hmm how accurate are the battery life estimates? seems like quite a gap btwn i5 and i7

the 2019 i7 version says "Long-lasting 72Wh Battery for up to 19. 5 hours* Battery Life (*Mobile mark 2014 standard) "

the 2019 i5 version says "Long-lasting 72Wh Battery for up to 23. 5 hours* Battery Life (*Mobile mark 2014 standard) "

I think the 13" gram at costco for $899 with free 2nd year warranty is probably a better deal. 8GB RAM though, but I've heard that onboard is 8GB so it can be upgraded to 16GB.

Yes. I heard the same that we can't upgrade RAM.

I believe the i7 version will have 8gb of whatever ram you get on board, whereas the i5 version will have 4gb on board.

My wife's 8gb i7 I got her last year has 8gb on board and an open slot. The i5 version with 8gb had 4gb on board and a 4gb chip.

If the Costco one is an i7 with 8gb, then it should be on board with an open slot.

A youtube video I watched said it has a single stick onboard. So you can upgrade it to 16GB with another stick.

A few comments about comparing to Costco LG gram 13. Costco is selling 2018 version with 4GB RAM on board, without thunderbolt 3, older cpu ( i7-8550U vs 8565u), bluetooth 5.0 vs 4.2

https://www.lg.com/us/laptops/lg-13Z980-AAAS6U1
Model 13Z980-A.AAS6U1
System Memory 8GB DDR4 2400MHz - 4 GB x 1 (On Board) - 4 GB x 1

Model 13Z980-AAAS7U1 is 2018 version with 8 GB ram on board
Model 13Z990-AAAxxxx is 2019 version with thunderbolt 3 port, BT 5.0 and 2019 gen cpu

I am looking at 13Z990-AAAS7U1 particularly for a while. Really want to 2019 version with thunderbolt 3. Unfortunately Costco doesn't sell 2019 LG gram.

Costco does sell the LG Gram 2019 for 17" which just came out this year: non-touch with thunderbolt, i7 8565U, 256GB SSD, 16GB RAM, Win 10 $1,150 on sale 8/7.

There are just minor improvements between the 2018 and 2019 models. For deals & warranty, personally I'd stick with costco. Citi Costco gives 4 year warranty. Squaretrade drop & spill (even if mine fault) is only $99 for 3 years.

I got this (also 14Z990 model but i5 version). It had 4GB soldered, and another 4GB installed in the SODIMM slot. Only one slot, so you can upgrade to 12GB or 20GB total. Surprisingly it had two m.2 slots - both support NVME, but the SSD it comes with is SATA. Computer is kind of a pain to open up - you have to remove several rubber feet.

I liked it for the most part - nice screen, incredibly lightweight, full selection of ports. But the computer straight-up died a few weeks in. No crashes or warnings - just blacked out during normal use and then refused to even POST. Thankfully I was within Best Buy's return period.

Defects like this can happen, theoretically, with any manufacturer. But I've owned dozens of laptops over the years and none has failed like this, which makes me wary of getting another LG.

I'm not sure what you are talking about. The one costco is selling is clearly an 8th generation i7, not a 7th generation as you stated.

Thanks for the information.

Sad so many of these break and die.
