What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the tiny bezels and battery life This lightweight laptop is great for its pricepoint. It has a responsive i5 intel processor and its lightweight profile allows me to take wherever I go. I love smaller bezels on displays on laptops so this one fits that criteria. I plan on upgrading to an even better model once LG is able to effectively mass produce their next displays. I would like to see a way for them to create as close to a bezel-less design with extremely long battery life. I want them to try and see if a true dark-mode interface could help them achieve this. I don’t mind a little bigger battery to help support a decent graphics card/processor and a sweet sound system. Using this good product has made me want to purchase another improved model designated for commute when they finally release a novel functionality feature such as a beautiful high quality display. A classy but minimalistic design is all the people want these days.

can i ues 2 different M.2 ssd at the same time? one is SATA, and the other one is nvme

Asked by: Hiii
The hard drive for the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 15Z980-U.AAS5U1 is listed as an M.2 SSD and the interface as SATA. The M.2 interface is designed to use either legacy SATA mode or the newer PCI-Express modes but the drive will pick which one to use. There are two M.2 slots in the gram, and NVMe x 4 is written on the left slot which means 4 PCIe lanes are supported, so it works at 4GB/s. The other is labeled as NVMe x 2 so it supports 2 PCIe lanes and works at 2GB/s... ^IFV

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.
