The LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F against the competition

The LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F is now available at Amazon and is positioned as one of the only in its category to offer such a recent and efficient processor with such a true-to-life color display, as well as Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi 6E connectivity, all in such a lightweight chassis.

Chassis, connectors, screen of the LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F

It has an understated appearance with its thin and light black design made of sturdy magnesium alloy and conforms to the US military resistance standard MIL-STD-810G.

This versatile Ultrabook is equipped with good connectivity, including 2 USB-C Thunderbolt 4, Bluetooth 5.1 wireless modules and Wi-Fi 6E ax (newer and more efficient than wifi ac) to communicate and connect remotely, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to, for example, a monitor or a TV, an audio port but also 2 USB 3.0 (compatible with USB 2.0) that guarantees transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if USB 3.0 devices are connected to it.

A fingerprint reader is integrated, you can authenticate yourself by biometric recognition via Windows Hello technology.

The chiclet keyboard can be naturally backlit, which is useful for better distinguishing the keys in a dimly lit environment.

Lovers of true-to-life colors and wide viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, will be pleased that the display adopts DCI-P3 and IPS features. In addition, with its Full HD, the screen lends itself well to the display of High Definition content, while the 16/10th format is more comfortable in height than the classic 16/9th. Thanks to the anti-reflective treatment, the screen offers better visibility than a glossy panel even in a bright environment (eg outdoors).

Performance, autonomy of the LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F

The LG Gram 14Z90Q-G.AA78F may appeal to those looking for a very light, thin and compact laptop PC for general nomadic use.

It offers good overall performance thanks to its 16 GB RAM and its Intel Alder Lake-P processor with consumption controlled and 12 Core i7-1260P hybrid cores.

This core will be of particular interest to creators who occasionally do modest multimedia work with RAM and multicores, such as photo editing or video conversion.

However, if the goal is to frequently perform processing that requires processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to use a PC based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics Map.

Because there is no dedicated graphics card on board here. Despite everything, you can view photos and videos, as well as enjoy modest games thanks to the Iris Xe graphics solution (which we tested).

On the storage side, there is an SSD which clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Because an SSD is quiet and at the same time more energy-efficient, more resistant to shocks and much faster.

In concrete terms, the SSD makes starting/stopping much faster, for example, as well as processing and starting software, and you can access online game cards faster.

Also note that here the SSD offers a large capacity of 1 TB to accommodate multiple files and software, thus competing with what hard drives offer in this area, which is significant.

Finally, on the autonomy side, count on about 10 hours of battery life with light use and will appeal all the more to the nomads because it is very easy to transport thanks to its compactness, its finesse but also its weight below the kilo bar.
