), It has a problem for The extended Monitor. I checked the reviews and feedbacks. It was a common problem. Then I sent to repair to LG . Now it is about one month , I have been still waiting for my laptop they will repair. I contacted the repair service. They told me that they got it 10 days ago. ( Alabama facility to California ).. And The repai service says that they are wiating for the part. ( Mainboard. Do you believe in New Laptop has a Main board problem. This means they sell all refurbished as new one ). Terrible Customer service and Nobody is responbible. Just answering you copy-pasting comments. LG is big disappointed.. If you are a buyer of any LG ,,, Be aware of you .

What is Carbon nanotube-reinforced Magnesium Alloy? Is it plastic or aluminum?

Asked by: Waqara
The design of lightweight vehicles and aircraft is considered one of the most effective strategies for improving fuel efficiency and reducing anthropogenic climate change. As a result, this area of research has attracted an increasing amount of attention in recent years. Moreover, the compelling need for lightweight materials is driving the development and motivating a wider spread application of magnesium (Mg) alloys, the ultra-lightweight materials with low density, a high strength-to-weight ratio, and superior damping capacity. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have been considered an ideal reinforcement for metal matrix composites due to their excellent mechanical and physical properties. The incorporation of a small amount of CNTs into the Magnesium matrix to form nanocomposites can significantly enhance mechanical properties. These lightweight nanocomposites with good mechanical properties have huge potential in the aerospace, automobile, and transportation industries...^IFV

Dear LG team, will there be a version of this 15.6 laptop with PCie NVME SSDs? SATA SSDs you currently use in the LG gram are 3 times slower than NVME. You just advertized the 17 version with 2x512 NVME drives. Will an 15.6 NVME version come out, +when?

Asked by: BenjaminH
Although we list the hard drive for the LG gram 15.6'' Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop w/ Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Thunderbolt™ 3, Model # 15Z990-R.AAS9U1 as an M.2 2280 SSD with a SATA3 interface, the M.2 is designed to use either legacy SATA mode or the newer PCIe modes but the drive will pick which one to use. The laptop has two M.2 slots in it with one labeled as MVMe x 4 and the other as NVMe x 2 so you can install PCIe NVMe SSDs. Regrettably, we currently do not have any information about if there are any plans to release a 15.6 version that comes with PCIe NVMe SSDs installed...^IFV
