What people are saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good core features but weak peripherals Two important weaknesses: 1) there are no dedicated home, end, pgup, pgdown keys. I have to press first the NumLk to disable the numerical keys - this is really frustrating.The Fn+cursor keys should do the work here. 2) Speakers are medieval. My left speaker is barely there.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unreliable I bought the LG Gram because of the lightness and long battery life.Very happy with its performance, BUT........ About 1 month after I bought it it suddenly shut down and couldn't get it powered on again. I sent it to the repair center and got it back in about 3 weeks. All my data was gone and had to start all over as if it was a new computer. About 2 months ago it started shutting down unexpectedly. I can start it right up again, but then it does it again, sometimes multiple times per hour. So I got another repair ticket and sent it back on May 10. No communication from the LG repair acknowledging receipt or turnaround estimate. I know it was delivered to them from Fed Ex tracking. I think I bought an unreliable "lemon"

I have the LG Gram Model # 17Z990-R.AAS8U1. Will I be able to install Windows 11 which I believe has a TPM requirement?

Asked by: TonyFox
The LG gram 17” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor - COSTCO EXCLUSIVE, Model # 17Z990-R.AAS7U1 does not have a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) module. The TPM is really included only included on laptops that are targeted for the enterprise market but it can be added for about $10 ~ $20. Microsoft has updated the webpage for Windows 11 requirements, saying that PCs will be required to have a TPM 2.0 chip to install the new operating system...^IFV

Is the notebook usable for video editing, e.g. Davinci Resolve or Edius 8?

Asked by: gocam
The LG gram 17” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 17Z990-R.AAS8U1 has an integrated Intel® UHD Graphics 620 video card. The Intel HD graphics series were never really meant for video editing or for gaming. It is only meant for light office work applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc. Video editing is both CPU and GPU-intensive. Having good RAM and VRAM makes the video editing software work. It will certainly work, although when rendering long videos, or if trying to work with animation, you're going to find yourself wishing for a more powerful machine...^IFV

I have a LG Gram 17 - I want to get a new one and duplicate my system etc onto the new one - can I create a clone of my HD onto an SDHC card (both same size) and then use the SDHC card as a bootable drive to put the cloned system on the new computer

Asked by: MLWStudios
If you are restoring to a smaller hard disk or SSD, cloning will be the recommended option. There is an alternative in system imaging and cloning. Windows 10 includes a built-in option called System Image, which lets you create a complete replica of your installation along with partitions. To back up your installation, you will need a USB external hard disk to store the image which is the recommended buy. System Image in Windows 10 and earlier versions of Windows doesn’t support restoring to partition layouts smaller in size than the drive it’s replacing. For instance, if you go from a 500 GB hard disk to a 256 GB SSD when you attempt to restore the system image created from the 500 GB disk, you will receive an error indicating the disk is too small. If this is the case for you, then system imaging is of no use; instead, you should consider cloning. If you opt to clone the hard disc drive, you will need to connect the target hard disk or SSD to your computer where you would like to clone your Windows 10 installation. This can be done multiple ways; you can install the storage device as a local disk; or install it in a USB external enclosure, then attach it to your computer. After settling on a method of attaching the target disk, launch the backup you are using and click the Clone tab. You will need to follow the directions for the backup tool you intend to use to see if you can use an SDHC card as an alternative storage device.
