    Phoronix: LG Gram Laptops To Be Better Supported By The Next Linux Kernel

    While LG isn't often thought of as a laptop manufacturer, their Gram laptop line-up has recently been making some waves. The LG Gram laptops are powered by Intel Core CPUs and are designed to be slim and sleek yet durable. With the next Linux kernel (4.20~5.0), they should be better supported should you want to wipe the default Microsoft Windows installation...

    LG cant even make a K270 wireless keyboard that works 12"+ away, and now they think they can make a laptop?

    We may be living in the tech apocolypse where everything sucks.

          I would kill for a laptop with a decent 17" 16:10 screen, and the low weight is a nice albeit not critical bonus. But that cramped, stripped-down keyboard and no discrete touchpad mouse buttons? Yikes!

            The 2020 LG Gram 17 was very recently released in the US and it boasts a significantly improved keyboard layout, more effective cooling system, Iris Pro integrated graphics, and an NVMe SSD. The screen is still super-glossy, but you can buy an anti-glare screen protector for it (if you're handy with such things). I haven't yet seen any real-world reports on how well the 2020 model supports Linux; distro-specific tips for the 2019 model can be found here and there on the Web.
