What people are saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great laptop, light weight but keyboard is fragile I bought this laptop in July 2019 from Costco and having enjoyed it a lot. The laptop looks great, extremely light and easy to carry around. System is fast and very reliable. Typing is smooth and easy. However, the keyboard seems a little fragile. A few keys became loose lately and I had to have them serviced. Overall, it is one of the best laptop I have purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Customer Service The customer service is terrible. My laptop has been under repair for over 3 weeks now. When LG received my product, I called multiple times asking for updates. They told me it was under repair and it would be fixed within 7-10 business days. After 10 business days I called and they told me they just started working on it. When I ask for explanations and answers when I’ll receive my product back, they say they can’t help me. I am very disappointed with LG’s lack of professionalism with this matter.

My laptop says it is pen and touchscreen compatible. I am trying to find a pen/stylus that will work with my LG Gram laptop. Model 15Z980-A.AAS8U1

Regrettably, there is nothing on our site that states that the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 15Z980-A.AAS8U1 is compatible with pens/styli. It has a touchscreen that you can use your fingers with, but it is not optimized for use with touch pens. The LG gram 14” 2-in-1 Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Wacom Pen, Model # 14T990-U.AAS8U1 is the only model in our current lineup that is compatible with the Wacom Pen and comes with an included Wacom AES 2.0 Pen...^IFV

how do you get 16 hours of battery life? Mine is showing that 67% is only going to last 6 hours. Although a minute ago it said 2.5 hours. What can you actually do with it to make it last so long?

Asked by: raksiam1
Settings such as screen brightness, and network connectivity will reduce the length of time a battery lasts. Running multiple programs will also have an effect on the battery life. If you need additional hints or tips on using your LG laptop, give our computer specialists a call at 800-243-0000.

Can I add an additional SSD drive for Lg Gram 15Z980-A.AAS8U1 15.6"? If so, what is part # ?

Asked by: Texasunhappy
The LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 15Z980-A.AAS8U1 comes with a 512GB M.2 SSD (Solid State Drive). It has two SSD slots and you can add another SSD in the empty slot or install two new SSDs. The SSD type is MV2 and is an Adata SSD. LG does not manufacture SSDs so we do not have a part number. You can find Adata SSDs on Amazon or in most Computer Stores if you want to stay with the brand that comes installed on the laptop or inquire about other brands... ^IFV

What is the Thunderbolt 3 feature that everyone keeps asking about? I was looking at buying the 8U1 version of the 15Z980, which may not have Thunderbolt. What functionality would I be missing?

Asked by: P J S
Hi P J S. The LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 15Z980-A.AAS8U1 does not feature a Thunderbolt™ 3 port. Thunderbolt™ 3 supports connecting multiple displays to your computer by sending video through the Thunderbolt cable using DisplayPort 1.2 video standards. This allows you to connect any monitor that uses DisplayPort or one of the compatible types of connections, such as mini DisplayPort. It uses the new USB Type C connector instead of the Mini DisplayPort adapter that earlier versions of Thunderbolt used. It was developed by Intel way back in 2011. When USB 3.0 was capable of data transfer speeds up to 5 Gigabits per second (or 640 Megabytes per second), the first generation of Thunderbolt was capable of twice that. But unlike USB, Thunderbolt could transfer multiple types of data: not just serial data to storage devices and peripherals, but also video data to displays. Furthermore, it was able to daisy-chain devices together, so you could connect a hard drive to your computer, and then a display to the hard drive, and everything would work as it was meant to. Not all USB Type C ports support Thunderbolt 3. Mobile devices like smartphones and tablets may use the connector, but the Thunderbolt platform is only available on Intel processors and most mobile devices don’t have Intel inside. As such, many USB Type C peripherals won’t have Thunderbolt controllers included. You can plug a USB Type C device into a Thunderbolt 3 port, it will work but won’t support Thunderbolt features. Similarly, a Thunderbolt 3 peripheral plugged into a regular USB Type C port will work but won’t support Thunderbolt features. Because Thunderbolt 3 brings with it the latest version of DisplayPort, you can use a single cable to drive two 4K displays at 60 Hz. If you like to edit videos or work with giant photo libraries, a Thunderbolt 3 hard drive enclosure can give you lots of super fast storage. If you’re willing to forego the 4K displays and focus purely on storage, Thunderbolt 3 could theoretically have transfer speeds of up to 5 Gigabytes per second...^IFV
