So if you are a mid-range user who would like a good-looking laptop with power, then continue reading this review till the very end.

This model comes with the same design as its brother, and it looks very stylish. The laptop is coated with champagne gold and if you are a fan of the goldpagne color, then this laptop will interest you. It comes in a very small form factor for a 14-inch screen. That is something LG has managed to do and, as a result, you get a bigger screen in a compact laptop.
From the name, you can tell that this laptop is very light. It weighs just around 2.2 pounds and can be taken with you anywhere. You also get all the essential ports which are a good thing. Overall, this is an elegant design language which we think should be followed by others as well.
LG gram 14Z950 Specs
We have a 14-inch full HD IPS display here. This is a very good screen and with a 1080p resolution you will see things with a lot more clarity. The IPS panel makes sure that you can see the picture clearly with the same accuracy from every angle possible.
This display is well suited for watching movies, playing games, and other kinds of media consumption as well. Another impressive part of the display is that it comes with a very small bezel on the sides. This is perfect as it will not interfere when you are watching a favorite movie of yours.
The LG gram 14Z950 is powered by an Intel Core i7 5500U processor that comes with a clocking frequency of 3GHz. This processor belongs to the latest Broadwell generation and has a good reputation when it comes to speed and power saving. You can run any app without losing any performance.
The processor is complemented by the 8GB DDR3L SDRAM in the memory department. This memory is good enough for you to run more than one application at the same time a.k.a. multitasking. Intel’s hyperthreading technology also makes it easy to run multithreaded applications like Office suite and other software.
If you are not happy with this memory, then opt for the higher memory model if available. This is because we feel that upgrading at a later stage is going to be a pain.
If you have to find a con, it easily is the graphics card. For a laptop that is priced at this level, an integrated graphics card is unacceptable. Having said that, you can still play most of the games without any issues. If the game is brand new, you might have to reduce the settings to make it playable.
You get a 256GB solid state drive that is super fast. This is one of the main reasons for the performance of this laptop. It boots Windows in just seconds and applications open very quick. If you are currently using a serial ATA hard drive, then there will be a world of difference when you use this SSD.
It also comes with Windows 10 pre-installed. This is the latest OS from MS and it is way better than the previous versions of Windows. There are a lot of new features that will keep you hooked.
The battery life is one of the pluses for the LG gram 14Z950 laptop. With regular usage, you can easily achieve a battery life of 7 hours, and that is really good by modern day standards.
LG gram 14Z950 Review: Verdict
