Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything i could ever want in a laptop I went into buying this laptop well informed and already excited for how much of an amazing product this seemed to be. And after spending almost a month with it, I’d say it was everything i had thought and hoped it would be and more. Incredibly light for portability, and since i got this for college, thats very important for me. Great performance with the i5, 8 GB RAM, and SSD. In a laptop this small and light, it still amazes me how much power is in this small package. The screen is FANTASTIC as well, better than i thought it would be in fact. Everything about this laptop is fantastic, i have absolutely nothing to complain about. Bravo on such an amazing product LG! I’ll be using throughout college for sure.

CAN THE 13Z980 SUPPORT MICROSOFT WINDOWS 10 "HYPER-V" VIRTUALIZATION?

Asked by: MILTON YEN
Hi Milton. The LG gram 13.3” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 13Z980-U.AAW5U1 comes with Windows 10 Home (64 bit) OS and according to Microsoft, the Hyper-V role cannot be installed on Windows 10 Home. You will need to upgrade from Windows 10 Home edition to Windows 10 Professional or Education. Hyper-V is built into Windows as an optional feature -- there is no Hyper-V download. The other obstacle you will have is that one of the requirements for Hyper-V is that the CPU has to have support for VM Monitor Mode Extension (VT-c on Intel CPU's). The 8th Gen. Intel® Core™ i5-8250U 1.60GHz/3.40GHz is this laptop supports Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) and Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)...^IFV

power manager was not available after this windows version(1709) was updated. did you fix this problem?

Asked by: forhelp
Windows has always used build numbers. They represent significant updates to Windows. Traditionally, most people have referred to Windows based on the major, named version they’re using—Windows Vista, 7, 8, and so on. Within those versions, we also had service packs to refer to: Windows 7 Service Pack 1, for example. With Windows 10, things have changed a bit, and Microsoft did away with with service packs, instead moving to releasing two big builds each year and giving them fun names—the next big one being the Creator’s Update in Spring, 2017 which is version 1709. The LG gram 13.3” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 13Z980-U.AAW5U1 comes with Windows 10 Home. In addition to builds, there also are still different editions of Windows 10—Home, Professional, Enterprise, and so on—with different features. Microsoft is also still offering both 64-bit and 32-bit versions of Windows 10, as well. If you’re using Home and you’d like to upgrade to Professional, you can upgrade to the Professional edition from within Windows 10. Switching to Windows 10 Enterprise or Education editions will require a complete reinstall and a special key that isn’t made available to normal home Windows users. The version number gives you the best information on what version of Windows 10 you’re running. The number is based on the date of the most recent large build release and uses a YYMM format. For example, in the screenshot above, the “1607” version tells us that the version we’re running is from the 7th month (July) of 2016. That’s the big Anniversary Update of Windows 10. The Fall Creators Update was released in September of 2017, so it’s version 1709. Model # 13Z980-U.AAW5U1 is a 2018 model so it will have a different build number which should have all the new features including those that were new for build 1709...^IFV
