The LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F against the competition
The LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F is currently displayed in Promotion at ‘s house Amazon† Darty and the fnac† It is positioned as one of the few in its class to use a large format with such a high-definition display with such natural colors, Thunderbolt connectivity and such significant autonomy.
Chassis, connectors, screen of the LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F
Robust with its compliance with the US military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G, this laptop with a thin and light silver magnesium alloy design has an elegant and discreet appearance.
This versatile Ultrabook is well equipped in terms of connectivity with its 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, its practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to, for example, a TV or monitor, its Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, the audio port without forgetting the 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible), which guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 when you connect USB 3.0 peripherals to it.
You can authenticate yourself by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology thanks to the integrated fingerprint reader.
The chiclet keyboard can be backlit, which is very useful for better distinguishing the keys in a dimly lit environment.
Because it advertises IPS and DCI-P3, the screen has great viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, while rendering colors much more true than average. Interesting for those who manipulate images in any form, and in particular lovers of (Very) High Definition content as the screen also adopts a 2.5K definition higher than Full HD, associated with a more comfortable 16/10th format . the 16/9. Because it is non-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility than a glossy panel in bright environments (eg outdoors), while being more soothing to the eyes with prolonged use.
Performance, autonomy of the LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F
The LG Gram 17Z90P-G.AA56F is aimed at those who want to get a comfortable large format laptop that is thin and light for general nomadic use.
Indeed, it can last about 12 hours on the battery with light use, which is very high for a 17 inch. And all the more remarkable is that despite the large size at the base which is particularly comfortable for mainly sedentary use (eg at home), its finesse and lightness facilitate transport without however positioning it as one of the easiest to transport around. of compactness.
To provide such autonomy, this elegant silver versatile Ultrabook includes energy-efficient components. This is the case with the 16 GB RAM, the low consumption and the Intel Tiger Lake Quad Core i5-1135G7 processor.
Note, however, that despite the lack of a dedicated graphics card, which makes sense given the placement of this PC, you can view photos and videos, but also play modest titles with some concessions (e.g. reduction in screen definition) because the Iris Xe graphics solution (tested by us) present, directly housed in the Core i5.
Nevertheless, it is better to opt for a PC based on a non-low power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card if you plan to do frequent work that requires processor and/or graphics resources. However, this will have an impact on finesse, weight, autonomy and heating.
In terms of storage, there is a 512 GB SSD, a capacity that matches what hard drives offer as standard. If this turns out to be too fair, we can of course use an external storage space. Preferring a USB-C / Thunderbolt / USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option to get fast transfers.
In any case, an SSD offers many advantages over a simple hard drive: lower energy consumption, greater robustness, quiet operation or even higher speed.
For example, the SSD provides much better fluidity and responsiveness in use than a simple hard drive. Thanks to the SSD, for example, starting/stopping, processing and starting up software is much faster and we get to the map of online games faster.
