I am wondering if this model really has one free slot to add 8GB ram. According to the tech spec on the official webpage, it has 8 GB (4GB * 2), which means there is no free slot and the two slots are already taken. But, in Q&A, LG says one is free.

Does this model support 4k monitor out via the USB-C? If I have a USB C hub adapter with USB 3.0 and HDMI port, would I be able to use several devices at the same time ie. monitor, external HD and printer?

Asked by: Aey_RiceBoy
Hi Aey_RiceBoy. It can get a little confusing, but USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 are almost the same things. The USB Implementers Forum, the group responsible for developing, publishing, and certifying USB ports and standards has said that “the USB 3.1 specification absorbed USB 3.0, meaning the terms USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 Gen 1 are synonymous.” The Type-C port on the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 15Z980-U.AAS5U1 is a USB 3.0 Type-C port. There are adapters available that will let you connect an HDMI 4K monitor. The Intel® UHD Graphics 620 in the 15Z980-U.AAS5U1 is capable of supporting three independent displays. Please contact the manufacturer for your USB-C hub adapter to inquire if you can use it to use several devices at the same time...^IFV
