Ive read alot about this laptop, still dont know if i want to pull the trigger

Some cons that have kept me from purchasing:
- Trackpad has issues registering clicks, this is a known issue all over the web
- Speakers are super quiet and on the bottom of the laptop
- SSD is slower than some Macbook models from 5 years ago, necessitating at least $100 SSD replacement which would then need to be uninstalled if an issue arises with the laptop
- Glossy screen

Other than those aforementioned cons, this laptop is pretty great, just wanted to give those on the fence some things to consider

And for those with an older Macbook/Macbook Air who are sick of waiting on Apple to fix their keyboards something to think about: This laptop weighs about the same as the older design of the Macbook Air (2013-2017) except the Air is 13" and this is 17" to give you an idea of how light it really is

that's a pretty dumb comment. under 3lb 17" laptop with a super long battery life and you want to complain that it's not a gaming laptop? Yes you can buy a gaming laptop, but believe it or not, not all laptops are for gaming. Dedicated gpu's also are power drains and heat up laptops. There's pros and cons to every device. Just because this device doesn't meet your needs, doesn't mean it doesn't work well for a ton of other people.

I really tried to like this laptop, but returned it after trying it out for a month.

The glossy screen is borderline unusable in many environments. The downfiring speakers are absolutely terrible. The keyboard and touchpad are average at best. And lastly the SATA SSD is substandard at this price point.

Picked one up last week for around $1400 out the door. Such an incredible laptop. Love the 16:10 screen.

Just picked up a 2TB Sabrent NVME ssd for $240+ tax. Will install tonight and install a fresh copy of Win 10 Pro.

Just pulled the trigger. I've been waiting for a good deal on this laptop. Amazon had the 512GB model for $1550 a couple of weeks ago, but this is a much better deal. The SSD is junk since it is only a SATA M.2, but I went ahead and ordered a 1TB Intel 660p from newegg for $88 that I will put in this (has two slots so I should be able to keep the old 250GB SATA drive for extra storage).

Thank you!

I am a *big* touchscreen fan, but feel the utility starts to drop off once screen sizes exceed 14".

Not sure it is such a loss once you get to 17"

What does screen size has to do with touchscreen? I like touchscreens because sometimes any trackpads can be a pain to scroll.

I bought this yesterday for $1289 delivered though Google Express using coupon code JUNESAVE19 for $20 off. If you click through the giving assistant portal you can get 4% cash back.

I'll install the Samsung 970 EVO NVME drive ($97 from Fry's) in the second slot and upgrade to WIN 10 Pro. It should be a decent travel companion for ~$1200 after cash back.

fyi: if you have a cat that like to sit often on warm laptop, lg gram may not be a good fit. Occasional drop from bed, table or stairs is ok.

Very interesting laptop. For me, the 15" version is the sweet spot. Unfortunately that is not on sale. I'll keep waiting
