What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this laptop I am a Mac lover, and have everything that Apple makes. But when I went to buy a 3rd laptop for photo editing I decided to buy the LG Gram 17 inch, after researching various laptops for weeks. I absolutely LOVE the LG Gram. The screen colors and resolution are great! It's fast, and the finger print recognition instead of a password is wonderful. I am very happy with my choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Light and large, but bad designed Speakers. The laptop is fast and the screen is large. Do only issue is with the speakers. The device has empty spaces around the keyboard and the manifacture could put the speakers there, but unfortunily they decided to put it under the laptop and they are covered easily when someone puts the laptop on their lap or chest or either on a table.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic laptop just needs options I set one up for a client - I really like it - overall I'd recommend it as much as the Samsung 9 15 which is also a great laptop. I'd recommend the LG Gram 17 every time if they offered it with a few options. 1. An option of a full sized keyboard minus the number pad. With the 10 key it is a little cramped. 2. Make it easy to purchase a spare AC adapter - PITA to get one currently. 3. Make the WIFI adapter removable/upgradeable - I hate the soldered on units.
