What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So thin, light and fast! After months of searching and scrutinizing every available full keyboard laptop on the market I chose this LG and could not be happier. It is so unbelievably thin and light and super fast. Having a full keyboard was essential for me in my line of work so I love having the number keys on the right. The touchpad is very responsive. Although I don't use the touchscreen frequently it is an added plus. They battery life is great. Set up was a breeze .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful and quite. I bought this laptop for work as a software developer and it works great. It's specs are good for what I need and can be easily upgraded if I need more memory or storage in the future. The battery life is great and the fan salary never comes on, so it is quite too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic thin and light Great laptop. It is extremely light and has the battery power to last well beyond other laptops. That it can be charged via its USB C port with a USB C cable is also a wonderful feature. The only real negative that I have experienced so far is that every now and then the display either momentarily black screens or freezes. The black screens aren't too bad as they only last for a second or so. The screen freezing though is a bit annoying as only putting the computer into sleep via the power button and then waking it up seems to reliably fix it (although sometimes opening the task manager also works but not always). That being said, this happens quite infrequently and I am hoping a future display driver update will prevent this from happening.

Is it possible to turn off touch? Will battery life be longer if touch is OFF?

Asked by: Rockefeller
If you want to extend your battery life without thinking too much about it, enable Windows 10’s Battery Saver mode. Battery saver performs a few tweaks automatically, like limiting background activity and lowering screen brightness to achieve longer battery life. The biggest battery drain on any modern portable electronic device—whether it’s a laptop, smartphone, or tablet—is the display. Reducing your screen’s brightness is a simple way to squeeze significantly more time from your laptop’s battery. Since the display uses so much power, it’s important not to have it on longer than necessary. You can configure your laptop to automatically go to sleep sooner when you’re not actively using it—or at least turn off its display to save power. Hardware devices you don’t use can also waste battery power for no good reason. For example, if you never use any Bluetooth accessories with your laptop, you can turn off the Bluetooth hardware radio to get some more battery life. ^CP

CAN THE 15Z980 SUPPORT MICROSOFT WINDOWS 10 "HYPER-V" VIRTUALIZATION?

Asked by: MILTON YEN
HI Milton, for the same reasons that the LG gram 13.3” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 13Z980-U.AAW5U1 does not support Hyper-V Virtualization, the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Touchscreen Laptop w/ Intel® Core™ i7 processor and Thunderbolt™ 3 also comes with Windows 10 Home (64 bit) OS and again, 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™ i7-8550U 1.80GHz/4.00GHz is this laptop also supports Intel® Virtualization Technology (VT-x) and Intel® Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O (VT-d)...^IFV
