What people are saying
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light. Just amazing screen quality and size. I bought mine from Costco. I went there to replace my "beloved" Lenovo Thinkpad that I have used for many years. Costco had an elegant display of the gram. I was impressed with the lightweight and the LG screen quality. The battery life will last for a long international trip. As a traveler to Asia, I favor passing through Incheon, Seoul because it's super clean. That impression of So. Korea was the final tipping point for choosing a Korean brand. The quality of their TVs and appliances convinced me they know what they're doing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am a big fan of Gram series! This is my 3rd gram!!! The foremost reason I bought the gram in the first place was weight. (of course!) My 1st gram met my needs well, so I got the 2nd one. Then this 3rd gram. I am so happy with my choice. The battery life is amazing and I love this big screen with this lightweight. I like so much the touch feeling of the key board too,

Hi - I have a the model 17Z990-R.AAS7U1 (Costco Version) and am wondering whether this computer can support two external monitors through the Thunderbolt 3 port? If not, what is the best way to connect two external monitors to the computer?

Asked by: Alan316
Thunderbolt™ 3 ports allow you to connect as many as 6 devices, daisy chained, through a single port. It is based on the DisplayPort 1.2 specification and can support up to 2 streams (eight lanes) of DisplayPort 1.2 video bandwidth. A single cable now provides four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other cable, while also supplying up to 100W of power. It can support one 4K display (4096 x 2160) 30-bit @ 120 Hz One 5K display (5120 x 2880) 30-bit @ 60 Hz Two 4K displays each (4096 x 2160) 30-bit @ 60 Hz. To connect two displays to the Thunderbolt™ 3 port of the LG gram 17” Ultra-Lightweight Laptop with Intel® Core™ i7 processor, Model # 17Z990-R.AAS8U1, you will need an adapter that enables connection of two 4K DisplayPort (DP) displays @ 60Hz...^IFV

I have set up the LG gram 17Z990-R.AAS7U1 with a Targus DSU400US Thunderbolt 3 Dock. Works well. However, the power button on the dock will not start LG gram. Must use button on the LG gram. Any config settings which could enable dock to start?
