What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from In Love I brought this a few weeks ago and i love it no complaints. It's fast has such a beautiful clear screen with a lightup key board. I use it for my business and I'm very satisfied

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Product! I admit, once I love a brand, I'm all in. The Gram is my fourth LG product. And, true to form, it is a shockingly good machine. It is featherweight, fast, beautiful graphics, great sound (even from the built-in speakers), and quiet. I opted for the i5 14", as I really wanted the white body. I agonized for a while over the price, but having the computer now, I have zero regrets. Thanks LG!

What wireless card is used, and how can it's range be improved for weak connections? It is performing worse than a phone's wifi.

Asked by: FO61
Hello, to check which wireless card is in your PC: 1: Hold the “Windows” key and press “E” on the keyboard. It will open the file explorer window. 2: Right click on “This PC” and click on “Properties” 3: the properties window will open up. Click on the “Device Manager” 4: Now once the Device manager window opens up, click on the expand button next to “Network adapters” and you will get the list of the network adapters. Cell phones and PCs can not be compared as they are not in the same class. To improve the Wi-Fi signal, you might need to get an additional device such as range extender or dual band Mesh Wi-Fi system. ^AC

Continuing the previous question, the OEM setup of two 4GB DDR modules of RAM run in a dual channel mode, correct? Won't replacing one of these with a single 8GB or 16GB module reduce the speed benefits of DD4/dual channel/higher memory speeds?

Asked by: FO61
Hi F061. Please pardon us for repeating the same answer to your follow up, but the answer to your followup cannot be rephrased differently and is still that RAM has two main attributes that affect a system's performance: memory capacity and memory speed, so adding RAM to the LG gram 14” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 14Z980-U.AAW5U1 allows you processor to read data from RAM much faster than that from the hard drive. Having a lot of memory means that you can quickly switch back and forth between the different applications without Windows writing the process memory out to the pagefile. (The pagefile performs much the same purpose as RAM, but the data is stored on your much slower hard drive.) However, bumping up the RAM does not increase the speed of a regular application. Additional RAM allows the laptop to do more tasks at once and does not actually make it faster...^IFV

How will memory speeds and overall performance by affected by replacing one RAM stick with a larger size one, ie an 8 or 16GB module, while one original 4GB one that cannot be removed remains?

Asked by: jamie1988
The LG gram 14” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 14Z980-U.AAW5U1 has 2 slots for RAM with the first one being onboard (soldered to the motherboard), and the other being either free/empty or exchangeable. It has two M.2 slots that support both SATA and PCIe, but the SSD in it is a SATA type so it works as SATA. The left slot is labeled as NVMe x 4 meaning 4 PCIe lanes are supported and the right slot is labeled as NVMe x 2 meaning it supports 2 PCIe lanes...^IFV
