Design of the LG Gram 16Z90Q

This LG Gram 16Z90Q is an ideal model for those who have to be from one place to another all day. What if I go to the office, what if today I have to telework from home, what if now I have to catch a plane, what if I don’t concentrate and go to the library to study… Does it ring a bell? If so, surely one of your priorities is to have a very light model to avoid overloading yourself with more weight than necessary. But, is it possible to have a lightweight laptop that does not give up good power? Yes, and precisely this LG 16Z90Q-G.AD78B fully complies.

It has dimensions of  354.5 x 242.1 x 16.8 mm and a weight of only  1.1 kg . very light. It is available in  black color . Its magnesium and nanocarbon chassis offers great resistance. In fact, it has passed up to seven MIL-810G military standard tests so you won’t be afraid to take it out of the house. It would not make sense to have a laptop focused on mobility and that in turn did not have any type of resistance, right?

We continue and talk to you now about a super interesting detail that we find in its design and it is the  fingerprint reader integrated in the power key so that the start-up of your computer is fast, easy and safe. We also have a quick access button to disconnect the webcam and microphone. You know, above all, security and privacy.

16-inch screen

It is worth noting that despite being an ultralight laptop, the dimensions of its screen are super generous. The diagonal of its available reaches  16 inches , with an  IPS WQXGA panel (2,560 x 1,600 px) and 16:10 format . The result is a screen that lives up to expectations, with capabilities to give us good viewing both indoors and outdoors.

This is taken care of by its  anti- glare technology and its brightness level of  350 nits . It is not one of the best data on the market if we compare it with its competition, but it is enough for what we can expect from it. In addition, to prevent our eyes from getting tired, it incorporates two modes: DayLight and Reading. 

Very powerful hardware

This LG 16Z90Q-G.AD78B does not disappoint in its technical specification sheet. We find ourselves with an  Intel Core i7-1260P processor , which reaches up to 4.70 GHz. This is accompanied by a  32 GB LPDDR5 RAM memory and a  1 TB dual-slot SSD hard drive , so we can expand up to 4 TB if for some casual falls short.

And what about your graph? If you want to play with this laptop or consume content in 4K, it incorporates an  Iris Xe graphics so you don’t lose fluidity at any time. Supports 4K graphics at 120 Hz.
