What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features. Need higher resolution! QHD+ or 4K 4/5. Pros: Best feature - 2 x SSD and free RAM slot. Superlight. Bright screen. Intel 8th Gen CPU. Thin bezel. Camera in right place (on the top). Keyboard is good, but not perfect. Cons: only 1080p option for screen. Glossy screen. Power button placed in wrong place, need press "Del" and here is "Power" and you might lost your work. If I was the creator (designer) of new laptop here is my extra features for next ultrabook: LCD 21:9, 120Hz, QHQ+ or 4K resolution. 1 x USB 3.1 and 1 x USB 3.1 Type C (TB) on each side. One side with SD card slot, another side has microSD card slot. Magnet charging port. 2 x SSD + 2 RAM free slots (user upgradeable). Matte screen option. Power button will placed in correct place. Speakers placed between keys and screen or on each side from keys.

About 14Z980. If I add 16GB Ram in free slot will the laptop works in double channel? Will be available version with 120Hz or 4K in near future? 4K screen is much better for photo and video editing. Thanks

Asked by: Micron
"you cannot install"? - wrong answer. Seems you don't know real situation. The RAM on all Z970 and Z980 series LG gram Laptops is upgradeable. They have 2 slots with 1 x soldered, 1 x upgradeable. my question was about 16gb. "Amber C" please be more accurate with your answers or you not from LG support team? Do you know what is "double channel" means? or you saying "you cannot" because its easy?

Hi Fred4312. The RAM on all our Z970 and Z980 series LG gram Laptops is upgradeable. They have 2 slots with the first one being onboard (soldered to the motherboard), and the other being either free/empty or exchangeable depending on models. The LG gram 14” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 14Z980-A.AAS7U1. In some zip codes, stores that will be carrying this model are taking pre-orders. Regrettably, only Amazon can give you information for when Amazon will get more stock on this product and you would need to contact them for that information. Under the 'Temporarily out of stock', they state "Order now and we'll deliver when available. We'll e-mail you with an estimated delivery date as soon as we have more information. Your account will only be charged when we ship the item."...^IFV

Hello dear LG team. About 14Z980. Dose it support ThunderBolt 3? Can I charge the laptop via USB Type C port and use phone AC adapter or power bank (example Anker 20100). Can we disable UEFI and Security boot? Legacy mode is available in the BIOS?
