Reviewers from cnet have found the following[***]:
LG uses a 10th-gen 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-10510U processor in the 2020 Gram 14 2-in-1. It's a fine choice for business and school tasks and entertainment other than gaming. Despite LG spotlighting the laptop's DTS:X Ultra audio, the speakers sound thin.

  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
LG just updated its Gram 14 2-in-1, which weighs just 2.52 pounds. Despite its light weight, the Gram 14 isn't the thinnest laptop around. The new Gram 14 with its quad-core Intel Core i7-10510U scored 5,244 and 14,789.

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The LG Gram 14 2-in-1 is the company's first effort at moving beyond light laptops into the convertible space. It's equipped with an 8th-generation quad-core “Whiskey Lake” Core i7-8565U, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SATA solid-state drive (SSD) and a 14-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1080 or 157 PPI) display. At $1,500, that places the Gram 14 solidly in premium laptop territory.

Pros[**]
  • Lightweight and light
  • Excellent battery life
  • Long battery life for a 2-in-1
Cons[**]
  • Lacks a 4K display option

Sentiment Score[*] 70%
Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
LG Gram 14 2-in-1 is unbelievably light but rugged enough to take a bump or two. It's not Lenovo Yoga Book C930 light (10.3 x 7.1 x 0.4 inches, 1.7 pounds), but at 2.5 pounds, it's definitely one of the daintier notebooks I've reviewed. With its twin 360-degree hinges, the Gram can transform from laptop to tent, tablet and stand mode.

Pros[**]
  • Extremely light and rugged
  • Excellent battery life
  • Comfortable keyboard and touchpad
Cons[**]
  • Dim display
  • Weak audio

Reviewers from laptopmag have found the following[***]:
LG's Gram 14 2-in-1 is a practical choice for anyone who wants a large display in a featherweight chassis. The Gram 14 can fold back into a tablet or be positioned in tent mode for viewing movies or Powerpoint slides without the keyboard in the way. The keyboard is perfectly adequate; the keys are a tad stiff for my liking.

Pros[**]
  • Powerful performance
  • Lightweight design
  • Long battery life
  • Military-grade durability
Cons[**]
  • Keyboard feels stiff
  • Keyboard is a bit stiff

notebookcheck[6]

Sentiment Score[*] 59%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
LG Gram 14T90N is one of the lighter subnotebooks in its category. The keyboard remains identical to the 13.3-inch Gram 13 down to the size, layout, and feel. The stylus is thinner than the Microsoft Surface Pen and so it can be difficult to grip for larger hands.
Find the original article here.
Pros[**]
  • Very good battery life for a subnotebook
  • High-quality aluminum alloy chassis
  • Very good keyboard and touchpad
  • Long battery life
Cons[**]
  • Low-contrast display
  • Keyboard feedback could be firmer
  • Slow SD card reader

pcmag[7]

Sentiment Score[*] 75%
Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The LG gram 14 2-in-1 ($1,499 as tested) isn't the ideal tablet replacement. It faces stiff competition from the elite lines in the Dell, HP, and Lenovo stables. A "Whiskey Lake" Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, 16GB of memory, and a roomy 512GB SSD add up to chart-topping performance.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful screen
  • Sleek design
  • Good battery life
Cons[**]
  • Only one USB Type-C port

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
LG's gram 14 2-in-1 looks and works just like a standard laptop. With a quick rotation of the display, it converts into a tablet. The standard gram 14 starts at $1,149 (about £1207, AU$2,136) for an Intel Core i5.

Pros[**]
  • Lightweight and portable
  • Sculpted keyboard and stylus
  • Good battery life
