LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F Against the Competition
LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F Now Available at Amazon And it ranks as one of the only companies in its class to offer such a modern and efficient processor with a true color display but also Thunderbolt 4 connectivity and Wi-Fi 6E, all in such a light chassis.
Body, Connectors, and Display LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F
It has a simple look with its slim and light black design made of strong magnesium alloy in compliance with the US Military Resistance Standard MIL-STD-810G.
The versatile Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity including 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.1 wireless modules, and a Wi-Fi 6E axe (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for remote connection and connectivity, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect to a monitor or TV for example, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB devices are connected 3.0 to.
A fingerprint reader is integrated, you can authenticate yourself by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.
The button keyboard can of course be backlit, which is practical to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
Fans of very loyal colors and large viewing angles both horizontally and vertically will be pleased that the screen adopts DCI-P3 and IPS characteristics. In addition, the screen fits well with displaying high-definition content in Full HD, while its 16/10th format is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9 format. Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors).
The performance and autonomy of the LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F
The LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F can appeal to those who are looking for a very light, slim and compact laptop for general purpose Nomadic use.
It offers good overall performance thanks to its 16GB of RAM, an Intel Alder Lake-P processor with controlled consumption, and a 12-core i7-1260P Hybrid Core.
This core will be of particular interest to creators who occasionally do modest multimedia work with random access memory (RAM) and multiple components, such as image editing or video conversion.
However, if the goal is to perform processing that requires a processor and/or graphics resources, it is best to resort to a computer based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
Because there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. Despite everything, you can see photos and videos but also enjoy mediocre games thanks to the Iris Xe graphics solution (which we tested).
On the storage side, there is an SSD that clearly enhances responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard disk. Because SSD is silent while being more energy efficient, more shock resistant and much faster.
Best Known Price: 1699€
Concretely, thanks to the SSD, startup / stop processes are much faster, for example, such as processing and launching programs, and you can access online game cards much faster.
Also note that the SSD here offers a large 1TB capacity to accommodate multiple files and programs, thus competing with what hard drives offer in this area, which is important.
Finally, in terms of autonomy, count on about 10 hours of battery operation in light use and it will attract more nomads because it is very easy to transport thanks to its small size and accuracy but also its weight under the kilogram shaft.
