What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIGHT AS FEATHER AND PERFORMS AS TURBO ENGINE! It is the best laptop I ever owned in my lifetime. The hardware made of excellent material and finish. I'm only planning to upgrade the Ram with additional 16mb and SSD of 500Gb. Everything else is perfect.

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.

Sorry for sounding redundant, answers to prior questions have been quite helpful already, however, I want to confirm that I can add the following to this laptop - Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Performance Solid State Drive

Asked by: Pennie
The Hard Drive Type for the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 15Z980-U.AAS5U1 is listed as M.2 SSD. and M.2 SSDs typically come in three dimensions, which may be deduced from the card name - 2242, 2260, and 2280. "22" represents the width in millimeters (mm), while the next two digits represent the length, also in mm. The longer the drive, the more NAND flash chips can be mounted; hence, more capacity. An M.2 SSD is "keyed" to prevent insertion of a card connector (male) to an incompatible socket (female) on the host. The M.2 specification identifies 12 key IDs on the module card and socket interface but M.2 SSDs typically use three common keys: B, M, and B+M. You will find the key type labeled on or near the edge connector (or gold fingers) of the SSD. Before deploying M.2 SSDs, determine the type of socket on the host and check the module connector keying, as each connector should be inserted only in the appropriate socket. The LG gram supports M type key for NVMe x4 and B+M for SATA SSD (or NVMe x 2)...^IFV

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

Hi Paula. Unlike the RAM on the LG gram 15.6” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i5 processor, Model # 15Z980-U.AAS5U1 which has 2 slots for RAM with the first one being onboard (soldered to the motherboard) and the other being either free/empty or exchangeable, it has two slots for an MV2 type SSD and both slots are addable or removable.

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.
