    I think this year's Gram is pretty much peak ultra portable laptop. USB-C ftw

      I have to agree with you, regarding the upgraded Gram. decent speakers would be very nice and more aggressive cooling too. I have a 2020 17 and think it's the bee's knees. Like you, the lack of mass is a surprise most times I pick it up. The form factor is also just small enough to fit my camera backpack which is another bonus. I've set mine to charge through the USB-C port and bought a Baseus powered USB hub which also allows me to read SD cards. (I'm in Australia and imported mine from the USA. Our plug is different but replacing the cable fixed that, although the micro-SD card reader remained an issue until I found the hub.) With a great screen and adequate processing power for most tasks, there's many upsides to this machine.

      I have a 2019 model and love it, this would have been the perfect upgrade until I saw they removed the RAM slot, 16 just isn't enough formy use case :(

    LG Grams have arrived in Australia.The 16 inch keyboard felt oddly crunchy to me. As a writer, I can imagine it becoming too wearing during long typing sessions. That's a pity because I liked everything else about it. Also, the prices here are high: $1800, $2400, $3000 (AUD).

    They are doing good things. LG gram has a competitor made by LG which is a LG ULTRA 17 lightweight 17 inch with 1650. I am mostly apex legends focused and 33 fps is still too low. if this thing could get me 60 fps Id be in.

    The 16 and 17inch versions should include a much bigger battery. Come on... LG is a lithium-ion battery maker themselves. What a wasted opportunity to beat. Aviation rules allow no more than 100Wh batteries, so there is still room for bigger batteries. You probably can stretch the battery life to 12 hours if they have 1080p OLED screen and maybe a 99Wh battery.

    I hate all usbc charging, and I am glad Apple will add magsafe again. It is always better to have USBC charging "AND" a dedicated fast charger. Hopefully magnetic. You do not lose a usbc port, which is terrible on 2 port machines. You have faster charging. You put less wear on your usbc port. It does not fall out as easy as usbc only charging. And here is the deal, you CAN STILL, charge it with a usbc charger when you want. I will never understand why people want "only" usbc charging as the only option, when you can have too. With the exception of aesthetics. I believe apple will do it right as well as many others with good aesthetics, magsafe fast charging, or usbc charging saving a port and offering faster charging. Other than that, very good review. Matthew got 18 hours on his video playback test.

    Great review Dave, really helpful. I use my laptop primarily as a desktop replacement which means I keep it plugged in most of the time. Does the new Gram 17 include some type of program to easily adjust the battery charge threshold? My understanding is that keeping the charge level in the 80%-40% range will help extend the long term health of the battery. Lenovo and Dell include power management software, does LG provide similar software for the Gram 17?
