It was last time around.

I bought this online to get Aeroplan points since it was the same price but UPS shipping, ugh.

I gave this to my wife and got the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 7 instead. While I love the LG, what I found I don't like about having a numeric keypad is the off centre typing. Also the trackpad, while it's pretty good, is positioned right in the middle. The material is very light and plastic feeling but it is a soft metal which I really like BUT it scratches real easy. Otherwise, great laptop if you really want the screen real estate but it just ended up being a bit too big and awkward for me. At least my wife is happy.

Thanks OP. Missed out on this when it was on sale before (same price). I just received the $1099 Ryzen 4700 HP 15.6, but think it’s a little on the heavy side and don’t need a touchscreen, pen, and it really needs more RAM than 8gb

Yes I went in the store and it is on sale for the same price. The display is superrrr thinnnn and the whole build feels super cheap. Did not buy it feels like a $500 laptop not a almost 1.5k laptop. I get they wanted to make it light but it feels like a toy. Could have used some metal or aluminum to make it sturdier.

Yeah I agree. I think this is a good laptop for a very specific use case (someone who requires a 17" laptop but wants the absolute thinnest/lightest with that option).

The flex in the body and screen is pretty dramatic on this laptop.

Is there something else that is 15.6-17", under 3.5-4lbs with a superior build quality?

That’s what I mean. If you need something like this, it’s a great deal. Once I tried it in person you realize it’s kind of a one trick pony, and you might want to consider something slightly thicker and heavier for a more solid build.

Thanks OP
I was disappointed I missed the last LG gram sale (it sold out when I finally decided to try it) and now with the additional 4.5% if paying with my new costco mastercard, this is even better :) I figured, I can return it if I change my mind with Costco's great return policy.

I'm not sure honestly what I want in a laptop b/c I seem to want powerful gaming rig that has incredible battery life and is ultrabook format and yet large screen with Numpad on keyboard to make work easier... lol, are you seeing my paradoxical specs list???!!!

So realistically, for work based portable computer with the benefits of large screen (LG screens usually good and 369 nits pretty bright and higher than usual resolution) and nice keyboard/pad layout for work and long battery life, it will meet my needs. Sure, not gaming or very powerful if I want multimedia processing, but i guess i'll have to live with this since most of my time on laptop is work anyway... i'll game on my ALienware desktop when I do get the time. I have to just let the dream of gaming while vacationing be a dream b/c it really is just a dream at this time with COVID practically not making travel worth considering... and i guess i can live with not gaming if i do get back to going on vacation since hey, i'm on vacation, and I should be doing something different than staring at a screen that I can do at home (i'll be staring at screen working on vacation anyway i'm sure, sigh...).

Thanks again OP.

Been looking for a laptop which has good performance for work productivity—no gaming, crypto mining or graphics work. Just one with a nice screen (would not use touchscreen at all) and good performance. However my concern is that it’s an i5 and that I should just hold out until back to school for something with a Ryzen in it. Also doesn’t have USB-C which would be nice for a little future proofing (as much as one can with computers).

Don’t really need much space on an SSD and 16GB of RAM should be plenty to handle large spreadsheets.

Advice appreciated.

no USB-C ?

It has a Thunderbolt 3 port. Not the same or not compatible to USB-C?

https://www.lg.com/ca_en/laptops/lg-17Z90N-VAA72A8

Thunderbolt™ 3
Charge, Transfer and Display with One Port
Thunderbolt™ port allows up to 5k display, data transfer with speed up to 40Gb/s bandwidth and charging connected device without a separate power cable all at the same time over a single cable.

Ports and Connections

HDMI (Standard) Yes
USB 3.1 Type-C Yes
USB 3.1 Yes (3)
UFS/Micro-SD Yes
Headphone Out Yes
RJ45 Ethernet Yes (USB-C port with RJ45 gender)
DC-In Yes


This might work for me. I need a new laptop for work travel - documents, email, and browsing; no gaming - that is light and occasionally may be used to post process images. Might be a a bit big to stuff under the seat on an aircraft though. It has to be faster than my current 2014 vintage 8G i7-4700U

Depending on which review you read the screen gamut coverage is pretty good - about 95 to 99%.
