Laptop size is a very personal preference, but from a first-hand usability experience, I found the 14" LG gram Laptop to be very light and ergonomic for a 14" laptop. In terms of portability, I was quite pleased, as I was able to easily manage it and wear it outside on my back for an entire day without feeling like I was carrying a piece of luggage!

I was quite impressed with the low-power consumption as well. This computer managed to hit the 75th percentile for its battery life in MobileMark 2014 Standard. It also achieved a Lenovo Yoga C630 video playback time of only 19 minutes and 30 seconds with a single its Lithium-Ion battery lasting 9 hours and 30 minutes. Of course, with more demanding workloads this battery life may decrease, but it is quite impressive for a computer, even one as modest as this one.

I would've liked to have seen a bigger hard drive in this portable 14" computer as the available space is quite limited. Which brings me to question the reason one would be purchasing this many storage for a portable computer, but if you are shopping on price I am sure you will be satisfied.

This laptop has a gorgeous Full HD IPS screen and a smaller battery life of only 13.5 hours with the same resolution (1920 X 1080).

So, let me first state that I am generally not someone that looks for super-high end laptop computers, or even midrange if you will (there is some value in even the most modest of models too). With that said, I want to make it known that the laptop I have chosen for this list here is not "mint" as some in the industry would say. This laptop does sport a number of superficial issues that I feel after reviewing it we could've glossed over.

The first and most significant is the physical build quality. Now, some of my fellow readers are probably thinking 'Perfect, another criticizing reviewer, there goes John, again, keyboard bashing a computer!! But, because I hold my computer as a tool, which it is, as a tool, I am constantly comparing it to other products, most of which are "tools" as well.
