Hello All.
I've been reading about 17-inch laptops and I am half way to deciding to wait a while and get the 2022 Dell XPS 17 with the 12 gen everything. However, I was curious. The 2021 LG Gram 17 is not upgradeable in terms of RAM. It is universally accepted as a better machine than the 2020 edition, for various esoteric reasons. The 2020, however, is upgradeable RAM-wise. Would a 2020 LG Gram 17 with the RAM maxed out be a better machine than the 2021 with the 16GB of RAM?

Thanks.

Probably not because 16GB of RAM is usually more than enough for most users and the 2021 model has faster RAM, Iris Xe graphics, a better CPU and Thunderbolt 4.

The soldered RAM however is a serious concern because the device can never be upgraded nor repaired if the onboard RAM fails.
