If the back cover is opened by the consumer for any reason (upgrade or replace a part) LG voids the warranty. Confirmed by 2 CSRs. Just an FYI!

Picked one up from Costco last night with the intention of price adjusting when the sale starts next week.
How are you planning to price adjust? If anything left in stock you just buy, and if they have none in stock, nothing to price adjust against. Or I guess you can make it "in stock" Smilie if they don't "comply". Just curious of the easiest and reliable way to do it. Thanks!

This was $850 during Thanksgiving. I would have expected prices to fall, $899 is more than TG price 10 months after.

RAM & SSD prices also came down, no reason for this to still be 899.

Are you sure it was the 17" one for $899?

The Gram 17 is a 2019 model, it wasn't even available last Thanksgiving. I believe they are referring to the Gram 13 (2018 model), which is currently $899 at Costco.

You can add external graphic card via the thunderbolt port.

FYI

From a YouTube:

Hi Lisa Gade. I'm a big fan of your videos and purchased a number of laptops over the years based on your very well done reviews. The same thing ended up happening with the LG Gram 17. Unfortunately I have to disagree with a few points you made about this laptop. At 6:32 you state you had no problems with thermal throttling on this machine and that seems utterly impossible as this machine throttles after a few seconds of heavy load with the CPU reaching 90 degree celsius before the fan even kicks in. The tiny fan cannot handle the 15 W produces by the CPU and thermal throttling is a huge issue on the machine. Which is disappointing considering there would be so much space in the chassis for a better thermal solution. I find it surprising you didn't see that in your test. Running any stress test and looking at the cpu temps/freqs immediately reveals the issue. Maybe you could do such things in future tests instead of just stating "we didn't see thermal throttling" - making it seem like you just didn't look for it. Also speakers are definitely lacking a lot of bass and sound like cardboard. Other than that it's a great machine.

Interesting. I'll run a test myself and report back ASAP.

Pulled the trigger on this. Needed a high spec windows laptop for work. So far so good, installing my development tools to see how it's holding up
