GadgetGuy’s take – it is nice to see LG notebooks back in Australia

The LG gram 2021 laptop range looks impressive. While Project Evo certification is important, these share the impressive LG notebook heritage for quality, design and Mil-STD 810G construction.

But more importantly, the 90% or more screen-to-body ratio means that the enormous 17” screen fits into a 15” body.
