I upgrade my laptops every 3 years, experience with Dell, Sony, Lenovo. The LG Gram has been by far the most enjoyable laptop I've owned.
Bought the my first one in early 2019.
Bought one for my partner in early 2020.
Going to buy a new one for me early next year.
I's a 17" High Res screen, in a 15" body.
It weighs in at 2.95 lbs.
The boot time from pressing the on button (with built in fingerprint reader) is 13 seconds. That blows me away.
It's fast enough, it has 16G of memory and a 512 M2 drive.
It's easy to service and there's a 2nd M2 spot.
Battery life was stellar, for the first year, never carried a charger and lasted over 10 hours.
Year 2.5, it gets 8hrs +/- which is still fine.
It isn't a gaming PC, though we play fortnite on it all the time.
The case is some type of nano fiber that's supposed to be metal but feels like plastic.
The 16G memory is shared.
-One thing I don't like is the touchpad is placed in the middle of the laptop and not in the middle of the space bar. So when cranking on it, it highlights a random section and I delete the text. Moving to a wireless mouse and turning off the touchpad resolved this.
You should buy it from an outlet like Costco, assuming there is one by you. They double the warranty from 1 year to 2. If you use the Costco credit card, it goes from 2 to 4.
