What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome laptop I have been using my lg gram 15'' for the past 3 years and it is still running to my expectations. I am a heavy user and I keep on installing and uninstalling software on my laptop but since 3 years I had absolutely no complaint. The white color lg gram is still clean and neat . It is very light to carry it everywhere during meetings. I have many different models of laptop in the past but LG will now be the one I will always buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Light Weight I remember the days of lugging around a big heavy laptop ... or having to sacrifice screen size for a lighter weight. This has both, a great screen size for work and play, as well as being beautifully portable & light weight. I also like the fingerprint scanner and the number of ports that are available. Seems like a winner!

The Key Features list Thunderbolt 3 Interface but the ports say USB 3.0 Type C. These are two different specs. I bought this laptop to thinking it has a Thunderbolt port only to realized you guys said two different things on the site. What's going on?

Asked by: DaveInArizona
Hi DaveinArizona. They are the same thing. Thunderbolt 3 defines a superset of capabilities that run on USB-C connectors and cables. In layman’s terms; it brings Thunderbolt to USB-C and adds major new features and capabilities, such as 40Gbps bandwidth and reduced power consumption while being able to move as much as 100 watts of power. A USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 means a single cable is all you need to power and move a large amount of information, up to and including two 60Hz 4K displays...^IFV

Hi techsupport. Regrettably, the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop w/ Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Thunderbolt™ 3, Model # 15Z980-R.AAS9U1 does not have a dedicated Pause/Break key. You might be able to use the following as a substitute for Break: Ctrl + Fn + F11 or Fn + B or Fn + Ctrl + B or Ctrl + Fn + B or Fn + B or Fn + Esc, or Ctrl + Fn + Shift. Substitutes for Pause are: Ctrl + Fn + F11 or Fn + B or Fn + Ctrl + B, or Ctrl + Fn + B or Fn + B or Fn + Esc or Ctrl + Fn + Shift. On some modern keyboards, the Pause function is assigned to Ctrl + NumLock and the Break function to Ctrl + ScrLock and that might work on some programs...^IFV
