Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product! Very nice appearance, handy to use and high quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Laptop I use Linux instead of Windows to get my work down. Everything plays nicely. Better actually than Windows. I haven't been able to get USB drives to work with Windows. WIth Linux, no problem. I chose an LG Gram because I have bad feet & need to a light (~ 2.4 pounds, 1-kg) but powerful laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and Fast, and easily upgraded Bought this laptop for my daughter's high school graduation. I went with an LG Gram because it was light, fast, and easily upgradable/fixable (9/10 from iFixit). On receipt, swapped out the 256GB SATA SSD for a 1TB NVMe SSD, and changed the 4GB removable RAM module for a 16GB module. Re-installing Windows 10 was a snap - didn't have to enter the product code to activate, as the installer read it out of the EFI BIOS. Seems to be working very nicely - only complaint is that clicking the touchpad buttons feels a little mushy.
