Let me try to save some of you time, i am talking about the ones that got your fingers on your keyboard and ready to complain:
- it's only i5
- it's too big
- it's not 4k
- it's 2020, laptops should be paper thin and 12" or $299
- it has no USB C
- it feels flimsy
- it doesn't have dedicated graphics
- it only has 512GB SSD and my grandma's computer has a 1TB HDD
- I've owned a LG fridge/TV/Phone before and it sucks, so I am not buying a laptop from them
- It's too expensive, I'll wait until second wave of covid and they will beg us to take it

I don't know what else I missed.

This is an awesome laptop for those that are looking for a workhorse of this size. From the old thread, this sums it up nicely:

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%.

.
Thunderbolt 3 uses the same connector as usb c but at a much higher bandwidth and power. So you can definitely plug in regular usb device as well.

Same feeling here. Plus the keystroke is too shallow. It's a big turnoff to me

Huh?
Proven Durability
The full metal body made from magnesium alloy used as aircraft material is lightweight and super-strong. Its durability is clarified by passing the demanding MIL-STD-810G military standard of durability and reliability that checks seven factors from shock and dust to extreme temperatures.

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.
I've been running an older i5 on my laptop, I use a lot of VM's and simulating routers. The i5 is very capable, the only bottle neck I've had is the 8gb of ram my laptop currently has.

To each their own poision, it's a great laptop on paper. But complainers just wish it was sturdier.

Anyone saying "but mah ryzen" is just a fan boy.

Whether it flexes or not or feels like plastic I don’t know, just pointing out it’s made of metal

If any body bought one and is not pleased with it, let me know. Instead of returning it, I can buy it for the same price that you paid.

Just received my package... opened it up... and it's a LG gram 15, not 17! What a bummer. Got it sorted out with Costco over the phone, but have to do a complex return, purchase, price match to original price process... and the computer is coming from a different depot, so instead of 3 days, probably will take longer.

I ordered i7, 17 inch version. Surprise gift for wife. Lets see. I know ryzen is all the hype but i7 will be plenty enough for her use and toich screen will be just fingerprint magnet and i think bigger screen size will be better for productivity and no need to hook it up to a monitor if using smaller screen laptop at home.

Picked up the laptop, price was over budget at 1,699+tax for i7 unit but laptop is amazing.
Played with it and its super light and fan noise is quiet and 16:10 ratio makes screen look bigger.

Little size comparison with laptop from 2007 (still works btw) its a 15.6 inch laptop but some how 17 inch lg looks and feels smaller. Overall wife is happy with the gift :)

I owned this laptop. The screen was amazing and 2K resolution was perfect, it truly was very light and portable. While the body wasn’t as rigid as aluminum, it was fine for my taste. Battery life was outstanding. Keyboard and speakers were fine, nothing too special.

I did unfortunately end up returning it as the CPU wasn’t fast enough for my workflow. This i5 in the LG is only running at 15W... perfectly fine for office apps and surfing but was a challenge for me in some tasks (Eg Live encoding video). I ended up getting a laptop with an H-series processor.

Bottom line, this LG while big performs like a ultrabook thats been enlarged, not a full size laptop. If it wasn’t for my specific needs, I’d still own it and do recommend it.
