Body, Connectors, and Display LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F
Sturdy and in compliance with the US Military Resistance Standard MIL-STD-810G, this laptop with a slim and light silver magnesium alloy design has a discreet and elegant look.
The versatile Ultrabook is well equipped in terms of connectivity with 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, and a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor, for example, two Bluetooth 5.1 units and Wi-Fi ax wireless (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi acFor remote connectivity and connectivity, its audio port ensures without forgetting two USB 3.0 ports (compatible with USB 2.0) ensuring transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals to it.
Authenticate yourself with biometric recognition via Windows Hello thanks to the built-in fingerprint reader.
The button keyboard can be backlit, which is very practical to better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.
As it advertises IPS and DCI-P3, the screen has great viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, with color reproduction more accurately than average. It is of interest to those who manipulate images in any way, and in particular lovers of (ultra) high-resolution content because the screen also adopts a 2.5K definition higher than Full HD, linked to the more comfortable 16/10 format. In height from 16/9. Since it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy screen in a bright environment (eg outdoors) while being more comfortable for the eyes when used for extended periods.
The performance and autonomy of the LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F
The LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F is aimed at those who want a large and comfortable laptop while being thin and light for general purpose Nomadic use.
It really does manage to keep about 12 hours on battery in light use, which is pretty high for a 17in. Most are aware that despite its large shape at the base that is particularly convenient in essentially stable use (eg: at home), its versatility and lightness make it easy to transport without being positioned despite its status as one of the most easily transportable. from compactness.
Obviously to offer such autonomy, this elegant, versatile silver device incorporates energy-efficient components. Such is the case for the 16GB of RAM, the low consumption as well as the quad-core Intel Tiger Lake processor i5-1135G7.
Note, however, that while there is no dedicated graphics card, which makes sense given the positioning of this computer, you can watch photos and videos but also play modest titles with some compromise (such as lowering screen definition) because Iris Xe graphics solution (which Tested by us) Found directly in Core i5.
However, it is better to choose a computer based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card if you often plan to perform work that requires a processor and/or graphics resources. However, this will have an impact on quality, weight, autonomy and heating.
In terms of storage, there’s a 512GB SSD, a capacity that’s in line with what hard drives offer as standard. If this turns out to be very fair, we can of course use external storage. Preferring a USB-C / Thunderbolt / USB 3.0 device is an interesting option for fast transfers.
In any case, SSD offers many advantages over a simple hard disk: lower power consumption, greater durability, silent operation or even faster speed.
Thus the SSD ensures much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than a simple hard disk drive. Thanks to the SSD, the start / stop, processing and launching of the program are much faster for example, and we reach faster on online game cards.
