Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for school! Ok so I don't know much about tech. I watched a lot of videos for the best laptop for a business major, and I can agree! My laptop is really light, so it's great for my hour long commute withiut putting too much weight OR bulk in my bag. It's honestly like I'm carrying around another notebook. The battery life is great too. I leave at 7am and get back home around 5, and I don't have to lug my charger around, which is a huge bonus when I'm crammed in the library and there arent any outlets available. It's a good laptop and a definite investment for school.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent battery life and it's unbelievably light So far I've been had this product for a month now and all I can say is it has far exceeded my expectations. For those who are wondering about its weight, it's super light. I'm currently a college student and when my classmates tried giving it a hold, they were so shocked and surprised when comparing it to their own laptops. As for performance, it handles Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop, Audition and Lightroom seamlessly for me. And it handles Microsoft Office applications plus Chrome with no issues. I highly recommend this 14" model in particular because not only is it a perfect size for portability but I feel it's the most balanced of the other two. Since 15" can get a little to difficult plus the battery life would suffer more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Consumer’s Reports Helps I found the information in Consumer Reports to be very helpful while shopping for a new laptop. High Performance, Good Battery Life and overall weight and a HDMI port were my requirements. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Now I can take my laptop everywhere! The last couple of laptops I bought were Macbooks but this time around when I needed to upgrade I thought about what I wanted in a laptop and there was not a Macbook that met my needs. My requirements were: 1) Light, as close to two pounds as possible. I travel quite a bit and did not take my Macbook pro with me because of the weight. I would use my ipad, but I really needed a real computer. 2) Must charge with USB C. I would like to be able to use the same charger for my phone and laptop. 3) Touchscreen 4) Must have either a fingerprint sensor or facial recognition to log in, I am so over typing my password all the time 5) Good battery life, because finding a power plug at the airport (especially during a delay) can be a pain. 6) Not requirements but would be nice – at least one USB A port and a quiet fan or no fan at all After doing lots of research the LG gram was the computer that best met my requirements. So far, I am loving it! I mostly use it for productivity tasks, lots of Excel, PowerPoint, Word, email ,browsing and a ridiculous amount of chrome tabs. My Macbook is still around because I have not finished transferring all of the files yet and I must say I have not picked it up for use since I got the gram. I thought moving from Apple would be hard but so far so good. And while this machine is not the cheapest windows machine it is cheaper than the Macbook I would have purchased. Now what can be improved: The screen is very glossy. I wish this model was available with more than 8gb of ram, but I was able to upgrade to 16gb easily because there is an empty slot. I wish the charging port and the USB C port were on opposite sides so I could pick what size I want to charge on. The speakers are just so so. I have found they are loud enough for me most of the time when working on a table but since the speakers face down if I have it on my lap the sound can get muffled. While I said I don’t miss using my Macbook there is one thing I miss about it. There are tons of cases, skins and sleeves that are designed for every apple product. I only found one company that make skins for the gram. Overall I love my new laptop! If portability and battery life are top on your list the gram is worth checking out.

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.

I've now 2x seen questions asking if this can be charged via USB-C, & both times replies only with a def'n of USB-C & stating that the Gram can be used to charge other devices; you never confirmed whether the laptop itself can be charged via USB-C..?

Can the 14Z980-A.AAS7U1 be charged using the USB-C port instead of having to use the external AC adapter?

Asked by: TomB123
The LG gram 14” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 14Z980-A.AAS7U1 features a USB 3.0 Type-C port on it. USB Type-C can support various new USB standards like USB 3.1 and USB power delivery (USB PD). The USB PD specification is also closely intertwined with USB Type-C and the USB PD specification supported by USB-C ups this power delivery to 100 watts. It’s bi-directional, so a device can either send or receive power. And this power can be transferred at the same time the device is transmitting data across the connection. This kind of power delivery could even let you charge a laptop, which usually requires up to about 60 watts...^IFV

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
