The LG Gram strikes a nice balance between exceptional battery life, an impressively lightweight design, and solid quad-core performance.
LG didn't change the design from 2019 -- for better or worse. Made from magnesium alloy, it weighs only 2.5 pounds (1.1kg), but LG runs it through seven military-grade durability tests including ones for shock and vibration, too. Still, the body, in particular the lid and keyboard deck, has some flex and combined with its light weight makes it feel slightly flimsy. I wouldn't be too rough -- it's not a rugged laptop -- but it's solid for a daily commute.
