    Perfect laptop for moder user with demand.
    I don't play games and I can hardly imagine how to overload it.
    When travelling I use minimal brightness (still fine) and lowest power setting.
    15-18 hours of real use, means two full days on battery.
    NEver ever got that from any laptop.
    Screen is very good for what I use it for.
    And its lightweight is from other world.
    This is absolutely the best choice in the end of 2021 for real users (not pro gamers of coure).
    Kudos to LG, I switcehd from 3500 $ LEnovo Carbon X1 at half price and find it right decision.

    The 10th gen CPU version had keys that felt "crunchy" when typing. I'm sensitive so I noticed it on my finger joints. Has this been improved?

    Hi, do you have any long-term updates on the LG Gram durability?

    Is the flex on the keyboard prone to cause serious issues?

    I really want a very lightweight laptop with large 16" screen, long battery and a numerical keypad.

    The LG Gram is the only one that fulfills all those, as the Huawei Matebook 16 is somewhat heavier. I wonder how the performance of a Matebook D16 (i7 12700H) fares against the LG Gram 16Z90Q with i7-1260P?

    The only dealbreaker for me is that in both these laptops the RAM is not upgradeable and 32GB is the bare minimum I can deal with for a laptop to become my main work machine.

      I don't, I haven't used the laptop long term.

      The flex should be fine, it's only a slight inconvenience that you'll get used to.

      I haven't tested the matebook. The gram is lighter though and has a bigger battery. There's also the new Acer Swift Edge to consider, with AMD hardware and an even smaller battery. I'll have reviews for the new Gram (17, and later on the 16) and the new Swift Edge in the next couple of days.

    Any plans to cover the 2022 version of the laptop….besides an upgrade to the 12th gen Intel chipset (which of course affect performance, battery life, etc) they've also changed a few other major components of the laptop (e.g., new matte display, etc.). I think these are significant enough change to warrant a new review or at least one with updates on the things that did change. The good news is that not everything changed and you should be able to leverage some of your previous years review.

      Yes. Working on the Gram 17 right now, and I should then cover the Gram 16 and update this article. Hopefully in the next few weeks.
