Pros: light , quality , fast, picture, HDMI out, the battery life , and the battery life
Cons: being so light its strange feels cheap but its not, not recommended for gaming besides older titles , storage 256 , but micro SD is nice
Overall Review: for students , people on the go its great its light and battery life is unmatched , not having to always worry that you only have a few min charge left you can literally go few days with out needing a charge.
Pros: -**** BATTERY LIFE BATMAN!!! From full charge to full drain, plus Windows updates, some YouTubing, and benchmark graphics (which did not do well for graphics by the way), this thing finally crapped out at 10 hours for heavy load, and a whopping 16hours for idle consumer use. In my opinion, this is a huge draw for students.
-Super lightweight! It is like typing on a feather and for those who might be students and carrying around books, this is a big deal. Or those who work on the go, this is a big deal there. Nobody wants to haul around 7 pounds of computing power when this laptop offers competitive working power for less than 3 pounds.
-LG was able to cram in a 10-key number pad. That is nice when comparing to other 15" laptops. But for a person who might perform data entry, it is a little slim. See CONS.
-The laptop has USB-C, also termed Thunderbolt. This has a potential for 40Gb/s, but honestly, cable technology needs to catch up. Therefore, I consider this to be a specialty, besides it being required to use Ethernet cabling. For which, LG graciously provides you an adapter. Thanks LG!
Cons: -**** BLOATWARE BATMAN! Can LG come up with more apps??? I think I spent over an hour of removing un-needed applications.
-I am disappointed with LG in regards to packaging. Some might argue that Electro Static Discharge (ESD) is a thing of the past, but this laptop came with plasic sheeting covering it's plastic enclosre. When you take it off, you can feel the electrons radiating from the laptop. Nevertheless, the ESD did not damage the laptop, but it was a little shocking (pun intended).
-Left-Clicking is horrendous!
-The Enter Key was also a little skinny. I would often time find myself hitting the the left arrow key instead of enter. Pretty annoying in my opinion. I found myself slamming the key thing, "Why don't you enter!? Oh. That's the numpad!"
-The 10-key number pad is a little skinny. It was just slighly awkward to use compared to all the other pads on comparable laptops and I found myself fat fingering quite a bit. If you are in a role for data entry, you might risk a lot of mistakes.
-Coming in at $1,250.00, there really isn't a comparable bang for the buck. For example, the Lenovo Yoga 700 is a convertible laptop to tablet, which a slightly smaller screen. It doesn't have USB-C, but it has everything else, plus some. And you only have to fork out about $1,000.00. The LG has less computing power, and a fancy USB-C that, in my opinion, is just bragging rights until cable manufacturers can catch up. In comparison, it is more expensive and a little lacking in FUNCTIONAL features, like the ability to dock the laptop.
Overall Review: -Key features that bring this into a competitive nature is the battery life and slightly larger screen size. That is basically it.
-Who would buy this? Students primarily. Most companies know enough about cost vs performance and this laptop is a little on the pricy side for coprorate use, and doesn't appear to offer any docking abilities. And as far as I know, USB-C does not yet offer such options. But I could be wrong on that.
-Windows 10 was not tested. Why? Everyone knows Windows 10 Home x64 by this point and should not be considered a testing point for this laptop.
-Comes with 802.11ac wireless. Most routers and access points support this. When tested, it met standard capabilities. Nothing special.
-Integrated graphics hinders computing/video capabilities because they share with each other.
Pros: Light weight was one of my wife's requirements. This laptop weights 2.4 pounds.
Cons: No problems yet.
Overall Review: The display should have 4K native resolution. A M2 PCIe SSD would be better than the M2 SATA SSD. Laptop looks great. Will be used for mild Internet usage and gaming. Getting close to retirement, so this could be her last laptop. I would recommend this laptop.
